Hi Everyhone

Post by sue h on Tue Oct 30, 2012 8:52 am

Hi everyone, my name is Sue
I have just bought home an African Grey called Sammi, I have only just bought him home this weekend. He is gorgeous, three years old in December. The owner sold him because she is having to work full time and knows it would be unfair to leave him alone all the time. She did say he preferred women and we have really bonded and fallen in love (well I have to be sure) he comes to me I say head down and he loves me tickling him, he drinks from my cup, chats away etc. He, unfortunately, dosnt seem to like anyone else is this normal? can anyone give me some advice? I have two dogs and a cat but luckily he was bought up with two staffs (same breed as mine). I have been recommended this site by a friend and look forward to having a good read.
Forgive me if I have posted where i shouldnt have etcx

Hi and welcome

A lot of the time parrots do chose there human it just depends how well socialised they were as babies, just wait a few weeks for him to settle in and I'm sure he will be ok

Always be cautious of the dogs and the cat around the bird I have 2 dogs and would never let them to close to each other

We love pictures on this site lol

Hi Sue, welcome to the forum, glad you've joined us.

Love greys, they're amazing, I have three, two congo greys and a timneh. I don't think it's unusual for any birdie to take one particular person to love the most. Possibly in Sammi's case you spend the most time with him and pay him the most attention so you have made him feel safe and secure again after moving from his former home.

If you have particular difficulties with Sammi's attitude towards different people and you describe the incidents to us, people here have the experience to work through things with you to try to help Sammi integrate into your household.

Love staffy's by the way, they have such gentle natures. A little girl named Steffi Staffi visits here very often and all the birdies love her.

We will all look forward to hearing all about Sammi and seeing loads of photos, have a wonderfully magical life together.

Sue

Hello,
Welcome to the forum. Your new arrival sounds like he has settled in very well.
All of ours birds prefer one or the other of us so it is normal.
Sammi sound slots of fun!

Hi sue and sammi, welcome to the forum! As said, it is normal for birds to bond with one person, whilst it doesn't always happen, most of ours prefer either myself or my partner to varying degrees, whether it's because they prefer male or female, or they just prefer us in general. Looking forward to hearing more about how sammi is settling in, if you need any help posting piccies just ask Smile

Hi di, im still so in love with Sammi but hes still not taking to other people so well, hes talking more and demanding drinks out of my cup etc and wants me to stroke him all the time, he loves grapes, biscuits, anything im eating. Seem to have been too busy to have a real look on forum and how to reply etc. It looks confusing but as with Sammi it just needs time ha ha xx

Confusing this forum....!!! honestly it's easy to use, just click onto Reply on the bit you want to reply to. Show Sammi how to do it!!

Does he eat seeds, pellets or something else? if you look under the heading Seed, Pellets & Human Foods, woodlandtreespirit aka Kate
has put up a post asking what folks birds eat, so you can find your way to there easily.

Mine have Tidy Mix, they prefer that as well as fruit & veg daily.

Hi Di, I am still giving sammi the mix that the owner gave me with peanuts. I will look into the above when I run out, he seems to like almost everything, still extremely attached to me but we are taking it slowlyx

Don't forget to go over to Photo of the Month competition and vote, you have 2 votes and I expect today may be the last day to cast them.

thanks Steve, Sammi still only loves me so much after a week in fact he loves cuddles so much, i put one picture on but will try sort out how to do more. Yes very careful with the dogs as they will think he is a pigeon which they constantly chase in the woods
