It is the best known of the African Greys and is the nominate species of its genus. This parrot is also known by the common name Red Tailed Grey.Our congo African Grey parrots have a very long lived and can live 50 or more years in captivity, possibly up to 70 years. They make a nice “jungle” sound when relaxed. When threatened or frightened they make a growling sound.Foods for your pet will include a ready made large hookbill seed mix enriched with vitamins. Their dietary requirements include sources of calcium and Vitamin A. They eat a variety of sprouts, seeds, nuts, fruits, vegetables, commercial pellets, as well as the same nutritional foods humans eat. A cuttle bone or a calcium block is a good source of calcium.Our African Grey Congo is a gentle parrot, tamed easily, and they are very sociable. Because of their social nature and their intelligence, their humans become quite devoted to these feathered creatures. Greys in turn love their humans and also get along quite well with other birds in the home. However, they can sometimes become a “one person” bird, often bonding with a person of the opposite sex.Besides talking, African Greys can and will make all the sounds they hear in the home. They can mimic all the other birds and pets, and of course, they can use any voice that they hear in the house as well.  They can begin to mimic even before they are weaned, but not usually in clear sounds for some time. Congo African Greys don’t really start speaking until they are around 2 – 3 years old. As you interact with them, they will talk and associate words with meanings. Many Greys become quite articulate with a large vocabulary, but vocal ability and the inclination to talk may range widely among individual birds. Although they can talk and mimic, they are neither overly noisy nor tend to engage in loud shrieking calls like some of the other vocal parrots.
