African Grey Parrot Lifespan
Grey parrots might live for 40–60 years in captivity, though their mean life within the wild seems to be shorter at concerning twenty-three years.
African Grey parrot diet / Care & Feeding
The diet of the African grey parrot consists of the fruits, seeds, nuts, and berries of several native rainforest species, including the flesh of oil-palm trees. Fresh fruit could be a sensible supply of nutrition for them further. Nuts like walnuts, almonds, and pecans may be used as a coaching treat and square measure terribly healthy for them.
Our Grey parrot is weaned onto a pelleted diet, various trail mix blends, fresh fruits and vegetables, cooked beans and rice, grains, bread, pasta, and nuts.
Did you know?
Greys are extremely social and will form a communal nesting area of several hundred. They have been observed roosting in tall palms in groups ranging from several hundred to thousands of birds.
African greys have a powder produced by feather on their flanks that helps to clean and protect their feathers. This powder also makes their feathers waterproof, a necessary adaptation for surviving in a tropical climate.
African greys can commonly be seen in the wild on the ground at waterholes where they ingest mud and minerals. This is thought to be an adaptation to compensate for increased pesticide and toxin levels in their food – the soil eaten absorbs the toxins that they would otherwise ingest.
