subsetzero: I've had a Congo African Grey for sixteen years so I'm getting a kick out of these replies. Our Gandalf says dozens of phrases and uses them in contextually correct situations. She laughs, chuckles, snorts, giggles, farts, kisses, barks, meows, clucks like a chicken and beeps like the microwave. She says "bye bye go to work" when I leave in the morning and says "Hi Mom" to my wife but never to me. Without a doubt she'll out live me. For that reason alone we never ever taught her stuff that would make her un-adoptable.That British slag should rot in hell for what she did to that bird.
Satanic_Hamster: For the life of me, I don't understand why you would do that to an animal.
Cagey B: I was really, really hoping this story was about a dog.
impaler: Lando Lincoln: That PBS show about parrots and all of the owners that abandon them was pretty depressing.Don't get a parrot, people. Just don't.Yep.They're social, smart, and live forever.Even if you take good care of it, it's cruel.
