- Real Name
Brought my first Congo African Grey home today. He was upset when I picked him up so we loosely toweled and cuddled him for the two hour ride home. We returned him to his carrier for the walk into the house which angered him. Had to put his carrier into his cage to extract him. After a couple hours to "cool off" he's preening, shaking his tail feathers, seems to understand "step up" and is starting to step up when offered a hand. I think he's good with his CAG +1 flock. Off to a great start although not sure how his first night alone in his new cage is going to work out. I've read a number of the postings on this forum and want to ThanK those who shared their experiences. BTW his name is C4 and hatched Oct 2023.
