Strolling the yard
I have an African Grey, Ms. Bailey. As you all probably know finding her a cage-mate is an extremely difficult task since Greys are so hard to come by. I can’t even find a breeder that has any on hand right now. Anywho, Ms. Bailey’s feathers seem a bit scraggly and with her being an older bird, she probably has some difficulty preening herself. How do birds normally preen each other? Can I preen her with my fingers or do I need a special, grooming tool? Basically, what are some ways I can groom and pamper her other than providing her a bath and a daily spray-bottle? I want to be sure she has everything she needs even if it will be a long time before I can get her a cage-mate.
