Hi, there! I'm a retired clinical psychologist teaching college psych part time to keep body and soul together. My little buddy here is Riley, and she has office space in my study so she can 'help' me teach. (Sometimes she really does help.)

She especially enjoys Teams meeting with students, especially if they are men. I tell her she is a shameless hussy. And she likes to whistle when I'm recording.

And I should have said she's 25 years old. We got her right before her 10th birthday.

:welcomesign: and enjoy the site ...I would get her a bigger cage with more toys and perches they are very smart and if they dont have enough toys ect they will selfhurt by pulling their feathers out ..I keep my grey in a 3.5 x 4 x 5 ft cage and I still think its not big enough ... It looks like she has already been plucking .. to try and get her to stop requires a bigger cage lots of things to do inside cage and great nutrition ..lots of fresh veggies and fruit with a good pellet and some seeds and nuts ... Best of luck to you both :cool:

Can't wait to hear more stories!
One of my quakers likes to wolf whistle at the fellas!

Even if that's just her office cage, I have to agree with above more space and different diameter perches at least one double the width of what you have . Helps prevent arthritis especially in medium and big parrot's to have one really wide and several of different diameter.
