  1. I love Tui!! We may get an African Grey soon but I know no parrot will ever top how funny and cool Tui was. I think it’s hilarious how she knew squealing was bad but she seemed to have fun teasing/spiting you about it, that’s like what younger siblings do 🙂

  2. Wooww such an amazing bird. I love her. “Be quiet.. Can I get a kiss.. C’mon! MMMMuua” Outstanding..

  3. “Wanna squeal?”
    “No, you don’t want to squeal.”
    “Ohh shit. I’ll kick your ass!!”

    She was such a naughty bird hehehehe :))

  4. I could listen to these amazing birds all day. I turn the tv sound off because my grey is much more interesting than what’s on!

  5. I am having some trouble trying to get my african grey to speak shes 1 year 5 months very beautiful bird she is, she can only say hello and she is around people all day long anybody have tips for me to get her to start speaking?

  6. been watching your vids and think there great i cant wait to collect my bird saturday

  7. I am so happy I found this video again – I missed watching it. What a truly amazing bird!!!

  8. Dude?! You got a new bird yet? Update us…i watch your videos and preciate them…i feel sorry for you…update us..love

  9. hahaha what a troll, squeals and then tells himself to be quiet to keep out of the cage lol

  10. i laughed throughthe whole thing! she’s so smart! i want a birdthat can talk….. two thumbs up!!

  11. Wow, I love this grey…… How old is she ??? I’ll be there soon, do you understand hahhaha

  12. You are doing a great job with this bird. I really enjoy these videos. What an intelligence creature.

  13. “I am just looking out for tornadoes”………”SHIT SHIT”.

  14. I think the tornado you’re referring to is the one that hit Greensburg KS and IIRC, it was EF5 and struck the city at night, wiping out 95% of the city.

  15. Everyone that knows Tui’s vocalizations, please look up on here “amazing parrot english accent” and there is another person that posts on here, that has a bird named “kiwi” that I think is actually Tui!!! She growls and says “are you work”…what do you think?!

  16. You can toilet train your bird by taking it out of the cage first thing in the morning and holding it over the toilet. Encouraging it and rewarding it when it dumps in the toilet help with the training. Two reasons for this–birds don’t like to crap where they sleep and it is natural for them to take a big dump first thing in the morning. Problem is that you need to be with the bird all the time to watch it so you can take it to the toilet when you think it is about to dump.

  17. i love this bird and his companion!!! i watch one of his videos every day one of my fav on you tube i am sure, but i think this is the bird that got away, i am not sure would love to know ??? wonder why else he hasn’t made any new vid ??

  22. I absolutley adore Tui. Im planning on getting my own african grey for company when I leave the nest mid next year so im doing all my research on them now. Did you have Tui’s wings clipped or is she a fully flighted bird? I just wondered because i heard that wing clipping causes behavioural problems which no bird owner wants. Thankyou for such lovely videos of your bird. Jess x

  23. I’m getting one of these birds, and take all your training tips exept for the squeal one.

  24. this parrot went missing 2 years ago
    owner,please post info of EXACT last known whereabouts.
    someone may have found her,taken her in,and had no idea how to contact you

  25. When Tui was not ‘being nice’ was that a mistake you would consider now that we’ve seen the video with all your tips? Such as ‘the bird will give you a warning’. Would you say Tui was giving you a warning there? Though she didn’t seem to mind when you started poking her a few seconds later.

  26. I love the squeal followed by the innocent “What?”
