  1. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh they are so cute <3 <3

  2. Yes that is true, but if there were no breeders of captive birds for pets at all, those seeking to have them as pets would have to get theirs from people who trap wild onestrong s. But by allowing people to purchase birds born and raised by breeders as pets, the demand for wild-caught birds goes down in the West. Besides, most parrots in the West nowadays are kept in cages that they treat as homes, not prisons. If anything, a good parrot owner is owned by their parrot.

  3. Well that’s your opinion. I honestly think that large birds like that belong in their natural habitat. It doesn’t matter if they don’t have a long life expectancy in the wild, they can also reproduce. If they can reproduce, then they wont die off, and go extinct. Even licensed breeders can get in trouble if they’re mistreating the birds you know.

  4. Wild ones should be kept wild, yes. But a parrot born and raised in captivity by a licensed and expert breeder is actually going to have a happier, healthier and much longer life than a wild bird, provided it has good owners. And if you want to give your pet bird an experience as close to a wild one as it can get, you can train it to return to you when it flies around outside. A bird born and raised as a pet would not last long if put back in the wild.

  5. Birds like this are to large to be in captivity, and even still, you need a pretty descent sized cage which will cost people lots. These birds I think belong here, not in cages.

  6. Do African Greys Like Communicate to each other and is anyone selling A African Grey Parrot??

  7. Will someone just send me a CD of their vocalizations? I could listen to this for hours upon hours.

  8. awwwww I love that bird. by the way, thats about $40,000 in that little group right there lol

  9. President Paul Biya of Cameroon must stop his illegall logging of the Cameroon rain forest. This birds need their natural habitat to survive.

  10. They are soo CUTE!!! do you know if congo and timneh african greys get along and if they can breed?

  11. Nice video. I would like to own one but it’s actually much better and easier to adopt one, especially when cared for in this sort of enviroment

  12. I just noticed too, that most of them have their wings drooped, that is a sign of submission, also like dogs. But since dogs don’t have wings, their just droop their tails.

  13. That’s so cool! xD
    Thanks for sharing such cool videos with us. 🙂

  14. Just AMAZING to see them like that! THANKS for sharing!!! :>)
