### Native Range
The Grey Parrot, also known as the African Grey Parrot, is native to the rainforests of West and Central Africa. Their range extends from Côte d’Ivoire to western Kenya, and down to northern Angola. They are particularly abundant in countries like Cameroon, Ghana, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

### Size
Grey Parrots are medium-sized birds. They typically measure around 12 to 14 inches (30 to 36 cm) in length from beak to tail and weigh between 400 to 600 grams (0.88 to 1.32 pounds).

### Life Span
In the wild, Grey Parrots can live up to 40 years, though their lifespan is often shorter due to predation and environmental threats. In captivity, with proper care, they can live up to 60 years or more, making them a long-term commitment for pet owners.

### Diet
In the wild, Grey Parrots have a varied diet that includes:
– Fruits
– Nuts
– Seeds
– Berries
– Vegetation (like leaves and bark)
– Occasionally insects and snails

In captivity, their diet should be carefully managed to include:
– High-quality pellet food specifically designed for parrots
– Fresh fruits and vegetables (e.g., apples, carrots, leafy greens)
– Nuts and seeds in moderation (due to high fat content)
– Occasional protein sources like cooked eggs or beans

### Breeding Details
*Breeding Season:* In the wild, the breeding season varies by region but generally occurs during the dry season when food is abundant.

*Nesting:* Grey Parrots typically nest in tree cavities. They do not create these cavities themselves but instead use natural hollows or those created by other animals.

*Eggs:* A typical clutch consists of 2 to 5 eggs.
Incubation Period: The female incubates the eggs for about 28 to 30 days.

*Fledging:* Chicks are usually ready to fledge (leave the nest) about 10 to 12 weeks after hatching. During this time, both parents feed and care for the young.

Sexual Maturity: Grey Parrots reach sexual maturity at about 3 to 5 years of age.
