We've put together a simple 'Take Me Home' checklist for new Parrot keepers. If you have any questions, or need any further advise, please drop in to your local Petmania and talk to our Petcare Advisors.

  • Extra large cage with a top opening (as big as possible-most cages will come with food and water bowls)

  • Good qaulity Parrot food

  • Plenty of toys made from wood. Greys are destructive and need toys to keep them occupied and their beaks trim. Toys will need to be changed often and moved around the cage to provide entertainment for the bird.

  • Suitable substrate like sand or sand sheets

  • Mister bottle, this helps to reduce dust in their plumage

  • A book on African Greys- should probably be purchased beforehand as this bird is a lot of work and high maintenance.

  • Heavy duty gloves, these are optional for training

  • Greys should get a variety of fresh fruit and veg and also some egg once in a while. It is not enough to just give them seeds as they need a balanced diet.
