On October 25, 2003, Geebee found a new home! We knew that we couldn't bring Geebee and Rufus with us when we move to Washington, so we have been hunting around for a good home for them. Finally we found a friend of a friend of a friend who said she would be interested. She came over and we chatted for a while as she and Geebee looked each over. Convinced that she was enthused and dedicated, I loaded up Geebee in her car and off they went. After having Geebee for over 10 years, it was hard to say goodbye, but I know that she (he?) is in a good home now and will probably receive more attention than was given around here.
As one of the best-known and most talented of the parrots kept as pets, the African Gray has been bred in ever-increasing numbers during recent years. If you are seeking a pet bird this means that a good choice of hand-raised birds is usually available. The African Gray Parrot should develop into a superb companion for you, although it may take six months after you acquire it before it starts talking.
Characteristics: Length: 32.5cm (13 in.) Average Lifespan: 50 years Sexing: Scientific sexing required. Breeding Details: incubation lasts 29 days; fledging occurs 90 days later. Young Birds: Irises are dark.
