Toby (Congo African Grey) - 1560313

Name: Toby

Species: Congo African Grey

Reference No: 1560313

Summary: Hello! My name is Toby, a sweet 23 year-old Congo African Grey.

Don't be fooled by my name. I'm actually a lovely lady! African Greys are often picky about who they'll go to and are often one-person birds, but I'm here to disprove all that. I'm happy to go to anyone and I've never shown any aggression. I also talk loads. I can recite Jack and Jill; make household and phone noises; and (I'm a bit ashamed of this) even say a naughty word. Just one, though. Maybe if you ignore it and don't react I might forget all about that one. I used to be harness trained, but I haven't worn one for quite a while now, so I'd love to try again when the warmer weather arrives. Then I can come out with you for walks in the country. So much fun. I don't like to step up if I'm inside my cage, but if you open the door, I'll come out and then I'm happy to step onto a hand. I also like to potter around the floor where I'm happy for anyone to pick me up. Don't leave me unattended because I might just chew your carpets or skirting boards! I'm happy to have tickles, but I'm not a really cuddly bird for the most part. I come with my own cage and I'm just a real sweetie pie! Do you think you might be the right forever home for me? Please put in an application. You won't be sorry!

Comes with cage? Yes

Location: Somerset

Note: This bird is in the latter stages of the rehoming process and a potential forever home may have been found. Please do not apply for this bird unless the red writing is removed. Thank you.
