African Grey Parrot Home with Shira

African Grey Parrot Home with Shira

Over the years, we have discussed dogs, horses, and even the cats who ignore us on this website. Now we have the opportunity to talk about the African Grey Parrot.

This Article was repaired or refurbished on March 1, 2020. It was originally posted on July 24, 2019 Check the site archive.today for verification of pocbooks.com online presence.

This article came about via conversation with Shira, an animal lover. Notice what she shares with us in the sub-heading, A Warm Temperament Needed
The African Grey Parrot

These birds are intelligent with a distinct red tail. They can learn a vocabulary of over 1,500 words. You never have to carry on a conversation with yourself again. An interesting point is the price cost for the African Grey; which ranges from the mid hundreds in US currency to thousands of dollars. Take a look at the photos below of this beautiful bird.
Shira’s Family Member

Shira is one human that loves animals. She takes great care in knowing how to treat the animals in her care. With that being said, she also has a Great Dane in the family in addition to Bella (African Grey). How do her children get along you might wonder?

Gratefully, we have Shira to tell us about this family arrangement with insightful notes to keep in mind when you are looking to develop a friendship with these birds.

A Warm Temperament Needed

Shira tells us the following experience with the bird’s temperament.

Bella is very calm.. when she is in her cage, it’s her home and does NOT want to be bothered. We let her come to us. She will warn you by making a quick scratch with her foot to her face and a squeak. Bella does bite if you push to hold her. Enough to draw blood; but as a warning, she does not like what you are trying to do. She will come out on her own time. When Bella flies she lands on the floor and explores.

She loves the vacuum cleaner and hanging upside down from the door frame. If you are sitting on the floor and doing something, she will come out to see what you’re doing. Very curious; while always watching and listening to everyone and everything around her. She loves drinking out of coffee cups and mimics like sounds that are often made in the house.

She says things in a man’s voice as well as women’s voice. Bella will mimic your voice if your around enough. Lots of sounds Including a super loud alarm clock beeping. 6 am, every morning. lol. Bird chirps (mimics my little kiwi, a female lovebird.)A microwave beeping and many more noises and sounds.

Her previous owner was an elderly women who she adored. Bigger parrots are generally a one person, one gender owner. She took to me so when she is out and about exploring, she will step up on my arm with no complaints.
The (Bella) African Grey Parrot Diet

As for what I feed her? There is a special blend of parrot food that is brightly colored and almost reminds me of Trix cereal. Her all time favorite, although, is sunflower seeds

Shira, what are your insights for anyone looking to purchase or adopt one of these magnificent birds of creation?

If someone is looking to adopt a beautiful exotic large parrot, I recommend mainly patience. The best way I can describe bringing one into your family is they are like abused animals. When you adopt an animal that has been abused, they are frightened, skittish, and on edge. The more you have patience and show them love; the more they will come around. Same as parrots. Let them come to you. Take the time to feed and love them; talk to them… like you would a dog that has been abused… they are extremely smart. I’ve also raised macaws and small birds and parrots.
Thank You Shira and Bella

The Product of Culture website gives a heartfelt thanks to Bella, who this time desired Shira to do all the talking in this interview. Have you come to the conclusion that it is a wonderful thing they have found one another? Once again, thank you Shira for all these tips on how to take care of the African Grey Parrot.

Horses Like Dale have Personalities

Parts of this article were originally posted in the Year 2013 as “Dale – A Powerful Yet Gentle Horse.”
This year, with a few edits here and there, it is a pleasure to spruce up the article’s sweater! Lauren Thank you so much for the interview!

This Article was repaired or refurbished on Feb 20, 2020 . It was originally posted on May 28, 2018 Check the site archive.today for verification of pocbooks.com online presence.

Throughout history, horses have worked with men and women to accomplish tasks. Depending on the owner’s preferences, horses have been used from “beast of burden” to royal chariot carriers. Sadly, at times, they have been used as weapons of war. People have different views on how intelligent these animals are. Some say they are temperamental. Still, horses are fast learners when they have owners who are correctly teaching them and consistent in their methods. The way a horse is talked to and treated has a significant bearing on its ability to learn. A horse associates tone with commands. It is not only what the trainer says, but how he or she says it. So in another way of saying it, horses emotionally associate different commands in positive and negative ways.

Listen to Lauren, horse owner, share her equestrian experience with (Glebedale) Dale. Her experience with training and jumping horses gives helpful advice on the treatment of these creatures and how they are reciprocal animals.

What is Dale’s personality like?

Lauren says: Dale is quite a nervous horse when you work with him in the stable. He doesn’t like his face being touched and things like that, but he is the gentlest of horses, especially when you are riding him. He is such a gentleman and will do anything for you.

Question Lauren we have heard people use similar expressions, “the gentlest of horses” before when they are riding a horse. Give us more of how Dale’s temperament is when he is not in riding or competition mode.

Lauren says: He is so friendly as well and follows me around the stable or the yard and leans his head on me as if he is giving me cuddles. When I am upset, he always seems even more comforting as if he knows I am sad. He is just like a best friend as he seems to listen to everything I say.

Question Lauren What do you feed Dale and how much?

Lauren shares: Their ideal weight depends on the breed of the horse really, you can tell by looking at them if they are overweight or underweight. Horses are always out in the fields grazing but when we bring them in we give them a big feed, and in the winter they also get hay out in the field.

Thank you, Lauren, for sharing your equestrian experience with us. It shows why horses have been used throughout history to help men and women in farming and transportation. By listening to people like Lauren, we find out horses are not just instinctual but they have feelings that endears them to you.
