The African grey parrots generally inhabit savannas, coastal mangroves, woodland and edges of forest clearings in their West and Central Africa range.
Though the larger of the African grey subspecies is referred to as the Congo African grey, this bird actually has a much wider natural range in Africa, including the southeastern Ivory Coast, Kenya, and Tanzania.
The Timneh African grey is found in a smaller region along the western edge of the Ivory Coast and through southern Guinea.
Their diet in the wild consists mostly of palm nuts, seeds, fruits, and leafy matter.
Care & Feeding
There’s a reason why the African grey is often considered the poster bird for parrot intelligence , Not only is this bird inclined to amass a large vocabulary, African greys also demonstrate an aptitude for recognizing the meaning of words and phrases.
The African greys need plenty of toys that challenge their intelligence, such as foraging and puzzle toys.
Nutri Berries by Lafeber Company are perfect for foraging.
This complete food blends a balance of grains, seeds, and other nutrients in the shape of a berry.
Because the grains and seeds are mostly whole and formed into a berry shape, it encourages African greys to hold, nibble, and even play with the Nutri-Berries.
This mimics the foraging that African greys do in the wild.
The African greys seem especially affected by stress and commotion in their environment and can be put more at ease by placing one corner of the cage against a wall as opposed to in the middle of a room.
The African grey parrots are more prone to deficiency in vitamin-A/beta-carotene, and therefore benefit from eating vegetables high in beta-carotene, such as cooked sweet potato and fresh kale.
Vitamin-D deficiency is another concern, especially for greys on a poor diet.
Offering a balanced, pelleted diet, such as Nutri-Berries, for the main diet of an African grey helps prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
A grey that consumes a pelleted diet generally does not need vitamin supplements added to its food.
