    Do African Greys have fleas?

    Hi PPL.

    I would like some information. I have found 2 fleas in my home and am wondering whether my parrot has fleas!

    Do African Greys have fleas?

    It won't get fleas or ticks but it can get mites. The fleas you found came from a different source or area.

    Hello,
    I agree with Dave birds dont carry fleas. Mites are also kind of a rare find unless they are around alot of foul.
