    Hey.Single African grey free to any good home

    hey,
    my African grey is talent to mimic is not restricted to human speech; they readily and skillfully imitate many other "human" sounds like microwaves, doorbells, telephones, coffee grinders and percolators, computer modems and water faucets, to name just a few.My Grey is prized as pets because of her ability to learn to speak like humans. she is very vocal in the wild, communicating with a large repertoire of shrill whistles, squawks, and screams, while flying or perching. she often mimic other birds and mammals. This is evident in many pet parrots, as they imitate cats, chickens, owls and other domestic and wild animals.
    You can just get back to me with an email at (deleted by admin) thanks and waiting.

    Hey.Single African grey free to any good home

    Hello Cobimoore,

    Why do you want to give your Grey away? This is very unusual, but there are some here that may live in your area that would be glad to take in an unwanted Grey.

    Please give a little more detail on this. It almost sounds like an Ad from Cameroon rip-off artists at this point.....Thanks.
    Within all of us is a varying amount of space lint and star dust, the residue from our creation. Most are too busy to notice it, and it is stronger in some than others. It is strongest in those of us who fly and is responsible for an unconscious, subtle desire to slip into some wings and try for the elusive boundaries of our origin. ~K.O.

    I'm worried about the bird as I'm sure you all are. This "ad" looks like some cut and paste job taken from a description of AG's and the words "my" added.

    You noticed that too huh, she was on the IM last night and one of the members helped her put it on craigslist, she said it was her daughter's bird and her daughter had been hit by a vehicle and was unable to care for it. You just never know, the scammers are out there in full force.hmy:

    It's funny how we all got the same vibe. The first thing I thought of when I read it was "Nigerian check scam."
