Say hello to Coco the African Grey.
For this instalment of Meet My Parrot we’re meeting Coco the African Grey and her owners Maggie and David Ikin.
I am Miss Coco an African Grey and I was born on December 29th 2015.
Maggie and Dave are my owners, or so they think….they are my slaves!
I think they chose me because I wouldn’t grow too big, but I’m definitely the boss.
What is Coco’s favourite food?
My favourite food has to be pomegranates, I absolutely love them.
I like grapes, oranges, papaya, cherries, apples too.
I also like carrots, sweetcorn, peas in a pod and my safe nuts (walnuts, almonds etc).
I also love NutriBerries and AviCakes.
Does Coco have any favourite toys?
My favourite toy has to be anything with cardboard.
Does Coco talk?
I don’t talk but I have been taught to whistle tunes….
The Adams Family, Yellow Submarine, Eastenders theme tune…..Christmas I whistle Jingle Bells and Rudolph.
Does Coco have any favourite games?
My favourite game is flying upstairs to see my Dad when he’s working from home, so I can try to wreck his computer!
Do you have advice for new Parrot owners?
My Mummy would tell anyone thinking of getting a Parrot to do plenty of research beforehand.
Plus find a good avian vet! A yearly health check is a must!
Oh, toys, I must have plenty of toys!
