For this instalment of Meet My Parrot we’re meeting Peggy the African Grey and her owner Chris Gibson.
Tell us about your Parrot
I have 4 African Grey but I want to tell you about Peggy. Peggy is a rescue she’s at least 51 but what makes her extra special is that she only has one foot, a deformed wing and toe on her good foot and cataracts but she has the heart of a lion.
Why did you choose an African Grey?
I have always loved African Greys
What is Peggy’s favourite food?
Does she have any games she likes to play?
She will play for hours throwing her ball about
Does she speak?
Yes - she loves to say WHAT really loudly when she’s doing something she shouldn’t be and if she’s scared she says it’s alright Peggy - she can also whistle the A-Team tune as well as loads of other things
Do you have advice for new Parrot owners?
Think very carefully- these beautiful creatures are a lifelong commitment.
