Grey's Don't Go Cheap

Hello friends, yes it's me again, can you believe it tomorrow I am six months old!!!  Don't I look good for my age?  As you can see I am enjoying life, my flying is really coming on now, and just to annoy Stuart and Janie I always try to land on their heads.  They do so hate me to do that, but I find it so funny, especially when I hang on to the hair really tightly when they try to get me down.  Such a laugh!!!

As you can see Janie has given me my own Piggy Bank to save up my pocket money.  She says that I cost to much and that I will have to start supporting myself.  I tried to explain that, that was what my wings were for, but she was having none of it.

It seems we are very expensive to maintain, besides the cost of buying me, and buying my cage.  There are food costs, vet costs, toy costs and cleaning costs.  Having a Grey or any bird in your home is something you should not undertake lightly it seems.  We are not cheap, but we are lovable (mostly), but anyone considering buying one of my feathered chums, should really think hard before going ahead.  As a wise man once said, 'Polly wants a cracker'.  Not sure what that has to do with things, but it is a very wise saying you must agree.

Anyway, I really must get on with trying to work out how this Piggy Bank thing works, I am sure there is a nut in there if only I could work out how to get to it. Polly might want a cracker, but Darwin's prefer nuts!!!

Looks like it is time to clean up to earn your money. Maybe try to brush their hair for them, tee he he or puffing up the run with your feet between vaccuming!

Hi Darwin.
Can you lend me some of your nuts out of your nuttybank ?

Sandy, I just give them that look, and they will do anything for me. Honestly they are putty in my beak.

Aunty Carol, my nuts and mine and so are yours, all nuts belong to Darwin.

Nibbles to your both,
