Thank you for posting this article, Cher. While hand-raised African Grey Parrots can make wonderful companions (as a matter of fact, one owns me), those that are trapped in the wild never make a good adaptation to captivity. They are so bright, as well, that they can develop all kinds of psychological problems if trapped and then kept in captivity. Born in the wild - belong in the wild.
