oooh how exciting - show us a pic? :thumbsup:

My mum's got a cockatiel(spelling?)

It makes all these shrieking noises so I told her to call it 'Screech', like that guy in saved by the bell lol.

Great name for a bird

How about Nelson or Mandela seeing as he is African and grey x x

Barry

Pepper?

Percy ! Personally always loved that name for a pet :w00t:

my grey is called charlie.

had him from a baby and he was handled by both. At the moment, he loves no one lol. He is nice to me sometimes, and nice to the wife others. most of the time if you go up to him he bites a chunk out of your hand lol. but the talking is very funny. they are very intelligent creatures.

just love them as much as you can, you wont regret it in the future.

Dave!:thumbsup:

I took this photo this morning. Dunno if there are more than one of them (only ever seen one at a time!) but its been a frequent visitor to out garden! (Sorry about the quality - but to much of a rush job before it flew off!) Dunno what sort of parrot it is (apart from the fact its quite big and green!)
