    PLEASE CONTACT KIM:
    [email protected] Lucy is a 19 year old African
    Grey Parrot who was taken
    from her third neglectful
    home. Lucy has flourished so
    much with her wonderful
    foster Kim who is extremely Parrot savvy and has taken
    Lucy to the best Avian Vet in
    NJ. Lucy has a clean bill of
    health and is ready for her
    new home; she is a sweet
    girl and has a large vocabulary of words and
    sounds. She really loves
    human attention and
    affection. Lucy has plucked
    her neck and chest feathers
    out due to depression, sadness and neglect from
    being left alone for over a
    year and a half in a vacant
    home. her family moved N
    did'nt her along. Lucy was
    left at the family's old house, which has not sold as of yet,
    only to be visited once a
    week by a family member
    who brought food and
    water. Do you have room in
    your heart for this WONDERFUL girl?
    Serious inquires only Please!!

    I live in NJ and there's an older retired couple that my boyfriend and myself are friends with. They probably have 6 parrots at this point and never had children, so they treat the parrots like kids. I can ask them if they are interested - although the Grey would certainly outlive most. [​IMG]

    Do we know if the parrot has any male/female preferences? It likely has biting issues?

    They have a very large cockatoo with a pink head that almost took my finger off, but he gives them kisses! [​IMG]

    Actually, I can think of another older gentleman who already has an african grey who may also be interested. I'll make some calls tomorrow.

    Edited to add - I'll email your contact and ask more questions. [​IMG]

    My friend used to have an African Grey who would do flips off her roost when she was playing. One day she fell and hit her head, and died. My friend was devastated.... I'll see if maybe she'll adopt this one.
