Oh my goodness, I started checking for the prices on African Grey and they vary according to where they came from. The Cameroon is the most expensive at $950 down to Red Bellie at $350. Dang! African Grey is expensive.
African Greys are not only the best of talking birds but also very highly intelligent. Their ability is to mimic the human voice as well as the sounds in their environment. Though African Grey is expensive as a pet, it is well worth it knowing that their longevity is about 50 to 60 years according to the World Parrot Trust.
African Grey parrots are excellent pets because they are intelligent. They require time and commitment by their owners to provide interaction and constant attention. As you can see in the photo above, the bird has toys so he won't get bored.
If you can afford it, get yourself an African Grey parrot and make sure you have the time to teach him the cool tricks and vocabulary.
