The African Grey can acquire a larger vocabulary than most other parrot varietiesabut with or without speech, it's a favorite companion among bird lovers. Here is detailed advice on nutritious feeding, caging, grooming, disease prevention, and much more. Titles in Barron's popular Pet Handbooks series instruct pet owners on health care, feeding and housing, and other facts important to owners and their pets.

“This book is a practical guide to living with African grey parrots with an emphasis on maintaining companion behavior. It is compiled from notes spanning over 30 years of combined experience with greys.
Where scientific research has been available to document these observations, we have tried to cite that research. However, it is unlikely that cussing here will ever be studied in a laboratory. We have relied, instead, on practical, hands-on experience
with the birds.
Grey parrots are different. These intelligent birds can be more sensitive than most other common companion parrots. You may see techniques, observations, and strategies here that differ somewhat from those used in behavioral therapy for other types of parrots.
No space in this manuscript has been given over to demeaning the theories or techniques of others. Rather, we have used all available space to describe successful techniques and strategies from the collective experience of the authors. We know that much of what is written here must be considered "new territory," as we will be discussing and describing things in this text that may not have been previously discussed in print. Since we have often described concepts here that have not been commonly studied, we expect that this text will be frequently updated, adjusted, or corrected as new information becomes available.”
