I spent 6 months looking for an african grey that needed a good home and didnt cost the earth as I have 3 children and money is always an issue.

I found an 18 month old timneh with a cage in a local paper and was reluctant to buy because I thought it was an inferior bird, could I of been more wrong, this bird is bright as a button sings and talks non stop, snuggles into my chest at nite and literally purrs like a cat...

I have freinds with congos that talk very well but cant be handled, not to say they are all like that, but if you have any doubt about the timneh being a lesser bird totally dismiss that idea from your head.

Totally lovely bird i would highly recommend to anyone, equal to the congo if not better in my opinion...

We have had our Timneh, Mya, for about a month and she is a sweetheart. She is around 7 months old and is already chattering and whistling up a storm. She is accepting of the whole family and we would recommend the Timneh. I had to do some talking to get my husband to buy a Timneh over a Congo but he definately has no regrets now. These birds are awesome!

I have an 8 month old Timneh named Kyzer. I got him when he was 8 weeks old. He is very much a part of the family now. He is like having a clown in the house! We enjoy him so much! He does demand alot of time and attention, but he is well worth it! He whistles quite often, but has only said "hello" so far. He seems rather intelligent and we cannot wait to see his growth from day to day!
