Although not a true bird fancier (most likely due to my first experiences as a child with a variety of parakeets) I saw Mrs Gray and had to have her. A true beauty and smart and vocal. Be prepared for a variety of sounds and words (so be careful what you say. lol.) I remember once hearing a faucet dripping and going crazy trying to find the source. Turned out to be Mrs Gray. I've heard stories about other grays mimicking microwaves, alarm clocks, and a variety of household noises. She demanded attention and spent a great deal of time outside her LARGE cage. She ate a variety of seeds and some fruit and rather disgustingly found she had a taste for garden snails. yeck. As smart and vocal as she was, like most birds, they are a mess (meaning no potty training). Be sure to provide lots of attention and toys or you may find your house torn apart if you let them roam free. I would wholeheartedly recommend this loving, intelligent and vocal bird to almost anyone thinking of a parrot or bird. Just remember they live for a long, long time if cared for properly.
