Red Factor African Grey Parrot,just like all African Greys are amazing, and intelligent parrots. They are considered the smartest of the parrot family, and the best talkers. Due to this, there are certain behaviors that African Greys are prone to if not handled, and trained correctly. Also, if not given enough socialization they will very quickly turn into a “one person” bird which is very hard to break them of.
All Congo African Greys normally live to 65 years, but are now known to live much longer due to better diets, and care that’s now available. Thought, and consideration should go into the purchasing of a companion bird because these are lifetime companions.
