  4. Social Creatures: Parrots are highly social animals that thrive on interaction. They bond closely with their owners and can become emotionally attached. Regular socialization and mental stimulation are crucial for their well-being.
  5. Diet: A balanced diet is essential for the health of these parrots. They need a variety of foods, including high-quality pellets, fresh fruits, vegetables, and occasional nuts or seeds. Calcium supplements are also recommended for species like Cockatoos, which have higher calcium requirements.
  6. Enrichment: Parrots are intelligent and active birds that require mental stimulation. Providing toys, puzzles, and opportunities for foraging can help prevent boredom and behavioral issues.
  7. Grooming: Regular grooming is important for these birds, especially Cockatoos, which produce a powdery down to keep their feathers healthy. They may require occasional baths or showers to maintain their plumage.
  8. Noise Level: All three species can be noisy, especially during morning and evening hours. African Greys are known for their ability to mimic household sounds and even alarm clocks. Amazons and Cockatoos can also be loud vocalizers.

  10. Training and Socialization: Parrots are highly trainable, especially when positive reinforcement methods are used. They can learn tricks, and behaviors, and even develop strong bonds with their human companions. However, early socialization and consistent training are key to preventing behavioral issues.
