Product Description


The Timneh African Grey Parrot is the smaller of the African Grey Parrot species at approximately 10 inches (26 cm) in length and weighing approximately 10.5 ounces (300 g). Timneh African Grey Parrots are a dark charcoal gray with a pinkish or horn-colored upper mandible (beak) and a dark maroon colored tail. If you look closely, you will see a beautiful scallop type pattern on the tips of their feathers. The origins of the Timneh African Grey Parrot are concentrated in the western coastal regions of Guinea,Cameroon,Ghana and the Ivory Coast of Africa. Timneh African Grey Parrots begin to talk at approximately 6 months to a year. It is believed that they talk sooner than Congo African Greys because Timneh African Grey Parrots mature quicker. Timneh African Grey Parrots are great talkers and can have an extensive vocabulary of hundreds of words. They mimic many voices and sounds. Unlike the Congo, their voices are not an exact replica of the person’s voice they are copying. Timneh African Grey Parrots have their own special little voice – I like to refer to it as a “munchkin” voice as it is so cute. And yes, they do talk in context! Some people believe the Timneh African Grey Parrot is the calmer and more flexible of the subspecies. Feather plucking does not seem to be an issue with these little guys as it is with CAGs. The Timneh African Grey is more apt to continue playing with their toys and talking when other people besides family are around. Buy Timneh Online now from us and get your new pet.

The Timneh African Grey Parrot has the ability to reproduce any noise it hears in the home. It can sound just like a dog, a spouse, or anyone else that interests him. Some examples are rather funny, like getting you to answer the phone when no one has called. Or getting you to go to the door and open it for your children, and your children have not arrived home from school yet. One Timneh African Grey would love to watch the Ninja Turtles on television. One day some friends came over to visit. Upon entering the door “Billy” stated quite clearly, “drop your drawers, I have a pistol”. Everyone, struck completely dumb, just looked at each other and then went into fits of laughter.

Timnehs have all the good qualities of their popular African Grey Congo counterpart. It has taken a while, but the African Grey Timneh is now getting more recognition. It has established itself as an excellent speaker with the perfect tone quality required by its humans to be understand, and can precisely mimic sounds in its environment.

The African Grey Timneh is equivalent in intelligence and ability to that of its Congo counterpart, yet with unique strengths of its own. Timnehs can learn to speak earlier than Congos and are generally less nervous. In coloring they are a slightly darker gray and have a maroon tail rather than red. They are also bit smaller and less expensive, but makes an equally fine companion. Being a more laid back version of African Grey, some keepers actually prefer this more relaxed parrot to its cousin.

In the wild the African Grey Parrots eats seeds, nuts, fruits, and leafy vegetation. These birds will climb around the tree, rather than flying, picking up food and holding it with a foot while eating. They enjoy eating the outer flesh of the oil-palm nut, and have been observed eating snails. In West Africa, with a fondness for grains, it is said they have become rather bold pests attacking the maize fields.

Foods for your pet bird will include a ready made large hookbill seed mix enriched with vitamins. Their dietary requirements include sources of calcium and Vitamin A. They eat a variety of sprouts, seeds, nuts, fruits, vegetables, commercial pellets, as well as the same nutritional foods humans eat. A cuttle bone or a calcium block is a good source of calcium.

African Greys should not be fed a diet that is high in fat and protein. A lean diet is recommended as recent studies have indicated heart disease and arteriosclerosis occurring in Greys in their late teens and twenties.

  • Fresh vegetables you can offer include mustard greens, green peas, cucumber, young dandelion greens, sweet corn, beet greens, carrots, broccoli, unsprayed lettuce, chickweed, dandelions, eggplant, green peppers, sorrel, spinach leaves, tomatoes and zucchini.
  • Fruits that you can offer include, apples, peaches, apricots, bananas, pears, plums, raisons, and most other fruits.
  • Avocado and chocolate are considered toxic for birds and sugar and salt should be avoided.

Most parrots enjoy and occasional shower or bath. A shower can be accomplished with either a hand held shower sprayer or a hose with a fine spray head and lukewarm water. A bath pan or ceramic dish 12″-14″ (30-35 cm) can be placed on the bottom of the cage or mounted at about 39″ (1m) above the floor in an aviary. You can easily and conveniently buy Timneh Online from us.

The wings of parrots should be kept trim if you want to discourage flight and to prevent the loss of your pet through an open window or door. However you must take care to only trim a few (3-5) feathers because this is a heavy bodied bird, and can be hurt if it falls while taking short flights. The beak and claws need to be trimmed if they are not worn down from climbing and chewing.


The Timneh African Grey is its own bird. It has a different look and a different personality than the Congo. The Timneh is not as “king-like” and demanding as the Congo. But like the Congo the Timneh is a little shy, yet far more outgoing than its counterpart. Timnehs will tolerate more commotion, doors banging and the general noises going on around him. Being a more relaxed parrot than its cousin it is easier to have around.

African Greys have a strong pair bond in the wild and it carries over to captivity. The Timneh will prefer a singular individual, and often someone of the opposite sex. He will tolerate others in the family but stay attached to pretty much just one person. The Timneh can be silly and likes to play and frequently considers its human one big personal toy.

I think one thing that amazes most people about african greys is they can mimic and sound just like a certain voice. I have heard some sound like women and men, some can sound like an old mans voice. Greys are one of the best mimics around. Most greys take some time to develop their talents, some taking a couple years to really get going with their talking.

    As each day goes by, we get more and more attached and pleased with Pearl. She lets all three of us pick her up and carry her around. I am still her favorite though. She is starting to talk and is trying to laugh. She also is trying to mimic one of our dog’s bark. She likes so snuggle in the evening and really enjoys my attempts at karaoke singing. If we are out of the room from her for a few minutes and she knows we are in the house, she will come looking for us. we love this bird and are really enjoying her. When searching parrots for sale online, I think is the most difficult choice to make is to choose the right breeder and I am glad we did choose silver line breeders.
