Early Max pictures
Here are some early pictures of Max. Look at her black eyes! When I look at how empty her cage was, I just cringe. We don't have a lot of digital pictures of her early years, but she looks pretty much the same now as she did then (with the exception of the eyes!)
Parrots need tons of toys, and different types of toys -- destructible, preening, knots, puzzle, foraging, etc. Max has tons of toys all over the inside and outside of her cage now. Greys have a tendency to get used to routine and to become afraid of new things, including toys. In fact, Max used to be afraid of new toys herself! But we kept working on her, and now she flies to us to inspect all of the new toys that we bring into the house!
