that this germinated seed is much better for the greys as it reduces the fat content especially in the sunflower seed and increases the vitamin within the seed. My birds also receive on a daily basis egg food which I make myself. I was talking to a canary breeder recently and when I told him that I hard boil my eggs for 6 minutes he informed me that I should be boiling them for 11 minutes to ensure that if there is any salmonella in the egg the longer time will kill it, hence an instant change to the recipe!! Grey parrots do not have a very loud call certainly not compared to Amazons in fact they have a very pleasant call and with often a few human words included. Their tendency to spend long periods in the nest box means that often you cannot see them so from a display angle they are possibly not the best if you like to constantly see your feathered friends. However they do make a welcome addition to any collection.
