"I was searching the site to learn more about the African Grey Timneh... I have a couple Quesions still... That I did not see posted...1.) What is thier Life Span? 2.) How Many Times a Year and when do They Breed? 3.) How Many Babys Do they Have At one time and how long do they Carry the Babys? 4.)Is it ok to have more than 1 Female and just 1 male all Together around Breeding Season? Would this be the Best Bird to start With Kennels? 5.) What The pricing on them?
Dr. Jungle says: African Greys usually live to the ripe age of about 50 years in captivity. In the wild they live in large flocks, from sometimes flocks of over 200 birds. When sexually mature they choose their mates from the flocks and enter into a lifelong monogamous bond. In captivity they are mature enough for breeding at about five years of age, though it can take much longer than that in nature. Ideally you should pair up your birds at six months of age to obtain compatibility. Nesting is variable in nature, depending upon local. African Greys have been noted to lay eggs anywhere from January to September. In captivity they do not have a specific breeding season. They can lay at any time of year, though the environment needs to be favorable, such things as the season weather and plenty of food available. African Greys do not 'carry' babies. They are egg layers, depositing their eggs in nests and brooding them until they hatch. They can lay between 3 to 5 eggs which incubate for 30 days. They then need to be continually fed until they are about 10 to 12 weeks old. Their beaks, however, will not be completely strong (hard) until about 4 to 5 months. At that time they can begin to eat fruits and nuts. They will be almost fully fledged (feathered) at about 10 weeks. African Grey babies can sell from about $600 and up. There are many good books to give you the indepth information you are looking for on breeding African Greys. You can find a number of books on our Animal World References - Pet Birds - Exotic Birds A good one to start with is African Gray Parrots: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual.
