Hi, my name is Greta and I`m a 17 year old Timneh African Grey parrot. My owner couldn`t take care of me anymore so now I`m in a nice Mickaboo foster home. Stay tuned for more updates as I settle in.

Note: Greta has a crossed beak aka scissor beak. This is a condition where the upper and lower parts of the beak do not align properly causing the beak to overgrow in a curved manner. Greta has been seen by one of Mickaboo`s avian vets and the beak has been trimmed to a normal size. It will, however, continue to overgrow. Greta will need to be seen by an avian vet to have her beak trimmed once or twice a year for the rest of her life. This is absolutely necessary so she can eat and preen normally.
