SHES ALWAYS PLUCKING?! NOT GOOD!!... alright... calming down... well anyway get her some colorful toys and take her out and let her fly around in your room. Plucking is NOT good. Its bad for the bird and it makes it ugly.

She needs a large variety of toys to keep her mind stimulated. Greys are very intelligent birds so toys such as mazes and drawers work good for them. Foraging toys are a wonderful thing! She should also be seen by an Avian Vet, because plucking could mean there is a health problem. How big is your Grey’s cage?
Here are some examples of foraging toys.

 African grey

she has two enclosures, one is up stairs and the other is down stairs. the bigger one is 3 feet in height , a litte under 2 feet in width and a little uner 3 feet in length. an her other one is smaller but it has a little more height. i try to make her toys but the only thing she really likes is destroying boxes and even she gets bored doing that after a while. im trying to make toys she will like but that hasnt worked so far

I used to hang phone books in the cage for the african greys to shred and that usually kept them pretty busy.

 African grey

The African Grey Parrot is the ideal mix of heads and is we believe one of the most amazing wildlife of them all. These kinds of parrot has become easily recognized as the best discussing parrot of the lot, I create this while enjoying Reggie our household Greyish chatters in the qualifications, god knows where he choices up 50 percent the things he says, he seems to choose up terms and sequence them together, now which is intellect to the greater degree!!!
