The smaller Timneh Greys usually use our small size but many customers opt to have the medium size to give these very active birds more room to move around. The modified medium size first made for a very large male Congo African Grey who weighs over 560 gm is also an option. So was the wide panel set that covers the front open edges to minimize damages to the zipper for these very busy birds. Make sure you park the zipper all the way to the top; the bird is not likely to arch backward and chew. Please also hang toys inside to keep the bird busy if you are not able to attend to the bird such as during a long drive.
