    PS--Pet greys are rarely bred because they've developed a
    strong bond with the owner. Breeder greys only have bonds with
    each other, not people. In my opinion, it's a very cruel thing
    to do to a pet grey when trying to breed her/him. Most other
    owners of pet greys will tell you the same thing.
