    Does Charlie prefer men or women? Was Charlie worked with in terms of talking?  Greys are, of course, the ‘best’ talkers if worked with when young.  What is the average life span of a Grey – is it somewhere between 25-30 years?

    Thanks So Much – Cindy S

    I recently went to MARS for the first time last Saturday and all I have to say is WOW!  ALL the birds are just so wonderful and each one with a personality of its own. Everyone that works there from the volunteers to Lu just ROCK!  Well I do have a soft spot for Charlie, but it’s not hard to NOT fall in love with each and every bird. Also spending 3 1/2 hours in one day was NOT enough time to spend there. Yep, I do see myself going back to spend time with the people at MARS and the feathered residents. 🙂

    Thank-you so much Rowan for your visits, and your kind words.

    Charlie has no preference, he only dislikes other male greys.

    I am glad charlie has found his forever home and that it works out for him he and the persons who have adopted him are blessed. I will miss him but there are so many more that do need homes as much as charoie did. Bottom line they are ALL special
