very funny think of the poor person who they have been stolen from. Hopefully they wont be preyed upon by cats sparrowhawks or anyone else. If it were me i'd be gutted but then we have pet birds and love animals. If people cant show a bit of compassion dont bother posting

African Grays are very smart, the 2nd most talking Parrots and need a lot of care and attention, this or these thieves can only have 2 motives, to keep or sell on, they could of taken the owners best friends, the Parrots will mimick the owners voice and any noises around there home, the owners will be devasted they been stolen, let's hope they are noisy and irratating to the Thief and somebody reads this and reports to the Police

exactly whoever they belong to maybe on their own and these parrots are their only companions. Parrots are smart, at least you have a heart Malcy. Pity the first poster on this article cant show a bit of compassion instead of crass comments

I hope the thieves have their fingers bitten off and end up watching the birds crush their finger bones to dust.

here here so do I. We temporarily took in a canary last year, they were securely locked in the shed, some bright spark got in and released them, the idiots had no thought for how the poor souls would fare or the devastation it causes the owner

Maybe if they are that "noisy and irritating" could it be that one of their neighbours has possibly dealt with the problem.

I have a pair of african greys myself and I know I'd be mortified if they got stolen, even if they can be really annoying.
