The park’s population of such parrots has increased from five to eight individuals, and each has an impressive repertoire of swear words. At first the zoo tried to isolate the culprits, but the birds continued to swear. Now they decided to place them in a larger group of 100 parrots, hoping that the majority’s pure language would take root.

“When we came to move them the language coming out of the carrier bags was extraordinary, really bad,” said Steve Nichols, the zoo’s general manager. “These were not ordinary swear words, but real, clear statements.”

While the zoo is optimistic about this new approach, there is no guarantee of success. African Grays are known for their large vocabularies, so they are unlikely to completely abandon their abusive tendencies. Additionally, adding new parrots can have the opposite effect and create an even more “unpleasant” environment.
