Daisy, I believe we already discussed this. I swear you re-ask the same questions all the time.

Yes, I do love Greys. As I said before, probably a Congo. I've heard great things about Timnehs but something about Congos draws me. But we'll have to see when the time comes. That is my answer.

I also like how the Congo is larger. I like larger birds. However, after getting some major bites (that weren't very major compared to larger parrots such as macaws) I am a bit wary of their beaks... >.<

There is a Timneh at my vet's office that says, "Goooo Bucks!" (Bucks, or, Ohio State Buckeyes, is our football team.) and it whistles. It also meows, which I find hilarious.

The Grey at the vet's office is cage protective and it has tried to bite me before. I've noticed it is quick.

nuh uh I hated getting bitten by Axel, she'd grab your hand with her foot as hard as she could (those talons ain't small!) and she'd pinch you really hard with her beak, then when it started to bleed she'd twist it D;

Most large owls even when hand raised are pretty aggressive
