I'm new to the forums and you can call me Ana
I know this is a common topic, but I really do need help! I have grown up with lovebirds, taken care of a Galah (Rose-breasted Cockatoo) for a friend for a couple of months, and am constantly around my boyfriends female Congo African Grey. I have a German Shepherd and I love her to death and am capable of taking care of difficult, demanding pets. I love birds and would like a new friend
I have slept in my whole life and think its time for a change and I would like a natural alarm clock ;P , so the waking up early will not bother me. I am thinking to either go small and simple or go all out and get an amazing medium-large size bird.
-I am particular to a cuddly bird, but not an absolute must (if I find I like a Grey or something..)
-noise is not exactly an issue, but I don't think I can tolerate a bird known for screaming
-should be able to tolerate the female grey, don't want any huge feuds. they don't need to be on same perch or anything. is it that two females cant get along or female/male grey...?
-would be wonderful if he/she could learn to talk, but is also not a must
-I would love a funny parrot, a "ham"
-jealousy wouldn't be good, I am in a committed relationship and Max and his parrot aren't going anywhere
Thoughts so far:
Poicephalus Parrots, Pionus
Blue-fronted Amazon, Timneh AG over congo (personally I like the look better)
Suggestions are what I'm looking for if I missed something and please enlighten me!
