Senegal or a red bellied?

Anyone own a red bellied? How do they compare with each other? Any reason to prefer a red bellied over Senegal or Senegal over red bellied? Looks, price, talking abilities aren't important. Who has a more passive temperament? Who is quieter. Who is cuddlier? Who is more sociable and friendlier( less of a 1 person bird)..

I can honestly say, every single bird is different, so most people can't comment on it! Typically I know that sennies are well loved but are known to have some unwanted aggressive behaviours, but so does every bird, potentially! I think if you like both species, you should handle one or two of each one yourselves. Loads of people here have greys who are abolutely lovely but many I have met in person have been very aggressive and fearful. It really is all down to the bird!

Look up Jardine parrrot also, another one the Poicephalus family specie. If I haven't got already so many birds I would have loved me a Jadine parrot. I saw one on youtube and he talked brilliantly well .

Senegals are wilful birds, mine is not aggressive to human, but aggressive to other parrot species. Like has already mentioned they're all different so it's just potluck picking the right one.

Tippa, I met a lovely Jardine's yesterday, absolutely stunning thing. They're bigger than I thought, but kinda not? I dunno how to explain it. I thought they were small but perhaps a bit bigger, but then it was smaller and black capped caiques too, they're TINY!

Here's the Jardine's I met

Aww, he's cute!

I have been looking up at Jardine, I know they're quite big at weight of 200-250 grams, Hanhs macaw weigh at around 165 grams so it was a surprise to me that Jardines are quite a bit heavier than Hansies.

You know my new falcon Bandit? He only weighs 119grams he's TINY! Jardine's are pretty stocky, that's what I find different

Wow, that's a surprise about falcon Bandit - that's minutiae! .

Senegals can weigh about 120 to 170 g, but they look tiny. When I pick up senegal Duke he feels very heavy but looks tiny. I think Poicephalus species weigh heavier than they look. Some of these other so called big birds are all feathers and no meat on the bones.

Definitely! I can imagine most of the parakeets (like IRN etc) don't weigh that much compared to some of the 'fatter' birds
