Senegal vs GCC
I am down to these 2 birds right now. Please help me pick the one thats best for me. I want a cuddly bird who is willing to spend time with me and interact. I dont want to have to force him to spend time with me (like i normally do with my budgie). I dont want a bird as independent as a budgie (in general). I want him to want to be around me and just chill out or be cuddled with. And i live in an apt btw so these 2 birds fit the bill.
PS: Please don't reply with stuff like "all birds are unique and have different personalities and all that". I already know all this. I just want to increase my chances of having the qualities i am looking for. You wouldn't recommend me a cockatoo for an apt bird just because yours happens to be super quiet would you? Likewise i am just trying to increase my chances and i am well aware that every bird is different. I just honestly dont want a bird like all the budgies that i had/have. I love budgies but i want something different who i can have a better connection with. My budgies are all tame but i don't seem to connect to them as much as i would like. They are always kinda doing there own thing and would rather be with themselves or their friends rather then ever come out and be touched. Even though i can scratch their head once in awhile for a few secs. So i want a bird size of Senegal or maybe a bit smaller (gcc). So please help me figure out which of these birds are the best fitting for me?
ps: there is no bird rescue near me
psps: i do go to pet stores to see myself but as we all know, babies are deceiving so i would like to know how life will be with the mature versions and which will be best fit for me.
i have been doing research for about 5-6 months intensively and i am finally down to these 2. However if you guys think another bird fits the bill then let me know.
i just wish the conures were a bit bigger and more similarly sized to a Senegal.
