Question about a rehome that all of a sudden became available

i will 99% sure get a senegal and am set to it with my breeder but then all of a sudden a jardine became available near me. But i was just wondering, would it be too big . I always was set on a bird no bigger then a senegal since thats the biggest flighted bird i can provide for in my apt but can a jardine be happy in a similar setting with its bigger size? i will not be able to provide a bigger cage then a cage that a senegal would live in however since i work from home, he will get about 10 hours of out of cage time every day. Basically whenever i get up till whenever i sleep minus the time i am outside or in the gym. does a jardine require that much more space and money to provide for or would a similar setting be enough. personality/termperments/cuddliness wise i think both are very similar and have no differences. Btw out of curiosity are there any difference in male or female?

This is going to be a tough question to be answered because as I recall no one here has a Jardine. To me I think it is ok for a jardine to be in your apartment - as long as you can provide it with about 3 metres to fly back and forth then is it perfectly fine. I have only ever seen Jardines in videos and to me their personalities/termperments/cuddliness are very much similar to senegals with a added bonus that jardines are good talkers. Jardine will need a bigger size cage than a senegal but for every other expenditure it is the same I reckon. I don't recall seeing Jardines as being popular birds in other forums either, I don't know why this is, I would love to have a jardine if I have plenty of time and more space.

What Tippa said if you want it, take it. I tend to regret a lot of things and not taking a bird is definitely one of them!

Aww they look nice, don't think I've seen much of them. If you think you can handle it then why not?
