Red face Hi Everyone

Hi Everyone!

I'm in the process of looking into a new feathered baby. I currently have an African Grey Griffy I rescued 22 years ago she's now 25, however she always loved men my husband would never give her any time. I've since left him after 32 years and I now want a bird that I can love on and hang out with. What bird is very affectionate wants to hang out and get lots of cuddles and wouldn't mind going out in public. I still work but have a BF that is home all day and also wants to have a bird that he can love on too. So yes this bird must love men and women. We also have an Austrailan Shepherd named Willow.

Thanks for your help and consideration: Birds I've looked at and considered: Senegal, Pionus, and Cockatoos.

Hi and welcome to Talk Parrots, I don't know much about sens pions or toos but I do know your chances of having a very loving and affectionate bird are much better if you get one from a reputable breeder. You can meet the breeder and the chicks and pick out what you like and go and visit the bird a couple of times a week as its being fed and have hands on time with it.

This way when you bring the bird home it knows you and will move in to a more stable calmer environment because its already socialized with you.

A good breeder will be able to tell you all about the birds quirks and problems and life before you want to purchase it. They usually give you some food the bird is already eating and they will be able to take your phone calls if you have issues with the bird after purchasing it and bringing it home. As a breeder wants the bird to settle in and be happy and healthy with their new parronts as well.

Good luck choosing your future feathered friend. I hope you get a sweet lovable bird for you and your boyfriend.
