Female Senegal Parrot

I have a male senegal parrot. I am the second owner and his first owner was a male. Ajax (senegal parrot) it did not take too long to have him on my hand. He did mouth a lot. He nips a little but does not hurt. Two days later he still is very shy and has stopped nipping. He is really sweet. I don't know a lot about parrots but he took to me real fast. He had never been out of his cage and now he loves it.

I did clip his wings because he does not know how to fly and just hurts himself. I will teach him to fly once he is more comfortable with his new home. I really think his mouthing is just because he is still nervous here. I am sure it will continue to get better. He already lets me rub his head feathers. He seems to really enjoy it. He does not sing at all. I hope that will change soon. I know they don't make as much noise as other parrots.

Here is our Senegal Parrot Information page that will help you. Best of all, at the bottom of the page are stories posted by Senegal parrot owners.

I am friends with someone that worked at a privately owned pet store. She had a Senegal Parrot for sale, that she couldn't sell because it became attached to her and didn't like the customers. Just so you know, Senegal's can become one person birds if you don't encourage them to interact with others often.

As far as behavior is concerned, there is not much difference. Once the birds reach sexual maturity, we may see a male bonding closer with the human female caretaker and the female bonding closer with the male human caretaker, but if the bird has been well taken care of, loved, respected and taught to be a good birdy citizen, these differences are minor at best.

So, feel free to get either one because either sex can bring you great joy and also a few tears along the way. Take good care of any bird you are lucky enough to get. Feed it wholesome food, give it the largest cage you can afford, natural branch wood perches, safe toys and most of all your time and energy. Also, yearly visits to Avian Vet will take care of any physical issues that come up. Reading and study about parrots in general and your choice of parrot in particular is an ongoing lifelong project. You will never know everything there is to know about birds, and you can learn something new everyday by reading, and finding places on the internet where people have your kind of bird. You will also make many friends along the way, and can feel proud of yourself for a job well done when you look at your beautiful, healthy, happy and well adjusted bird.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
