one day when i was visiting my local humane society, i came across a room full of birds. in which i found henry, my senegal parrot. i immediately bonded with him and my mom, not a big fan of birds, decided to let me adopt him. to this day she says it was the best thing she ever did. we all love henry. every morning when we get up he is chirping away in his cage and soon after he helps my mom let the dogs out side, by yelling "GET OUT", as soon as the door opens. he is the best thing we ever got and he is loved very much by everyone. i would recommend senegal parrots to any one looking for a bird.

I have two senagal parrots. their names are Cola and Fanta. They are two years and three months old. they love eating bananas and having a shower. Sometimes they can bite but they are tame birds. i bought them for 115 euro. They scream alot. Fanta can stand on a ball. But they both enjoy flying around in my house.

I have several parrots, including a 4 y/o Meyer's. Picasso a.k.a "Peeps" is definately a momma's boy. He is a fairly quiet bird that says a few phrases in a deep grovely voice. He says "Hey baby", "What a good boy" and "Hello". He also makes various household beeps, noises and gives kisses. Peeps is very very affectionate with me. He likes to wedge himself under my jaw and puff himself up and take a nap. He loves to have his head and cheeks scratched. The only thing bad that I can say is that Peeps HATES my husband. I think he views him as a rival and he will launch himself at my husband and attack him. He has given several nasty bites. So, he has to be monitored when my husband is in the same room and sometimes has to have a "time out" in his cage (the bird, not my husband...haha). He gets along fairly well with the other birds, though and I wouldn't trade him.

I have two Eclectus Parrots. Lexi is my almost 2 year old female and Jasper is a 5 month old male. The are very pretty birds with a high intellegence. Lexi talks up a storm. She says new words every day. She laughs when someone does something funny. She tells people hi and bye at appropriate times.

I have had my senegal for four months now, and he is the cutest little bidie in the world.
I am 10 and still Jasper has favoured me out of me, my mum, my dad, sister and brother!!!
Jasper is very sweet, and we let him have the free run of the house.
Often we put him on a towel and give him a lovely cool shower.
He loves it!
Jasper has bad features too. He climbs my mums curtains, and sits on the top of our curtain pole, which drives her mad if he rips the net! Senegal parrots are very good with children, but i think they would gladly except being a spoiled little birdie!
Jasper is quite spoilt!
All my friends want to come and see him, as he is so sweet! And i am the only one they know with a parrot as sweet as Jasper!!

My family adopted a Meyers april 2003. On day one, Spike chose my husband. He stuck his hand in the cage Spike got on and it was love. I put my hand out later the same day and Spike bit through my thumbnail. I clean his cage and make sure his water is clean several times daily. I also get up a 6AM and cut up vegetables for our bird. I usually have a variety of fruit and veg. apple, plum, pear, banana, yams, zuchini, yellow crookneck squash, cucumber, broccoli, alfalfa sprouts, mushroom, tomato, greenpepper, you get the idea. Spike just threw it over the side for 2 weeks. Now he waits impatiently for me to get out of his way so he can see what he has. I split his produce into 3 bowls. So he hops from bowl to bowl. Spike came to us with a large vocabulary. He used to live at a pet shop. Then a man rescued him and had him for 15 years . Even with 2 bad bites and repeated attempts to kill me. I love our Meyers. I really try now to think like a parrot and not irritate him. I like to think I'm smarter than he is but I'm the one in the kitchen cutting up all the vegetables.

we purchased "samson" our senegal on august 19th, 2005 at 5 years of age. he immediately bonded to my husband. samson is a silly clown! my husband can do anything to him but most of the time he hates my guts! he is very moody but i still love him. samson says pretty bird all the time, he laughs, and he dangles upside down in his cage, it's hilarious. I like to take him for walks outside. I even let him carefully climb small trees. He likes to lick my husbands face. If anybody is thinking about buying a senegal. Remember they only bond to one person. But they are fun to have!

My Senegal parrot's name is Sophie. I bought her as a hand-fed baby ten years ago. She loves to sit on my shoulder and laugh! She also tries to feed me regurgitated food when she thinks I might be hungry. As yucky as this might seem, it is the ultimate display of love a Senegal can give you. Her sunny V-neck sweater is her best feature! She is very much a member of our family, even if she does enjoy terrorizing the cat. She actually chases her across the floor and attempts to bite her! Must be all those green feathers that make her the jealous type. She is a contant joy to me and I hope to have her many more years! Bobbie Jo Ottey

Hi I am from South Africa, I had always wanted an African Grey. On my visit to the pet shop one day to pick out a Grey I came across 'The Senegal'. She is now 18months old we've had her since she was 6 weeks. Her name is chuckita. Our dear senegal is not quiet at all she sings so much. Her latest - she has mimicked the cricket that was stuck in the bathroom. She is extremely playful and madly in love with my boyfriend. She thinks he is her mate, and trys to feed him. Wouldn't swap her for the world
