Re: Mixing amazons with greys

Unless they were raised around a lot of noise, some African greys don't like the cacophony produced by other species; If you're not breeding the greys, it could work out. If they otherwise like the Amazon, the greys might simply tell the Amazons to "shut up" when it gets too loud.

I kept one of my Senegal parrots for breeding purposes and instead ended up with a love triangle. Both birds were bonded to me, but the Senegal was very jealous of and aggressive toward my Amazon parrot. She was small enough to squeeze through the bars of his cage and attack his toes. He was much larger than her, but he didn't defend himself. If one bird decides he or she is in breeding mode, that bird will make life hard for anybirdy nearby.
