Re: Hello from South Africa

I love long posts

Have you considered a Senegal parrot (Poicephalus senegalus)?
The crazy thing is: all the american ones seem to be one-person (shy) birds, overhere they are typical outgoing all family birds (unless they are raised and kept by a single person that does not socialize them at all).
They are small-ish (so not scary for a first time parrotowner), compact and compared to a lot of other parrots not really loud.

The Meyers were quite the hype here, but since people expected them to stay tame & cudly without regular interaction .. they get rehomed quite a bit (more a people-issue than a parrot-fail afaik). Lovely parrots.
