African Greys with other parrots ..

Does anyone own an African Grey and also have other parrots in the home ?
I would like to hear from anyone who has Greys living with other parrots in the home
and hear what your experience has been. Thanks.

I do and I have no problems with her or with the birds that she is with but she is bonded to the cockatoo and lives cage-free in a room where there are only large species.

And you have another issue going on: your senegal is only now a sexually mature adult and she will become more and more assertive as she 'comes into her own'. If I were you, I would wait another two years before I start thinking of another parrot UNLESS you get a male senegal or some other male poi that she could bond to.

Besides, I doubt you will like to have a bird on your shoulder for hours and hours and hours every single day of the rest of your life and that's what you will need to do if you get a gray...
