Senegal Parrot...they are playful & talkers!!!
We no longer have our pair of Senegal Parrots. We may
purchase another pair, for we love this species. I am leaving up the
pictures and information merely for your all's enjoyment. If we buy another
pair, I will be sure to update the website.

The Senegal Parrot is a member of the Poicephalus family. Poicephalus tend
to be a quieter bird relative to other parrot species, but make excellent
talkers. The other feature
of Poicephalus that make them such great pets is that when you go to scratch
them, they love it; they close their eyes and get that dreamy look, they
lean into it, they lift their wing so you can better scratch underneath,
they adore being touched all over! I have found this to be true with
Jardines, Senegals, Red Bellies and even a
Cape that we babysat for a month.
are two subspecies of Senegals, the Orange Bellied, and Yellow Bellied.
are a very cool bird in the essence that they are "self entertaining." If
you have to work long hours and only play with your bird at night, Senegals
are fine with that. They can also be very playful and rambunctious. But, as
you can see by this picture, they love to be cuddled and scratched!!!

thought I knew the alphabet, but when I went to type my friend, I'm not
for baby pictures!!!!
little guy is a baby Senegal. Can you see the little bits of orange starting
to come in on the belly??? Another neat thing about Poicephalus is that they
have a florescent green. You can see it on the legs of this baby!
the orange belly starting to come in? This guy was the coolest baby! He made
the funniest little noises...so we called him Squeaker!

all the way up under the wing
This little guy seems to think
it's his birthday, hmmm...
Senegals have the potential to
be very good talkers. Our parent pair were so entertaining with all
of their words. They will often become one person bird, as will most
birds, as they mature. The other members of the home, who are not
the bird's favorite, have to be willing to really work with the bird
to maintain a relationship. This means not being afraid of being
bitten and not giving up.
