These playful and independent birds enjoy climbing, chewing and playing
with their toys. Their curious and friendly nature makes them good family
pets, although they should be handled regularly to ensure they remain
tame. The relatively small size of these birds and their quiet nature make
them suitable for apartment living. They can learn to speak many words and
can be taught to perform tricks. Senegals are one of the more popular
slightly larger birds, and for many good reasons!

Although these birds are relatively small parrots, they seem to be unaware
of their size. They have been known to attack much larger birds and chase
other household pets such as dogs and cats.
