  1. oh yes my senegal hated any other birds and was only in love with me at the time. she now is in love with someone else. birds no she hated him…but when you try some birds may be ok not all of them. they are like us in a way,:)

  2. I see. I was just wondering since you said in an earlier comment that greys generally don’t accept other grey’s as mates after your bird’s age.
