My Adorable Senegal Parrot Syd

Senegal Parrot, Poicephalus Senegalus

A Senegal Parrot can be adorable but they have there moods as well, like us humans, good and bad days. They can be extremely playful and talkative, absolutely like company - they don't like being alone at all. Leave the radio on or some music, it feels like company for them.

Food and the Senegal Parrot Birds

Vets generally tell you to give them the parrot food mix, but my dear Syd liked it for a short while and then decided it was not for him, I still bought two more packs but no mister would not eat it, decided human food was more to his liking. He of course loves veggies and fruit of all kinds, grapes, guavas, pears are his favorite. Syd also loves broccoli or he has a love hate relationship with brocoli, he will have a great big fight with raw broccoli, corn on the cob - raw or cooked is also one of his all time greats. He does have in his food bowl in the morning fresh walnuts, whole nuts/monkey nuts and sunflower seeds, I know they say sunflowers are not so good for parrots, but in his case it is not his primary seed in his diet. Syd absolutely loves the yolk of poached eggs or boiled, he can't eat it fast enough and of course he loves cooked pasta of all kinds. Spaghetti being his all time favorite pasta, of course with the sauce on it, then he holds it nicely and proceeds to chomp all the way down, sort of.

In the home with the Senegal Parrot Behavior

The Senegal Parrot can be extremely demanding, I am studying and working from home, but he can be quite demanding of your time, they need lots of attention. They can be highly entertaining though, sitting giggling next to the computer, giggles like me of course, climbing up anything that he is able to. Just on the floor he becomes this little stalker, stalking anybodies shoes, becomes this little demon. I won't talk about my ears and fingers, they've had some nice chomps on them, I have learnt to become more cautious, might just be my little adorable Senegal Parrot Pet.
