: I was wondering however,
: what kind of temperament I'm dealing with.
Pionus are among the calmest, low-strung (as opposed to high-strung)
: I have had great success in the
: past of raising(calming) both lovebirds and quakers into lovely
: companions when others have had little success (with lovebirds).
Pionus tend to be quite calm naturally. They should be a breeze.
: Do they make friendly companions?
extremely. I've never been greeted by a bird with as much enthusiasm
as my pionus. My***atoo craves more attention in general, but he does not
go 'nuts' like my pionus did when i got home.
: For example, I don't generally like to keep my bird in a
: cage (I have a jungle gym for it).
OK... but I recommend against this. Especially since my pionus had
a taste for electrical cords.
: My last bird would hop on me to wake me up
: the morning, waddle into the room I was in....
I had a ladder on my pionus cage, and he would descend and walk over
to me for attention. He would also go home on his own when he was done.
However, again, I discourage this unless you are watching the bird whenever
it has freedom to leave the cage.
: What kind of diet does a Pionus have?
Standard parrot diet... but my breeder recommended a higher percentage
ov veggies than some other parrots.
: Also, are they
yes, but their voices are not clear. in general they will have less
vocabulary than a gray, amazon, or mccaw, but may have better vocabulary
