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 our most popular slightly larger birds, and for many good reasons!
