So I am sitting here wondering the same thing. If you have
relative peace and quiet with a Gray or two...why in the world
would you want to add a B&G MaCaw or a Blue Front Amazon. A
Macaw is ESPECIALLY LOUD and can ACCIDENTALLY BITE OFF YOUR
FINGER WHILE IT IS JUST PLAYING. A MaCaw has no idea of its
biting power and the best of trainers have lost a finger or
two out of the blue when the bird was calm. A Blue Front
Amazon is also likely to be very noisy and demanding. Some
people think they are more mellow than the two popular Yellows
but I have not seen much of a difference. Grays are much
quieter in terms of decibal level. Let me emphasize: MUCH
