Lisa, I can tell you are inexperienced when you make a
comment saying that Congos are superior to the Timneh.
As a breeder of both of these birds I can ASSURE you that the
Congo is in no way superior to the Timneh. They are just two
different sub species and BOTH have their redeeming qualities.
I can tell you this, and this is only my opinion, the Timneh
is far less neurotic than the Congo.
If this is your first attempt at breeding any bird, I would
tell you that you are in for the ride of your life. Greys
are not "starter" birds when it comes to breeding.
