The male was hand tamed when I got the pair....he has the cutest
little soft voice when he talks kinda like a small child but the
female was a jealous witch :0) good for breeding I hope and we are
all waiting to see.
I think they make good pets for the time I had them here in the
house and then outside and from the different types of birds that
I have had. The male loved to be handled and was a very sweet bird
I really dont think the female was handled too much if any. If you
dont mind the noise of conures the Alex's are bad noise wise but
my female was like an alarm when anybody went outback so to keep
the neighbors from complaining about the birds when we moved here
I moved some of my louder birds to a breeder friends house and
sold some others. I went to the breeders house one day and was
talking to the male.... he said some words and made a kiss noise
which my friend hadnt heard him do that before.
It was so cute cause he remembered me.
I have about 60 birds....12 pets are here in the house but arent
too loud (my husband sleeps days too so I have to keep the peace
as much as possible anyway I can :0)
I have 2 congos a timneh grey, a rosella, 2 max pionus, a male
canary, 2 adopted amazons and my green cheek pair I am selling
because they are just too loud with constant noise no matter where
I put them inside or outside or what I have tried to do :0( Just
normal conure noise but still its too much for here and it sets
the other birds off too.
Anyhow hope this helps some of what you wanted to know if not just
let me know.
