I didn't want to be the one to tell you, but Cheryl made it a bit
easier for me.
When you have pairs like yours, where one bird is very tame and the
other is wild caught, the chances of them ever breeding is very slim.
I have been down this road myself and thought I could somehow make it
work and it never did.
Imported or wild caught, should be with another bird of the same type.
I wish you lots of luck, but I know your heart is set on Senegal
babies, but I don't think it is going to happen.
