    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
    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
