    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.
