    Hi-- I just got a senegal last week after years of being
    tempted by the "big birds." I had parakeets all my life,
    but always wanted a real parrot. When I actually had to
    make the choice at the bird store, I picked the senegal
    because he/she was calmer and sweeter and quieter than the
    others I'd thought about. He's 11 weeks old now, and I'm
    wondering what to expect. He seems pretty bonded to me,
    wanting to cuddle under my chin and making cooing noises.
    He also wants to put his head in my mouth (!), which I
    assume is baby bird stuff since that would be how his mom
    would have fed him. I also assume I shouldn't let him do
    it, right? (he hasn't bitten or tried to bite anyone
    yet).My main concern is that my husband is away for the
    next five months and we are at the moment a family of three
    females. What can I do to help make sure that my husband
    doesn't lose an earlobe when he returns? Sorry for being
    such a bird newbie, but I really do love him and want him
    to have a good life with us, and us with him. Shawna
