    Who's there?
    Chery and I have a new to me old senegal just got re-homed yesterday.

    This place is HUGE. I'm a scared as the new bird is.

    Where do I go to ask, learn about Senegals
    What to do when they first get home
    I know the core work of vet, pellets, seed, no teflon, no dogs that hunt and some toys.

    So, because I want to find some seniee familys, please tell me where to perch and see what to do,

    thank you)

    Welcome to you and your new old bird!

    You've got the basics right. Remember that birds need fresh food too - sweet potato, peas, broccoli, green beans, radish, cabbage, spinach, carrot, berries and pomegranate are good. Some foods, like onion, garlic, avocado and chocolate are toxic. You're absolutely right that dogs with a strong prey drive should be kept apart from birds, but I would extend this to all dogs. Sometimes a dog - even a very gentle dog with little hunting instinct - will just catch sight of a bird's movement and react before you know what's happening. It rarely ends well for the bird.
