We've had our G2, Rio, for about 7 months now. We rescued him from a situation of neglect, if not abuse. His cage was placed in a breezeway between the house and garage, and the only interaction from his family was when someone walked through the breezeway, as all of the family except the father was afraid of him. The father owned his own business, and so wasn't home much to give attention to Rio. His cage was so dirty that seeds had sprouted in the bottom tray, and he had only a couple old toys to play with. Luckily, he never started plucking. This family was his 2nd family. We have no info on the first owners. Rio, according to our vet, is about 2 years old, or a bit younger. He's ornery and destructive, like all of his breed, and loves spending time with us, on us, or around us, and displays his own style of affection (I believe it's affection) by rubbing his beak across our skin and clothing, but seldom does he want to be scratched or petted. Sometimes, he'll allow it, but never seems to enjoy it the way my wife's BGM does. I've watched a plethora of videos, read most of the literature I can fine online, read quite a bit in the forums, and talked to other G2 parents in our bird club, and our social circles, and it seems that most of the other G2s out there are much more affectionate. We believe that he just never learned to receive or give affection, and keep hoping that he'll learn with us. As I type this, he's perched on the back of by neck happily ruffling my hair, but when I reach up to scratch his head, he moves away. If Sherri tries to scratch him, he threatens to bite. We've noticed that some parents have 2, or even more, G2s, that live and play together. Which brings me to my question: would Rio possibly enjoy the company of another G2? Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
