Great info!!!!!! I did not know all this getting my Mango ( Hehe another Mango. Very original. ) But I love her squawks and all. She is overall fun and loving. She is the pride and joy of my flock. But for those who do not like loudness this might not be the bird for you. As someone stated above if they are on your shoulder and squawk your ear goes deaf for 30 seconds or so. Overall an amazing, smart and great companion.
