Is anyone on this NG familiar with this parrot (Ruppell's) or knows someone who owns one and can share information re: temperament, vocalization, habits, etc.? I've seen a young hen that interests me but I haven't been able to find too much information about this particular species. Thanks in advance.

Already checked the Lexicon. Was hoping for more
information from owners/breeders if there are any
out there. From what I understand, Ruppell's are not that common even though they belong to the Poiceph group. I'm curious as to what kind of pet bird it would make. Thanks all the same, Toucanldy.
