They are beautiful, that's for sure. I don't remember knowing anyone who owns one, but I do remember Erin having nothing but negative comments about them when she worked in a pet store.
Their diet, from what I understand, is totally liquid or fruit. And they are prolific poopers. At Gatorland they have a walk-in exhibit of both birds and you are supplied with an umbrella when you go in.
Keep doing your research and good luck! I'm sure you've already realized that by having two they will bond to each other and not to you - but that depends on what kind of pet you want. I have three very young birds right now (finally weaned, thank goodness!) but being in separate cages and separate areas has kept them from bonding to each other. The Senegal is ready to come out and play as soon as the cage door is open and I have never seen a cockatiel who will sit and have his head rubbed as long as this one will.
Again, good luck. I know you will do the right thing for you.
