a quaker is more of big parakeet very sweet bird. senegal is a bigger or should i say thicker bird. as for as chitchat they both don't mimic much.
the quaker i feel is more loving .however, both good birds. if you want a cuddle bug i.e. funny and mimics, try a mexican red headed amazon. a small type of amazon. the only thing is they achieve hyper at sunset.
Answers: Having had both I can honestly say a foot fed ,socialized bird of either would be great. Pick the one you like or the one that chooses you. . I honestly couldn't clear a choice. They are both great birds. If noise is a factor take the sennie.Quakers can get rowdy (mine wasn't but some can rattle your eardrums) Sennies have a tiny voices but they can swot to speak well. Quakers are not noted for talking but some speak in good health. $200 for a senegal is a good deal in my collar of the woods. Just say eeney ,meeny miney moe
You should get a Quaker nearby awesome little birds with a Loving and cute personality the Quakers are sometimes compared to the African Gray because there polite talkers and the Senegal isn't so much. But whatever u choose.
