Large parrots like Macaws,Cockatoos,Amazons & Grays live up to 60-80 years depending on the specific species.The largest parakeet the Alexandrine Parakeet ( Raw parrot) life span is 40 -45 years.Nepalese is the largest sub species in Alex.
I personally like Macaws & Alex.Grays are the to talkers.So if u wanna parrot to talk just like in you own voice go for Congo African Gray.

Khurram sb both sub spices are intelligent & learn talking.Timneh African gray starts early. But Congo even copies your sound quality.Timneh gets less nervous in crowd.
