In terms of time and amount needed for parrots depending on the species and also how much you have in your herd.

With 4 pet birds that I have and by species here are the time requirements we have experienced.

Congo African Gray - In comparison, it takes more time to join together. This of course can be a pampering effect too. The Gray Africa is always active and always wants to be the center of attention, especially my attention. He is "Hold me Baby" and he can and often perch on my shoulders all day. I usually sleep when I work at the computer.

Lilac Crown Amazon - Do like to spend quality time with my wife especially but only for a few hours a day combined. He usually likes to spend days napping and of course eating. Occasionally swinging on his swing and playing on his cage.

Pineapple & Fancy Green cheeks Conure - Both are characters who often prefer to play and sit on cages. They really like being held but not as close as Gray Africa or Amazon. They are very happy to sit in cages huddled and preen each other.

The above is an example of the differences between species and time requirements every day to have the most important relationship with your companion parrot.
