Looking to Adopt a bird
Posted 13 February 2011 - 03:24 AM
I do have children and that would have to be taken into account as they have no experience with birds at all........That being said is there anyone out there looking for a good home?

But you REALLY, REALLY have to research what bird you are getting. A Goffin takes an ENORMOUS amount of your time, as one person put's it, it's like having a 2 year old for 70 years, they are the #1 rehomed bird.
Green Cheeks are pretty quiet but can be nippy, Sun Conures are loud, Cockatiels can be loud continuously, Quakers can be VERY cage territorial, Grey's produce allot of dander, but the biggest thing is birds aren't like cats and dogs, they need/crave human interaction for their lifetime, you can't go away weekends all the time and leave them in their cage or not be able to play with them days at a time.
Birds I think are GREAT pets if you want to spend time with them, if you don't or you get busy or your life is just to hectic birds can become very unsocial and very loud.
You have to make sure they get at least two hours out of cage time and watch them, they get into everything and make sure you research the positive and negative attributes of each one, they all have different personalities and can be much moodier that a cat, dog, rabbit, hamster, etc..
Saying that, you get 100 times back what you put into them, the are great to have if you really enjoy them, but they are much more time consuming, but their worth it

I realize now from seeing their reaction that anything bigger is out of the question...
