so once again i am becoming "obsessed" with larger birds. i am pretty sure i need one
i just feel like that a bigger bird is what i am missing in life. im not sure how to describe it....
i was watching a parrot documentary (parrot confidential), and there was people who were rescuing all of these parrots, and all i kept thinking was " i really want to do that". i always go on Craigslist to look at any birds on there, and there are a lot in need. yes yes i know i cant save them all, but there are some really nice tempered ones that come through that i would love to have.
and then i think that i only have parakeets and those are simple, but then i think that i give my parakeets more toys and attention than some of the parrots i find on CL. there is always a person giving away a large bird and there are no toys.... i could give it a better life with out even trying and just doing what i usually do, making toys and spending my day with them.
i love my little flock, but i remember the time i snuggled with a 'too, a rescued 'too. and i just think that i really want a snuggly parrot (that isnt the only reason), a bird that i can really enjoy and not just watch, one that i can bond with. if i spoil my little flock, imagine how much a larger parrot(compared to a keet) would be spoiled? for one who doesnt own other birds, i have a good idea of what i would get myself into- possible biting, screaming, more cleaning, plucking etc. etc. so its not like i am oblivious to those things and i want one just to hold or to talk, i want one for the bond, the unspoken bond that can't be explained with words.
am i going crazy here?!?
for my other pets: cat, rabbit, 6 fish tanks, 2 fire belly newts, 2 african dwarf frogs, 22+ crayfish, fish
