Advice for a friend?
My friend is moving into a condo~
Her realtor told her birds were okay in the building. The manager said "no, they're unsanitary and noisy", but the paperwork says nothing about birds not being allowed.
She's experienced with everything from songbirds to parrots to raptors, having interned at two wildlife rehabilitation clinics, and volunteered at a parrot rescue. She's also parrot-sat for friends before, etc so she knows what she's getting into, and has actually been desperate for a parrot for years and wants to make sure she makes the right decision, if it turns out parrots are allowed in her building.
Obviously, she's going to look into this further and get the conflicting information sorted out before she makes any decisions, but she wanted me to ask what the quietest parrot possible is that would be appropriate for apartment living, that is easily obtainable in the US. She understands that parrots make noise, she's just concerned because even if parrots are allowed in the building, the policy is that if a neighbor complains about any pet, she would have to rehome it. She already has an experienced bird owner as a backup home should anything happen. She wants something she can bond to that will bond with her in return, and says she will consider a non-parrot bird if she has to.
Thanks in advance!
