"Do Not Get" List

So we're always talking about how much we love our birds and what birds we would love to have for one reason or another. I decided to create a thread to see which Parrots you would never consider adding to your family?

For me I think it would be a large Macaw. They are absolutely stunning but I would always be afraid that one day something would tick the bird off and I'd get bitten and lose a finger or something. Mini Macaws on the other hand I am fascinated with and would love to have one!

Lol, I figured with you there wouldn't be after seeing your "wants" list. That's not a bad thing.

A hyacinth macaw, too big. Couldn't house it comfortably.
A larger 'too, due to noise level.
A Patagonian conure because they are LOUD!
Anything rare because I wouldn't want the responsibility.

So far the consensus seems to be larger birds then! I would like one but at the same time I don't want to be scared of getting bitten all of the time. Plus, I doubt I could give enough attention to a Macaw.

My dream bird would be a cockatoo. Lol. Large birds aren't a turn off for me, just generally mean ones are, and I have never met a Macaw that wasn't mean. Lol

I can't say there is any bird species I wouldn't consider, I would consider any given the right bird and circumstances. They are bird species I am less likely to get, Amazons for one, parrotlets used to be one till I met Pixie. I must say I'm not dying to get lovebirds, though it is still a possbility.

I have a parrotlet now and I'd never get another. Never. A large 'too is out of the question for noise and neediness.

There isn't exactly a bird I wouldn't want to try at one point. It's not realistic to own every species throughout my life however, so some species I have a lack of interest in and will most likely skip out on are Amazons, Eclectuses, and Lories. But who knows? With this newest addition (Kai the macaw) I doubt I will be bringing in many future birds at all though, but I absolutely love birds so I will want to expose myself to them in other ways.
