Is there such thing as a man's bird?

I have noticed on another forum most of the men there they have BIG birds such as Macaws, Amazons, and Cockatoos. I am a man and I have budgies Do you think it's more manly for a man to have big birds? What is your opinion on a man like myself with small.......birds?

Well I never knew. Maybe I should take my budgies out to the park more often.

You must have seen in some forums of men posing with big Macaws and Amazons, but never with budgies. Seriously though I believe you about there is no such thing.

You got some awesome birds, I wouldn't say yours are girlies.

Green Cheeks are unisex, I have seen in most forums both men and women have green cheeks.

I have an Amazon, Budgies, Bourkes, Quail and Finches, but over the years we've kept all sorts.

I think it totally depends on the specific person, I have no problem having a picture taken with Rocky or a Zebra Finch lol.

My brother prefers softbills I prefer hookbills so my birds tend to be larger than his

I think some men like to associate anything that is BIG as being more manly, so you are right about it depends on the specific person.

I too have seen this on other forums, but I think it just depends on what type of bird suits you best!!

no there is no such thing! I know a lot of men who have had smaller birds, including on this forum and on other forums. Some probably think that they are cool if they can handle a larger bird. I on the other hand am a girl and have had budgies, cockatiels, indian ringneck, linnie, senegal and a mealy amazon parrot. I would like a large bird one day and I am a girl so I think that anyone can have whatever bird they want no matter what their gender.

Geoff Capes kept budgies!
~I had a too and hubby hated her.
My bro had a patagonian conure and they're not large birds.
it's a myth.
it's not like the staffy thing with the idiots.
'Oh look at me ~I've got a tough dog I cant control!'
can you imagine that with a parrot!
