Hello, All! Glad to be part of the community, I am part of Parrot Life on Facebook, and am just looking to find some good solid information about parrot parenting.
I don't have a bird as of yet, but I am saving up my money, and making toys and perches with the spare change
I want to have at least 600 put away before bringing a bird home, for the cost of the bird itself, the food, air purifier, and the initial veterinary visit soon after bringing home the parrot. My animals have always been a very important part of my life, and I am trying to learn as much as I can before bringing home such an intelligent and needy creature.
I was originally planning on a cockatiel, but after a recent trip to a petshop, I can't get this sweet little cinnamon Green Cheek Conure out of my head! She was dying for my attention, flipping on her back, chasing me, flipping her head upside down for scritches and waving her feet... I was instantly in love, and am still sad that I couldn't bring her home that day
