Just a newbie here

Hello. The reason I joined this forum because I want to learn about the parrot and all related behaviour. It's all started when my friend wants to give me the birdcage. Maybe parrot is my kind of choice. But still reading everywhere. Whether it can really suit my lifestyle. They said having a parrot as a pet is a lifetime commitment.

Welcome! And yes, it is a serious commitment! Most of my birds have a maximum lifespan of 35 years so I should outlive them, but Tsali my African Grey will likely be alive longer than I am because he is 25 years younger than I am! So my commitment will have to extend beyond death. At the moment Iím arranging homes for the flock of a local parrot breeder who has died; even after we are gone our birds need our care.

Thanks for your input. A few years ago, I owned a cat. She only can live for around 8 years. It really hurt me when she dies. Emotional attached a lot with her. Since then, I don't have any indoor cat anymore. I'm just giving food to the stray cat or any cat accidentally come to my house. With the fact you mentioned, I think if I decide to have a parrot at home, Maybe I think I'll die first before her time.

How about the monthly budget? Is it expensive? Food, vet, etc.

Monthly budget depends a lot on what kind of bird you have, where you live, and how much time you are willing to spend making hour own toys, etc.
