Hi guys, well not quite that green because I had bugies when young but now approaching very old age (53!), I am now disabled and rstired in the west midlands and looking for my first parrot companion, im guessing which ever parrot I say I have chosen I will get positives and negatives but I have narrowed my choice to an Alexandrine or conure,
I would love to hear from all and get your advice especially uk and local members.
Yep I know how much care a young parrot needs, I have secure life long accomodation and my income whilst not huge is secure, I am disabled and use an electric wheelchair but im not "ill" its my weight bearing abilities that are limited and I have 2 hours care a day to help with that. As an advantage over most of you I now know what my future holds and whilst it sure aint perfect I am gonna be home for my little friend, I have no other pets apart from my tropical and cold water fish, I know im never going to move, I know I wont have to change jobs, my child rearing days are over, so my new lil mate will get 24/7 companionship and access to my home. A long intro I know but if im gonna ask you guys for advice you need the facts.
I have read and read and read everything I can to make this decision and have adapted things even throwing out my teflon pans and george foreman grill! but there is no substitute for experience, I was a property surveyor and a very good one, I could write 20 books on how to build a house but I wouldnt answer every question you had. So there you have it, get back to me, bless you all and your lovely little (and not so little) chums.
