Thinking of getting a parrot?



You've seen the lovely bird in the pet shop.... Or the one you feel sorry for and want to bring home.

I'm not trying to discourage anyone from getting a parrot - they're fabulous pets.

But they are NOT easy to keep.

Have a link about the whole situation - beware, sound...

I Think the longevity of them would put me off.

Same as Tortoises, I mean you would have to bequeath them to someone in your will.

I have a friend with a parrot and boy is it demanding.

Nodding...

It's just that they're so appealing in pet shops - but I'd not suggest getting a parrot from such, anyway - find a breeder.

The price puts a lot of casual buyers off at least the big parrots - some of them are well over 1000!

But even the smaller ones need a lot of work and care and live a *long* time - all things being equal, Harry should be with us for another 20 years or so!
