Are you ready for a Pet Bird?

Birds are not just clever animals, they’re also loving, while they’re not as high maintenance as a dog or a cat. That of course makes them a popular option, but they are still a big commitment and is it a commitment you’re ready to take?

They are loud, constantly on the move and they do require careful handling. They can give you a nasty peck if you pester them and they’re not exactly the most welcoming to friends and family. When they’re used to their environment you can let them out, handle them whenever you want and place them back in their cage without any issues.

Parrots are very affectionate to their owners and they can live for around 10 years, so you do have to be 100% committed. They can get on well with other animals too but it can take time for them to build relationships, so patience is key.
