Hiya! You can call me Crow or Trin, I am new to forums in general, and I thought I would introduce myself! My first bird was a budgerigar named Sky, whom I loved dearly despite his being convinced that humanity was evil. At one point, I had a literal zoo, with three mice, two dogs, one budgie, and two leopard geckos we were pet-sitting for a friend. The mice passed quickly, the leopard geckos went back home, and Sky died February 2018. We are now just down to two dogs. I currently don't have any birds, but I am working with my parents on getting another. Any tips on some species good for second-time parrot owners? Heres some info: I'm a minor, but I wouldn't get the parrot until I was at least 2 years older I would prefer a larger bird (Something between the sizes of a cockatiel and a B&G Macaw) I have two younger sisters who probably won't be handling the bird anyway. My parents can deal with noise as long as it isn't constant screaming. (I.E, they would be okay with a loud bird as long as it only screams a few times a day) They are okay with mess as long as I clean it up. Talking isn't that important to me. I want a bird that I can take places (In a flight suit or carrier of course) I want a bird that is playful and accepts petting. I would be adopting an older bird from a parrot rescue. Size isn't a huge problem, we have plenty of space for a large cage, and for the parrot to fly around.
