Hi guys, I'm kinda new here, and I don't really know if this is the right forum for my question, but here we go! (sorry if I'm in the wrong place) I'm in the middle of my (very long) research before getting a bird... I explained that I live alone in an apartment, go to college and work after that. That means the house is unocuppied for about 9 hours a day (some days more, others less...). Some people said I should not get a bird at all, others said it's okay (most people have full time jobs anyway), as long as I provide mental stimulation for my bird.... And other people said I should get two birds instead of one... What do you guys think? Would foraging toys and other toys be enough to keep my future bird active? Or will it be too lonely? Some people say you should never get two birds together because they won't bond to you, others say it would be bad for the bird to be alone all this time.... Basically everyone says different things and that's confusing me... I don't really know what to do... I think it's important to say that when I'm at home, the bird will stay with me all the time. Can you help me?
