So I am deciding to hold off on the rose breasted due to the forum's horror stories. But what parrot or bird should I have? I do not know where to post this and would like to get a parrot. I would rather not own a budgie or finch due to their size and I want to hang out with my bird. I would rather have a larger bird but I really don't care because I love all birds. My lifestyle is 7 hours of high school and then I am home the rest of the night. My home is large and nobody minds mess but noise will be an issue as long as it is not louder than a baby screaming according to my family. What would be a good match? Is fostering better?
