Rollerblading along the road
I'm still in research stage I might be keen to get another bird but I wouldn't rush into a life time commitment lightly .
I indeed did read things wrong. Apologies for that.I agree with you ,that you may be reading things wrong.
That's true. My Fred is adorable and loveable but he's very skittish. And when he's spooked it takes him time to get over it but he always does. That's Fred, we've gotten used to him and love him anyway. Sometimes he spooks himself and blames my fiancee! That's an absolute riot!They are well known to be very phobic birds when they go over the edge. And it doesn't take that much to push them over the edge.
It's hard to make a choice. I really didn't have a choice with Fred. My friend owned a pet store which she has sort of turned into a terrarium/aquarium fish shop. They had many birds and now just board a few here and there. My Fred was a bird that wouldn't interact with people but when I met him he was 7 yrs old and took to us instantly. I spent about a month visiting him at first a few times a week, then more often than that. It was when I started worrying about whether he was still going to be there that I finally brought him home. I love him to death. We all do, but you never really know what's going to spook him or when, or when his mood will change. Sometimes he wants to be left alone too, as he has an independent streak. Whatever he wants we just go with it and not force it. We've had good luck with him this way. He doesn't bite, AT ALL, and he's non destructive. But he has lots of things to chew! He's always bobbing his head, he's a happy little guyFred sounds lovely I'm happy he has a good home I've been watching lots of birds videos and there just so meny lovely birds out there I never thought of as companion birds like Indian ring necks or parrckets I thought were just Avery birds not really good for pets
