Keeping birds as exotic pets is quite different to keeping a mammal, a reptile or an amphibian. Many are quite demanding and take up a lot of room, while some are noisy enough to make them unsuitable for flats or apartments. Of course, there are always exceptions, so you’ll always be find an exotic bird that suits you perfectly.
Some of the most popular pet birds are lovebirds, macaws, cockatoos, finches and parrots. They can all make wonderful pets, but some of them will require a huge investment of time and effort, not to mention a long term commitment – African Grey Parrots can live for 70 years!. Few bird owners would deny that they can be challenging and sometimes hard work, but even fewer would consider keeping birds to be a bad decision or a waste of time.
If you’ve done your research and spent a while thinking about it, and you still want to have a pet bird, then go ahead and buy one. The experience will be incredibly rewarding, and one day you might even be able to have a conversation with your new pet parrot!
