So, where to begin?

We must first think about the following:

How much money do I have?

The cost of a parrot varies greatly depending on its species. For example, a budgie may be purchased for under ten dollars. Cockatiels range in price from $25 to $35. The price of an Amazonian parrot and a grey parrot ranges from $300 to $400, a cockatoo from $1,000, and certain parrots can cost up to $15,000! One of the first questions you must answer is this one.

What will the bird’s space requirements be?

Larger birds, as well as certain smaller birds, are extremely active and require large cages and play areas.

Does the bird have any spare time?

This is, without a doubt, the most vital query. Birds are sociable, intelligent, and playful creatures. Will you be able to spend quality time with your pet bird? How are you going to take care of it properly? Will it be able to become a member of your household? Take into account the fact that birds have a long life span. A cockatiel, a little parrot, can live up to 20 years! Amazona or African grey parrots can live to be 50, 60 years old, and there have been reported examples of birds living to be 100 years old! Is this something you can devote yourself to? Birds from prior generations are not uncommon. If you believe you’ll get bored of a bird quickly, don’t get one.

What is the bird’s level of acoustic activity? Will there be a ruckus from the next-door neighbors?

Cockatiels and budgies are relatively calm birds. They may be cared for in a small apartment. Moluxco cockatoos can live in flats if they have neighbors who enjoy to listen to screams and crack their eardrums. The African grey parrot is one of the quietest parrots in the world. Individual differences in birds are unquestionably present. Cockatoos that don’t create a racket may exist somewhere. If such a thing existed, an innovative individual could earn a fortune out of it. Keep in mind that noise is a personal and relative experience. Only in the presence of another bird, which is considered noisy, can a bird be considered ” non-noisy “.

What kind of bird could be so “destructive”?

Do you own a piece of antique furniture that is unrivaled in its quality? Are there any books that are really rare? Keep in mind that these birds’ beaks are very strong. Although some of them are less prone to ” nibbling ” than others, nibbling is a perfectly natural behavior for them.

Is there any specific food that the parrot requires?

Lory parrots, for instance, require a unique diet. Are you in a position to supply it and do you have the resources to do so? You can go out and buy a parrot after conducting basic research and determining what type of parrot you want.
