Parrots can make great pets, but they also have very exacting needs. As such, it’s important to make sure you’ve given it proper thought and are prepared to meet the commitments they require. As they’re very intelligent and social birds, they need to be interacted with regularly and let our of their cages frequently.
They’re also big and need very large cages that need to be kept clean. As they’re exotic birds that are used to warmer climates, they need to be kept in comfortable temperatures and given very specific foods.
All that adds up and pet parrots can work out being pretty expensive, in both time and money. That being said, if you’re willing to put in the time and money, they can make great, lifelong family pets.
If that sounds like too much work, you could always consider parakeets as pets too. These are basically small parrots that are a little more affordable and less demanding. Here’s some more information about parakeets from Bird Cages Now.
