I was going to add something else but my cockatoos stepped on my keyboard and messed me up. Cockatoos and feathery little teddy bears.....you do not want to get one unless you can devote a lot of time to it. They are more affectionate than parrots, in my biased opinion. If I'm gonna spend that much money on a bird then by golly I want something that adores me. I've never been super into finches, parakeets etc....goldfish with wings. I just don't think they have the personality of the cockatoos and cockatiels
Bear in mind that birds, like dogs...are not solitary by nature. A dog has it's pack...a bird has it's flock. No matter what bird you get, it will be miserable if you stick it in a cage and don't spend time with it.
My furs are not in storage, nor draped across the bed. They're peering out the kennel door just waiting to be fed.
