Re: Newbie here - need your input in choosing the right parrot

My thoughts are start with the IRN, they are not as demanding as some of the bigger birds, and read everything you can get your hands on about care and feeding, discipline, etc. They are like having a perpetual 2-5 year old. Remember what ever you choose, they live a long time and will most likely outlive you so it is a lifelong commitment. You have to have a plan. They can't always be rehomed successfully; for the bird that is. Good luck try the rescues first.
