Re: Choosing the right parrot

Since the bird's personality seems so important to you, consider adopting an adult instead of buying a young bird. Young birds can change personality drastically when the reach puberty - some become almost vicious, biting and attacking and screaming. With an older bird, the personality is more fixed. You will know if they are calm, intelligent, playful, talkative, whatever - all things which are unpredictable in a young bird. Plus, these big macaws wind up in rescues all the time or in need of new homes, because the first owner didn't know what they were committing to, or maybe the first owner became ill ... etc. ...
