perhaps you guys need to get out and experience bird keeping by people who have been keeping birds way longer than any of us, through tradition.
yes birds are delicate, yes they require attention. But is it difficult? i'd vote no. just effort and love is all it takes.
you guys are scaring this guy out of creating a relationship of a lifetime.

I'm 29 and working full-time! When I was 13 I got a conure and it was the worst decision ever. After 4 years he began to get neglected and was rehomed. If I had found this forum and heard the advice here, I would have waited and been able to spare my Jenday the sub-par care I had given him. We aren't 'sensitive', we all have had past experiences with this topic and most students end up getting too busy and rehoming their birds. We're trying to prevent a situation like that. We just care a lot about the birds!
