Re: Trying to find the right bird for me

Also I'd like to add on, some things to consider is how long the species will live. I'm unsure what kind of school you're enrolled to, but if you potentially go to college, have roommates in the future, or start a job, this bird will have a much harder time to adapt to these changes. Of course, again each bird is different but it's something to consider since some of these species live up to 70 yrs old or more.

7 hrs away every day is a very long time and depending on some birds, they might not be able to handle it. Make sure they have lots of toys to destroy, shred, play with, and consider leaving the radio or some cartoons on while you're away.
