Re: decisions decisions!

I personally would vote for a budgie, or what about a cockatiel. You are still so young and have college and life ahead of you. A green cheek is going to need you more than a budgie will. So what will happen while you are at school, or after you get married and have babies? I knew I wanted a sun conure when I was 19 but was busy with school so knew it was not fair so I had cockatiels. Than when I hit 20 I was married and by 21 had my daughter and by 23 had my son. No way would I have been able to give JJ the time she deserved with 2 little ones. I'm 28 now, done with school and now both my children are in school all day. So me and JJ have plenty of time during the day.

If a green cheek is really what you want fine but really consider where you see yourself in 5-10 years.

This is all true. My last budgie had to stay with my parents while I was away at college for 4 years. He definitely didn't get a lot of attention during those years as it seemed my parents and sister had just lost interest in birds or something.

Then after college I was moving all over the state every year chasing jobs, for the next 3 years.

Re: decisions decisions!

Thank you for your input, I have considered where I will be in the next 25 yrs, I know will be 40 by the time the bird passes. I promise I won't get this bird until I am completely sure it will have the best life now and in 25 years, thank you for your concern

TAKE YOUR PETS FOR REGULAR CHECK-UPS!
my cat died at 3 years old due to invasive kideny cancer. he was highly anemic and his kidneys and blood work were off the charts, the vet said it was the worst he's ever seen. we had to put him down that day. up untill then, he showed no sings of illness that we could recognize, however he was a ticking time bomb and only the vet could see it. we thought he was just muscular, but it was just his bulging kideneys. animals hide illness! he only showed signs the day before he died, before this, he seemed completely normal, healthy, and his usual self. his name was maxie and he was my best friend, because we thought he was healthy we didnt take him for check-ups but had we cought it earlier he might have had a chance. we learned from this, we should have paid attention, take ALL your pets for check-ups so they can be helped early on before its too late.
