Hopefully heís taming them, not just feeding them, although I canít imagine how. I guess if not, that will give you one more thing to do with your new baby.

Re: Overthinking

Wow 40 baby Parrots ready to hatch. Seems magical in a way but I cant imagine looking after that many even for a pro. You must be so excited though x

Re: Overthinking

Lord, lord, lord. These are normal thoughts. I think even the parents of new humans wonder if they are up for it while on the way to the hospital. It's good that you have them, because it's the last chance to rethink. I say ... what is the quality of the voice that worries? There is a kind of negative voice, the you-can't-do-that-who-do-you-think-you-are negative voice that infects so many of us. Then there is the quiet voice that whispers the truth to you, and never gets any louder. That's the voice that pops up right before you send an angry email, that says "are you sure you want to do this?" and is easier to ignore than the you-idiot voice. For some reason it's easier to hear another person's criticism than our own wise advice.

I don't know you. I only see what you write here. And from what I see here, you will be a good parront. You will love your bird, you will be patient with your bird, you will check in here with the status of your bird (and pictures! don't forget the pictures!) and you will care for it. If a bird has to go somewhere, it could do worse.

Parrots need a lot of sleep. So they can sleep while you are out living the life of Riley. And you can get or make a carrier, and take your bird out and about. You will make it work. It's better if you don't hover over them 24/7, because they might not always have that, and they need to learn to be independent. You aren't going to be gone all that much. It will be OK.

Re: Overthinking

I believe you want another bird and I believe youíll do what it takes to make both of you happy & healthy. You will figure it out, prioritize and make it work. Especially after how excited you were when you found the blue-throat breeder near you.
Itís good that youíre thoroughly thinking this through. But, Iím surprised b/c of all the time and effort youíve already put into this.
Take a deep breath, you still have a lot of time, theyíre only just hatching.

Iím sure youíll make the right decision.
Good Luck & keep us posted.

Re: Overthinking

So let’s imagine the Breeder calls you today and tells you he will not have a bird for you. What is your first emotion? If it’s relief then you aren’t ready, but I’m guessing you would feel horrible. The fact that you're concerned about spending time with your bird tells me you will do what it takes to take care of him. I have indoor birds but I also have many outdoor birds and every now and then I feel panic when I think of the responsibilities. Usually when I feel stress from another source. I then imagine getting rid of them and all the time I’d have and how life would just be boring and I realize they are worth the commitment. When I don’t feel that way will be the time to find them new homes. Try to enjoy your wait!

Re: Overthinking

See unfortunately I lack the... faculties shall we say, to ask myself those questions and have an answer. Both a blessing and a curse. Though I probably would be disappointed. Just gonna have a chat with friends see what they think and then I'll have to ask the Landlord about it, though I'm optimistic they'd be okay with it

Overthinking

I think youíll be fine. In my experience, someone who questions their readiness is far more likely than to be ready the person who doesnít. It just means youíre aware of the commitment. That little baby is waiting for you to be its Daddy!

Give yourself more credit... your concern and post shows maturity and introspection. Your participation here is indeed "asking" the proper questions and you can read/re-read the thread for guidance.

You can also do this the old-fashioned way: Take a piece of paper, divide vertically in half. On the left side, write the benefits and desires of adopting this conure; on the right half list the disadvantages and inconveniences. One side is bound to have more content, something to read and compare. No guarantee the half with more writing is going to win, it is the overall message that is important!
