I know when I'm getting a parrot... I think!

That's right, guys! After a long, drawn out weekend which was full of negotiation, I believe I have agreed on something with my parents. My dad expressed that his main concern with getting a parrot now would be that I have my GCSEs in May, and he believes that a bird would mean I have less study time, which I understood. So, as a solution... My parents have agreed that, if my exam results come back good in August, I can have anything I would like, even a bird- but if I get a bird, that's the only present due to the prices involved. So, this has motivated me to work harder so that I can get the results I need. I'm really, really excited. We're looking for reputable breeders and rescues nearby.



(I wrote them an essay on everything they needed to know about Greys. Even the parts that might turn them off a bit, such as cost and etc. But, they appreciated my honesty.)

Re: I know when I'm getting a parrot... I think!

You are going to be really surprised just how much time it takes to care for the second Parrot.

Your efforts show that you have the interest to take on this effort.

It is so important to remember that you are undertaking this effort for the next fifty, plus years.

Also, remember that you want the Parrot to choose you!!!

Re: I know when I'm getting a parrot... I think!

Sounds like a win/win from every perspective!

Well now that that is settled, perhaps you can turn your negotiating skills to solving the Brexit dilemma for all parties!

Re: I know when I'm getting a parrot... I think!

Is the African grey the bird you have decided on?

African Greys are amazingly smart birds and take more than average amount of care.
Amazons are a great birds also. The may not demonstrate there intelligence but they tend to have less problems down the road.

The "parrot chooses the owner" point was one of the first I raised to my parents.
