First thing first, this is my first time want to learn and maybe keeping the parrot as a pet. So many things that I need to consider if I want to keep it. My friend owned the parrot for like the rest of her life and the parrot still strong and entertaining. I feel like the parrot can be considered as lifetime pet/partner if keeping it the right way. Sorry if my English not good. Thanks

Re: Newbie just checked in

Welcome! Your English is just fine . There are lots of sub forums where you can learn about the different parrot species. Parrots are definitely a lifetime commitment, and they involve lots of lifestyle changes for us humans that want to live with them. Are you interested in a specific type of parrot, or just learning in general?

Re: Newbie just checked in

Yep, there are many breed of parrot, I don't make any final decision yet. Since lately my life is a bit change, what I mean busy with working days and I think I will not have a proper time at home. Until I re-schedule my working life then it is time to study more about the parrot. I'm thinking about the Cockatiels when the right time comes.

Re: Newbie just checked in

Good to consider your available time before adopting a bird. You almost cannot go wrong with a cockatiel, extraordinarily popular and adaptable to captivity.

Re: Newbie just checked in

I can witness that a parrot can be a lifelong relationship. I got mine when I was in college, and I'm now retired.

Good for you for joining and reaching out!
