Talking The cost of having a bird

I have a fantastic opportunity to go to St. Lucia in March for 10 days w/my best friend on vacation. The total cost would be right around $600. However, I find myself not wanting to go b/c I'd rather spend that money on my bird. New toys, new playstands, new perches, etc.

Giving up 10 days of laying in a hammock on the beach sipping pina colada's for bird toys.

Anyone else ever experience a "problem" like this?

Re: The cost of having a bird

I'm the exact same way, I could use some new clothes but I'd rather see the babies destorying a toy and tossing it all over the floor.

It's payday today so I have a trip planned to the parrot store a little drive away from where I live. I spent $200 last time on Popsicle a small parrot with small toys. Now I have Pepsi Gonna cost me a fortune. They have better stuff then I do and the eat better too.

Re: The cost of having a bird

Where is this St.Lucia? If its not in SA then you can spend all your money on the bird, but if its in SA then i wouldnt miss it for the world. Dont know if USA or UK or others also have a St.Lucia?

Re: The cost of having a bird

St. Lucia is a small island in the Caribbean. Just Northwest of the Bahamas. A friend of mine goes to school there so we were thinking about going for a visit.
