Re: Is getting a GCC good for me? (College Student)

Welcome Mitch. I do believe that CallumConure, being a College Student such as yourself, may have sealed your decision to hold off on your GCC for now. Thank you for 'getting advice' and doing research before taking this big step. All the best with your studies and career.

Re: Is getting a GCC good for me? (College Student)

Mitch, I don't agree with much that has been written here. I think you know your roommates. I think it would work out if you wanted it to happen. But I think the budget issue is huge as I never met a college student that was flush with surplus cash.

I think the main reason you should hold off is that in a few years you will no longer be in college (unless you are going down a path to get a doctorate) and you will start working. That will be the real challenge. You might have a job that requires you to travel a lot or a job that works long hours. If so, then taking care of a conure becomes difficult. Or maybe you will be able to work at home and the conure will be easier. Either way, college is usually a temporary thing and I think it would be best to graduate, land a job, then decide if a conure is a good fit.

I definitely think you will enjoy the company of a conure much more than a budgie.They have so much character but they do need your attention.
