I'm a total newbie and have joined to gather up all the information. I have no parrots and can't get one(s) until I'm 18 because my mom is allergic to birds. Ill be 14 in 2 months so it will be about 4 years lol. I want to get a umbrella cockatoo. I absolutely love how they look, that they can learn to talk, and have heard there quite sassy. I also like cockatiels, I've Sean them sing different song tunes, I especially think its adorable when they sing the Adams family song lol. In 4 years I will get them from a rescue in the twin cities or something. But I don't know anything about birds, I will be reading forums to gather up information lol. I have already decided to build a tiny house as I don't want to pay rent, so I will be able to custom make my house to sute the birds.
