Hello! My name is Andrew and I’m interested in becoming a parent of a parrot. I met a young green cheeked Conor in Petco today and fell in love. I have 3 dogs and a chameleon, all of whom I love and give the best life possible. Rather than impulse buy an intelligent bird from a chain pet store, I am joining the forum and asking for advice on this hobby. And I hesitate to say hobby because these are living beings, not a wooden ship or rc plane. I want to know what you suggest I do to properly start down this path. Adopt an older parrot in need? I have plenty of room in my home and can place a large cage in my office. I work from home, as does my wife so we can devote a large part of our day to socializing. Thank you!
