This is so far totally up in the air and the chances of it happening are not high but I thought i'd like to make this post. I am 13 I got my first tiel when I was about 5-6 and added another a few years after, both were completely wild and my dad tamed my first one but I by myself trained my second bird Storm when I was about 11. I had to do the research to learn how to tame him as my dads method was very harmful. He is now very comfortable with me doing many things like holding and petting his back giving him scratches and he flies to me often. I have owned and past owned many different animals as well but parrots are most definitely my favorite. I am the only one who takes care of my pets and pays for their needs. The tiels are kept in a large flight cage with many toys and natural wood perches. They get 2 meals a day, chop in the morning and pellets later in the day. I had to change their diet and housing once I was old enough to start doing research and some to a conclusion they did not have proper care. I am home schooled and plan to stay that way (mostly for the birds) and spend many hours home hanging out with them. I plan on doing online college so that I can provide a comfortable situation for the parrot and would like to live on at least a few acres and get more parrots when I'm older. I spend lots of time doing as much research on birds as possible and have watched many care videos on macaws, cockatoos and other large parrots. Is the idea of keeping such a large bird this young even worth thinking about? Is there a large bird that would be better for a teenager? I understand they are loud, needy, expensive, and live a long time but I am up for it. I plan on trying to get as much hands on experience with them and learning how to properly train and handle one and harness training so I can bring it places with me if needed. If a macaw works out a green wing or blue and gold seems to be the better choice (If not please tell me). I do pet sitting, babysitting, horse exercising, ranch work, and more to earn money. I plan on saving up not only for the bird, large cage, outdoor aviary, many toys, perches and more but also setting aside a few thousand dollars in case of a large vet bill. Also I have learned many great information from birdtricks and was wondering if anyone has had experience with their training courses because i'm considering getting those If I get a macaw. Is having a macaw even as a responsible teenager a good idea?
