      They make a bleeding noise, a bleeding mess and they bite bleeding sore. Other than that, they make wonderful companions... My personal experience was with an African Grey when I lived in South Africa and he was wonderful when he wasn't doing any of the above - he didn't sleep much!

      The problems come when you want to go on holiday, since they require attention (a lot), need stimulation (a lot) or else they can be quite destructive...

      Get a pet snail, instead...low maintenance, easily replaced, no cage required, portable home built-in.

      Parrots?

      For other uses of the word parrot, see Parrot (disambiguation).
      ?Parrots and Cockatoos


      Fischer's Lovebird after a bath
      Scientific classification
      Kingdom: Animalia

      Phylum: Chordata

      Class: Aves

      Order: Psittaciformes
      Wagler, 1830

      Families
      Cacatuidae
      Psittacidae

      Parrots or Psittacines (order Psittaciformes) includes about 353 species of bird which are generally grouped into two families: the Cacatuidae or cockatoos, and the Psittacidae or true parrots. The term parrot is generally used for both the entire order as well as for the Psittacidae alone.

      All members of the order have a characteristic curved beak shape with the upper mandible having slight mobility in the joint with the skull and a generally erect stance. All parrots are zygodactyl, having the four toes on each foot placed two at the front and two back.

      Parrots can be found in most of the warm parts of the world, including India, southeast Asia and west Africa, with one species – now extinct – in the United States (the Carolina Parakeet). By far the greatest number of parrot species, however, come from Australasia, South America and Central America.

      ive allways wanted a parrot, now the kids are a lot older i think now is the perfect time for one, as for the noise it noisey anyway with 6 kids and 2 washing machines so i dont think there be much difference in increased noise level and would also make a good hobby teaching it tricks etc
