You have a total grasp on what your bird food costs you already. As far as adding
another newbie into your family and the costs, I don't think that you will even
notice that much of a difference if you keep making alot of their food for them.
I think choosing a Goffin is a great choice. They are so sweet and loveable, but
mind you they are still a cockatoo. I would suggest rescuing one from a local rescue
if there is one near you. And preferrably an older one at that. It seems that older
ones have been through alot of the mishaps in their lives and hopefully, HOPEFULLY,
would prove to be a muich better bird for you rather than one from an infant and
raising it. Just my opinion of course. But you have read enough to know the quirks.
Good luck in your endeavors.
