trade for all exotic birds and exotic animals was banned
around the early 1990's, I believe it was banned around 1992
though. It's 2011 now so that bird you got may be illegal, I
suggest you go to your local government and ask them what to
do. Certain states have different laws, for instance, I need
to have a permit to own a bird because I live in NJ.
