You are so sweet!
Purchasing a pet, especially a bird is a job for the whole
family. A large cage must be purchased, the location of the
cage must be considered, toys, proper food, etc. If this is
a first bird the entire family must educate themselves on
proper care, needs and training of the bird.
Are you sure you dad wants to care for a bird for the next
30+ years? If so your dad should be involved in choosing
his beloved pet. All birds have different personalities and
you want to be certain your dad and his forever pet will
like each other. Please let you dad know and let him be
part of such an important addition to your family. He will
love you all the more for your consideration and respect for
his wishes and the future welfare of his baby bird.
God Bless & good luck
