My name is Whitney Justice. I am 19 and a full-time college
student. I am an animal lover but I can't own dogs at my
apartment, so I am looking to buy a bird. I have initially
been wanting an African Grey, but the more I research, the
more I learn how many different species of birds there are.
I love the idea of having a bird to talk and mimic and is
an aspect I would love to have in my bird. The only thing
that bothers me is the idea of having a bird bite me.
African Greys have rather large beaks and seem to be
strong. If they was to bite, they could take a chunk out.
But I also know their behavior is determined on how it's
raised and hopefully mine wouldn't be anything less that
happy, friendly and loving. I travel home every weeken so
my bord would be riding shotgun in its cage. I am also
concerned about the bathroom usage of birds while they're
out of their cage. I would like to invest in a bird that I
could keep out of its cage a lot to enjoy its time around
my apartment with me and my roommate who also shares the
love for animals as I do. I would really like one of a
unique, beautiful color. I live in southern West Virginia
so bird breeders are few and far between. Where could I
purchase one and I want to make sure it's legal in my
state. Could you help me with my questions of put me in
contact with someone who could? Thanks!
