Thanks for the information.
I must also say that if you cannot afford to purchase a pet,
then you cannot afford to keep one. I'm not being mean, I'm
being realistic. Pets are very expensive to maintain. Also,
nothing is for free. If you spent your life savings on these
imaginary birds then your children will now go without.
People please don't just jump at a "for free sign". Please
tally up all the lifetime costs or potential costs of your
desired pet then decide if you can afford or not.
If you cannot afford AVIAN vet fees for regular check ups or
emergencies then you should never own a bird.
