    Yes to the original poster do your research and you will find that
    All birds grow up and CAN become screamers,biters,pluckers NOT just
    COCKATOO'S. There's more nerotic little birds out there but people
    just tend to keep them caged and not deal with them (easier then a
    larger bird) where you feel obligated to take it out and try to
    controll it. I say for someone with no experience with birds period
    go get yourself a small bird first (a baby). These so called rescue
    (AKA) hoarders will pawn anything on to any sucker with$$$$.
