I have been reading everything you have written. I said I was done
posting. Which I am,Yo can only say something so many times.
Many people have brought up the fact the fact that I said we have
nice rescue not to fair from us.The reason I haven't even tried to
sdopt from them is because they only adopt with in a hour from
them.I live more then an hour away from them.
As for the meds. To me a lot of money for meds is something thats
going to cost well over 50 a month and it's something they will have
to be on the rest of their lifes.I spend about that on my horse's
meds.He has C.O.P.D/heaves and without that he would be dead.So I'm
not cheap on the meds price,But I tried to be honest by saying there
is a line at where I can't keep a bird.
Lastly I have done my research I know birds are not easy pets to
keep.They are also not cheap to keep.They are like having a toddler
for 50 years.I've lost count of the books I have read,The sites I
have been too. I think I know enough about birds to know what I
would be getting into.I know you don't really know untill you own
one.But everyone had to start out with their first large parrot.I
think I got a better start then most by really reading up on them to
know what I'm getting into.
I also know most 2nd hand birds come with a lot of problems which is
why their first owners are giving them up.I'm willing to work though
a bird's problems. If I find something I can't work though I will
I think thats all I have to say. I'm sure someone will rip into this
message too. I want to thank all of people who really tried to help
me out.And thank you to the person that stood up for me. That was
really nice of you.
If you still think I have no clue about parrots.Then be nice and try
to help me out. Tell me about some books or sites you really think I
should read before getting a bird. Thats what I would do for someone
wanting to get into horses.I do that all the time for people who are
wanting to breed horses.I help them do research most of the time
with my help they understand it's easier,cheaper,and safer to buy a
foal(I don't breed either).I wish someone took the time to help me
