    trade for all exotic birds and exotic animals was banned
    around the early 1990's, I believe it was banned around 1992
    though. It's 2011 now so that bird you got may be illegal, I
    suggest you go to your local government and ask them what to
    do. Certain states have different laws, for instance, I need
    to have a permit to own a bird because I live in NJ.
