Living with parrots
Parrots are engaging and fascinating
creatures. Their personalities and needs differ
based on their species, ages, and sexes.
Before you bring home a parrot, we
urge you to research their unique requirements and make
an informed decision.
Parrots are messy.
Parrots require a great deal of time and
attention or they may suffer from behavioral problems.
Housing, feeding and vet care are more
expensive than for other pets.
Parrots can live for decades.
Make sure you understand the
commitment before you decide to bring home a parrot!
So why parrots?
A lot of people ask us why have
parrots as companions and not dogs or cats or fish or
any other pet?

companion animal we have ever lived with.
They offer friendship and

They are smart, adaptable, funny, and
They are always surprising you, even
after years of what you think is consistent behavior.
They keep you on your toes.
Above all, they force you to live
in the moment each and every day and enjoy each
precious moment of life!
