Pet Birds

Pet birds are living beings with needs, wants and feelings just like you and I. They require time, money, love, understanding and commitment. Having pet birds in your life can be a wonderful experience and very rewarding, but only if you think through your decision very carefully before you adopt, and ensure you and your family understand and accept all that will be required of you as a responsible, loving pet bird owner.
