Living with a Parrot


Parrots may be domestically bred, but are not domesticated. They come from various countries with a wide array of beautiful colors and sizes. Some are endangered. Some never make good house pets.  


Parrots are very messy.


They can be very loud and abnoxious at times. Some never learn to speak.

Some can be very territorial. They have been known to lunge out and bite very hard causing you to bleed and leave your fingers and hands sore for days.


Parrots are high maintenance and don't care about money. They will chew through your window sills, anitque furniture, crown molding in a matter of minutes. They will destroy your carpet. Even the most intelligent species of parrots can be like having a toddler in the house.  


Parrots are long term commitments. The average human life span is approximately 75 years of age. Larger parrots can live to be around 100 years old. So, who will care for your parrot if you are not able to?


Before you consider sharing your home with a parrot, take the time to learn about parrots. Research what species fits your lifestyle and ask yourself if you can commit a lifetime to carring for such a magnificent creature. Perhaps then save a life by adopting a parrot from a sanctuary.
