Do you worry about biting more with the larger birds? That is my biggest fear about them.. I love the vidoes of all the bigger birds on here but the thought of that BIG beak scares me to death! LOL Can you train larger birds to do more things than parakeets? I hope you don't mind me asking these questions!

BTW- You have beautiful birds!! smile Dave looks like he is always curious! SO CUTE!! smile


Thanks 3budgies for my AWESOME AVATAR!! \:\)

I remember you. I'm up to 14 parakeets had 15 but one just passed away. We also just got a cockatiel who is 1 1/2 years old and says pretty bird whistles and is hand trained. In fact would rather sit on my shoulder all day than be in his cage. Some of the parakeets are English budgies. We have built quite a few cages for the parakeet the last one is 6ft by 2ft by 3ft inside measurements its on legs and wheels so is a little over 5ft tall. Also built 3 nesting cages but none nesting yet and I'm not pushing the issue. If they nest they nest but I don't care if they don't just wanted to be safe and not find eggs on bottom of cage.
Anyway great to see you back. I guess I don't post as often as I use to either have been pretty busy.

Bigger birds as in Macaws and Eclectus can definately be intimidating and they could definately hurt you pretty bad if they wanted to. If you spend plenty of time with your bird and properly train it not to bite, there's usually very little danger to the pet owner. They will definately nip when they get excited and stuff but Dave and Floyd haven't broken my skin. In Dave's case (and this is true of a LOT of parrots) strangers are definately at risk, lol.

Most of the larger species are going to be quite a bit more intelligent than a parakeet and you can train them to do all kinds of things, though the intelligence factor has a tendency to add to behavioral problems due to under-stimulation.

Thank you for the compliments smile Dave IS terribly curious and it gets him in trouble haha.

Ahh yes, I've heard that they are illegal in some states. I've also heard that the laws are kinda BS because the Quakers don't truely pose any threat to their ecosystems. I guess there are arguments to go both ways.

I would definately do my research before getting a Grey. They're horribly intelligent and can live to be over 70 years old! You'll be lucky to outlive it and that means you have to be ready and willing to provide for it for your entire life or deal with the heartbreak of selling or giving away your baby. Just a thought...if you're ready for the commitment though, they are absolutely amazing smile
