Hee hee, I too thought the topic of this page was funny. I would like to give a big huge thank you to Jerry for mytoos.com , truly a wonderful site and provided all the information I needed straight out! smile About a year ago I had been greatly wanting a cockatoo but untill I had read mytoos.com I had changed my mind. I'm at school from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm during week days, I'm 16 and in High School, tenth grade. So having a cockatoo alone for that many hours , just wouldn't be fair to the bird. So I decided to look into other types of parrots, and me, being the bird lover I am I often visited the pet store after school to look at the birds or play with them (if allowed) And well one day a green and grey parrot in a large glass aqaurium happened to catch my eye. It was a Quaker parakeet, he was in there with two cockatiels. I asked the pet shop owner if I could see the parakeet and he allowed me to do so. I reached in slowly for the parrot, expecting him to bite me , but to my suprise he didn't and just huddled in the corner of the cage. I picked him up and he sat in my hand nicely and snuggled up. I instantly fell in love. He was about five months old and this was last year in December. I then Decided i'd buy him and worked out a deal with the pet store owner, he said he'd put the bird on hold for me for about a week or so, I went to the pet store every single day to visit my bird and hold him untill I had enough money to buy him, he cost $350.99 not including the tax or all the food and toys i'd have to buy him. I already had a large parrot cage given to me from my dad which I scrubbed and disinfected. Come christmas time I had been given a very genorous amount of money and I took my new feathered friend home the day after christmas. For the first week or so he hated to come out of his cage and was afraid to try new foods, such as fresh veggies and vegatables. But well time passed since then and now he'll only eat new foods after he's seen me eat it first, or he'll just try and eat whatever i'm eating. In the morning's cael sits on my shoulder as I get rea for school, we eat breakfast together (of course he has his own birdy breakfast , fruits, veggies and pellets mixed together, he loves it) and then I put him back into his cage and I'll change his toys (I rotate his toys so he doesn't get bored with the same ones over and over while I'm at school). When I get home from school I immediatly go to let cael out, and he always knows when i'm coming home because he'll sit at his cage door waiting for me. Then i'll take him out and we'll have our play time together, and eat supper at about 6:00. He lets me know when he wants to go back into his cage to play with his toys or eat some food or take a nap and such, so he's usually out with me all the time when i'm home, unless of course he wants to go into his cage n.n. He says a few words now and only talks to me lol, he's not too fond of my little brother, but he's never bitten anyone in my family. Yep he's my little feather baby and I love him so much smile He's been sitting on my shoulder whistling to me the entire time I type this out lol

Hi Lindsey: Welcome to the board. You have quite the flock. I trust that your parents assist you financially with your flock, correct?
It is important that all of you express the demands that your "babies" place on you and your time. My concern is that other teens who may be considering being owned by a Too or other may get lulled into a false sense of bird caring.
Teens who have the dedication and home time to care for their friends as well as the maturity such as the teens I mentioned earlier should take it upon themselves to inform the others.
The responsibility that you have decided to undertake is by no means easy and it should be expressed as such.
Don't get me wrong. You should express your happiness and love and all that good stuff but let it be known that there is a big price to pay for all of that. wink

My goodness, parrotgurl! Quite the group you have, and at 13! I'd love to have a few more birds, but I think if I got my U2 at 11 years old I wouldnt've lived to see 13....good job! I'm 14, by the way. Right now i've just got my U2, and may be getting one or two smaller birds soon(max size, an amazon). I look foward to talking with you more. smile

I would like to stick up for all the teens who are responsible. We are not all out there parting it up and doing all the itiotic things that some teens do. I am 17 years old 18 in May and I have never went a day in my life with out having a pet. My first pet that was mine and not the families was Natalie the hampster who I recevied on my fifth birthday. Natalie was followed by 6 more hampsters, 4 rats, lots of fish, 3 cockatiels, a cat, and a rescue red eared slider turtle, who I am happy to say is living it up in a friends step fathers pond with two other turtles. I now own a cockatoo, another parrot, my cat, and a fish tank. I pay for everything for these pets exept for the cat. encluding vet bills, yes if I do not have the money for everything at the time my mother kindly loans it to me, but the money is always returned to her. I am home most everyday, I work with my mother in her office and because I am a temp I only have to go in when I want to and I can also bring work to do at home, I make 9 dollars an hour and in my opinion that is a lot for a teen to make. I am studing for my ged, and I will soon be starting college, however I will not be in a dorm and so my little family will be with me. I also have a boyfriend who I have been with for 16 months and that in no interferes with my time with my birds. We can all snuggle! As for any other parents decision on wheather or not to allow there children to get a pet all depends on each childs responsibility and maturity level. If your child is irresponsible the DUH do not let them get one, however we are not all that way.
****Here is a good test, is your child willing to pay for the bird or would they rather buy clothes and shoes?? If they will pay hundreds of dollors for a bird odds are they will take care of it***

Mandy&Cael... welcome to the board! smile I'm glad you like it here and hope you'll learn something.

Now... to Zoe:

Zoe... I know what you're saying, but trust me, you cannot properly care for a cockatoo through the child-teen-and college years. Its that simple.
Notice I said " Properly ".

Unless you're schooling-dating-working-and taking college courses in your home, it cant be done.
Where is this cockatoo and cat kept?

lol, that is so kewl parrutgurl! You rock! I'm 18 and have a U2. He's just about the smartest bird in the world and so smart! Right now I don't think I could take another bird. In the future though, I plan on getting another U2 to keep Angel company, but I'm afraid he won't love me anymore...?

I think taking care of all those birds at 13 is great. Tell me, how do you manage to play with all those birds? Are they all good-tempered, not jealous of anyone?

XOXOXOXO

U2Angel,well 2 of the birds are my moms so i dont hold them 2 at all she does the one bird of hers bites ya if anyone trys to pet her except my mom and the other one of her birds just is scared to step up on your hand.One of my birds doesnt like to be held so i just let her sit on her cage thats the sun conure.The eclectus and african grey I usually hold them and play with them an hour each night(the african grey is nippy so its not easy trying to hold her and play with her!)My moluccan cockatoo sometimes screams when I hold one of the other birds but she stops after maybe 5 minutes the others dont really care its just moluccan cockatoo(she is SOOOOOOO spoiled and screams usually as soon as I go in the room!)So its hard work trying to care for everyone but its worth every bit of it! smile

Just a thought, and not trying to be rude....

Since you're homeschooled now, you have time for your birds...what happens once you have to go out for college/university?
