I am grateful I found this site and also for the candid advise all of you have been willing to share. Are there any larger breed parrots in terms of Amazons, Greys etc that any of you would recommend or we should consider? My family loves animals and is able to provide the proper space (large cage or small aviary) and other resources (toys etc) for a large or medium sized parrot. As I recently researched many different parrots I have been provided many of the same responses I have found here in terms other large breed parrots temperament, and other potential problems. Many people have encouraged us to steer clear of making such a commitment. We are home most of the time (other than professional commitments) and enjoy the pets we have quite a bit.
Finally, can what are the pros and cons of adopting a parrot ?
