Been thinking.

I need some input from you guys! My dad is coming to visit soon, and I'm planning to coax him to taking me to Petsmart.

So, my question is, should I get a beardie or a Bird?

I've been doing research on both, and I really like both, but I can only get one.

What kind of bird? I would never own one bigger than a cockatiel.

Birds need A LOT OF YOUR TIME.

They need training and cleaning and bathing and exercise.

I would base it off of what you think you have more time/ more space/ more money for.

Im sure there are probably forums out there for beardies and birds, maybe get more of an idea of what owning them is like straight from owners.

If you're planning in getting one of these at petsmart, please do more research. I wouldn't buy either of these animals there. :/
Also, I think at least, a big difference is a reptile won't be mad if there's a day you can't play with him. Poor bird will however.

Good point.
Maybe you could find one on craigslist or at an animal shelter.

I like both but I would say a beardie, they are calmer and quieter and don't need as much attention :)

II had TWO parakeets and they are so social and AMZING!!!

BOTH animals need LOTS of care though...but the birds are worth it! You can teach them to talk, but they must be in pairs since they are so social

I was young and didnt relise the evils of major pet store chains, so i got them at Petsmart. Thy were fairly healthy, one green and one blue.

They are prone to tumors. Mine got one after a head injury and passed away from it years later. They can live for 10-15 yrs, and can eat fresh fruits and veggies(MODERATION!) and bird seed. They should be bathed weekly i believe.
