Beardie gets my vote. I've never kept reptiles but have kept larger birds and they are LOUD and messy.

I still think they're beautiful.

I vote for the parrot. Although the doves and pigeons are cool as well.

Definitely a dove or pigeon, although they're usually happier kept in pairs unless you plan on devoting a lot of quality time with them! They are very quiet and easily bond with you as I found out over the summer working at a petting zoo. The story is actually quite epic. The short version is: I was working outside in the admissions area, which is just 4 walls and a roof with huge open garage doors that the people walk through to get into the park. All of a sudden a handsome looking pigeon flies in and perches himself directly in front of one of my co-workers on the counter. We noticed he had a tag on his foot so we knew it was someone's bird. After trying to shoo him away and failing (he absolutely wouldn't leave) I caught him in a box and got the tag number off of his foot. It turns out he lived about 15 miles away and was a registered Racing Pigeon, only 2 years old! I contacted the club he was registered to and they told me to simply let him go and he should fly back home...but no! I took him to MY apartment which is neighboring the town he was from and he flew all the way back to my work by the next morning when he greeted me there, which means he flew OVER the town he was originally from to get back to our farm! I fell in love with him and told EVERYONE at work about him when they asked why a pigeon was hanging out with me at my cash register. I named him Pidgeotto (like one of the original Pokemon, lol) and he hung around me and only me because he knew I could get him some tasty dove food! He hung around for weeks and would never make a sound until one day he was sitting there looking at me and started cooing! I immediately got him a cup of water and he GULPED it down! He knew how to get what he wanted...and I think we established quite the bond with each other. Sadly, the owners of the petting zoo had him taken to Delaware and let go when one of my coworkers went on vacation there... I was hoping he'd be able to find his way back to Massachusetts but I guess he didn't :( I would have kept him as a pet but I didn't have the proper cage and I would have liked him to live in an outdoor cage where he could come and go as he pleased.

So yeah, GET A PIGEON OR DOVE! I don't know much about reptiles but I assume they come no where near as close in sociablity compared to any bird. Parrots are my second pick out of your three choices but they are VERY noisy and can actually resort to self-mutilation (feather-plucking) if they don't get enough social interaction.

Aww, thats too bad. They always get a bad reputation as being filthy animals. Little do people know that humans are the most disgusting, disease-ridden animal on the planet lol. WE STILL LIVE WITH THEM!
