So I've been looking for another pet. I've got my fish, horses and dogs, but I want something different. I just lost my rabbit (rip <3). And as much as I loved her, rabbits aren't really the pet for me. I was originally looking into a reptile, but soon found that the ones I like the best are difficult to care for and not what I am able to have right now. So I looked at birds. Originally I was looking at parakeets, then cockatiels. But I went to the specialty bird store near me (the guy knows what he's doing, it's him and his wife. he's had birds since he was 6 and he's gotta be 60 now). He recommended conures. There was a sweet little painted conure I was playing with, but I think I've decided on a sun conure. They're gorgeous. All his birds are hand raised from local breeders.
I'm excited, I ordered my cage today! Even though I won't be getting the bird until May, I'm doing tons of research and starting to collect things.
Anyone else have birds?
