March is adorable and id do anything for him. this is true. but besides how cute he is, this is only half of it! Birds are loud. Even for his tiny size, you can hear him screaming across the house. Birds are also extremely smart. while this is a good thing, it can also be annoying. Theyll figure out ways to trick you and do things they arent supposed to. they’ll chew your things- important documents, furniture, even you. theyre messy- i sweep 3 times a day with just one cockatiel. They are like toddlers. they will have days where they scream and scream and bite and hiss and wont listen to anything you say. You can’t just leave them in their cage, expect them to be quiet when you want them to, then take them out and have them sing a song perfectly. you need to spend a lot of time with them.
I’m not trying to discourage anyone from getting a bird- i just am saying that you have to know what to expect. yes birds are cute, but don’t go out and get one because you see a cute video online. someone worked with that bird for hours teaching it that song or trick. the video is just capturing a small moment in time. adopt a feathered friend. they make great companions as long as you have the time and patience to work with them.
