I want one!


It's never too early to get a head-start on my crazy-old-bird-lady lifestyle, eh? Eh?

... except for the fact that there's no way in hell I could afford one of those at this point in my life o.o But omfg, they're so beautiful, and they sound like such awesome bird-things.

They would also probably eat Zoot alive >> Except he is very, very angry and could maybe hold his own.

Okay anyway. This is homework, really.

god aren't they beautiful?

The ONE bad thing I've heard is that they tend to be moody and neurotic. People like them for their plumage more than for their personalities. Now, I met one that was quite charming and sweet, so my personal experience ( was not bad. But my manager at Petsmart would not order any because they were so difficult.

Also would be hard with zoot because they are territorial... ZOOT FOR LIFE!

Really? o.O Dude.

Well, okay. I heard the females are a little wacko but the males are not so crazy. Your experience of one is much better than my experience of .. pictures ...

Amber and I met a very cute one in a petstore. Ever since then I've wanted one. It was a female and she was so gorgeous and sweet. But yeah, they're probably mostly crazy.

i think paul maneval has one. or someone closely associated with bebhinn (or maybe bebhinn herself?)

I think he (and she) had a pionus.. but.. Paul's flew away (because he's awesome like that). I think Bebhinn still has one though (or maybe it's her boyfriend's?)

Those were really sweet birds too though :x I think I just love them all.

i see- i do recall something about paul's parrot being unhappy. i swear she brought up the eclectus species at some point, though i may be mixing memories

i wish i thought that i could ever have the time to have birds. particularly with the more intelligent parrots, it feels like it must be even more like having children than having a dog is... and after comparison with a child-ed co-worker, apparently care of a young child really is much like care of a dog. unfortunately, you are not supposed to crate or cage children, so i will never have them; a bird is more likely... maybe something like a flock of finches who don't care about me and won't get depressed when i leave for the weekend.
