I have had many pets in my life but parrots for pets are my all-time favorites. This is primarily because most parrots have long lives. Moreover, parrots are one of the best pets in the world. As pets, parrots provide a lot of entertainment and they bond with humans just as they would with their flock.
For pets, parrots are the right choice for people with small children at home and for those who have retired from active professional lives. Parrots can be a lot of fun to be with and are ideal companions of little children.
Parrots fill up your life with laughter and fun. Watch your parrots repeat your words in their own tones. It is simply hilarious! Be careful, though. See to it your parrots don’t tell your mother-in-law what you think of her!
Pet parrots can be trained to talk and perform amazing tricks. However, it is not easy to train parrots. They are intelligent, graceful and often moody birds. You can derive immense satisfaction to see your pet parrot repeating the words or the tricks they have just learned from you.
Keeping a pet parrot implies a lot of time and understanding of their minds. Having kept parrots as pets for over twenty years now, I know it is difficult for all new owners of parrots. However, it is such a fulfillment to see them playful, happy and healthy that the pains and the efforts in taking care of them are just a small price to pay.
