What you are NOT told!

It may be out of fear, aggression, or play but the reality of living with a parrot is that sooner or later you will get bit. Sadly this and "not enough time" are the most common reasons parrots are given up. Having a parrot is like a job with no days off and no vacation. A job you will have for the rest of your life. Please think about this before getting a bird.
