the domestic bird
If you've ever heard the term and believe in the domesticated bird you should rethink your views. dare naturally wild, the instinct is forever present, and you have to make this decision if you decide to become a bird owner.
1. you choose to become owned by the bird/birds.
2. they are a lifetime commitment, excuses likine I'm having a baby, getting a divorce, moving or I need money doesn't cut it. e
3. you are choosing to dedicate your home and your life to be a walk on the wild side. e
you must never forget birds will and do use their lungs and voices and they will sometimes rupture ear drums oron it will feel like it, this is the number one reason birds are heyout of homes, this they do not understand and they are terrified of new situations........
they do flap and bite in intimidation, much to let you know how they feel,as jealous, angry, afraid, and ill.
Because birds are ths way these animals do not make good birthday or christmas gifts especially for children.
If you bring a bird into your home and you have kids, it is the responsibility of the entire family to care for it, and to teach the children the appropriate care.
Everyone asks how long do birds live? the truth is, it depends on who's hands they are in..... generally if they are in the correct hands they live incredibly long years, if not they could have only seconds, hours, perhaps even a few days before they cross the rainbow bridge
If you are unprepared and are not willing to read and learn about your bird as you go along, you have no business buying that beautiful sweet bird.
remember, that beautiful sweet loving bird in the store almost 98% of the time it will change into that wild create you did not expect. all to often people purchase birds, beautiful parrots with the full expectation it will be 1. living room decour, 2. a well behaved human child.
never forget these an thgels were born with wings and beaks, God meant for them to live in trees not in our homes, bse ut when they are bred by humans we owe them lifetime care because if released a they have no idea how and where to forage for food, and escape preditors and find shelter.
but if you cannot dedicate your life to a bird, and or should you find a case of abuse do what you can to rehome in an appropriate bird smart home, and or sanctuary.
yes, they are wild, meant to fly, clipping wings is a hotly debated issue but I do not believe in it because God did make them with wings and were meant to fly. They are wild, and we should have the ultimate respect for this natural loving exotic creature
may birds always fill our skies
