Hey!!! I am having probably the hardest time of my life trying to decide what bird i want to have for the rest of my life to love with my other one. I started out with a cockatiel when i was in fourth grade and she was darling!!! I still have her and i am used to all the dust the tiel's have and produce! I am thinking about going to a bigger bird but, cant decide what breed. I was stuck on Cockatoos(then what breed), The African Grey Timneh so my whole entire family would be able to handle it and either or a smaller breed of Macaw or the Pineapple Green Cheek Conure which i know is still not the biggest bird ever. I have my own job, i volunteer/visit a bird rescue and have meant a lot of there birds. I am completely comfortable with bigger birds and there beaks. I am not scared of the bigger birds and there beaks but i respect them. I really am just worried that because i have a smaller bird i wont be able to get another one. I would love to know what you think of the Too's and the other birds to help me figure out what bird is best for me! Possibly what breeder would you reccomend considering i live in the Midwest?
Thank you so very much!!!!
If you can please email me at peanut1499@gmail.com for more info if you WANT!!! thanks!!!

Everyone is different. Consider your lifestyle as well. My favorite is the Rose Breasted Cockatoo. They are hilarious, do summersaults, great talkers and can be very loving. However when younger, they can be prone to being frightened and become paranoid or withdrawn. Never clamp your hands around their body or wings and hold them down when you pick them up. It is very scary.
I have loved this species since I first encountered them.
