Should I and what kind of bird should I get?
I want to adopt a bird, but do not know if my home is the right environment, and if the bird will be happy. I know it takes a lot of time to handle and take care of these creatures, but my main living space is in a basement. I am worried that it may be too cold down there? Will a bird blanket be sufficient enough?
I am also curious as to what kind of bird to get. I know I want a bird in the Parrot family such as a caique or conure. I also want to be able to teach them to speak, and was wondering are there parrots better equipped for this than others, or faster learners?
