I will make sure I have lots of bandages if I am ever able to get one. But, I want to a bit more large bird experience before I try adopting one. Lots of bird adoption agencies won't let you adopt one without previous parrot experience. Thats probably a good idea on their part.

If you ever do get one, absolutangel, I found that if you adopt an attitude that you will definitely get bitten, but also, will definitely not die from the bites, you can withstand the initial interactions with the bird. I've had numerous cockatiels (their bites are relatively nothing) that I've hand-fed, and 2 amazons, one of which was hand fed, and it worked like a charm, to take the attitude that I would get bit, but that it wouldn't kill me. And for some reason the parrot bites never seemed to bleed too much, even when it broke the skin. Now, the larger parrots like McCaws and Cockatoos, may be more troublesome to be bitten by. You'd have to talk to someone used to taming or training one of them.

But I definitely recommend that you try your hand (no pun intended) at raising one. You could start by adopting a pair of cockatiels. That gives you the experience and a bit of wisdom in handling such birds. And they are very lovable birds, as well.

Yea, there have been a few threads on this subject. Oh well!

Other than my fish, I have a crested gecko and I inherited my boyfriend's bearded dragon due to his move.

This is Caesar. I need some pictures of Agatha (the dragon).

And here's my buddy Emo. After only 1 year old he was killed by a loose Pit near my house. Spent over 8,500 to try and save his life. Emo is no longer here but I have his collar and name tags on my key chain.
