Ever wondered what life might be like with a pet bird? Small birds like parakeets, conures, budgies, and the like, are affordable, trainable, and loving pets. They are also readily available at pet stores across the country. Despite all these pros, pet birds are still fairly uncommon. Less than 2% of pets in the UK are birds, an estimated 1 million in total.
Whether you’re thinking of getting one, or just curious about what they’re like, we’ve managed to source some advice for you lovely readers from a bird owner. As much as other research is needed, it’s nice to hear from a real person who’s had a bird for years, instead of just Google. So, we interviewed Tafline, proud owner of the adorable ‘Ringling.’ Enjoy!
