Subject:Re: Rescued a Nanday Conure
Message:LYes Leann I agree with you, however, Nandays and Cockatoo's usually don't make good first birds for people with little or no bird experience. A beginner should always start out with a small bird gradually working their way up to the larger or volunteer in a center for birds for a year or two.
     That way there will be fewer birds that end up homeless.
