Penelope was a gorgeous bird. She was all yellow. She was very vocal and would let me walk around with her while she sat on my finger. Maintenance for birds can be one of the drawbacks. They fling seeds everywhere and they make a mess on the bottom of the cage since they eliminate often. One other negative about owning birds is that they can be quite noisy as soon as it gets light out. No matter how dark you make the cage, they still seem to wake up and start chirping away.
But, birds are fun to watch and listen to. They are a great pet for children. It doesn't require a lot of skill to feed them and give them fresh water.
