Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jul 02, 2013
my parents got me a parrot when I turned 7. I was first very excited thinking I would teach the bird how to talk, etc etc. Chiko was very shy at first but later, she became more and more aggressive. she didn't want to learn anything, so she still can't speak. I bet it is also because her gender is FEMALE, and usually male parrots are better at imitating human voices.
however, Chiko is now 9 years old and she hasn't had any problems with her health, she even laid eggs once!
