Acquired: Pet store
Posted Apr 22, 2014
This was my first experience owning my own pet. I owned them when I was only a child, but I had trouble bonding with them. They were loud and messy. They weren't hostile, but they weren't really friendly either. I could hold them, but they'd bite my finger after a bit. I think they needed a larger cage and more training than I could provide at that time.
The pros for these guys are that they are pretty, healthy, and easy to feed. They're also playful, and you can teach them to mimic sounds.
The cons are that they are loud and messy. They really should have a good size cage and someone who can train them. They aren't bad with people, but need to be taught proper behavior.
