Birds make interesting pets.

To be frank, Birds are a bit tough for most children to raise. The require significant amounts of care every day, not just food and water, but also things like covering them at night and if you want them to be friendly, quite a bit of handling. Additionally, birds are fragile and can easily become sick or injured.

Birds, in my humble opinion, need to spend a significant amount of time out of their cages. To be born with wings but unable to fly around seems like a cruel life.

Birds are a great pet, but you have to make sure you have time, space, and the proper environment to raise one.
