Birds are a lot like small children when it comes to boredom. If you don't keep them constantly engaged and entertained, they can become grouchy, destructive and difficult to be around. Because they are such intelligent animals, besides providing them the very best parrot food, caring for cockatoos, macaws, african greys, and other pet birds may seem daunting.
Birds are very social creatures, and they require plenty of mental stimulation and social interaction to be truly happy.
Parakeet, cockatiel, cockatoo, lovebird, macaw, budgie and African grey species all possess surprising amounts of emotional complexity and general intelligence, and they all want to form a bond with you and your family.
