I have been use to dogs for all of my life. Due to my schedule, I purchased a parrot. She is a great parrot. She doesn't scream. She like to play with toys and sit on your shoulder. I don't know how to train a bird and they didn't particularly do anything at the pet store when I came back for a two visit post check.
The bird was hatched on Valentine's day of this year.
Due to nature of the having a parrot, I would imagine that meeting in person is the best way to ensure she goes to a good home.
