Should we keep birds in a cage as pets?


Imagine yourself in the bird's position. What if you are a prisoner alone in a cage? What if your captors are not your own kind? What if you are fed not because you are hungry but according to the whims of your captors? What if you are part of an exhibition?

    My experience with most common pet birds shows that they appreciate company far more than flying can achieve.

    Humans are obviously speciesists. Why do they kill bugs with so much ease? The answer is that humans view them as simplistic. And well, they are, like all non-humans. Often the same people who hate my pet keeping on your pretense kill bugs easily.
