What's a good/safe breed to purchase for a first-time bird owner?
An African cockatoo .. they are so good to have and can be well trained!! I had one for 15 years . I used to love their whistling all the time
i agree with parakeet. i remember having a few as a kid and they were easy enough as far as birds go as pets.
I third the parakeet motion. When I say 'parakeet' I mean a Budgerigar.
Budgies are great little birds. They're fairly easy to care for, and once tamed, they make great companions. They're intelligent, and they have personality. They can also be taught to talk, and learn all sorts of tricks if that's something you're interested in.
Cockatiels are a good choice, too, but my personal preference is budgies.
A parakeet would be a good first bird. I have had a few. They are a joy.
yes, a parakeet or a cocktaiel are good starter birds their bite is not as bad as a big bird and they are alot quieter and easier to handle.
