    What parrot species to keep as pets as a beginner?

    I want to go for African Grey but almost everyone seems to be suggesting me to keep some other parrot as a beginner. So please suggest me a breed.

    Parrotlet. All the personality in an itty-bitty package.  Good luck making your selection!

    I would recommend a budgerigar.  They are clever little parakeets.  They can learn many tricks and even learn to talk if you work with them.  You could also consider a lovebird or a cockatiel, as well.

    My first parrot was/is (still have him) a green cheek conure. They are cute, colorful, and fairly easy to maintain. I would not go for a Grey right off the bat. Try a small guy, like a parrotlet, conure, budgie, and gain experience!
    Best of luck
