Im about 7 or 8 hours from rapid city and about 4 hours from Miles City. I could probably swing driving to Miles City.

Also, that is the type of cage I had in my head! It looks like the size I was imagining.

Just don't go crazy buying can be WAY too fun.

We have chickens. They're awfully friendly but I'm not sure they'd do well in an apartment.

Actually - go crazy buying toys. The more the better. I make a lot too. Toys should be rotated often to keep them interested. Also, make sure to get more perches than what the cage comes with - preverably different sized ones so they can excersize their feet. You can get ones made out of branches which work great!

Tee hee no, I don't think they would approve of a chicken. :P

I've been looking at toys online...I think this is going to be another expensive habit :P

I didn't read through the whole post but I'd recommend a cockatiel for a first time bird. They're social, LOVE attention and cuddles, can be trained to speak a little (obviously just mimic) I have a male cockatiel that I have to find a new home for, if you lived in Oregon I'd sell him to you, my boyfriend's cats want to eat him. :(

Yes, they definitely seem like another big expence, that's why I haven't taken the plunge and gotten one...yet!! Between all the dogs, 2 cats, and 4 horses, I just can't justify buying something else to spend more money on, lol!!

Now I want a budgie, lol!

If you make perches out of branches make sure you properly sanitize them first and get all the bugs out. Cooking them in the over for a little while works usually, but you gotta do it right, sometimes soaking them in bleach is another good way
