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.

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

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

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!

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

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. :(

I'm my spare time I ride dragons and runners, practice my Harper skills, talk to dolphins and hang with MasterHarper Robinton.

Yes, they definitly 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!!

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
