We used to have birds. The first one was MEAN. I think the second one was too. Birds aren't really my thing. And when we had my cat...he tried to kill the one bird. It got out of it's cage and Sugar (the cat) grabbed it in it's mouth and I had to pry the cat's mouth open and get the bird out. I saved it's life. Haha.
I have a Cockatiel and even though he hates to be handled and will like attack you if you try to touch him I love him. Haha He's loud and kinda obnoxious and loves to drive us all crazy, and if you ignoor him for too long he'll start flinging seeds at you. It's actually quite funny. Haha I love the little butt head to death even when he's waking me up at the crack of dawn. =]
I had a Quaker parrot. He was super cute and I loved watching him splash in his bath water. But I ended up selling him because he was harassing my dog so bad biting chasing...that the dog started wetting herself constantly. Mowgli (birds name) was also fairly mean to my husband.
I have a pet ostrich named Sweetpea! Haha here's a picture-
She's awesome, she's 2 years old (and 7 feet tall) now, I've had her since she was four months old. She very friendly and follows you around like a giant dog, she even has her own pair of old tennis shoes that she loves to play with!
I also have an African goose named Silly- ya know, "Silly Goose" ;). When he was younger he would ride in my bike basket to the beach and surf on the end of my surfboard. He went everywhere with me. He pretty much stays at the farm now because he chases my mom (bad, if he gets her he'll make her bleed)
