I have always been fascinated by parrots. They are gorgeous with their bright colors and fun personalities to match it’s hard not to love them.
While I don’t think I will ever get one for our house, I do think they can make an adorable family member and the fact that you can train them to say certain things is just fun.
I am sure that parrots are just like kids and they will always pick up on the words and phrases you would prefer they not, but you can have a little bit of fun with it.
If I had a parrot, I would want them to learn phrases beyond the typical “I love you” and “hello”. I would want to have some fun with it at other’s expense because not everyone has a parrot in the house!
