Remember The baby you are buying is no different from a 2 year old child, and really needs to be treated in much the same way. In the wild Mum and Dad would do everything necessary to teach the young so it has every chance in life.
When taking on a new baby you are taking over for the parents!

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!
Many breeders sell parrots without making clear that, while these birds make fantastic companions, it is through the youngster period they are at their best. When the bird reachs adulthood the problems that come are simple yet can be devistating.
Humans invented celebacy for humans. We are not able to neuter parrots, so when parrots reach sexual maturity they need to breed.
If the bird has been brought up in a
loving caring family without any feathered companions the chances are
this bird most likely thinks it is a human. This is called imprinting.
Sadly this results in parrots getting hormonal, stressed and in some cases aggressive. It can start plucking or even try to mate with a human. It is at this point some members of the family start to find the bird difficult to live with.
It is not long before the poor bird is sent to spend more and more hours
It is not long before the poor bird is sent to spend more and more hours in it's cage, or is found a new home. Sadly it is by this time that the birds brain is so messed up that it is no good for breeding.
The point is if you are thinking of getting a parrot for company, then please give a thought to it's future and factor in a partner at some point, well before the bird reaches maturity. You'll get twice as much affection and will have a well rounded and contented Parrot!
