I love birds and they useually like me but I have never owned one. I don't think I would unless I had the time to spend with it. They are great companions though. I always say hello to the ones at the local pet store. I really like cockatoo's they are very mischeivious. But my fav that they ever had was a little cockatoo. Are there mini cockatoos? I don't know much about birds. But he looked like a little white ball of feathers. He was only about 6 to 8 inches. By my runner up is definatly the Senegal!
