I totally discounted my old pet birds in the past when I replied to this, mainly because they weren't really pets other than the pigeon. None of them were intended, but I have ended up handraising 100+ starlings over the years I used to board my horses out at this one place, as well as one pigeon (I didn't know what the hell it was at the time, my horse just found this pink thing on the ground). The starlings are hilarious birds to have around, every morning as adults they were all there at the window wanting food. These are not legal to keep as pets due to the fact that they are a native species. Pigeons make good pets, but they require a lot of space and attention.
