About parrots

Intelligent, affectionate, sociable and good looking are the characteristics that make a parrot a good company and a very popular pet.

Not to mention their ability to mimic human voices, which make them a true curiosity for most of us. Of course, when it comes to keep them at home, there are a lot of things you need to keep in mind.

Different species of parrots have different needs. Parrot behavior can also vary from one to another.

While some of them can reach 80 years, other species, the small parrots only live for 15 – 20 years.
