Should people keep birds as pets?

Answer

If a person wants a bird, and if that person is prepared and ready to properly care for the bird, there's no reason he or she shouldn't have one. Just like there's no reason an adequately prepared and dedicated cat or dog owner shouldn't have his or her pet. If somebody neglects the bird or otherwise doesn't properly care for the bird, maybe that person shouldn't have one.
