Do you? Do you really?
When you can hear the “scraping” sound…
Bleeding through the bandage ten minutes in.
Ozone bit Fletcher two weeks ago. THROUGH his nailbed. We were thankful he didn’t need an ER visit.
They are unpredictable; they bite often, and bite hard. They are far, far from kid-friendly. So let’s face it; most birds, were they dogs, would be put down.
Louie’s grandfather (or at least great-grandfather) likely flew the canopies of the Solomon Islands. And Ozone’s father is probably still terrorizing some local somewhere in Africa.
At no point should you assume birds are domesticated; they are feathered dinosaurs.
If you want a parrot, you have to face reality: They *will* bite you. End of story.
