I'm toying with the idea of getting some birds for my flat... and just was curious whether anyone else here keeps birds? I have a very small place on the top floor of a block, and occasionally pine for a pet of some kind, but can't have a cat or dog... and don't want a reptile or spider etc. I'm also aware that people have strong feelings about caged birds, and while I'm only exploring the idea at the moment, please don't flame me for considering it. I'm open to hearing all arguments and experiences of people who keep birds, the pros and cons etc. What sparked this idea was seeing someone else's birds and thinking they looked happy and added some life to the room. They were small ones that looked a bit like this. Anyone know what these are?
