    Get what YOU want,exotic or not. Learn all you can first about the birds and more important than all who ever you buy the birds from ask the person every thing you can about them and what is the HARDEST part of keeping them healthy and breeding requirements. [​IMG]

    First, decide how much space you would have available for that animal and what funding you have for it.( No sense falling in love with a bird that cost $1000 when you only have $200 to spend or a 5ft x 2 ft pen when it needs more space.... like a peacock.) Then look into birds you enjoy and can afford, that you can easily keep in that space. Then make up a pro & con list on getting each type of bird that fits into your criteria and decide from there....
