Hello I thought Id post this thread up before I forget about it(bad memory). I recently came upon a 30gallon. Its 3ft long, I think 12-14inches wide and a foot tall or so(Id say 16inches). I heard and read you can keep some birds in glass aquariums. I like quails and chickens. I used to live by a farm when I was a child. I even kept colored chicks(didnt know it was bad back then). They were sold to us. I got a purple one for some reason. I was wondering if I can keep any kind of bird in a terrarium. I asked this at a petstore and a few people said they didnt know(as ussual). So I am seeking more information. Also Id like to point out I have bad allergies sometimes. So with the bedding it cant be anything dusty. Iam okay with dirt, care fresh, and processed bark (the one thats in straws.). They sell the bark for reptiles but Iam not talking about the huge chunks. I am talking about the ones that are long and are like straw. I forget the name of it. I think its called cypress mulch. My mom is very skeptical about me keeping birds. But I like them. Even if I cant hold them. Though id love to if I can. A note: Iam not planning to keep them for breeding purposes or commercial. Just as pets. So if I get eggs Iam most likely going to eat them. Anyone could inform me? Ps.: I dont plan on keepingmore than two. Also id like to know how much can juveniles cost. I want to know their lifespan and get them at the youngest age that is not a chick. Chicks need extensive care and Iam not ready for that. Id like to know where I can buy them. Also is it illegal to keep these in nj? I live in a suburban area but I want to keep them indoors. Will they stink up the place? Make a lot of annoying noises? Especially at 1am or 6am. I already keep turtles(given to me) and they have been with me for 5years already. I also keep toads. SO I do have some experience in animals. I also keep a rabbit her names hunny shes 2 years old. I just want to get informed.
