Well cortunix are cool and all, chickens are too I'd totally have chickens if it wasn't illegal, and cortunix can be a bit tough in winter but I'll prolly still get a couple more in spring. These house birds sound more entertaining and easier to care for, but I'm not sure what to get they all seem really cool so if you want to sell me what to get or what you like or post pictures of your birds that would be awesome. Reasons why I want certain species: 1. Zebra Finches - Small birds, easy to breed them (which is something I want to do), not too loud, and don't sound very difficult to take care of. 2. Budgies - They can talk, they seem docile, and easy to train, I think their breeding is easy. The thing about the budgies is tho that if I'm buying from a pet store I don't think I can count on them to be trainable soI'd probably have to wait for their young right? What I'd really want is two pairs of zebra finches, and a well trained budgie. Also what are the prices of zebra finches and budgies at the pet stores?
