    There is a reason why they are rare always. I suggest you dicide on what bird you want first. Then see the requirements for that species. Talk with people that own and sell those birds and be prepared with your wallet as well. Knowledge is power.

    Haha that's a good one mynahs are cool lorikeets seem like a lot of work with the nectar but I can handle the fruit vitamins and meat etc. But I was also interested in turacos a lot which in the spring I may get them I got around 500 dollars for Christmas so I can get a ton but I am not certain about what to get yet how much do mynahs run around 300

    Quote:Was that a misprint- if your buying a ton of softbills or turacos- I think you need another zero on that $500. Then you can get a few pounds.
