So...I'm not a huge large parrot person. There are a few species I like a lot, but have never gone crazy over them. My husband probably is even less interested in them. We were visiting a pet store today where an old aviary friend works. We both ended up cooing over a goffins who gently groomed out faces, hopped around like a nut, and greatly enjoyed sticking his head out the bars to be scratched. I've got to say, I fell. Hard. I can't believe how much my husband was fussing over the little guy, I've never seen him do that before. XD I wouldn't be getting one anytime soon if we did decide to get one, but would love to hear from those who have owned this species, the good and the bad. We would most likely go through a bird adoption group for something like a parrot.
