This just proves again, you really can find anything out there. I think I know exactly why this poster is wanting to give up the birds. Probably the same situation I could see myself get into. Don't act like you've never had that one moment when you saw a talking parrot somewhere on TV, and thought 'man it'd be so cool to have a talking bird and teach it to say all sorts of stupid stuff.' What you don't think about is one week later having to listen to a nagging bird all day long. I guess this person found out the hard way that it's not as great as it seems it would be.
Oh and what's better than one talking bird? Two of course..
