FOR SOMEONE THAT WANTS A BIRD FOR THE FIRST TIME, SAY THAT THE MOTHER OR THE FATHER COMES IN AND WANTS TO GET A BIRD FOR THEIR CARE — WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST? WELL, I ALWAYS LIKE PARAKEETS AND COCKATIEL’S. WHY? TO BE THE FIRST PET. COCKATIEL’S — THE LITTLE HAND SAID COCKATIEL’S ARE A LOT OF FUN. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY RIGHT NOW. THEY ARE SO POPULAR THAT WE RUN OUT IMMEDIATELY. SMIT — WHAT IS THE GOING PRICE? FOR A TAME PARAKEET, YOU ARE — YOU ARE LOOKING AT $40 AND FOR HIM CUT HAND SAID COCKATIEL’S THEY ARE ABOUT $100- $120. THAT IS FOR A NICE TAME ONE THAT YOU CAN HOLD AND PLAY WITH. TIFFANY, DO YOU HAVE ANY BABIES THAT YOU CAN SHOW US? I HAVE ONE TO SHOW YOU TODAY. OKAY. LET’S SEE THEM. HOW OLD? THIS ONE IS ABOUT TWO WEEKS OLD. MAYBE THREE. AT WHAT AGE CAN YOU ADOPT THEM? SO THEY ARE ABOUT THREE MONTHS OLD WHEN THEY ARE READY TO GO TO A NEW HOME. WHEN THEY CAN EAT ON THEIR OWN. YOU RAISE THEM YOURSELF? FROM THREE MONTHS OLD? WE DO. WE TAKE THEM OUT OF THE NEST WHEN THEY ARE BABIES AND THEN WE HAVE TO BE THEIR MOTHER. SO CUTE. ANYONE THAT WANTS TO GET A PARROT, THEY LIVE A LONG TIME. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE INVESTED AND COMMITTED. I WILL SAY THAT.
