My roommates have birds. Parrots and finches. The finches are fine, they just sit in their cage 24/7 and don't say much. There's this one that's almost pure white that looks cool too.
But the parrots. Holy hell. They don't, ever, shut the hell up. Not sure what kind they are, but they don't talk talk. They just make as much noise as possible to guarantee that I wake up at a certain time, get a headache, and never ever go downstairs because they make me go crazy, even when trying to make food.
