Yeah! That'd be quite hard... Can't imagine many people doing that. Maybe graham from BHG, someone from Gardening Australia or Don Bourke.

Yeah. Especially with the number of Animal Rights Activists. Maybe they should have a look at bird aviaries and see how much time and effort is put in with the diet, aviary maintenence
Oh yeah, animal rights activists speeches and articles only see the negatives, they only see a bird in a cage, not what happens behind the scenes. And especially they do not see the good that comes out of it, if it was not for aviculture, some species would be lost, and it usually takes a good breeder to crack the secret of breeding an endangered specie

The article below is a textbook example of what people are made to believe. It’s funny because everything this PETA article says pet birds don’t get, Aviary birds get.

lies and more lies, all they see is what come up on their screen at home, whether it is the truth or not.
The Only birds they ever talk about are they ones that are kept in miniature cages usually in the third world countries like mexico etc.. or kept as pets with the mentally ill
The normal bird keeper in this day and age, has a certainly better idea of keeping bird compared to keeping a cockie in a cage 40 years or so ago

People who already have a bird and are committed to providing excellent care can improve his or her life by adopting another bird of the same or similar species from a reputable avian rescue organization, sanctuary, shelter, or animal rights group to be the bird’s companion. It’s important to let birds fly free for long periods every day—in an aviary or other secured, large enclosure
This bit here - is where they get it right.

One thing that I notice a lot now, are that people that have birds and do not have the time to get them out and give them the tip top best, they usually just tend to rehome them, I got a heap of zebra finches, a quaker parrot and 7 bourkes parrots from 2 different people who did take pretty good care of their birds, but just wanted them to have a better life with someone else that can spend a lot more time with them

I've split the conversation from this thread into a new topic, because it's veered well away from the future of aviculture.

Same with me. Not as many birds, but a classmate did give me her budgie 'cause she didn't want it.
