=) Thanks for the info! The one at work may not be the one I get, I am willing to buy from breeders over petshops and there are two that sound promising I've found in this site's classifieds section that I'm trying to contact.

As for the thirty minutes a day, that's all I could devote to a wild bird to work with it in one sitting, no way to really spread it out. Would a tame one be better? The way my (possibly naive) mind is thinking about this, if I don't have to earn it's trust, I can just take it out without hassles and just keep it tame. Or am I really showing just how little I know about keeping a bird?

And the final decision depends on what experienced keepers tell me. I don't want to get a bird, be a horrible owner who can't provide for my pet, and have to send it to a rescue. =) I like doing as thorough of research as I can before getting a new type of pet.

As for my snakes, they're little. =) Two kings (one yearling, one hatchling) and one corn (5ft adult) all in top locking critter cages. So no, our little Houdinis don't roam free lol. And the fourth snake we're getting is another morph of corn, so no worries from it either.

Hmm.. I've read that leaving some kind of music on in the background helps keep the birds quiet. Is that in any way true, or will the bird just scream over the music?

If it proves I can provide for this species, I think I'm leaning toward a hand raised one.. unless by some miracle this bird stays at the petshop over the next few months and I'm able to tame it there... which is doubtful.

Thanks for your input and I look forward to reading your next answers. =) Hopefully there will be more answers soon so I can get as much input as possible.
