twobytwopets Update....
They are sharing a nice big cage now, they don't have to be near each other. But I guess near each other for birds might be something totally different than for us.
They ate together and are currently cuddled up on a tiny perch preening each other. We may have a match.

FinnickHog I'm planning on just having chickens for eggs, but we'll see. I don't know if I could have anything just for eating. I get too attached . Donkeys are amazing! And wild hogs are terrifying. I'm so glad we don't get them up here. It's mainly just coyotes.

twobytwopets I will continue to have chickens, and other animals that will bite me, kick me, head butt me or willingly inflict bodily harm. But most of those aren't ever going to be considered pets. Food, not friends. Or they are there to guard the food. Yes, we are going to have a guard donkey, dogs can be bribed way to easy and won't stand up to most threats or even scare them off. Coyotes, bobcats and wild hogs don't mess around.

FinnickHog Ooh, wow. That actually sounds kind of intimidating!

I still really want chickens though.

twobytwopets Chickens have a strange thing, they are attracted to red. I have a fairly large tattoo on my calf and back of my knee. Part is red, it was a fairly fresh tattoo. I walked in and one pecked bad enough to draw blood, then they were like sharks. I had 10 trying to go after me then. I don't go in the coop in shorts anymore, don't care how hot it is.

FinnickHog A chicken, really? I can't even imagine!

I have a scar on my arm from an African grey that didn't want to step off me when I had to leave. He bit through my leather jacket and pinched the skin so bad it scarred. But it didn't hurt all that much to me. My conure used to pinch and twist and that was awful. Pepper never really bit. I guess I just lucked out. She's always been mouthy but hasn't ever really clamped down.

twobytwopets It depends, some conures are really loud. Lovebirds in a group are loud and annoying. Cockatoos are ear bleeding loud when they want to be. Quakers are loud when they want to. Eclectus can be pretty loud but not screamers. Grays, 50/50. Amazons, it depends.

Biting, had a cockatiel bite through my skin, could have had a finger piercing. My male Ekkie bit and twisted, but he would only bite lose skin. Parrotlets bit and latched on, but they couldn't get a beak full of anything but skin. The big ones can get ahold of bone. Or they can get enough skin to do serious damage.
So size more so will dictate how they bite. How they bite will determine how bad it hurts. However my worst bite was a chicken.

FinnickHog I didn't ever really look into volume when I was researching because it just wasn't a factor back then. I'm guessing the bigger ones are the louder ones? My aunt used to have a pair of Moluccan cockatoos and man could they yell. It seems like the smaller ones have worse bites though. I hate that pinching thing!

twobytwopets He wasn't sure what I was doing at first.
Sound sensitivity... My middle son is severely autistic. That is why I initially sold the birds and stopped breeding. Re-acquiring them has been gradual. We have also passed on certain types.
Once we are at the farm, we will put up a building for birds and I can get some loud birds again, also cage size won't be an issue. Then, babies once they are pulled for hand feeding will be in the house.
Senegal parrots aren't bad about noise level, pionus aren't either.
