Should I let my parrot out of the cage?

You should only let your parrot out of their cage when there's nothing that could potentially harm them nearby. For instance, cats, dogs or small children may cause harm to a pet parrot.

Can you keep a bird in your bedroom?

Yes, of course, it is perfectly safe for you to have a healthy bird in your bedroom. My only concern would be for the bird, which needs company (you) and plenty of full-spectrum light. If you spend a lot of time in your room, and you have a full-spectrum lamp over the cage, everything should be just fine.

Do parrots remember their old owners?

Thus there are heart-warming stories of parrots that have been reunited with owners after long-term separations.
