Crazy bird lady?

How many parakeets would I have to own before I'd cross over to the crazy side?
I thought it would be cool to have a big cage of birdies like they have at the pet store. 6 maybe?
They'd be well cared for
Do birds fall under the cat column,or the fish column? (caged versus free roaming)
I have 2 now

  • 6 would be ok, it would be 6 too many for me, but not in crazy cat lady territory. Now if you had an entire aviary I would start worrying about you!

  • As long as you have a big enough cage/cages 6 is not too many. Be aware that you might need a seperate cage nor mating/nesting. I do not know all that much about parakeets.

  • I've had my cockatiel for 19 years. He is out of his cage most of the day & flies around at will. One bird pooping is enough for me!

  • Ew!! Birds are soooooo yucky!! .... and how does your cat not eat them??

    On a more serious note- I don't think 6 is crazy... Now when you enclose a room in your house in glass and collect like 20... that may qualify. ( yes I have seen it- they turned their sun room into an aviary! WHAT?)

  • My cats ignore them most of the time. They only get interested if I bring my male out for nail clipping
