Would you rather have a turtle or a bird for a pet?

I've had a turtle before and I loved it. I think that birds are too noisy, but that's my opinion. So I would rather have a turtle.

  • Turtles... Most def. Birds are nasty, way too much poop for me!

  • Birds! I have had them all my life. I have two little fluff heads sitting behind me right now. They're a big messy, but as long as you clean their cage regularly, they don't smell, they're easy to feed and I love listening to them unless I have a headache. And they're soft and I've had one that was the most friendly creature on the planet. I LOVE BIRDIES!

    Oh, and I had a turtle once. It got sick and died within a week of me getting it. :(

  • ~*Bird*~.... I've had birds and turtles.. and birds are more fun and display more personality in my opinion.... I too don't like a bunch of noisy chirping, which is why I am selective with what breed of bird I have! Finches and tiny birds tend to be brainless things... budgies too.. had a pair and was about ready to open the cage door one day if they didn't "Shush", quickly found them a home... I prefer bigger birds, less noise!!! Last bird was a Cockatiel.. and I still miss him terribly, he was the sweetest thing and had a great personality

  • I've had birds since third grade. I love my bird. He is a bit noisy, and messy, but i've had a turtle before and their poop stinks and aren't nearly as interactive.

  • We had turtles to, but they've passed. Honestly I don't think I could ever get another pet that requires a cage 24/7 ever again, except maybe simple fish. We've had turtles, frogs and a hamster, and I'm done with caged pets. lol And I don't think I could ever get a bird. The first time it would wake me up with its chirping I'd let it out of the cage and open a window and pretend not to notice. Yeah, I don't think I could deal with the noisy animals either. I'd rather just watch them from my bird feeder!!
