"I am owned by a wonderful Citron Cockatoo named Tenny. He is a rescue and has been with me for about 8 years now. I love him more than anything! He is the funniest person I know and there is no other person Id rather spend my time with! But, he is a parrot, and like most parrots, are only about one generation out of the wild. They are still very much "wild" and they behave accordingly. He screams sometimes, and can be really loud. He is one of 12 parrots in the house. He is also very messy and my vacuum never gets put away! Sometimes this is hard to remember when you are looking at your parrot, in your living room, and he is acting crazy! It can be overwhelming! Please, anyone looking to share their life with a bird, do your research first. Know that they chew everything, they are loud and messy, and if you are an adult, they will probably outlive you. They are expensive to keep and to upkeep. And, no matter what anyone tells you, they will and do bite. Hard. Its usually nothing personal, its just the way it is. Its a way they can let us know they are upset or angry. Just yesterday, Tenny bit a hole through my lower lip. Yes, all the way through...I am an experienced parrot owner and have been doing this for a long time, and as Ive mentioned, I have 12. This is the kind of thing that can make a person give up their bird. This isn't the first time Ive been bitten. I needed stitches in my lip. All of my birds are rescues. Please think twice before getting a bird."

16 - 11 = ?
