but, pet Birds/Parrots are not considered as "pets."

Thus, no pet deposits, no monthly pet fee. They are considered like pet fish.

thats great as long as it works out, but parrots dont usually make good aparetment companions. between the volume and frequency of noice and their tendency to be a tad destuctive...i would NEVER reccomend most of the parrots "apartment friendly" green cheek conure, teils, budgies, linnies, parrotlets absolutly, but the larger conures, macaws, amazons and toos...not so much...not unless your apartment is soundproofed lol

birds are also not a good pet for everyone...just something to keep in mind...
I lOVE my macaw...but id never have him if i had neighors attatched by a wall...theyd HATE me lol...hes not a frequntly loud bird...but when he decideds he just needs ot have a good scream you can hear him down the street!

I'm lucky in that my Nanday is pretty quiet. But I would not have a large bird like a macaw or cockatoo, or a loud bird like a sun conure, in an apartment. That's just asking for a phone call from the landlord about noise.

Check the lease carefully first, because even some pet-friendly apartments require permission for caged animals. My lease stated that, but they didn't ask so I didn't either - because I'm quite sure they wouldn't give permission for 20+ snakes, and I'd be homeless if I tried finding a landlord who would.

Snakes are easy to keep "under the radar," since they don't make any noise, rarely leave their enclosures, and have no discernible smell (provided you're cleaning as needed). I used to have a parrot, though, and they are most definitely NOT easy to hide... those things are noisy and messy!!
