What's the point of keeping a bird?
« on: February 02, 2015, 09:22:21 AM »
Why do people keep birds in a cage?  I don't see a point in locking it up just for you to look at it.  You might say it's for the bird singing it's soothing.  But I don't think it's singing, It's probably screaming it's head off to let them out, 'Get me of of this hell hole you muthaf***er!"




Maybe a parrot is OK.  It can be out of it's cage and roam about and talks.

I agree man. my hero Howard Stern always says that keeping a bird inside a cage is one of the worst acts of animal cruelty. Birds are meant to fly.
My good friend Sam used to have a pet bird that he let fly (and sh1t!) freely around the house.

I don't get it either. people either keep them in a cage which is pretty cruel or with the big birds parrots and the like, they clip their wings so they can't fly away. A pet should be a voluntary party in this. If you have to chain them, lock them up, cut off their legs or wings, what's the point.

Perhaps they just want to keep a colorful bird, like keeping an aquarium.

There are a lot of colorful and exotic birds in the Saigon bird market.

well, maybe that wasn't the right question.

animals aren't inanimate objects used for decoration

I think if you truly love something you tend to destroy this object of affection.  This applies to women and birds alike.

Women are willing participants whether for material or emotional fulfillment. Same with common pets like cats or dogs. You don’t need to chain them up. If you treat them well and feed them they would trade the rough street life for a warm place on your couch. I think keeping homing pigeons are ok bc they are allowed to go free but choose to nest at your home.

They chirp and some humans like to think the bird is communicating to them. They make up conversations and imagine that the trapped bird is coherent in the humans language.

It’s like keeping fish in a little fishbowl, except fish don’t make any audible noise.

has to do with possessiveness personality.


i think i was conditioned to be like this. i like to pick pretty flowers and kept  exotic bugs in jars when I was young.  I like looking at them...

Yes, with people too. Not keeping them in jars, but I had this "she's mine" mentality. lols. "My precious."

Then I learn how to truly love things. I like flowers so i reason that if I pluck it then it will die. If I left it there, not only it will be beautiful, it will be prolonged, some will fertilize into fruits and others will produce something useful for birds and insect. So to truly like that flower, you leave it alone in its natural state.

In fact i am so zen-like these days, even seeing people cutting tree and carving bushes to make shapes --i see it as mutilation . I think nature is prefect the way it is. To be perfect is to be imperfect, because likely no two things are alike, because mother nature is unique like that.

Its hard to leave nature alone. When you feed a wild animal, you go against the law of nature.

Gods intended animals to be self sufficient and be able to feed themselves. By feeding them all the time or enough time, you are weaken their species.If things were left alone, they wouldn't needed to be fed by the hands of men in the first place. Nature is perfect the way it was, by meddles with nature, men brought evils into the world. he forces one soil to yield one product of another, and one tree to yields the fruits of another. he mutilate his dogs, his horses, and he made slaves out of other men.

under such existing condition man left from birth, he is much more of a monster than all these creatures that he views as beneath him.

It is too late now, and unrealistic to truly be natural. we are all born in chains. but that doesn't stop me from finding my ways and live life in accordance to nature and her wills--if it is possible.

my education not only come from things, other men, but also nature.
