I have a peach-faced lovebird, acquired as free to a good home... six years ago, and DS is almost 2. DS has definitely been bitten on the finger/ head/ feet when I have both of them crawling on me at once, but he's still interested in the bird, and enjoys watching him and watching me play with him, just doesn't try to touch him. They seem to have reached some kind of accord. DS does bother the birdcage, whacking it with various objects, and peeking under the cover in the morning, but I feel that's part of the arrangement. It was to my advantage that a lovebird is still fairly small, so can't snap off a finger or anything. Really, my biggest conflict with the bird is that he's so loud, so I have to move the cage outside for naptime, or stick him downstairs in the travel cage, then I forget he's there, then he gets crazy, etc. The dog is a much bigger PITA, behavior/ interactions-wise. They're both pains, not gonna lie. The pets, that is! But still, we keep them... some days, just because it would also be a pain to get rid of them!
