Mynah Birds as Pets

By December 26, 2007

Follow me on:

If you are looking for an uncommon and unique feathered friend, then the loveable and intelligent Mynah Bird may be the right pet for you. Known for their excellent talking ability, the Mynah Bird was once one of the most commonly kept softbills, but for some reason have lately become increasingly hard to find. To learn more about these obscure little beauties, check out these great Mynah Bird Articles from MynahBird.com. Finding the right bird for you may take some time and effort, but if you decide that a Mynah is the one, it will be well worth the wait!

I thought it was no longer legal for Mynah
Birds to be brought into the United States.
Would love to have another one, but didn’t think you could buy one anymore.

I’ve recentley started thinking about getting a bird, and started thinking about trying to acquire a Mynah Bird because of the Mynah Bird they had at the Barber Shop my Dad took me to as a kid. I used to love watching it and listening to it talk. However I don’t really know much about them and want to know if they make good pets?

I have a myhna bird,and I enjoy her very much but snice she’s come to her frist heat,I’m finding it very hard to deal with her new naughty ways. Myhna birds want alot of attention,more than other kinds of birds,she’s become so jellouse that she has poked me in the eye 4 times. I now wear safety glasses. she also has taken up screaming and bitting. I’m not sure what to do. they are a one person bird and very smart. to smart for her own good. I have other birds who are also haveing a hard time dealing with this little moody myhna bird who talks up a storm and looks for trouble all day. you have to be very careful cause myhna birds get into everything!!!!

My aunt and uncle had a mynah bird when I was younger and that bird was so fascinating. When Joker spoke, he sounded just like the person who taught him to say the word or funnier yet he sand Dixie and it sounded just like my cousin. Joker also loved playing in a bath. He would say “talk to me” and then when you said something he would say ” birds can’t talk”. He was the neatest bird I have ever known.
