OMIGOSH YES! I'm a Hitchock junkie! That is still one of my favorites. Did you know the actors were locked in a cage for a week with the birds and for seven days five prop men throwing birds at them? Tipi Hedren had a breakdown during production it was so traumatic.

I agree with the others, i think your going to be making a big mistake...........Even in the attic, if these birds want to be noisey, your gonna hear them, no matter where you are in the house!( in the wild, its claimed these birds can be heard a 1/4 mile away), and as others stated, most of the time, they are a one person bird......Another thing to consider,is the lifespan of these birds....If raised properly, they will probably outlive your father.....They have been know to live from anywhere from 50 to 70 years.........be prepared for alot of bitten fingers for someone..........

question for you:..........if your Dad is qualified and knows everything, why doesnt he know the breeder box sizes?

cause he never bred them before. well the noise isnt a problem because noone is ever in the house they Own a store so they r never home butim checking up on them everyday. my dad already warned everyone to NEVER TOUCH THE BIRDS!!!!! is what he said to everyone that comes through the house.my dad is 33 and if they outlive him its my turn he has a 7 year old son.oh and btw hes my stepfather lol sry forgot to mention. his son is 7 so he will take over and so on. he built the breeder box himself out of wood to put like a slidy door in and a hole for them to get in. anything else to say?
