House birds would be the worse pet to have. Reptiles would be second on my list of worse pets. Birds are the worse of the two because they are noisy and messy. Reptiles are a close second because they stink. Birds are too high maintenance for me. Whereas reptiles I would forget about until I could smell them. So I guess reptiles wouldn’t be the worse but they are for me.
House birds are not my favorite because they throw their food all over the place if they do not like it. Not to mention when they poop it is not in one spot in their cage the poop gets on the floor outside the cage as well. If you do not cover them up they get as loud as kids and won’t quiet down until they get covered up. Sometimes even the cover does not work.
Reptiles on the other hand are quiet but they can stink to high heaven if the tank does not get cleaned every day. These pets are lower maintenance than the birds are when it comes to eating. Maybe needing to eat once every other day. I’m not sure though the only reptile I’ve had is an iguana and that was a long time ago. It was mostly my mother’s pet that we kids had to take care of to teach responsibility.
