Can I have a pair of birds or a single one for one I have with the intentions of breeding?

Can I have a parrot on a trial basis and return him or her?
-We are aware situations happen beyond our control and a parrot companion may need to be returned to us. Parrots aren't easy or cheap companions so it's important to do your research to figure out if you can provide for one (or more). Be prepared ahead of time. This scenario is something we try and avoid due to the fact going home to home is very stressful on birds.
My current parrot is lonely and he or she needs a friend. Can I adopt one?
-In this scenario there is a high chance your parrot companion and the one to be will hate each other. In some cases they will aggressively seek each other out. When adopting it's important to plan that they may need to be kept safely apart.
