I agree, a crow or raven is not just some animal you, as you put it, imprison. They are way too intelligent for that. I'm not quite sure of your living situation, but I know of people who always put food out for the birds, and crows would always come and wait for it. I guess you could interact with a wild one until you find your perfect match?

I live in England, and I was wondering if raven's are legal pets here, also I wanted to know what level of pet it would be? Difficult or average or easy to look after, and in comparison to your regular birdies.

I have a corvid and they are relentless

If you need videos of what it is like to be a guardian of a corvid then look no further, they are extremely hard work and also very messy, it's not like looking after a Parrot, it's the same as owning a child who has ADHD, think again, do your homework, then you can determine whether or not that YOU can take care of one

As beautiful as they are, I don't think I'd have the energy and creativeness to care for an animal that smart. I like the types of animals that are happy to see you, but are still content to be alone. As much as I'd love to have one, I think it would just make me tired, lol. But maybe that's just because I'm not used to birds.

In the US it is highly illegal to keep native birds. What you need to check there for non-native birds in UK is to see if they are DWA listed as needing permits.


I am desperately interested in finding a raven to own in the UK. Can you link me to the group you mention above? Many thanks, Mimi.

It's not that busy lately though. FB has taken all the traffic from yahoogroups but people still answer when there is a post.
