Some Aussies have a stronger prey drive that others. Aussies wouldn't nessesarily be any more likely to do anything to birds that a german shepherds or goldens. If you get a puppy, ask the breeder if the parents have a strong prey drive. Also you would need to socalize your puppy very well to your parrots. If you would adopt a adult dog, be sure to see if they know anything about it's background because it could of had a history of chasing or harming birds. If that dog has a history of a strong prey drive it could be almost immposible to fix. Like the other person said if you get an aussie, it needs to be the right one and should never be unatended. We have two cats and i toltally trust her with them...as long as there is not a bone around. Hope this helps.
