Keeping birds as pets

Q: Is it makrooh-e-tahreemi to keep pet birds? If yes, then what should one do? Can the pet birds be sold, purchased, hired, given to anyone for free? What should I do, can I kill it or do I have to let it go free.

A: No, it is permissible as long as you take good care of them.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
