Ive been there and done that. When my wife and I first got married I got into the bird thing pretty bad. A one bedroom apartment, we had two parakeets, two cockateils, two yellow canarys, 4 zebra finches, and two lady goludian finches. One of the cockateil was blind so when I let them out to play the other one would stay with the blind one so she did not fall off the couch. I think birds are fun but would be even better outside in an aviary.
