Breaking the Old Rules of Parrot Behavior

Parrots magazine 150th issueBy Barbara Heidenreich

✷ My parrot does not obey the step up command

✷ My parrot quite often can be found higher than my heart, eyes and head.

✷ My parrot is not covered at night for 12 hours of darkness.

✷ My parrot does not have a separate sleep cage.

✷ My parrot does not receive an hour of undivided attention from me daily.
