Parrots magazine April 2012

Parrot Rescue Essentials - Part 1

Whenever I have brought a parrot, or another bird, into my home as a rescue, the moment I walk through the front door with the travel carrier in hand, the new arrival goes directly into quarantine. Quarantining new arrivals is a vital and important part of any avian healthcare program. But before we discuss the value of this practice in aviculture, let’s focus on some natural and holistic tools to help these birds handle the physical and emotional trauma and stress of what they’ve been through, while also helping them cope with the change of a new environment.
