Introduction(Letters)

Something to say? Write to Parrots magazine.All letters sent in will also now be posted in our magazine 'Letters' page.

Getting an issue off your chest can make you feel better, and there are many issues in the parrot world. Or if, simply, you just want to tell us all about something concerning your birds, here's your opportunity.

Parrot people love to hear other owners' experiences and the many other things that make us happy or, indeed, very angry.  So don't worry if your issue is controversial as we believe in a democratic system and will not 'cherry pick' letters.  As long as your letter is not obscene or libellous, it will get an airing.

Letters: Dodgy toys


Dear Parrots magazine,

Dodgy toys

I want your readers to be aware of the vast number of parrot toys that are for sale and to be aware of those that can lead to a lot of trauma. I suppose I made the mistake of looking on the internet for some toys for my beloved Orange-winged Amazon, Motzi, who is a very important part of our family.

Letters: Plumage colours


Dear Parrots magazine,

Plumage colours

I read with great interest in the September issue about Eclectus plumage and why the male and female have completely different colours. But it’s not just about Eclectus, as many other parrots in other countries are extremely colourful and in some cases it’s difficult to understand why, for example, in South America there are several different species that live in the same area as each other, but have a completely different colourings, and there seems to be no logical reason for it. Also, many other non-parrot like birds have completely different and contrasting plumage so not just confined to parrots. I suppose this is a subject that baffles many scientists and naturalists as well as the general public.

Letters: Feather plucking


Dear Parrots magazine,

Feather plucking

In the last issue of Parrots magazine I was interested to see a full page of copy concerning feather plucking in psittacines. It properly attributed poor nutrition as one cause for some parrots to self-mutilate. I do think a bit of further clarification is in order, as there are many other causes for feather plucking.

Letters: Parrot therapy


Dear Parrots magazine,

Parrot therapy

I read with great interest the article on parrot therapy in the October issue and can fully associate with the points the author was stating.

Letters: Escaped Parrots


Dear Parrots magazine,

Escaped Parrots

It is quite sad to see that most of the news stories in Parrots magazine relate to escaped parrots. In the September magazine a Grey escaped after it was taken into a field, a conure flew off as the owner took out the rubbish, a Blue and Yellow Macaw escaped when the door was opened, a Blue-fronted Amazon flew out of an open window, and a Grey flew away when the cage door was opened. Come on owners! Please be more security conscious! Your carelessness leads to death in the worst case scenario and only a lot of stress if the bird is lucky.
