Letters: Stop knocking seed


Dear Parrots magazine,

Stop knocking seed

We seem to hear so much criticism against seed diets, or even partial seed diets, but always condemning seeds as non-nutritious and not very good for our birds. On the other side of the argument, there seems to be a lot of promotion of pellets, or should we really say extruded, processed diets. I am sure lots of these processed, complete diets may well be ‘scientifically’ good on paper, but do they take into account foraging and the natural appeal for birds.

Letters: Got it!


Dear Parrots magazine,

Got it!

I have a Grey and an Amazon that have cages next to each other in our lounge and during the night everything is normally peaceful. But recently, there was a kerfuffle and when I went down, both of my birds seemed very agitated with seed husks that had flown all over the place. Nothing was out of place and this appeared to be a complete mystery why they had been clearly startled.

Letters: Visit to the Vet


Dear Parrots magazine,

Visit to the Vet

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy Parrots magazine. In a recent issue you had an article on what to expect at a veterinary visit and how to prepare.

Letters: Saskatoon berries


Dear Parrots magazine,

Saskatoon berries

Blueberries have been long promoted as a superfood for humans. Thank you to Leslie Moran for a very informative article about the benefits of feeding blueberries to your parrots.

Letters: Demanding Cockatoo


Dear Parrots magazine,

Demanding Cockatoo

I read in the April issue, Sally Blanchard’s article on manipulation which strikes great big bells with me.

Letters: The harness


Dear Parrots magazine,

The harness

When I first saw parrot harnesses advertised, I was horrified. It just seemed so unnatural for a bird with delicate feathers to have a harness strapped to it. Unlike a dog, feathers lay down in a specific order and anything that is fastened around it will ruffle up, or, even break feathers - or so I thought.
