Letters: Better perches


Dear Parrots magazine,

I have read a lot in this magazine about natural perches and have to admit, have not changed the dowel ones I have always had. But reading the article about feet (Parrots May 20) has somehow made me realise I should do more for my Orange-wing Amazon. I live on my own but have two excellent neighbours who always lend a hand. With their help, we managed to get some branches from another neighbour’s pear tree and got them fixed in with my Toby.

Letters: Dodgy parts


Dear Parrots magazine,

I always try to do the best for my Ducorps Cockatoo, Benny, and give him plenty of toys, but recently, we had a problem. I think I made the mistake of buying from the Internet as prices were very good, although from a supplier I had never heard of before. One of the toys consisted of a number of plastic rings of different sizes, which I thought would keep him occupied for some time.

Letters: A miracle recovery


Dear Parrots magazine,

A miracle recovery

Following my letter in the May issue about Topsy’s tumour, I feel it is important to inform readers of his recovery and fantastic improvement. After being told that he has a malignant tumour, a bloody sore on his bottom, no tail feathers or hardly any feathers at all, he has made a miracle recovery.

Letters: No more wing clipping


Dear Parrots magazine,

No more clipping

I read an article by Stephen Lavoie about wing clipping. I too have stopped clipping my bird’s wings, but for a totally different reason. I own a 28 year old Moluccan Cockatoo. His name is Max, and he is a gentle teddy bear. Usually, it takes two people to clip a parrot’s wings, one person has to hold the parrot, while one person clips the wings. He never struggled when I clipped his wings, so I never needed anyone to help me.

Letters: Obesity is a problem


Dear Parrots magazine,

Obesity is a problem

I always like to read Eb Craven’s column as he has always championed the cause for better food and conditions. His latest column on ‘feeding too much’ really rang a chord with me, as I have been trying to get a friend to change her feeding habits.

Letters: Better environments


Dear Parrots magazine,

Better environments

It’s great that EB Cravens is pointing the way towards more enlightened methods of housing our feathered friends (May 2020). Large aviaries with natural enrichment should be the norm, but as Robert McKenzie points out, too many birds still languish in miserable conditions, which prevent them from expressing normal behaviour like flying and foraging.
