Letters: The Marmite parrots

Dear Parrots magazine,

The Marmite parrots

I read with much interest in last month’s issue (April 23) about the Marmite Parakeets that are colonising in a number of countries. I assume by using the term ‘Marmite’ the insinuation is that you either love them or hate them, hence the Marmite product of the same persuasion. However, I love Marmite!

Letters: Hand- v parent-rearing

Dear Parrots magazine,

Hand- v parent-rearing

Once upon a time, I used to breed African Greys and then hand-reared them from hatching in an incubator. But luckily, I have realised how bad that was to deprive a pair of their breeding desires and the frustration, even the suffering I subjected them to.

Letters: Not aggressive

Dear Parrots magazine,

Not aggressive

I had heard quite a few comments that Scarlet Macaws can be quite aggressive and don’t make very good pet companions. Well, I had my eye on a Scarlet Macaw at a garden centre that I visit regularly and each time this macaw grew on me.

Letters: More breeding please?

Dear Parrots magazine,

More breeding please?

I have a small collection of cockatoos in an aviary which produce healthy youngsters and would like to move on to larger species.

Letters: Watch the youngsters!

Dear Parrots magazine,

Watch the youngsters!

It was a sunny day in the Spring of 2017 when we all went to a garden centre to buy some hanging basket plants. With my husband and myself was our eldest daughter, Lauren, who had just turned 19. It was a very busy day for the centre with many people walking to their cars with lots of purchases.

Letters: Fruit flies

Dear Parrots magazine,

Fruit flies

I read a letter in the November issue and would say that I have also had a lot of these little flies in my house. I know they can be very irritating, but would add they are not unduly harmful to us or your parrots.
