Letters: Breeding parakeets

Dear Parrots magazine,

Breeding parakeets

Perhaps I am a bit out of the box being 37 years old and someone who hates modern day technology. I do have a smart phone, but use it only on rare occasions when needing a phone and don’t want arthritic thumbs when I get older!

Letters: Future for breeders?

Dear Parrots magazine,

Future for breeders?

I read with great interest in the August issue a letter by a frustrated reader telling how his son is always glued to his smart phone and iPad. I share his frustration as I also have a young son aged 15 who, not only is he glued to his phone, but walks around with it right in front of him while talking. It’s amazing that he hasn’t so far bumped into anything and hurt himself, especially when walking outside.

Letters: Great Lories!

Dear Parrots magazine,

Great Lories!

It was a delight for me to read Rosemary Low’s article on lories in the last issue.

Letters: Getting a second bird

Dear Parrots magazine,

Getting a second bird

I have had an African Grey for nearly 10 years and have always felt he (we were told when we bought him that he was a ‘he’) was feeling lonely. He has always been friendly and let’s both me and my husband handle him. But of course, most of the time he sits on his own in his cage and seems less bright. So we considered getting him a ‘friend’. We thought about this for a very long time, but had never bought another Grey.

Letters: Spotted some storks?

Dear Parrots magazine,

Spotted some storks?

It was recently when travelling on a main road in the south of England, one of my children shouted out: “What is that bird Mummy?” I was driving so had to concentrate on the road, but I did see it as it flew right in front of us. I’m sure it was a heron although I did remember an article in the January issue of Parrots magazine that featured storks sharing nests with Monk Parakeets, although no sign of any Monks!

Letters: Future of hobbyists?

Dear Parrots magazine,

Future of hobbyists?

I’m sure I am not alone when I say I’m fed up with my youngest son glued to his mobile phone and iPad and not seeming to be interested in anything else.
