Letters: Claiming a found bird


Dear Parrots magazine,

Claiming a found bird

I wanted to make your readers aware of what mistakes are so easily made following finding a lost bird. It was when I went to hang out some washing in my back garden that I spotted an Amazon parrot sitting on my fence. I have a conure so am familiar with parrots, but this startled me somewhat.

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.
