Letters: Four stolen parrots


Dear Parrots magazine,

Four stolen parrots

Over the evening of Friday the 12th of July 2019, our four parrots were stolen from Swallow Aquatics, East Harling Norfolk Store. The deputy site manager closed the doors at 6.30pm and the parrots were settling down for the evening. The following morning at 8.30 am on opening the store it was discovered the birds had been forcibly taken from their outdoor aviaries. We had two African Grey Parrots, Burt and Daisy and two Blue and Gold Macaws, Albert and Lilly.

Letters: Nervous but affectionate


Dear Parrots magazine,

Nervous but affectionate

I thought I would drop a line in case this is something you can include, which might help other owners with nervous birds. Is it worth asking your readers for contributions to a hints and tips section? This can be reduced right down if you have somewhere to slot it as a tip in the magazine. I feel silly that it took me so long to resolve.

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: Parrotwood!

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: 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.
