Letters: Keeping up with IT

Dear Parrots magazine,

Keeping up with IT

I was astonished to find Parrots magazine in my local Pets at Home superstore and had no idea it existed. I have had an Amazon parrot for just over 12 years and had no idea that so much information was available. I suppose I have been living in my own little world and have just not kept up with all that is going on in the avian world. Perhaps now, I have been jolted into action and have just bought myself a computer, something I have shunned for a long time.

Letters: Clean air

Dear Parrots magazine,

Clean air

Being a sufferer of asthma and a parrot owner, I have been following any articles on clean air and how best to look after our health. Many of us live in warm double glazed houses that are airtight, but there, I think, lie serious problems. Without airflow and good ventilation, there will always be a high risk of health problems as dust will exist and possible mould spores in corners of rooms.

Letters: Extinction

Dear Parrots magazine,


An article written by the Editor, John Catchpole, in Issue 156 (Are we heading for oblivion?) prompted me to write this letter.

Letters: Unhappy with what we saw

Dear Parrots magazine,

Unhappy with what we saw

It was about a year ago when I decide to get a Senegal Parrot, as my parents had kept them for many years. So I looked in the bird press and eventually found a man who claimed he had bred Senegals, and had some really nice babies. So, with my husband, we started on the journey to this man’s house, which was about an hour way, but we decided to go this distance as he sounded so genuine.

Letters: You must walk away

Dear Parrots magazine,

You must walk away

I have spoken to many people who have given accounts of birds in shops and garden centres that looked so sad and unhappy. And many have said they had to buy the birds to ‘save’ them.

Letters: Happily ever after!

Dear Parrots magazine,

Happily ever after!

In our house, my husband and I have always been arguing, in the nicest possible way, about whether or not we should have a parrot. I have always wanted one but he has been firmly against it. Well, a funny thing happened. A friend, who lives close by, learned of an elderly lady who had a Meyers’s parrot but, sadly, could no longer look after it properly as she was now suffering with arthritis.
