Letters: Tape hazards


Dear Parrots magazine,

Tape hazards

I am sure I have read before in this magazine about the hazards of tape and string getting caught up with our birds. Unfortunately, I can speak from experience when my Goffins Cockatoo decided to have fun with discarded wrapping paper and decorative tape. This was some time after Christmas last year when I still had some ribbons laying around, so I wanted to warn other owners that they must be vigilant after unwrapping presents. It was quite frightening after what we thought was some fun for him to play with the ribbon and how quickly he got into trouble.

Letters: Clean cages


Dear Parrots magazine,

Clean cages

I have read many articles and information about maintaining clean cages and how important it is to prevent infection and the spread of disease. What I find concerning is the way some cages are manufactured and how they include entrapment areas that can harbour debris and therefore possible disease.

Letters: No cheap birds!


Dear Parrots magazine,

No cheap birds!

I read your article about cheap birds in the October issue and understand how an owner can be drawn into an utter nightmare.

Letters: Knowing them better


Dear Parrots magazine,

Knowing them better

In the August issue of this magazine, I was delighted to find an article on parrots’ genomes, as this is a subject close to my heart. It seems that owners of parrots are becoming increasingly interested in what makes their birds tick, and the information contained in this article is very interesting.

Letters: Nuisance or delight?


Dear Parrots magazine,

Nuisance or delight?

Ring-necked parakeets certainly seem to be breeding successfully in Britain and can be heard with their unique calls around our urban parks and green spaces in increasing numbers. And now, the Monk parakeets seem to be following in the Ring-necks’ footsteps, with many colonies becoming established.

Letters: A better life


Dear Parrots magazine,

A better life

It was just four months ago when I was given a Jardine’s parrot that had been the pet of an elderly woman. Friends of mine new I had had parrots in the past and also knew of this lady. She was elderly and has now gone into care, so what would have to be done about her Jardine? I lost my Orange-wing six month’s ago and was at a crossroads about whether I should get another one. But this lady’s Jardine solved my conundrum, as I could not let this bird be given away to an unknown future, or be sold on.
