Letters: Becoming bored and anxious

Dear Parrots magazine,

Becoming bored and anxious

It was recently when I was asked to take a look at a friend’s friend’s Orange-winged Amazon that appeared to be sick as it was very subdued and giving rise for concern to its owners. They had taken on this Amazon, called Benny, from the husband’s family following the unexpected death of the elderly father-in-law. The mother-in-law was not able to look after Benny.

Letters: Must be organic

Dear Parrots magazine,

Must be organic

We all know that fruit and veg are good for all of us including our birds that provide us with all the nutrients we need for good health. And all year round, there is plenty of produce available in our supermarkets and grocery stores. So is there any excuse for not providing this valuable source of foods to our birds.

Letters: Change of scenery

Dear Parrots magazine,

Change of scenery

I was recently given an Orange-winged Amazon after its owner was taken into a care home and could no longer look after it. It came with quite a large cage and we were quite excited to have a parrot. But it never seemed to be happy and after some time there was no improvement.

Letters: Veterinary articles

Dear Parrots magazine,

Veterinary articles

I have been receiving this magazine for many years and we would from time to time be able to read articles from avian vets.

Letters: Wing clipping

Dear Parrots magazine,

Wing clipping

I was at a garden centre recently (I won’t mention where it is) that has a large pet section and in that section was an African Grey standing on a wobbly perch. Having two Greys myself I was naturally attracted to it, but what I thought was going to be a pleasant visit, turned out to be a horror show.

Letters: Grieving after loss

Dear Parrots magazine,

Grieving after loss

I remember reading in the May issue of this magazine, an article from the RSPCA how an African Grey started plucking its feathers following the death of its owner. I have witnessed something very similar when an elderly neighbour passed away and who also had an African Grey. In this case, the Grey started to act very strangely with bobbing up and down and climbing up and down in its cage, which was concerning. It’s only because I have two parrots and this man lived in the next road, which is how we became friendly parrot neighbours.
