Letters: Hand- v parent-rearing

Dear Parrots magazine,

Hand- v parent-rearing

Once upon a time, I used to breed African Greys and then hand-reared them from hatching in an incubator. But luckily, I have realised how bad that was to deprive a pair of their breeding desires and the frustration, even the suffering I subjected them to.

Letters: Watch the youngsters!

Dear Parrots magazine,

Watch the youngsters!

It was a sunny day in the Spring of 2017 when we all went to a garden centre to buy some hanging basket plants. With my husband and myself was our eldest daughter, Lauren, who had just turned 19. It was a very busy day for the centre with many people walking to their cars with lots of purchases.

Letters: More breeding please?

Dear Parrots magazine,

More breeding please?

I have a small collection of cockatoos in an aviary which produce healthy youngsters and would like to move on to larger species.

Letters: Fruit flies

Dear Parrots magazine,

Fruit flies

I read a letter in the November issue and would say that I have also had a lot of these little flies in my house. I know they can be very irritating, but would add they are not unduly harmful to us or your parrots.

Letters: A changed husband

Dear Parrots magazine,

A changed husband

I thought your readers might like to hear how my husband was converted. It was during the summer of 2020 when what turned out to be a Senegal parrot appeared in our garden and was trying to eat from one of our bird feeders. Neither I nor my husband had any knowledge of parrots so asked the RSPB what sort of bird it was. This was when we understood it was a Senegal parrot.

Letters: Those flies

Dear Parrots magazine,

Those flies

I have an African Grey and a Blue-fronted Amazon and they get a very good diet including lots of fresh organic fruit. I have always followed the advice of many experts over the years and as a result, I think I do quite well with my two parrots.
