Big Bird Parrot Rescue The voice of domestic parrots

Parrots are not home decorations or ornaments

Forage

They require daily interations and enrichment to maintain their health and wellbeing just like people

Locking them away in a cage is not the answer to training their 'bad' behaviours

These behaviours are their way of telling you they are scared, hungry, or just want to be left alone- they have the intelligence of a 3 year old child
They respond well to positive reinforcement, and can become extremely depressed and begin self harming when exposed to negative reinforcement

Pulling their feathers is a common practice for birds when they are stressed, depressed or anxious

Providing a rich and stimulating environment will prevent this from accouring

If you feel as though you cannot provide your parrot an environment filled with love, don't let them fly into the wild- the chances of survival are slim, as they have not learnt how to forage for food and water
This does not only affect the domestic parrots safety, it causes problems for the eco-system when non-native parrots are released into native habitats potentially destroying food sources,and spreading aviary diseases

Seek support and information from rescue groups top ensure the best interest of the animal is met

With thanks, Big Bird Parrot Rescue
