We first became interested in training birds thirteen years ago when we watched a video with renowned trainer Tanni Robar doing tricks with her parrots,and a Green Cheek Conure was one of the birds she had in her group of performers! I figured if her Green Cheek could do things like fetch,basket ball,bowling,why not try it with my own Green Cheek Conure!
After we had trained four of our conures,and had private shows for our relatives,family and friends everyone thought that we should take our parrots to the school children,nursing homes, and so that's what we did and to our amazement everyone just loved our birds and we kept getting calls to come back! Then as we perfected our shows with our birds my Mom Carmela would speak about where each species came from,what they eat, the care and feeding and what to expect when owning a parrot!
Our birds have performed for The State House in Rhode Island,Elementary Schools,Middle Schools,Senior Centers,Garden Clubs, Bird Clubs,Nursing Homes,Assisted Living Homes, Birthday parties,Restaurants,Churches,Woman's Clubs,just to name a few places we've performed for!
Our message to the audience is how special these creatures of God are and that they have feelings and love to give for a long,long time! We tell everyone that comes to see our birds perform that they are going to be around for a long time and we try to teach people and children the proper care of a feathered friend and that these birds some of them have the mind of a five year old and need trust and love in their lives! We talk about our birds that have been abused like Brenna and Beau and when they were alive took them with us to show them what abuse does to a bird! We tell everyone that you can't just get a bird on impulse,play with it and then when you're tired of it push it aside and forget about it! Having a parrot in your life is like having a child who never grows up! It's a lifelong commitment of care and proper feeding,love and time out with you and interacting with you! A bird just doesn't sit in a cage all day and decorate the room or house! A bird needs to interact with their owners or as we like to tell everyone their Parronts,or else with nothing to do all day the bird will go insane,pick its feathers or scream for attention! You must always try to stimulate your parrots brain with things to do,places to see and a good diet of pellets,fresh fruits and veggies among other things! We tell the audience that seed based diets are like feeding your kids junk food all day long! And just like children parrots need lots of love and structure in their lives and clean cages,water and food,and just like children when they do something that isn't right you let them know gently,not by hitting the bird,but by showing the bird while the unwanted behavior is happening,and we tell people to learn to read your birds body language,see how his eyes are pinning or not pinning,how his feathers look,and that you teach your bird the way you'd teach your
