  Wow!
Fourteen years old - Great! Everyone in our (feathered) flock is young - under 6 years, except maybe for a couple that don't "have" an age. Our person was freaked recently to learn that although a 20-30 year lifespan is possible for birds of our type, the average is often much lower. Why?
But I don't mean to be morbid. Hope you have had a happy 14 years and that we'll all have many happy years to come. Keep up the good life! : )

  Hi Chirpy
Happy, healthy Hump-day to everybirdie. Sweetie here with today's BOTM blog. I am hopeful that everyone has read the comments posted on my page about the need for education and laws to restrict and control Parrot over-breeding and one day end the need for rescues. Your insight and shared comments are greyt and very down-to-Earth factual. I must agree that the ideas are great but the how-to is getting into the way. The need for and application of Owner educational classes was commonly agreed,but where would one begin to make this thought a reality? The fact that there are definitely many very qualified educators on Common Parrot behavior makes it a possibility, but to make the need obvious to those in change of our laws and by-laws would be a difficult task to under-take. The current animal welfare act seems to fall short where Parrots and domestic exotics come in. Unless the "animals" are in definite distress from abuse, obvious neglect of care MOST if not ALL investigators know very little to nothing about Companion Parrots.
A point at hand; was the case a while back when someone visiting saw our frother SKY who has a damaged wing that was broken years ago but due to his abuser's lack of care it was left to mend on it's own: thus it is deformed, and Little Angel my plucked, but very happy and healthy fister who has almost no feathers. The visitor reported them and investigators visited. They were going to pressure to have both Sky and Little Angel removed from our flock and euthanized. Heck, killed more correctly. When word went out to our BC family, the OSPCA was bombarded with texts, emails, and calls. These same investigators did not know a Cockatiel from a Budgie, but made the assumed decision that both Parrots were unable to enjoy a quality of life. Point being these two persons were responsible for deciding the welfare for two Companion Parrots, yet made very incorrect assumptions. So, before any new laws to protect us could be implemented, those currently responsible for enforcing them would need extensive training on what is and isn't acceptable behavior and husbandry for hundreds of very differing species of Parrots.
As Dixie's Mom Rose brought up, when someone must spend the whole day just cleaning and feeding the Fids, then it is obvious the number is too many to properly keep. As others also pointed out, there is a fine line between keeper and hoarder. The only difference being the keeper does their best to care for, clean, feed and water everyone everyday, and is willing to pay for Veterinarian care, while the hoarder becomes over-whelmed with sheer numbers, the cost of food, amount of work involved and burns-out leaving no one to care for the suffering Parrots.
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION: what types of regulations should be put into effect to prevent the hoarder-syndrome? Besides limiting numbers kept, is there a way to prevent it in the first place? Would anyone with more then a specified number having inspections help?

Come visit me, SKY, Little Angel, jesse & Queen Sweetie, Thank-you friends for BOTM.

  Hi Chirpy
Good Monday morning to all my BC friends and their awesome Parronts. Your blogs are amazing, they bring tears and smiles of joy as you share your thoughts and opinions with everyone. I love reading them and I am keeping them on file as they are that inspiring. I truly hope everyone is taking the time to read the blogs. They are so filled with honesty, open thoughts and powerful ideas. Certainly in the end we all will be empowered to become Ambassadors for Companion Parrots. Some very intense facts are being brought up that can help bring about a change. Most agree that the weight of responsibility should fall upon the shoulders of the breeders who produce the innocent chicks who may one day be abandoned on the doorstep of a Parrot Rescue.
As many as there are involved in the breeding of Parrots, we must not loose sight of the truth that there are some really great, very knowledgeable and devoted individuals selling baby Parrots. As with anything that involves the potential to make money, the bad often takes the lime-light over the good. Research has revealed that some of the worse offenders are not "back-yard" breeders but facilities owned by Nationally known Parrot food producers. My research has shown that the average "breeder" becomes involved as a hobbyist and remains involved for an average of five to seven years. There remainder make up two very different groups. Group one, a smaller group are those who are devoted to their Parrots, spending money on quality foods, correct caging and Veterinarian care. They make little if any profit and are motivated by their love of the birds, and a desire to create awesome companions. The educate buyers,and will take back any unwanted bird at any point in their lives. Sadly, the second Group makes up the "commercial" breeders. Budgies are often reared in large pens where babies are netted out at predetermined periods. Large Parrots are kept in pens with little to do besides reproduce. Cockatoo males often become so stressed they maul or kill their mates, something unheard of in the wild. To stop this, beak mutilation is used to remove the powerful bite potential. When someone is willing to keep their Parrots in these conditions how willing will they be to educate owners? Stiffer control laws employed by Governments may correct the over-breeding and abuse, but they must be enforced to do anything to help the problem.
Stores should be required to provide "per-purchase" classes for new owners. How many Pet Store staffers actually know much about the birds they sell?
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION; Do you think making and enforcing laws for "breeder-facilities" would help the problem of unwanted Parrots? Would it be " feasible" to require ALL PET STORES that sell Companion Parrots to HAVE to provide MANDATORY per-purchase educational classes? Should those involved with the sale of Companion Parrots be required by law to take classes or do a written test to show they are knowledgeable about them?

Come visit me, SKY, Little Angel, jesse & Queen Sweetie, Thank-you friends for BOTM.

  Hi Chirpy
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here. I am May's BOTM candidate and wish to ask for your participation in this month. I want to talk about US. The BC birdies, our flockilies and our homes, and most of all how we got to be there. Now, before you decide that isn't fun, just wait and see. There are so many BC birdies, and each of us have our very own past history. We all began somewhere, but today we live and are loved exactly where we are at this very moment. The question is "How did you end up where you are?"
This is my story which many of you already will recall. I was born in Nova Scotia, Canada in 2013. I was purchased as a birthday gift for my former owner who was turning sixteen at the time. She had exact requirements she wanted in her new friend. She wanted a girl, and it had to be a blue-Crowned Amazon. The search was on for a baby to fit these requirements and after extensive on-line hunting her Mom found me and my sister for sale from a breeder several provinces away.
At three months old I arrived in Toronto, Ontario and met my new owner and her family for the very first time. It was instant love and I moved into their home and hearts right away. I was like a little sister in this family of three.
Because I am a rescue, My new forever Momma Deb does not know all that took place beyond here, except for the information that was shared when I was surrendered to my Momma Deb. I was obviously well loved, and spoiled. I would lay for hours on my back in their hands, snuggled and kissed and I loved it. My hatchday is April 13th, so on that day we had a party, and there are photos of me with a birthday cake and hat on. Sadly on April 23 of 2014 I fell or some how broke my leg while my owners were away at work and school. When they arrived home they found me laying on the cage floor, with a clean break. I had broken my leg bone in half, and was unable to climb or stand.
I was taken to a Vet who examined my leg and confirmed it was severely injured and would require surgery to put pins in to aid in healing. Unfortunately due to communication problems and lack of finances they were unable to do this operation then, when it would have fixed my broken leg. They tried to help me, as best they could, by taping in with Vet wrap but unfortunately did more harm then they realized. In desperation I was given to my Momma Deb who promised to do everything she could to help me. My parents gave Momma Dr "Z"'s name and number, where I had gone that first evening. He agreed to see me, and do what he could. When Momma Deb removed the wraps at his advice, she knew it was not good. My leg was dying because of incorrect wrapping. Dr "Z" operated on my leg and was forced to amputate it at the hip. THANKS to all our BC friends who helped pay for this surgery I am alive and healthy today.
"HOW did you get to be in your home?
