  Hi Pico
Happy Tuesday everybirdie, Sweetie here with your BOTM blog for the day. I so enjoy the blogs, I read them each and sometimes twice in case I missed anything. Such great information is available right here among our BC friends. It's been a rather eventual few days. Momma Deb was called on to take in an older Cockatoo, but through many conversations was able to keep him safely in his own home. This poor M-Too was severely plucked and sported a rather nasty hole ( self-inflicted) on his neck. His past owners moved suddenly and gave up him, and an Amazon to a fellow local rescue who deals with small species only. Hola, as he is named was fostered into a home of experienced Companion Parrot owners with no Too experience. After Momma told them about the need for blood work to test for diseases, need to have the wound treated by the Vet and to discover, if possible the reason he is plucking, Hola is now at an Avian Vet under-going treatment.
We, BC Companion Parrot Ambassadors have so much we can share, so much to give to the Avian World. So many of you have done so much to help others learn about life shared with a feathered Fid. Everytime you suggest a good food to someone eying various foods for their Parrot at home you are making a World of difference both to their Bird and also to those whom speak with. It does matter. A few shared words of wisdom can save an innocent Parrot years of neglect, or re-homing. It is better to dissuade someone getting a bird, then remaining silent. From experience I see it often here, in my forever home. People visit, and OH I LOVE THAT ONE! I always wanted one of those? What is it? Can IT talk!? Oh they certainly are told the facts no holds barred. We are loud, messy beyond words, destructive sometimes, expensive, eat only the best out-of-season fruits and can be down right nasty when upset, hormonal or angry. People leave with a new understanding of life with a Parrot. It is not all that TV version of the Macaw on the shoulder talking in cognitive sentences, or a small, flitting bird singing happily in its barred prison.
Mom says she is going to keep close tabs on Hola, so he doesn't fall through the cracks, and disappear forever. She has arranged with the very BEST Cockatoo Sanctuary she knows of in Canada to take him there to live forever. There he will be safe, cared for and loved dearly by the owner, and volunteers.
I want to encourage everyone to get involved in some small way. Some of you have done quite a lot to education people about Companion Parrots. Not everyone has that ability, but we can all offer to be an advisory, to offer help to owners through animal shelters, or a Vet office. You might be surprised how willing they are for someone to refer people to with bird problems.
PLEASE keep sharing your stories they are fabulous.

Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here on this damp, dull Monday herein Napanee, Ontariot. With less then a week left in this month, I wanted to take a brief look at a few of the blogs you left on my page to share with everyone. I have enjoyed reading all of your comments, and encourage everybirdie to share in the discussion. I was reading this morning and came across Miss Chyna's blog. It brought back many memories to me about my beginnings here in the Sky Flock. Chyna was very blessed indeed that her Momma and Daddy found her when they did. Dirty, hungry and sick she was being sold to whoever had the money to take her away. What a shame some people look at us and only see a value sign written in dollars. My story as you all know was different, but in a sense was also based on money.
Sometimes birds arrive into home with hidden illnesses, but there are a lot that were sold or given away because they were sick and their former owners did not or could not afford the money to have them treated by a Veterinarian. I am asking to see how many of you were outwardly ill when re-homed? How many were being housed in sub-standard, dirty conditions? How many of you were without food, or being given poor, low quality or incorrect foods?
My Momma Deb feels there should be standards set for those who retail Companion Parrots whether a private owner or as a business (Pet Stores, Breeders etc). In general the animal welfare laws of our countries are behind the times, lack sufficient depth to make necessary changes, and fall short in the juridical system. Laws set to protect us many times lead to fines, or a probational period of "owning or possessing an animal." Many of you may recall the tragic murder of Ozzie an CAG in Alberta Canada. Stolen from her front porch and brutally abused her murderers, three teens got away with a crime that united the Parrot World to fight for stiffer sentences,and more explicit laws to be written to protect ALL animals.
Many have shared this month that they have seen sick Companion Parrots sold in Pet Stores. Often when this fact is brought to staffs attention, they shrug it off and do nothing. Few chain stores will spend the money to take an ill bird to a Veterinarian for treatment. After all it effects their profit margin. Many times when an ill bird is pointed out it is removed from the display cage to die alone in the back of the store. Some stores even have made it their "policy" that sick animals, birds included be "humanely" killed by placing it into a box in their freezer. That is not humane, freezing to death, alone in the dark. Some stores have admitted that they are told by "head-office" that this is how they are to treat sick animals in the store.
Bird Channel members are a small group, but we have a voice to cry out for changes. We are not a commodity. We are loving, feeling, sensitive Creatures that deserve respect, care and to be loved for who we are!

  Hi Pico buddy
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here on this Memorial Day long weekend. I again must say I am sorry for missing yesterday but Momma Deb had to visit a very talented Indian Ringneck named Max to clip his nails for his Momma. Problem is to get there was a very long drive across country. Needless to say Max looks great, and to make up for the nail grooming he received a Chuey's Chewable Bird Toy Creations, round peg boards to play with.
Max's Mom had contemplated adding another fid to the household. However after talking to my Momma she has decided to keep on loving Max and an pass on adopting another Parrot. Max is quite spoiled, and very well cared for and love. I doubt he would have been any to happy to see another Companion Parrot moving in on his home territory.
The conversation over lunch drifted to the topic of Parrots of course. Max's Mom had recently watched a television commercial telling people to Adopt! Don't Shop! for a Companion Parrot. She had never seen the commercial before and it caught her off guard, but also made her begin to think. She does not recall the name of the Rescue other then it was in the USA. How wonderful it would be if Rescues could come together to finance, through donations and Corporate sponsors television advertisements or magazine advertisements encouraging Adoption of Parrots over buying from a store/breeder/bird Mart etc. Companies advertise to cause consumers to purchase brand "A" over brand "B". I am certain it would work on potential owners of Companion Parrots in like manner. If even one Parrot was adopted from each Rescue what a difference it could begin to make.
Parrot ownership ( ugh, I dislike that term) is a privilege, not a right. When the World begins to realize this truth, we Parrots will begin to gain the respect we rightfully deserve. Our friendship can not be purchased, forced from us or bullied out of us. We are wild flying Creations that were meant to spend our days being Parrots, not a cage ornament or room accent. While on FB today I saw someone's cool off-handed comment to a Parront who has just lost a fid. Suggesting she buy another to replace her baby. It is sad to think this person is someone who has a bird. Love from a Companion Parrot can not be purchased with all the money in the World. You have to earn it, on our terms.
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION; Please share with us one or two of the hurls you encountered when first bringing home your fid(s). Also how about some of the best, most touching moments as well. The greatest over-coming moment when you just knew you and your Fid were happily bonded for life!

  Hi Pico
Happy, healthy Friday to everybirdie. It's looking to be a great long-weekend for all my BC friends in the US. I am very delighted by the responses you are sharing with us. I hope everybirdie takes the time to read them too. There is a lot to consider when it comes to sharing your home with a Companion Parrot. When my Momma Deb started with birds, there was so little written about them it was a hit or miss situation when it came to care, housing and health. Today, with the internet at our finger tips, and countless books on various species, self-educating is a joyous and necessary component to be availed by all. We never know it all, and learning is a life time effort. Everyday with a Companion Parrot offers opportunities to observe or learn something new and valuable.
Many of us wish to adopt a new fid into our homes, hearts and flocks but there are so many considerations beyond species to work through. I must say this topic was brought to me by our dear friend Eva Kline of the famed K K Koral. It is something we need to look at when thinking of the addition of a brand new flock member in an established flock. That is the dreaded "quarantine" .
It would be the very rare home that can provide us with "IDEAL" conditions to quarantine an incoming bird. So with this knowledge what can we do? and what is not ok to do? To correctly quarantine a new Parrot you need a room, that is supplied with it's own source of air, preferably filtered intake and exhaust. Many Avian diseases are air-borne. Simply separating a new Parrot from the flock within the same household does not prevent contamination and disease spread through the air, air vents and whenever the door is opened to care for the new comer. The false belief that changing your clothing, shoes etc after caring for the new comer WILL NOT prevent the spread of disease.
By definition all quarantine of Avians is to be done in a building separate from ALL other birds in a flock. It must have it's own air filtration system to prevent spread of airborne disease particles and be tended by someone who does not come into contact with other Parrots during the quarantine period. Separation of the flock and new comer by floors within the same home is not considered fully quarantined. Although changing clothes, shoes and showering before entering and after being in contact with the new fid will work greatly to help stop cross infection.
The recommended method of quarantine suggests that all incoming new flock members have TWO sets of blood testing done at intervals advised by your Veterinarian to screen for Avian diseases. However, unless the Parrot is shedding a virus, a false negative can occur.
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION: what other suggestion do you have for bringing home that new flock member?

Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here this cool, but sunny Thursday. I apologize for not getting this blog out to you yesterday but we care having serious problems with BC right now.
It is definitely a good sign that so many have made long-term arrangements for us fids. It is something humans don't like to think about, death and being away from us, but since so many of us are very long-lived it is vital we all are provided for. A recent incident set this fact out from all othrs when one of our own BC friends was rushed to the hospital unconscious. There was talk prior to this eventful day about having contact numbers but the other person delayed to provide them. When the situation happened there was no one to call to care for the two fids left int he apartment alone. This could have been all avoided with proper per-planning.
At the very least everyone should take the time to list all their fids in a notebook. Including their ages, sexes, and every important fact about each one including foods, care facts and anything else that would matter should we be unable to provide for them. This notebook should be placed in a safe location; easily found by someone in a stressful situation. Tell family, friends etc where to find the book, or if you have a "care-provider" designated make certain they are aware of it and where to find the notes. Have contact numbers included for any family, friends etc and your Veterinarian.
In this situation mentioned we were able to work from Canada in behalf of our American friend. The birds were cared for by a close friend. The whole situation could have been smoother, and less stressful on our part with the necessary information in advance. Stop to imagine if things were different and no one was notified to care for the bird for the week their owner was hospitalized. Not a pretty thought. Sometimes we figure that family knows how to care for our fids. But in an emergency do they really know everything they should? In the event of our death, who will take care of the fids? Do these individuals know this in advance? Many times Companion Parrots are left to people who do not really want them and they end up sold, given away or handed over to a rescue to "deal with". As a Parrot lover and Parront we are responsible for their welfare even in our absence.
Having a living will, or a notarized paper telling all the details relevant to our flock will save alot of guess work later on for those responsible for our estates. We will have the peace-of-mind knowing we have placed our baby's into caring, informed hands and provided for their future without us. No one likes to dwell on death, but once we take care of this most important part of "ownership" of a Companion Parrot(s) we will be able to continue to enjoy every day we have here on Earth with them. Up dates to the notebook are important. Noting any behavior changes, issues or medical problems as they occur is also helpful for their future care-giver.

Good morning to everybirdie. Sweetie here with our first blog of the week. I have been enjoying this Canadian long weekend to the max. Warm weather, sunny skies, what more could a bird hope for? Maybe anew toy to chew perhaps?
Your responses have been very interesting and informative. Information sharing is after all what BC is all about. When a group of devoted bird lovers get together for any cause, things just have to happen for the better. Bird Channel consists of a wide mix of people and birds from around the world with many common interests but our passion for Companion Parrots is the foremost. The coined phrase crazy-bird ladies/men couldn't be more true then for those on BC.
I have always believed that the Bird Channel members have the power to bring change in the Parrot owning community. We can impact others through our one to one education. Even telling a stranger not to buy "brand A" for their own Parrot is sharing our knowledge and could make a life-changing benefit to even one more Parrot. It has been very encouraging to read the many ways each of you have helped spread the word. It is unfortunate that many have no Parrot Club close by or Rescues in their close vicinity. That does not lessen our ability to be true Parrot Ambassadors right in our own home towns. It is surprisingly easy to strike-up a conversation about Parrots with almost everyone.
It has made me one happily little bird to read how many have spoken to someone in a store about Parrots, even when you got "the-look" for it. When we share exactly what it means to be a Parront, it gives others something to consider before spending their hard earned money. You might just save a Parrots life too. Something we must all remember though. Not all re-homed Parrots are unwanted. Sometimes it becomes in the bird's best interest to re-home them. Not all Companion Parrots found in rescues are there because they are unwanted, sometimes it is quite to the opposite. They were loved so much that the former owner knew they could not keep their beloved friend for various reasons. It is easy to loose sight of this truth in light of the vast numbers found in Rescues and shelters.
In a perfect World all Parrots could remain in their first home forever, or until their owners go to the Rainbow Bridge. In the real World life changes, sometimes quite quickly, almost over-night forcing surrender of pets that are dearly loved. It becomes a heart-breaking situation when owners have no options left, and no where to turn but to a rescue to take in their best buddy.
NOW FOR TODAY"S QUESTION: what permanent plans do YOU have in place for your fids, should something happen to you? What advice would you give someone in this respect?

Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here on this Milonga Saturday with today's BOTM blog. The questions are tough ones, but ones that every responsible Parrot owner needs to ask themselves. The Companion Parrot crisis is growing at an alarming rate. All one need do is go onto any on-line site that sells Parrots to see the mass number of unwanted adults for sale, or visit any credible Rescues site to view the "for Adoption" profiles to get an idea of the numbers available in need of loving, forever homes.
The ideas shared by your Parronts are greyt. Filled with lots of helpful ideas, and insights. We all can contribute in one way or another. The variety is endless. Those who can speak to groups can arrange visits to schools, community groups, church groups where ever people gather togetehr to talk about their Parrots, their care and what is truly involved with having a Companion Parrot. You'd be surprised how easy it is once you start to talk about the love of your life, US!
As Finnegan's Momma has said, many Parrot Clubs already do visitations & social information displays. If you are a member of a club that doesn't, suggest it, and volunteer to help by attending with your Fids. There are a lot of areas in the USA, Canada and abroad where Parrot Clubs do not exist. Perhaps you could begin one, by posting notes at Pet Food Stores, Bird Stores, Veterinarian offices and other places people will see them. Finnegan's Momma has offered to assist anyone wishing to start up a club and it is an awesome way to connect not only with fellow bird-lovers but to out-reach into the community.
Cori and Boo Boo's Mom, as well an many others have the more direct approach of one to one information sharing, taking advantage of opportunities that present themselves to educate others in proper care and feeding. This is one opportunity we all can take part in. My Momma uses every chance she gets. Sometimes the information is not happily received but often times the listener will go away with a gem of insight they might never have received in any other way.
For the very creative and talented, Dixie and his flock have until recently both educated and enlightened audiences with their tricks and antics that catch the attention of all, leaving a wondrous opportunity to educate listeners to the care, training, and requirements of Companion Parrot Parronting. What better way to keep someone's interest then to show them what us Parrots are capable of? I am certain Dixie's Momma Rose would gladly help with some pointers for someone interested in starting to train their own fids to perform. Not only do the Parrots have fun, but you can reach a large mixed group of people this way!
Do you enjoy writing? Offer to write an article or more for your local newspaper, Parrot Club as a hand-out that can be left in Pet Food Stores etc willing to give them to new potential owners, the possibilities are endless.

  Hi Pico; I need your votes daily to win BOTM
Hi everyone, Sweetie here once more with our BOTM blog for this hot, sunny Friday. Your responses have been very enlightening, informative and up-front. The subject of unwanted Parrots and euthanasia is a sensitive, and loaded subject. Like all other questions I have asked, this one too has no wrong or right answer. Regardless of the answer one gives, the truth is we are in the midst of an unwanted Companion Parrot Epidemic. In 1990, The USA passed a Wild Bird Conservation Act - Banning imports of CITES listed birds, eliminating the world’s largest market. This seems to have been the catalyst for breeders to grab up all available Parrots and force them into for-profit breeding programs. What is it that causes mankind to crave to dominate everything within reach?
A great number of Companion Parrots found in rescues are by-products of this influx in captive bred birds. The ban on importation has done very little to curb the capture of Wild Parrots both in Central and South America, Africa and other continents through out the World. Wild Caught Parrots arrive in the USA and Canada via Europe. The European Union is the greatest importer/exporter of Wild Captured Parrots. That "imported" Congo Grey in the store is likely a bird stolen from it's flock in the wild. In many nations there are still legal "capture-limits" in place, allowing Parrots to be caught for the pet-trade market. A very high percentage of these still end up in the USA. All this adds to the pressing problem of an already over-loaded market filled with unwanted Parrots needing new homes.
Some have suggested building extensive free-flight aviaries where these Parrots could live out their lives as closely as possible to being free. However, there arises a question of potential risks to native Parrots or wild-birds species from avian diseases such as PDD, PBFD and others. Many of the deadliest diseases are also very difficult to diagnosis in living specimens. Although it would be ideal if the unwanted Parrots could be housed safely in aviaries that afforded freedom, there again arises the question of finances, both for the building of these flights,and for maintenance, staff to care for and protect them from harm. and on-going medical care.
No matter how we look at the situation there are no definitive answers to the growing problem. No matter how many laws were imposed, there will be people who go around them. In every area of society there are those who live above the laws. The answers lie within us, the bird-loving populous, to educate potential owners every chance we get, to mentor new owners if possible, and to refuse to be quietly on the side-lines when issues of abuse or neglect comes up.
NOW FOR TODAY"S QUESTION; what can YOU do to help the UNWANTED Parrots? How can YOU start to educate others in proper care and training of a Companion Parrot?

  Hi Pico
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here on this awesome sunshiny Thursday. As there are no "right or wrong answers," they are all amazing and honest. Clearly Government involvement with us bird's lives will spell MESS. Somehow when the law-makers get togetehr to "fix' a problem they tend to create a whole pile of new ones, often worse then the original problem ever was. We are of a common agreement that hoarding is a secretive and often undetected situation. It occurs in every community across the globe.
As Pearl and Silver said the number of Companion Parrots is less important then whether they are well cared for, feed and cleaned. Whether one has one or one hundred fids to care for, the bottom line is "how well are they cared for? How many care-givers are looking after them?" Sad as it might be there are great homes with one Parrot and awful "house's of horror" with one. Just as human parents come in bad and good, so too do Companion Parrot owners. A stay at home Parront can easily look after a large flock, giving each time, cleaning, feeding and loving them all. It must remain a personal decision where to draw that line as far as numbers go. One person can become over-whelmed by one Parrot, where someone else can handle the ins and outs of daily life with fifty. We all need to be honest with ourselves, being truthful about how much we truly can handle on an on-going daily bases. Face it, all Parrots can become a handful at times, just like human children.
The general consensus is that placing regulations on Parrot ownership at best will be a band-aid approach to a difficult to manage situation. Cori and Boo Boo brought up a generalized truth, " many hoarders take in the animals and birds in the first place because they don't want them to be killed or abused. For some reason just keeping them alive they feel they are doing a good job without any thought to the quality of life of the animals.Then what happens, these people may become ill and no longer able to care for the animals and no one helps them because no one knows they have so many and then the animals start dying and at this point the people won't accept what they have done."
Parrot Rescues are busting at the seams with unwanted Parrots being surrendered. Some have been forced to turn away Parrots for lack of place. This problem continues to grow as our present "throw-away" society dumps off anything they deem, "difficult, too much money or work" without any clear solution. Many of these displaced Parrots are sold or given away to anyone who will take them. The former owner doing no screening, no educating, rather just glad to be rid of the "problem."
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION: With many credible Rescues over-filled should they CONSIDER euthanizing sick, overly-aggressive Parrots to make room for others to enter their facilities? What other possible solutions could be employed to protect the unwanted?

  Hi Pico
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?

  Hi Pico
Hello everyone, Sweetie here with today's BOTM blog. I musts ay that your responses are very educational, thought-provoking and hitting that old nail right on the head. We, Companion Parrots are definitely at the mercy of humans once we enter the world of captivity. It is so sad to think of the horrors many Parrots suffer from hatching to an early death in the name of profits. Sam shared a very compelling account of just such cruelty and suffering, and was an eye-opener to the realities around the Parrot Breeding Industry. Sadder still is that one of the USA's leading Parrot food producers has one of the worst kept breeding facilities. Parrots of all sizes, cramped into dirty, dark and over-crowded buildings. Bred and kept solely for testers of their newest pellets, and profits from their offspring. Just like our dog and cat foods, all products are tested on living creatures for quality, effectiveness for what it was made for, i.e. breeding formulas, maintenance etc. and over-all health after specific periods of usage.
We all agree that something needs to be implemented to control the breeding and mass production of Companion Parrots. Parrots seem to be brushed under the table when laws are debated for "Companion pets" with the focus on dogs, cats and livestock taking the forefront. It is shocking to learn the number of Companion Parrots from Budgies to Macaws that are abused, neglected and abandoned nationwide annually. Most of the better well-managed Parrot Rescues are at capacity, some being able to add facilities to handle the overflow of the unwanted being surrendered. Most are struggling to take care of those in their care as finances are slow at coming, but the Parrots keep arriving, many needing extensive Veterinarian care due to neglect or blatant abuse by former owners.
If Bird-only stores were licensed to sell Parrots, and General Pet Stores were no longer allowed to do so with the addition of mandatory staff attendance of seminars and proper training that they passed on to potential buyers some control might begin to arrive on the breeding of mass numbers of birds yearly. However it is erroneous to believe that all birds sold in Pet Stores come from "Parrot-mills". Many are purchased from reputable breeders who produce carefully planned clutches.There are both good and bad Pet Stores, including Bird Only stores.
NOW FOR TODAY'S QUESTION; If the governments of your country were to impose laws for keeping Parrots would you willing attend classes on Parrot husbandry and training? If the new law(s) were made for ALL OWNERS not just new owners would you support these laws willingly?
Dog and Cat by-laws normally limit the numbers per household. Those above these limits needing to apply for a "Kennel-License", do YOU think owners of Companion Parrots should also have limits and require special permits to own above that limited numbers? DO YOU think licensing ownership could improve the situation for unwanted Parrots?

  Hi Pico
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?

  Hi Pico
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie once more with today's BOTM blog. I want to thank everyone who stopped by, especially those who have shared their past with us.I hope every parront will take the time to read these interesting and heart-moving accounts of how their fid(s) joined their lives. We Parrots are all so unique and individual both in our personalities and in our relationships to our human caregivers. What I hope to do this month, as the days pass is to begin an active, open discussion about s wonderful, fascinating and sometimes difficult Parrots.
Whatever means we took to join our now forever homes, as varied and interesting as they all are, the one factor that remains common is, "none of us were born to live within the human environment." Sharing our days with humans was not a consideration when we were first created, and often times this factor brings with it untold challenges, conflicts and joys for both the owner and their wonderful, independent and awesome companion Parrot. My hope is that dialogue we can share these moments, thereby helping one another grow, over-come and expand in our relationships with one another.
We will look at, and talk about various Parrots and their loving Parronts, how they came together and how they have over-come problems; road-bumps along the way to developing that mutual trusting relationship. Even those who arrived into their families as weanling babies had obstacles that had to be faced and worked through. Since no parront has arrived yet at that place where never a new challenge or problem shall come along, we can help one another to forge through these birdie-barriers with renewed confidence.
My Momma Deb has over forty years of bird-related involvement, yet daily things come up that are a "first" for her. As a writer Advocate for Flockcall.com she is able to share her day to day observations with others in the hopes that someone will gain a tiny morsel of wisdom that will help them with their own Companion Parrots. I have been a challenge to her. Although only two years old there was and still is a communication problem; a language barrier that has slowed my transition to my new home. The problem is not my failure to learn English, but her lack of knowledge of another language which I grew-up with. Momma Deb has had to re-think her approach to these several times, and after many hit-miss attempts has worked out a solution to our understanding. It is this sort of thing that I want to have us share with one another. What works for you might just work for someone else.
Please, feel free to continue to write about how you came to be in your current Companion Parrot home. TODAY'S QUESTION: is simple but important: WHAT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT CHALLENGE YOU, the PARRONT, had to overcome with YOUR new fid? and HOW did you OVERCOME IT?

  Hi Pico
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?

  Oatie and Ipo wake Makana just before midnight and tell her she has an appointment. She asks what kind of appointment could she have in the middle of the night? They just smile and tell her she must hurry. So she runs after them and stops when she sees Sophie and Pimer in the shuttle but Oatie and Ipo pulls her aboard and makes certain she's secured as it takes off. Her eyes get bigger and bigger as she watches the castle get closer. They land and as she steps out behind Sophie and Pimer she gets her first look at the red carpet unrolling before them and Oatie gives her a push. She steps on the carpet and walks between birds as she enters the castle. She sees Queen Angel sitting on her throne and an empty seat next to her. She curtsies to the Queen and finds herself lifted up and placed on the seat next to her. She feels a crown placed on her head and her frother and sisters honor her then move aside as the other birds greet and congratulate her on becoming BOTD! Queen Angel leans over and whispers, "You're supposed to tell them to start the party." "OH! LET THE PARTY START!" Angel hides her laughter as she sees the big smile on Makana's beak. Makana is so glad she was able to get some sleep so she could enjoy this party.
She stands up and everybird looks her way, "Um, I want to thank each and every one for this honor. Now we can party" With much laughter, everybird does just that.

  Hi Pico
Howdy Cowbirdies, Trail-Boss Chuey here with today's blog. I am pleased to that most have rounded up their cow-pony and have packed their supplies and bed roll. Today we will saddle up and ride to the outer pastures to gather the last stragglers of our herd and bringum' into the corrals. I wanta tell ya a little about the history of the cattle drives, and get ya familiar with our herd of Texas Long-Horns.
In 1874, Captain John T. Lytle and several cowboys left South Texas with 3,500 head of longhorn cattle and a herd of saddle horses. Five years later, the route Lytle cut out of the prairie to Ft. Robinson, Nebraska, had become the most significant and traveled cattle trail in history- The Great Western Cattle Trail. Though less well known than the Chisholm trail, the Great Western Cattle Trail was longer in length and carried cattle for two years longer than the Chisholm. The Great Western Cattle Trail saw over seven million cattle and horses pass through Texas and Oklahoma to railheads in Kansas and Nebraska - an important factor in developing the cattle industry as far north as Wyoming and Montana.
The Texas Longhorn, one of the state's most iconic symbols, has been hoofing through Texas history for centuries. This distinctive breed of cattle played a vital role in Texas' heritage, and the state maintains a herd of traditional longhorn, allowing residents and visitors to experience these graceful animals first-hand. Long-horns are ornery, powerful cattle, well equipped to life on the rugged Texas wastelands. Adorned with massive pronged horns, LongHorns are capable of protecting themselves from predation. Hardy, and muscular they easily traveled the trails from pasture to stockyards with minimal losses on route. A word of warnin' to my trail hands--never get between a cow and her calf.

The Great Western Trail traversing this area with it's origin at Bandera, Texas, just to the NW of San Antonio, about 450 miles south of the Red River, and it's destination of Dodge City, Kansas, about 45 miles north of Indian Territory. Some historians called the trail the old Doan Trail, because it crossed the Red River at Doan's crossing. We will be heading north on the trail into Wyoming.

Well, Let's header on out boyz and girlz, let's get them dawgies corralled so we can hit the trail at sunrise. Tomorrow we'll be dividing into our positions with the herd and remuda of horses. We'll need eight scouts to ride ahead to check on waterin' holes and signs of rustlers.

YEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAW, Ride'm cowbirdies

hugs and kisses Trail boss
