  Hi!
Hi Merlin, how are you? Another great book is the "Companion Parrot Handbook" by Sally Blanchard. It has info on baby parrots, but also lots of great insight into birds of all ages. Our sun conure is 8 years old and is very possessive of me-- if her "dad" comes too close, she'll try to bite him. We are working with her by having him play with her in a neutral room, away from her cage. This is going really well and she seems to be warming up to him. I think the problem is that she's over-bonded to me. Maybe this is the same dynamic between you, your daughter, and Merlin? Well, have a great afternoon!

Come visit me, Isabelle, Charlie, Xochi, Gerard & Lilly.

Hi there Merlin & friends,
Hey Merlin are you a Citron or a Sulpher Crested?
It is good to hear that i'm not the only one working with a bird that doesn't like me.
After reading "The Parrot Problem Solver" I know I will win over Corky, I've had him for 1 month today & we have overcome his cage territory issues, (as long as he is still in the cage).
Anyway thank you for the note.
Have a Great Day! :>

Come visit me, Corky.

Ceres exotic bird store, sounds fun. Do they have lots of birds? I think my Mom should get some more siblings for me. I know she wants a hyacinth macaw and a grey and a Meyers and who knows. Grandma would like a pair of Lady Gouldains for one thing and I forget what else.I am off to bed now, I shall see you tommorrow. Sleep well.

I dont know about watermelon seeds, I know pumpkin seeds are safe and sunflower seeds but grape,apple,peach,pear are poisonous. I shall have to find out, you eat hemp seeds? Dont they make street drugs from hemp? I like watermelon too but my Grandma has a honey dew because that is what my Mom likes, she did get me some bananas. I want some almonds, have you tried them a lot of the birdies love them on this site and some eat them sprouted.

Hello, I think you are rather cute. I like broccoli and also bananas have you tried those? Grapes are okay, remember get seedless, seeds are toxic to us. I like the red grapes. Have a fun-tastic day.
