Keeping Your Bird Safe and Entertained

February 19th, 2018

Dear Parrot Lover,

As parrot owners we want to ensure that our parrots receive the very best care, the very best food and the very best cage. But we should try to make sure that our parrots also receive the very best parrot toy too.

Not one that just looks pretty, but a toy that is truly safe for your parrot to play with is also important.

Take a look at your parrot’s current selection of toys. Can you honestly say that they are:

Created using tanned vegetable leather

Not created using formaldehyde in any form

Created with iron or stainless steal

Not created with a zinc coating

Created with woods that are vegetable dyed

Not created using paints, lacquers, glues or adhesives

Created with chains and links that are made out of stainless steel to attach the toys to the cage bars

If you can’t, then those toys may actually be detrimental to your parrot’s health. If you are unsure how your parrot’s toys were created; or if you do not know what those toys are made of or what they are made from, don’t worry, you are not alone! Nearly every unsuspecting parrot owner in the world today cannot honestly say that they truly know how their parrot’s toys are made or where they actually come from.

A large majority of parrot toys are manufactured in foreign countries and then are imported into the USA. Although this is usually due to cheaper labor, it is also due to cheaper components too. Sadly, most of these foreign countries have rather subpar standards than what the USA has, especially when it concerns the proper health care of our cats, dogs and parrots. This means that the toys your parrot may be playing with right now may actually contain harmful components that could injure them or cause them to be ill.

Caring for your parrot should also extend to making sure that their toys are safe and healthy to play with. To this end it is important to realize that there are certain woods, dyes, chemicals, metals, and other such components, that are absolutely harmful to your parrot’s overall wellbeing, especially toys that contain Lead or Zinc as these can lead to poisoning over the long run. Parrot toys that are made with wood and leather should also be checked thoroughly as there are some woods that are poisonous to parrots, such as Apple. Leather that has been dyed with anything but vegetable dye can also cause your parrot to become ill. Therefore it is important to choose your parrot’s toys wisely.

Birds: The Curious Brain

Click here to see how easy it is to keep your bird happy

Birds are such interesting and intelligent creatures that have an almost insatiable curiosity about the world around them. In the wild they can be found flying miles in a day, discovering all sorts of new things.

In our captive lives, it is important that we still simulate our bird’s brain to a high level. We can’t offer the miles of flying per day, so we must offer a high level of toy interaction that stimulates his curiosity.

How Would Your Bird Like a NEW Toy Each Month?

As bird owners, like all pet owners, we tend to purchase a few initial toys at the pet store when we’ve popped in for new feed. Those toys are limited in their selection and aren’t always made of the highest quality, particularly for the largest of our pet birds.

Has your bird been looking at the same tired set of toys for the last few months? Has he grown tired of pushing beads, looking in the mirror, or has his perch become frayed?

While these toys were once great fun perhaps, they have lost their luster. Imagine if your bird could have access to new bird toys each and every month, and they arrived in the mail so you didn’t even have to go to the store to get them?

and receiving toys each month

Toys that are Safe!

Did you know many of those toys in the pet stores are cheaply made in other countries and use materials that can be toxic to your bird? It’s not uncommon to find materials like arsenic, lead, zinc, formaldehyde, and stained woods to name a few. These can all lead to very serious health problems in your bird and even death.

The Parrot Toys by Mail club only creates toys that are totally natural and safe with materials like coconut fiber, corn cob, oyster shells, safe leather, sisal cord, cuttle bone, bamboo, and more. These great toys are safe and fun!

To Bird School We Go!

January 23rd, 2018

Dear Parrot Lover,

Contrary to popular belief, every parrot can be trained to not only act on command, but to also talk, whistle and sing on command as well. Some parrots can even be trained to roller-skate or to play table-top basketball.

However, this all starts with basic parrot training. Knowing the best way to train your parrot can lead to a happy, well-socialized, and well-trained parrot.

Training your parrot will take plenty of patience and time. Because of this it is very important to know that how you interact with your parrot will have a direct effect on their training and future attitude. Therefore, it is best to always remain positive and upbeat, regardless of how frustrated you might be. And never, ever, yell or throw things at your parrot. Under no circumstances should you smack your parrot either! These can all lead to emotional and physical harm, and borders on animal abuse.

Keep the training sessions always short, sweet and to the point. This will help keep things interesting and fun for both of you and will avoid any boredom ruts.

Another thing not to do is to withhold your parrot’s food, either as punishment or for training. Instead, use their food, or favorite treat, as a training aid – a reward for learning a new word, a new command or even for just attempting a new trick.

After your training session is done, let your parrot go back into their cage so that he or she can rest for a little while and have something to eat and drink. You should wait between 30 minutes to an hour before bringing him or her out of their cage to start another training session. Keep these training session to 2 – 3 per day. More than that and your parrot will start to feel stressed out.

When training your parrot, remember to play with your parrot as well. All work and no play, will make your parrot resent their training. For every training session you do together, make sure you have a play session as well.

The Healthy Parrot

January 10th, 2018

Dear Parrot Lover,

It is currently estimated that there are over 5 million homes in America that have pet parrots and other birds. Even though these brightly colored and highly intelligent creatures are members of the family, they can still unwittingly pass on germs to their human family. There are a few diseases that parrots can pass onto their people:

1. Cryptococcosis

This fungus is typically found in contaminated pigeon droppings and although it is somewhat rare in pet birds, people can still contract it by inhaling the contaminated dust or if the fungus spores land inside an open wound. Parrots can become infected if there are pigeons in their environment; for example pigeon droppings on a window ledge near a parrot’s cage. People who have been contaminated with Cryptococcus will have symptoms that resemble pneumonia: coughing, fever and shortness of breath.

2. Avian Tuberculosis

Avian Tuberculosis is a disease in which bacteria is spread from birds, parrots and other creatures to people. Parrots that are infected with Avian Tuberculosis will show such symptoms as diarrhea, depression, and lethargy and weight loss. Infected animals and birds will actually shed or molt the bacteria in large amounts throughout their environments.

Although scientist are unsure exactly how Avian Tuberculosis is transmitted to humans, they do know that people get from environmental exposure to the bacteria. Those humans affected usually already have a compromised immune system. Symptoms in people include diarrhea, stomach pain, weight loss and being tired all of the time.

3. Parrot Fever

Parrot owners are more susceptible to Parrot Fever than any other pet owner. It is transmitted when a person breaths in the bacterial secretions of an infected parrot, or other psittacine bird, or from wild birds and poultry. Some parrots will show obvious signs of having Parrot Fever; while other parrots may live out their whole life without showing any symptom at all. People with Parrot Fever will experience headaches, muscle aches, fevers, chills, coughing and breathing issues. These symptoms start between five and fourteen days after the person was first exposed.

The best ways to protect yourself, your family, and your pet parrot, is to practice cleanliness and take your parrot in to see the vet for routine Annual Well Bird Exams. Remember to always wash your hands with warm soapy water after you have handled any bird, or touched their droppings. Keeping your parrot’s cage as clean as possible will also be a great benefit.

The Healthy Parrot

Long live the bird!

Parrots are a lot more delicate than they may first appear. We all know they can and should live decades. Large parrots can live anywhere from about 50-70 years. The smaller birds can even live over 2 decades. Unfortunately, captive caged birds often don’t enjoy as healthy a life and don’t reach these natural lifespans.

Some of the most common reasons a bird won’t be healthy is actually fairly preventable. Viral and bacterial infections can be prevented with proper housing and cleaning and keeping the bird’s stress levels low. Vitamin deficiency and poor nutrition can be avoided with a full, complete, and nutritious diet.

Learn to be observant

Knowing your bird and his everyday normal behavior is one of the best ways to detect a problem. Birds don’t always appear ill until they are seriously ill, but they often exhibit subtle signs that indicate poor health or disease before then. Make sure you know what is normal for your bird but also spend time with your bird and handle him to know what feels normal too.

Nutritional deficiencies can cause respiratory stress or even seizures over time. Parasites, even internal ones, can cause a bird to pick and itch at himself. Pay attention to a change in his stools and droppings. Also take note of how noisy or verbal he normally is because a drop in communication can indicate a problem too.

Training Made Easy

December 18th, 2017

Dear Parrot Lover,

If your parrot exhibits any unwanted behaviors or has any bad habits, you will definitely need to train your parrot to obey you before those behaviors and habits spiral out of control. All bad behaviors and habits can be trained out of a parrot – all you need is the proper knowhow and plenty of patience.

Training Tips:

Because training a parrot requires patience, it is important for you to only begin a training session when you are calm and relaxed.

Make sure that neither you nor your parrot will be distracted by anything, such as the TV, cellphone and other family members or pets.

Learn to read you parrot’s body language so that you can more easily identify when your parrot is stressed, and also when to avoid a bite that may be imminent. Your parrot’s body language is the only way in which your parrot can truly communicate with you. And if your parrot is too stressed out, he will not learn anything during a training session as he will be too busy stressing and being scared. If you find that your parrot is stressing, try to calm him down by offering him his favorite treat.

Always use positive reinforcement when training your parrot. As soon as your parrot does obey your command or does something, you should immediately give him a treat or other type of reward, such as genuine praise. But if your parrot is misbehaving, it is best to simply ignore his antics. Your parrot desperately wants your undivided attention, and so he will quickly learn that certain behaviors grant your attention, whilst others do not – he’ll soon learn the difference.

Never, ever punish your parrot. Even negative attention, in the form of a punishment, is still considered by your parrot to be attention and punishing your parrots will make him get used to the negative attention which can cause your parrot to continue his naughty behavior.

Always keep your parrot’s training sessions short, sweet and to the point. This is just as much for your own sanity as it is for your parrots, as parrots have relatively short attention spans.

After the training session is done, allow your parrot to return to his cage or play stand for a few minutes of quiet playtime.

Always practice patience. Just like you, your parrot has a very unique personality and this will play a large part in their training. Do not become discouraged – it will take quite a few training sessions for your parrot to understand exactly what it is that you are training him to do.

Bird Got Your Finger?

November 23rd, 2017

Dear Parrot Lover,

Just like dogs and small children, parrots also have the potential to act out and misbehave. This behavior can be tolerated if it only happens once or twice; but if it becomes habitual then you certainly have a problem.

But, just like dogs and small children, parrots can also be trained to stop their bad behavior. In fact, there are a few common ways in which parrot trainers accomplish this:

  • Positive Reinforcement
  • Positive Punishment
  • Negative Reinforcement

Don’t let these terms scare you into thinking that training your pet parrot is going to be an impossible task! By simply having plenty of patience and knowing the right techniques, you can easily train away any bad behavior.

When using positive reinforcement and positive punishment, something of value is added to your parrot’s experience. Conversely, when using negative reinforcement and negative punishment, then something of value is actually removed from your parrot’s experience.

Using positive reinforcement should always be the number one goal of any parrot training session!

However, if your parrot is a bit wilder or is a second-hand parrot that hasn’t yet gained your trust, then there may certain circumstances where using negative reinforcement may actually be in your parrot’s best interest. For example, wilder parrots and parrots that do not trust you may freak out every time you approach their cage. Therefore your parrot is automatically
placed in a negative situation because he perceives you as ‘invading his territory’. You can easily calm your parrot down by simply walking away from his cage and going into another room for a while. Once your parrot has calmed down, then you can then slowly walk back into the room and begin to approach his cage again. But stop immediately as soon as he begins to stress out. Then simply stand there and wait a few minutes until he has regained his composure before walking back out of the room. Each day you can try to walk closer and closer to his cage until he is comfortable with you being in his territory and starts to trust you. With this training scenario you are essentially teaching your parrot that good things happen when he is in a calm state of mind.

Regardless of which training method you use, make sure that you are never harming your parrot psychologically or physically as this will be detrimental to both of you.

Bird Got Your Finger?

Handling the Biting Bird

There’s nothing more painful for a bird owner than when the bird bites. Not only does it hurt your feelings, but a bird’s beak can pack a powerful bite. Depending on what kind of bird you have, it can even break your finger and at the very least, it can rip your skin.

Biting can be boiled down into one primary category: fear and/or mistrust. We don’t want to anthropomorphize birds, so it’s important to understand that he doesn’t bite because he is angry at you or jealous. Instead, something is causing him to be fearful.

Click here to learn more about birds and fears

How to Change His Fear

Within the category of fear, there is more than one level of fear. There are different values of fear. You have to conquer each level of fear in order to gain your bird’s trust and allow him to open up to you.

According to Chet Womach, the three levels of fear, from his experience, are:

1. Your bird is fearful of you getting close to him.

2. He is afraid of being touched or pet.

3. He is afraid of making contact with you.

You can see that each category is more challenging for the bird, and it’s more challenging for you to overcome. Once you do, you’ll have a bird that not only doesn’t bite you but also enjoys and trusts you.

Click here to learn strategies for handling biting

The Power Pause

The Power Pause is a technique that can be used to help overcome the first level of your bird’s fear: having you approach him. It can help calm him down, stop any lunging or biting he may do, and make him more receptive to you.

Basically, it involves systematic approaches toward your bird in levels, so that you can gradually get closer. You stop at a point where he can still be comfortable, and then he is rewarded by you backing away. He learns that he can trust you. Additionally, the training technique utilizes a clicker to help the process go faster.

There are more strategies for tackling the other two levels of fear, once you make it through the Power Pause. It isn’t a strategy for those levels. Check out a free video demonstrating just how to use the Power Pause for your bird so you can start on the first part of your bird’s fears today.

Stop the Screaming!

November 7th, 2017

Dear Parrot Lover,

If you are an owner of a pretty parrot then you most likely already know that those small little colorful creatures have a much bigger and louder voice. The more excited they get, the louder they become.

In fact, parrots in general screech, scream and shriek more than any other domestic pet. Your parrot’s screaming not only hurts your ears, but it can also decrease your chances of ever renting an apartment, having a roommate, or having your grandbabies come visit you as often as you’d

It is important to understand that a parrot screaming is a very natural thing; Parrot’s scream every day in the wild. But if your parrot screams non-stop at home then you need to try and curb that screaming as soon as you can.

Since wild parrots do scream and the screaming in and of itself is a very natural thing for parrots, therefore the screaming cannot be totally eliminated. Even in captivity, parrots resemble their wild friends and will be loudest during dusk and dawn as part of their flock mentality. This type and timing of screaming is perfectly fine, but any screaming that is too excessive
outside of these times must definitely be curbed.

Now when your parrot is screaming before getting upset with him, first become aware of exactly how you are interacting with your parrot at that very moment. Avoid rewarding his screaming by playing it into and giving him too much attention and yelling at him to be quiet. By screaming back at
your parrot to hush, all your parrot is learning is that if he screams, you’ll eventually scream back and a game of screaming will then ensue.

Instead, always try to ignore your parrot’s excessive screams and do not acknowledge your parrot when he is screaming. In fact it is best if you do not look or talk to him either and instead simply walk away from your parrot when he starts his screaming tantrum.

As soon as your parrot has stopped screaming immediately reward him with lots of praise and offer him a treat or his favorite toy to play with. Then slowly start to increase the time after he has stopped screaming before you offer him any praise or a treat. Eventually your parrot will stop screaming quicker, or not scream at all, just so he can receive your praise and attention.

A really great idea is to start a parrot diary and write down every time your parrot screams. Don’t forget to write down any circumstances that are occurring during the time of your parrot’s screaming. Do you have guests over? Is it dinner time? Is the TV on? Are you kids running around the house yelling? Soon enough you will see a pattern to your parrot’s screaming and will learn to identify your parrot’s triggers.

Another great tip to curbing your parrot’s screaming is to teach your parrot to talk instead!

Stop the Screaming!

Are Your Ears Still Ringing from the Screaming?

Oh my goodness! If you’ve had the pleasure of listening to a screaming parrot, then you know how ear splitting that noise can be. It’s even worse if you have to live with him day in and day out with no end in sight.

You may have heard that birds scream for attention or because there are spoiled. This can be true. Many birds do learn that screaming works to get attention from someone, so they continue to use the method. But, there are also many other reasons that birds scream such as if he’s in a territorial mood.

The best way to limit your bird’s screaming is to figure out just why he’s doing it in the first place.

Click here to read more about screaming parrots

Why is He Screaming so Much and What to do?

There are many reasons your bird screams. There are also many factors as to why he does it. The gooda plan to correct what he’s doing. For example:

  • You can use your bird’s body language cues to help curb his screaming if you know what to look for.
  • You can use bird toys strategically placed in your parrot’s cage in order to keep him stimulated and quiet.
  • If your bird screams when new people enter a room, he may be frightened. You can actually use techniques to help reverse this natural instinct.

Bird Tricks Up Your Sleeve

October 18th, 2017

Dear Parrot Lover,

Every pet bird owner wants to be the proud pet parent of a happy and well-behaved
parrot. But not every bird owner knows how to accomplish this. And when their
bird currently bites, scratches and screams constantly, training them may seem
an extremely difficult task.

The trick to this task is to learn how to teach your parrot in a positive
way to ensure their happiness. A happy parrot is a well-behaved and loving parrot!

Before you can expect your parrot to be happy, you need to be happy and positive
first. If you are not and you attempt a training session your parrot will immediately
pick up on your hesitation and will become nervous around you. So, keep your
cool and talk to your parrot in a friendly and reassuring voice.

Another aspect to training your pet bird is schedule a training session during
a time when your house is quiet and there will be no disruptions. Turn off the
TV or radio and make sure that you aren’t expecting any guests. Such disruptions
can cause both you and your parrot to lose the momentum of the training session.

When you are in a training session, you should be as amusing as possible with
your interactions with your parrot. You should also carefully pronounce words
and phrases. These comical antics will capture your parrot’s attention
and they will want to mimic you to join in the fun.

Keep these training sessions short, sweet and to the point. If they are too
long your parrot will become bored and irritated. If this happens, avoid the
need to raise your voice at your parrot. This will only make your parrot afraid
and more nervous. Instead, simply voice your disproval with a firm tone and
a disapproving look.

Once this point has been reached, it is time to end the training session.
Regardless of whether the session ends on a good or bad note, place your parrot
gently back on his play stand and step away. The two of you deserve a break
from each other and this playtime will be seen as a reward by your parrot for
a successful training session.

Keep in mind that every parrot has their own unique personality and so the
time it takes to train them will vary from parrot to parrot. Never rush your
parrot to learn. Let them set the pace and always be respectful of your parrot’s
space. If they do not want to come out of their cage for a training session,
then just step away and try again later. Never force them to learn.

By being happy and positive your parrot will be happy and positive too!

Bird Toy Mania

September 25th, 2017

Dear Parrot Lover,

Parrots are very intelligent beings. So intelligent, in fact, that they have the same mental capacity and intelligence as a two to three year old human child!

Just like children, these parrots need to be mentally stimulated. If they are not, they will literally go mad. They will also become increasingly destructive. But proper parrot toys also help parrots to hone their foraging skills.

But choosing the perfect parrot toy is essential to your parrot’s overall health and mental wellbeing. Did you know that parrot’s require a minimum of five toys? Each of these parrot toys should be as unique as your parrot. They must all be different colors, have different textures and, more
importantly they must each serve a different purpose.

The most important type of parrot toy is a foraging toy. When living in the wild, parrots forage for the food, but in a caged captivity environment, such as in your home, parrots do not have as much of an opportunity to forage for their food. Foraging helps to keep your both your parrot’s mind and beak very busy. Foraging toys allow you to place your parrot’s favorite treats inside them. Your parrot now has to attempt to figure out how to get their yummy treats out of the toy.

If your bird is quiet destructive whenever he is let out of his cage, and prefers to rip up your curtains, then you will certainly need to purchase a special kind of toy. This type of toy will be one that is meant to be destroyed by your parrot, such as a shreddable toy. But the time it takes your parrot to do this should be quite a while. If it takes your parrot only a few hours or minutes to destroy their new toy, then do not buy that toy again in the future. Those toys are a waste of your money.

The next best type of parrot toy is a puzzle toy. These carefully constructed toys are meant to keep your parrot happily occupied for hours. Some puzzle toys are designed to be nibbled on and even destroyed. With these toys it is important to remember that it is the learning experience that counts and not necessarily how much the toy can withstand from your parrot’s strong beak.

Other great toys to purchase are foot toys that your parrot can play with both in and out of his cage. If your parrot spends a lot of time outside of his cage, then consider buying a play gym. This free standing gym resembles a tree on which you can hang a few toys for you parrot. With branches pointing in different directions, your parrot will also be working out his feet.

Parrot toys provide your parrot with safe opportunities to explore and investigate various textures and tastes. Such toys offer many health and psychological benefits for your parrot.

Tips for a Trained Bird

September 15th, 2017

Dear Parrot Lover,

Not every parrot owner acquires their parrot as a baby or directly from a reputable breeder or pet store. Some parrot owners acquire their older parrot through a pet adoption program, or through a rehoming situation. No matter how an older parrot is acquired, they will have very special training needs.

Most likely your older parrot is more nervous being in a strange home with strange people and even stranger sounds and sights. They will typically express this nervousness through aggression that is commonly displayed by your parrot being extremely territorial of his cage or carrier.

You must have the utmost patience with your older parrot during his adjustment phase into his new home with you. This is certainly not the time to fight fire with fire! The quieter you are around your parrot and the softer you speak, the calmer your older parrot will become. Ever heard the expression “Music soothes the savage Beast”? Well, try playing some soothing music for your parrot.

Make sure that you also provide your new parrot with all of the foods that they are used to eating in their former home. If those foods can be considered to be ‘parrot junk-food’, such as foods that are heavily dyed and covered in sugar or salt, then you should also offer your parrot healthier food choices. But allow him to get used to eating different food at his own pace. Never simply replace his old brand of food with a new brand of food. Parrots need time to adjust to their food as well. Switching over too soon could cause your parrot to refuse to eat and he may starve. Sounds rather extreme, but it is sadly quite true.

You should also try to make sure that your parrot’s cage is a safe and happy haven for him. If your parrot still has his old cage, then you should clean it thoroughly and replace any broken toys, torn up ropes and whittled perches with newer and stronger ones. If you are giving your new older parrot a brand new cage, then do try to outfit with new perches and toys that are of the right dimension and size for your breed of parrot.

Place the cage in such a way that it is up against at least one wall in your house, and in an area of the house that is most often frequented by family members. Older parrots desire a sense of security and being against a wall offers that to them. The easiest way to assimilate your older parrot into the comings and goings of your family is to place them where they can feel that they are a part of your family, such as in the living room. But do not place their cage in the kitchen as fumes from certain types of pots and pans can be quite lethal to parrots.

With older parrots it is best to simply take your time in training them and allow them to actually set the pace.

Training Your Bird Can Do So Much….

When we see a parrot, we see what a pretty bird it is and think it can’t be that hard to have a bird for a pet. Well, that’s not a safe assumption! In fact, birds are great pets, if you know what you’re in for. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you can end up with a pet you can’t stand who screams at you, bites you, and generally disrupts your life.

Bird rescues are filled with birds that are no longer convenient as pets for owners who have grown tired of them. These birds can come with bad behaviors that need to be reworked before they can be adopted out.

The good news for bird rescues and bird owners like you is that any bird can be trained out of bad habits! Proper training and management can keep bad behaviors from forming altogether or can help change behaviors a bird may already have.

Does Training Do

Training helps change the relationship between a bird and his human. It develops communication between bird and human, and it can actually make your bird learn to love you.

Many mistakes in bird training are easily made by an owner, particularly if you don’t know it’s a mistake. Sometimes owners resort to mean or punitive styles of training that just don’t work and are cruel. These methods create birds that are fearful or mean in exchange.

Training should be positive and geared towards the bird. When training is done this way, a bird quickly responds and noticeable changes occur in a matter of days or weeks. Those previous behaviors of biting, screaming, or trying to harm you gradually reduce and go away.
