A beautiful parrot can be a heartbreaker

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Dear Parrot Lover,

Parrots are extremely intelligent creatures that can pick new words quite quickly. Most parrots even have the ability to use these words at the most appropriate times.

If your parrot already knows a few words, you may want to train him to respond verbally to questions that you ask him, as this will help to gradually increase their vocabulary. However, you should first teach your parrot to actually imitate your desired response or answer first. Remember, to always engage your parrot in a conversation that actually satisfies his need for socialization.

As soon as your parrot says something, make sure that you give him plenty of praise, and then you should repeat the word aloud and try to use it in various sentences and phrases. This will help your parrot to hear the word being repeated in different contexts.

When attempting to have conversations with your parrot try to stick with talking back and forth about things that are important to your parrot, like their food or toys.

Once you are confident that your parrot has mastered the correct response, you can start a conversation with your parrot by asking him the question. Remember to pronounce your words eloquently, so that your parrot can easily pick up on the sounds. Your parrot will learn vocalizations over time.

As soon as you feel that your parrot understands the questions being asked and can repeat them back to you, you can then prompt your parrot to speak the desired response. Be sure to reward your parrot whenever he says the correct answer.

Both food and attention are seen as desired rewards by parrots. Therefore be sure to praise your parrot as often as possible and give him a nice treat whenever he attempts to say the correct response.

This training can continue until your parrot consistently responds with the correct answer every time that he is asked the specific question. This verbal trick can be hard for a parrot to learn and will take a lot of patience on both your parts. Do not give up!

Parrot Advice From A Proven Expert

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Dear Parrot Lover,

Parrots and other pet birds are one of the most common household pets around the world. Sadly, most pet bird owners do not have any clue as to how to properly feed and care for their pet birds.

The first mistake that new pet bird owners make when bringing home their new pet bird, is in buying the wrong sized bird cage. The general rule of thumb is to purchase the biggest cage that you can truly afford for your pet bird. However you will need to make quite sure that the bar spaces are not too wide, as you don’t want your pet bird getting their head stuck between the bars.

Also, make sure that your bird has plenty of space inside their cage so that they can turn around completely on their perch without either of their outstretched wings or tail feathers touching either side of the cage.

Your bird’s cage should have at least three different diameter perches, as well as 5 different types of toys to amuse themselves with.

Your will need to clean your birds cage on a weekly basis, as well as making sure that your bird has clean, fresh water every day. If you have a small bird you should consider purchasing a small bird bath to place at the bottom of their cage for them to bath in. Larger birds can either be misted down with a spray bottle or they can be placed in the bathroom sink for a quick cooling off.

Parrots, like most pet birds, require a special diet that is fortified with seeds, pellets, nuts, fruits, vegetables and even grains. However, most commercially prepared bird seed/pellet mix also contains a large amount of colored pellets. These multi-colored pellets contain sugared food coloring that can actually be harmful to your bird in large quantities.

On that note, there are quite a few different food items that you cannot feed your bird, such as avocados, chocolate, rhubarb leaves, salty or fatty foods, alcohol, or caffeine.

Your bird will also need to be allowed to play outside their cage for about 2 hours each day. This time can be spent on a bird tree stand or tabletop play gym.

Dear Parrot Lover,

Whilst every parrot owner truly desires a pet parrot that will love them unconditionally they also desire one that is rather well behaved. Unfortunately, not all parrot owners are granted such a desire. This is usually because these parrot owners do not know the right way in which to train their pet parrots.

However, training your parrot not only takes patience (on both your parts), you will also need to understand a few pointers on parrot training basics as well.

The very first pointer, to take into consideration when training your parrot, is that how you respond to your parrot’s behavior will directly affect your parrot’s attitude towards you.

Therefore, keep in mind that no matter how frustrated you may become, you should never, ever yell at your parrot or throw things at our parrot, or even hit your parrot! Parrots are extremely fragile creatures and any such negative occurrence can severely harm them both emotionally and physically.

It is therefore best to keep your parrot’s training sessions short, sweet and to the point.

You should never consider punishing your parrot by withholding its food. However, it is good idea to use their favorite foods as treats to entice and reward your parrot for learning a new trick.

When this training session is finished, place your parrot back into his cage or even onto a play stand for so that he can have a short rest. You should then wait about 30 minutes before you go back to your parrot to play with him so that he knows he did a good job.

Each parrot is as unique as their owners are and their personalities will play a large part in their training. Some parrots will be able to learn certain cue’s faster than other parrots will. Remember to take all this in stride and do not become too discouraged if your parrot does not seem to learn anything from his training sessions. Consistency and patience will eventually pay off!
