Create the Parrot of your Dreams

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Dear Parrot Lover,

Although most parrot owners would love to have a parrot that displays love to them every single day, most would actually prefer a parrot that is just plain well behaved and obedient. This is simply because most parrots have not been trained properly by their owners, and so their owners are never able to have a special bond with their parrots. This can all change, however, if the parrot owners were willing to learn how to train their parrots properly right from the start.

The most obvious lesson to learn when attempting to train a parrot is to have the utmost patience humanly possible. Your parrot may not immediately comprehend what it is that you are trying to train him or her to do, but given time they will soon pick it up and respond accordingly.

Besides patience, another training tip to adhere to is to remember that how you react to your parrot’s actions will have a direct affect your parrot’s outlook of you as their flock leader. In order to avoid this, it is a good idea to never raise your voice, throw things at your parrot’s cage, rattle the cage, or smack your parrot for any reason at all! If you become overly frustrated, give both you and your parrot a time out until you are calmer to resume a training session. Parrots are very fragile birds and negative words and actions can have long term detrimental effects. Try to keep all of the training sessions short, sweet and to the point, with plenty of rewards along the way.

Withholding food from your parrot to aid in its training is never a good idea. However, the use of food treats, such as extra sunflower seeds, is a great way to encourage your parrot.

Once you have concluded the training session with your parrot, spend a few minutes playing with him. This will give him another incentive to learn quickly so that he can get to playtime faster.

Keep in mind that every parrot is as different as every parrot owner, and your parrots particular personality will play a huge role in how quickly they can learn proper parrot etiquette. Plenty of patience and love will be your best advantages to effectively and easily training your pet parrot.

Enhance Your Birdís Cage

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Dear Parrot Lover,

OK, so now that you have a new parrot and have purchased the largest cage for him that you could afford, it is now time for you to outfit the cage with the right toys and perches. Parrot toys can be easy to purchase, but perches can be a bit more difficult to acquire.

Inside your parrot’s cage you should place a minimum of at least three different diameter perches for your bird to sit on. The varying diameters will also help stretch and relax your birds feet as well. These perches should be made up of different types of materials such as wood, concrete and rope. Inside your bird’s cage you should also place a minimum of 5 different types of toys. Each of these toys should also serve a different purpose, like being either a swing, or a foraging or self-preening toy.

When choosing a wooden perch for your parrot’s cage, it is very important to try and identify the type of wood that was used to create the perch that you are considering purchasing, as there are quite a lot of woods that are extremely harmful and toxic to parrots, such as wood taken from Apple trees. To be safe, one of the best wooden perches to buy would be one that is made out of Manzanite. This is a good, safe, wood that is popular amongst most good parrot perch manufacturers. Manzanite is easily identified by being a dark wood that grows in a variety of different shapes and sizes.

Utilizing certain types of toys in your parrot’s cage can also act as perch, such as using pieces of rope toys that your parrot can swing from during the day and sit on to sleep during the night. When choosing a rope toy look for one that is made from 100% cotton and one that has smooth surface. The last thing you need is for your parrot’s toes or claw to became ensnared in the rope when you are not home. This could cause serious injury to your parrot.

Try to have a varied selection of perches in your parrot’s cage. Although a minimum of three with varying diameters and lengths is also a safe bet, the main focus should be on perches that allow your parrot to easily walk on and climb about on too. A good idea is to include at least a wooden perch, a concrete or sand perch to help with keeping your parrot’s nails and beak trimmed down, and also a rope perch for climbing around on, as well as for swinging on.

Shopping online for perches for your parrot’s cage is a great idea as it affords you the opportunity to research a wide variety of perches without leaving the comfort of your home.

We’re all familiar with the standard perches that come with bird cages. While there is nothing wrong with them and they serve a functional purpose, birds love more variety than that.

In the wild, every perching bird enjoys moving from one perch to another. They sit on them, climb along them, and move from one to another. Our pet birds are no different and they enjoy perching at various levels and having options available to them.

Bring Variety to Your Bird’s Perch

With so many pet birds in homes everywhere, there are far more interesting perching options for your bird than just that standard perch. One of the neatest options is made out of rope. If you’re familiar with the rope material that many dog tug toys are made from, then you already know what this perch is like.

It is made from multi-colored, durable rope that is fun and comfortable for a bird to climb along. The most attractive feature is that the rope is wrapped around a bendable material which means the whole rope perch is fully bendable.

Prevent Boredom

Birds are very smart creatures, and they often get bored within a cage environment with little stimulation. Rope perches that bend offer a world of variety for your bird’s cage. You can give your bird different levels to sit on, a variety of curves to walk along, and best yet, you can change the look of the perch routinely to give your bird variations for something new.

These perches are suitable for all perching birds, and you can easily find a rope perch that is sized for small birds like canaries all the way up to macaws.
