Turn Your Bird into a Chatter Box

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Dear Parrot Lover,

It is only natural to want to train your parrot to talk! Who doesn’t love listening to a talking parrot?

Well, learning to teach your parrot to talk is actually quite simple. Most parrots, especially the larger ones such as Macaws, Cockatoos and African Greys, have an innate talking ability. All you will lead is plenty of patience and proper knowledge on how to train your parrot to realize their full talking potential. Here are a few parrot talking tips:

Introduce a new word or phrase to your parrot by first speaking it aloud. Then you can use that same word or phrase in a sentence. This will help your parrot to hear the word being repeated in different contexts.

Every time your parrot echoes the word back to you, make sure you give him lots of praise and maybe even a treat!

Engaging in a conversation with your parrot can also be a great way to help him improve his talking ability. Stick with chatting back and forth with him about things like food, treats and toys.

Be sure to clearly pronounce your words so that your parrot can easily pick up on the sounds.

Set aside at least 30 minutes per day to start, where you and your parrot will not be interrupted by other pets, family members, friends or your favorite television show.

Never scold or punish your parrot. Parrots learn at their own pace – you cannot rush them.

Be sure to reward him just for at least trying to say the word or phrase correctly.

You can eventually train your parrot to respond verbally to questions that you ask him, using the words and phrases that you have taught him.

Continue with your parrot’s training until he is able to correctly respond with the right answer at least 90% of the time. Once this occurs, it is then time to move onto a new word or phrase. Remember not to give up too soon – and have lots of fun!

Most people that decide to bring a parrot into their home envision a bird that loves to talk, whistle, sing, and entertain. What happens when the bird doesn’t decide to talk as much or maybe at all?

Even if your parrot knows a few words or phrases, would you like him to be able to do more? Parrots are naturally inclined to mimic and make noises, and it is very realistic for your bird to be able to know and speak hundreds of word, if you want him to!

Keeping Your Bird Safe and Entertained

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?

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!
