Dear Parrots magazine,

I am new to parrot keeping and clearly have a great deal to learn, and am astonished at how big the subject of parrots is. Many other people must have come to the same conclusion as I have, that there is so much more to keeping parrots than first thought.

Dear Parrots magazine,

Nest boxes

I’m probably going to upset some nest box manufacturers here but just can’t let this go. I have been breeding parrots for just over 30 years and have used many different nest boxes. But most of mine do look as though they are past their sell-by date as they have been chewed and chewed by my breeding pairs.

Dear Parrots magazine,

Regulation needed

Can anyone tell me if there is any legislation governing rescue centres? I have a friend who has been having all sorts of problems with the cockatoo she has had for over 22 years, but is now suffering through ill health. Because of this she can no longer look after her bird, She is partially disabled and doesn’t go out much. Because of her poor health, she has very sadly decided to re-home her cockatoo and contacted a so called rescue centre that was not very far away. She can’t walk very well, so I went with her to this place.
