Parrots magazine readers letters

Something to say? Write to Parrots magazine.All letters sent in will also now be posted in our magazine 'Letters' page.

Getting an issue off your chest can make you feel better, and there are many issues in the parrot world. Or if, simply, you just want to tell us all about something concerning your birds, here's your opportunity.

Parrot people love to hear other owners' experiences and the many other things that make us happy or, indeed, very angry.  So don't worry if your issue is controversial as we believe in a democratic system and will not 'cherry pick' letters.  As long as your letter is not obscene or libellous, it will get an airing.

With their help, we managed to get some branches from another neighbour’s pear tree and got them fixed in with my Toby.

Dear Parrots magazine,

Dodgy parts

I always try to do the best for my Ducorps Cockatoo, Benny, and give him plenty of toys, but recently, we had a problem.

One of the toys consisted of a number of plastic rings of different sizes, which I thought would keep him occupied for some time.
