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.
