Do you feed your birds turmeric?

Every month we discuss in Parrots magazine different spices, herbs, plants and foods that can greatly benefit our parrots. The highly nutritious diet achieved by parrots in the wild on a daily basis, certainly by those that come from South and Central America, is very hard to provide for in captivity, but just a spoonful or two of a few suggested pure and natural foods can give a huge boost to their diet. Also, now parrots are living for longer due to better healthcare generally, so they are suffering from old-age diseases such as cancers, diabetes and arthritis etc. and these powerful foods can often help to prevent or cure these diseases. Turmeric is discussed in the July issue!

The July issue is due in the shops Thursday 21 June and we have a special article on even more great enrichment ideas for your birds, whether they are kept indoors as companions or are kept outside as breeding birds.

Volunteering opportunities

With the world getting smaller and smaller as far as travelling is concerned, the opportunities are there to follow your dream, and if your dream is to find unspoilt paradise in the tropics and work with wild animals and parrots in lesser known countries in the world, then we may just have the answer to your dreams!
There are volunteering opportunities all over the world, but we are seeking out some really, really special ones, in some of the most amazing places. The priority is always rehabilitating animals and parrots for release back into the wild and where you are only required to contribute a minimal amount for your accommodation and meals.
The first volunteering opportunity has an opening for several volunteers at a time, for whatever period of time you wish and is on-going. It is with a private family in Bolivia and was featured in the June 2012 issue. The next volunteering idea will be in the August issue...
So make sure you don't miss out!

A parrot joke for you!

One day a man went to an auction. While there, he bid on an exotic parrot. He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he bid way more than he intended, he won, and the fine bird was finally his!
As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the Auctioneer, "I sure hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can't talk!"
"Don't worry", said the Auctioneer, "He can talk. Who do you think kept bidding against you?"

If you have a badly behaved parrot, and especially a cockatoo, the May issue of Parrots magazine, available on this website now and in the shops on Thursday 19 April, is a must-read. We speak to Alan Jones' assistant who has 19 companion cockatoos and she explains exactly how to get the best out of them and how to get through the difficult time when they begin to reach maturity.

African Greys can converse!

We all know parrots, and African Greys in particular are very intelligent, but for many it has always been debatable whether they are just excellent mimics or they can actually think for themselves, and articulate their speech to say what they mean. Read our article: African Greys can converse, and I think you will be left in no doubt!
