Happy Easter everyone!

We would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter!  If you want to share eggs with your parrots this weekend, make sure it is of the natural kind and not the chocolate variety.  Chocolate is highly-toxic to parrots.  An even better way to provide your parrots with an extra special treat while going for a relaxing Eastertime stroll is to pick a few weeds that are young, fresh and clean for their delectation.  Budding or flowering fruit tree or nut tree branches are also much appreciated, but avoid cherry or chestnut.  So, don't forget to take a bag and a pair of secateurs with you!
