Why Bird Stands are Important

Having a Bird Stand is critical to the development of a properly socialized bird. Knowing by now that your bird should not play on top of its cage, on your shoulder or head, or anywhere else above your eye level, the importance of having a Bird Stand made from the proper material is critical. We think any Bird Stand you get for your bird is better than no stand at all. However, we have our favorite, which is the Bottlebrush Bird Stand. We like the bottlebrush because it has a thick bark which acts like a bird toy, it has...

West Nile Virus : From Uganda to America

We have been receiving many calls recently from people asking about mosquitoes in general, and West Nile Virus in particular.  So, I decided to put on my scientist hat and share with you what I have learned over the past few years about this virus.  What is it?  You may have heard of West Nile Virus before.  It’s a nasty Flavivirus that is transmitted from host to host to you via your friendly mosquito (or 43 species of mosquitoes, to be exact).  It was first isolated in Uganda, in 1937, arrived in New York City in 1999, and in five...

I will assume everyone read my article last month and ran out to purchase a parrot.  On that note, it is important to understand some potential perils pertaining to parrot possession that may not apply to other pets.  Teflon is dangerous to your bird(s) Not that you should be worried about your parrot eating the pan or nesting under it (which is not advisable either),  but rather when Teflon reaches a critical temperature (argued to be anywhere between 250+ degrees), the chemical that makes non-stick surfaces not stick actually burns, and “gasses out” as a poison.  It is initially odorless...

Stuff You SHOULD Worry About

This is an article written by Wayne Gagne, also found on his website.   In 1999, when I first built this site, one thing became apparent immediately. It seemed like most of the parrot owners I dealt with and heard from we're extremely nervous about their birds. Many had fallen into the BETTER SAFE THEN SORRY mindset, and lived their lives in fear for the safety of their birds. Unfortunately, these fears we're fostered by people and businesses with agendas, and those agendas we're good for business. As I got more involved with my clients, I came to the realization...
