12 Things you Should Never Do With Your Parrots, Part II

12 Things you should not do with your ParrotContinuing our list of tips of what not to do with your parrot…

7.  Never place a large and small parrot in the same cage unless you are sure they get along. Some parrots can be extremely territorial and aggressive. If you have a parrot who is accustomed to being the only bird in his home (cage), and one day you place another bird in his cage besides him, he can become hostile to the new bird.

8.  Never feed your parrot chocolate. Some foods simply aren’t healthy for your birds. Others are downright dangerous. Even in small portions, chocolate can be deadly to parrots. As a result, whenever you are hosting a party at your house, make sure there is no chocolate within your birds reach. Of course, you will also want to inform your guests not to feed your bird anything without your permission.

9.  Never isolate your parrot from the family. Because parrots are flock animals and need the companionship of others, isolation can cause serious mental and physical issues. Birds that are kept in a cage and have little or no interaction with their owners become depressed and sullen. They may refuse to eat or play with their parrot toys.  Some birds may resort to feather plucking, screaming or aggression. In order to have an emotionally healthy bird, provide them with plenty of family time!  You can let you bird hang out with the family on their Parrot Playgym while everyone watches TV or plays games.

10. Never leave another pet alone around your parrot’s cage. Even if your Yellow Lab is the most docile dog in the world, do not leave him around your parrot’s cage unattended. Cats and other pets should also be kept away from your parrot’s cage. Remember both dogs and cats are hunters by nature and birds are animals of prey—seeing your parrot flutter around his cage may be too great of a temptation for your four-legged family member. Even if they only want to play, they could accidently harm your bird by pouncing on the cage.

11. Never feed a seed-only diet. Parrots love seeds. However, that is not the only thing you should serve them. Seeds are high in fat and in large quantities can cause your parrot to gain unnecessary weight. Even if your bird exercises vigorously playing with his bird toys, you should restrict the amount of nuts and seeds you provide.

12. Never adopt a parrot without knowing what you’re getting into. A parrot should never be an impulse purchase. These birds require extensive care, a stable home and an owner who will love them their entire life. You need to be ready to make this commitment before purchasing or adopting a parrot.
