Celebrating Valentine’s Day with Your Parrot

LOVE BIRDS (4)Valentine’s Day can be a special occasion for nearly everyone—including parrot owners. You can make the day memorable not only for that special someone in your life, but also for your feathered friend.

And you’re not alone! The National Retail Foundation estimated that pet owners would spend $367 million on their pets for Valentine’s Day. So why not join the fun? Think how surprised your bird will be to wake up to new a bird toy, a bird perch or Parrot Playgym.
As you get started planning for this special day, here are a few safety precautions to remember:
Avoid Candles:  Decorating for Valentine’s Day can be fun. But as much as you enjoy the sweet-smelling aroma of a low-burning candle, the fumes can be toxic to your bird and the flame dangerous.
Hide the Bouquet: If a flower arrangement is sent to you, keep it out of your parrot’s reach. Some flowers can be toxic to birds. Avoid placing flower arrangements near your bird stand, bird perch, or parrot playgym. Instead tuck them safely away in a bedroom or behind a closed door.
Watch the Sweets: Chocolate and other candies are not an appropriate gift for your feathered friend. These products contain substances that can be very harmful, even fatal to your parrot. Avoid leaving candy boxes lying around.

Making Your Parrot’s Day Special
Here are a few ideas to make your parrot’s Valentine’s Day extra sweet:

Purchase Treats:

Parrots love to eat. If you are looking for healthy treats, consider Lafeber Avi Cakes or Lafeber Nutri-Berries. My entire flock loves these healthy treats.

Buy a New Bird Toy:

Toys for birds are not hard to find. But instead of grabbing a cheap item off a store shelf, look for something extra special this year.  There are bird toy companies who produce quality products your bird will love. At Fun Time Birdy you can find handcrafted bird toys, Parakeet bird toys, Cockatiel Bird toys, African Grey Parrot toys, Amazon Parrot toys and Cockatoo bird toys designed specifically with your bird’s needs in mind. These brightly colored toys for birds will keep your parrot entertained for hours.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your Feathered Friend from all of us at FunTime Birdy

Picabo the Umbrella Cockatoo and his Snuggle Fish Bird Toy

We just love when we receive pictures from our customers with their birds loving their FunTime Birdy Bird Toys…….here is what Picabo the Umbrella Cockatoo had to say about his new Snuggle Fish Bird Toy:

I just LOVE my snuggle toy. It’s the only toy that I haven’t completely destroyed in minutes.  I’ve had it for six months and take good care of it. I love to snuggle next to it on my hanging perch and take a nap or remove the plastic puffy letters from the ropes.  My dad puts the puffy letters back on the rope for me and then I take them off again. It is my favorite toy and the best one I’ve ever had!

Get one today for your large parrot!

Picabo, Umbrella Cockatoo

I am so happy that Picabo is enjoying his Snuggle Fish Toy so much!!!!!

The Gorgeous Macaw

Macaws as Pets

The Gorgeous Macaw

Are you considering getting a Macaw parrot as a pet? If so, here is a brief overview of this bird’s amazing and complex nature.
Macaw parrots tend to be:

1.    Stunning. These birds are absolutely gorgeous. Their vibrant colors and flamboyant personalities can literally take your breath away. If you step back to look at a Macaw as he is sitting on his bird stand or bird perch, you will be impressed by his luscious plumage and striking markings. There is no question that these birds are extremely beautiful.  We have a Severe Macaw named Buddy and his markings on his face are so unbelievable.  I am in awe every time I am admiring these stunning markings.  I know they are feathers on his face skin but I swear that it looks like someone embroidered them on.

2.    Stubborn. Despite their natural beauty, Macaws can be extremely aggressive. They may refuse to come down from their parrot play gyms or bird perch and bite anyone who tries to force them to do so. This is true of most any parrot.  If you plan on getting a Macaw, or any other species of parrot be prepared to carefully and gently teach your bird to behave using the “UP” and “DOWN” commands.

3.    Sweet. Yes, Macaws do have a sweet side to them. They are extremely playful and enjoy a variety of different parrot toys. In order to keep your bird entertained, parrot play gyms and plenty of large bird toys are a necessity. If treated right, these birds are extremely loyal to their owners. Be sure to give your Macaw plenty of time and attention in order to keep him happy. Sometimes all your feathered friend wants is to be close to you. Try to spend at least 20-30 minutes a day playing with your feathered friend. Teach him new tricks and games on a regular basis.

4.    Strong. Macaws have powerful beaks and will undoubtedly shred their large parrot toys within a matter of days. This is normal for a large Macaw.  As a result, you should furnish your new feathered friend with lots of large bird toys suitable  for a Macaw of his or her size.

All in all a Macaw can be a wonderful feathered companion that can live a lifetime with you if steps are taken at the very beginning to form a lasting bond.
