{ else }   Blog: Raising Parrots  

Raising parrots is much like raising children. In fact, children and parrots are very much alike in many ways. Both go through different stages in their lives. From babies they grow into toddlers, from toddlers to youngsters, from youngsters to adolescents, from adolescents to teens, and from teens to adults.

They each have mood swings, throw temper tantrums, are demanding, push their limits, break the rules, and can make you wonder why you wanted them in the first place. Children and birds can also be loving, sweet, want to snuggle, make you smile when you're sad, make you laugh when you want to cry, be your friend, give you a reason to get up in the morning, and make you wonder how you ever got along without them.

Blog: Irish is a hoot  

That girl has some nerve...Here is the deal on what you'll face if you adopt or buy a conure parrot. 

Lets see she likes to steal my food and drink.  Please watch what the birds eat NO CHOCOLATE!  Ohh if your give them soda, they'll be bouncing off the walls!  My little girl begs the most with Ice Cream... her little head is nodding so fast you can barely keep up.  She fluffs up those feathers and does the little hooky pookie dance.  Ignore her she'll nip just to get your attention and then literally pull the class away or food as seen in this picture taking the pancake.  Might need to have the wipes on hand birds make a huge mess with their food.



She hates the dark, last night I put her in the cage for quite time about 10PM all the lights were off in the apartment except my room.  Within a mere few minutes I felt a tug on the sheets.  I knew Irish was on her way up the bed, she perched ontop of my knee while I was reading.  My birds have open cages, so they’ll come and go at whim.  I guess she wasn’t ready for bed.  Many times if she’s cold she’ll bundle right in under my chin. 
 My little girl has a lot of spunk!  I’ll share more stories in the near future so you’ll need to stop back!
