There are no wrong or right procedures or specific foods for any given bird.
It’s always good to start with a manufacturers well rounded parrot food blend like Hagan Tropimix which has seeds, nuts, fruit and Hagen Tropimix pellets.
Some birds are extraordinarily picky eaters and will only eat seed.
A straight bird food pellet diet is not necessarily the answer.
We tell people “there are no pellet trees in the rain forest”
Children are loud, messy, and time consuming, but every family has 2.6 of them (Pew research).
I probably spend less time cleaning up after my eight birds in three bird cages than most moms cleaning up after 2 six-year-olds
or a single toddler
To say that all birds are time-consuming is an unsupported blanket statement.
We have a Senegal parrot and an African ringneck.
Neither is very noisy.
Dear Mitch and Catherine! 😊
First of all, I want to thank you for all the wonderfull “breakfast meals” you give us “hungry” parrot slaves every sunday! 😊
They are so informative, and I always look foreward to read them every weekend!
Thank you very much for ALL the work you make in the research of writing these articles! ☺️
By the way; I love the new format you’ve made on your website!! 😊😊
I appologize for the inconvineance, but I hope you have the time to help me, please, with a couple of questions about a few different subjects.
First of all; my heart is owned by my 6 month old sweetheart parrotlet boy, named Charlie. ☺️❤️

Major Mitchell cockatoos are not loud, and not necessarily cuddly
Bare eyed cockatoos are all but demure
Noble macaws are only 12 to 14 inches long.
Hyacinth macaws are up to 44 inches long – 4 times the size of a noble macaw.
You can’t compare the two just because the are macaws.
I clearly have been remiss by not keeping everybody up with the lives of our six budgies.
Ever since we adopted the last two, Biscuit and Gravy, the dynamics have certainly once again changed in the cage environment.
Putting things in perspective there are only two males, Jam and Eggs, the other four are females.
Jam certainly takes charge on a regular basis. Eggs is just a mellow fellow.
Jam will “helicopter” and just stay afloat in the center of the cage “beaking” out orders.
