a word from mitchr
CMO Windy City Parrot, Inc
They are little dinosaurs with 99 million years of evolutionary instinctual expectations that they want to communicate to you.
The bird you are trying to adopt is one of about 700 species we categorize as captive or caged birds.
They see light outside the visible spectrum that humans cannot. They have a standing heart rate of 200 bpm. They poop every 15 minutes. Even the tiniest of beaks can puncture skin, the larger ones can break the metal. They can fly
Are you prepared to make the decision to keep your bird flightless or allowed to fly?
With either choice do you know how teach bird flight? Do you know which feathers need to be removed to eliminate flight but keep the bird safe?
If your bird is injured do you know how to restrain it without getting bit?
Captive bird keepers will tell you getting bit is part of keeping a bird. I will tell you that getting bit is not acceptable by a bird, dog nor cat. The question is do you know how to avoid bite?
Once you can answer all the questions on this test you’ll not only be ready to bring a bird into your home but you will be empowered to care for it properly.

“Although Peaches never fledged, she’s become quite the little flier but needs to work on landings”.
“A bird’s eye view is broader and faster than you can ever imagine”
Our holistic aproach to pet bird care
We advocate that you look at your bird(s) “holistically” meaning look at “everything” that affects a captive bird because it’s already processing that information – 3 times faster than you.
