Do you have something to say about your pet bird or captive birds in general?
We love meeting new people with fresh ideas especially when you can see something differently than us.

Why are we looking for guest bloggers on Windy City Parrot?
Here’s an earlier eclectus parrot feeding question from our database:
I’ve read different articles on how much fruit to give my ekkies.
Some say it is ok to give them as much as they eat and others say the veggies should be their top priority.
I do try to give them an equal amount but it seems they have gotten picky about their vegetables lately.
I have been giving them different varieties and mixing up how I serve them – warm, cool, different spices on them but they still prefer the fruit.
Question about Male Parakeet.
Every time I put my arm in the cage he attacks it, or he flies at me when I look in the cage.
My female looks depressed like she would rather he move out.
She use to be so happy.
I got her first, then him a couple months after.
She would sing, and play with her toys.
Original verbatim Quora question(s): How do I train a budgie to free flight and come back to me without having to fly away?
How do you train two budgies to free flight?
Can you train two budgies to free flight at the same time?
These questions were found as a single question on Quora.
The confusing issue is something called “Flashing”.
Flashing describes the chemicals that you should be concerned about, evaporating from the paint. These are solvents known as “VOC’s” (Volatile Organic Compounds).
VOC’s are why you need to keep the area you’re painting the cage in, well ventilated even when using what are known as safe paints.
I don’t know that there’s enough storage space on the Quora servers to answer this.
I read that parrots are loud, noisy and messy – a lot.
Then again so are children.
Let’s start with a top level explanation.
Pet people in the disciple category will always react negatively towards the word own preferring instead to call it pet bird companionship.
In reality birds are the most owned pets we can have.
We have to lock them up in a bird jail.
