Maintaining the breeding system

While a virus has paralysed the world of human beings, nature has maintained its usual progress, although with the absence of various contaminations, acoustics, gas emissions and many others that, in our day by day work, we do not become affected. A pause that definitely will be recorded in some way, even in the physical memory of the earth.

Consequences of too much food

If there is one act that many of us parrot keepers are guilty of with our birds, it is the daily overfeeding of the flock. It is not an easy habit to avoid considering how important nutrition is to the health and longevity of psittacines. The rationale often is, “Give birds lots of food and they will pick out what they need and never go hungry, hence I am doing the right thing.”

The Holistic Parrot

Those of us who keep parrots may have recognised some of the commonalities between avian viral and bacterial infections and Covid-19 (Coronavirus). One glaring similarity that jumped out for me is the fact that an individual can be a carrier without showing any symptoms. This is why it is so essential for the health of our existing parrot collections to quarantine every new bird for a set time period, and receive a clean bill of health from your avian veterinarian, before introducing them into the rest of your flock. Many of the avian pathogens go through a cycle and into dormancy where standard disease testing cannot detect them, but they can still be shed in the feather dander and faeces contaminating food, water and the environment.
