  7. its carried on alot of places mainly skin its also carried on parrots on a larger scale especialy aviary birds i hate to say this but do you wrap ur parrots up in bubble wrap an all of problems are air born have you never had your birds out side have you never opened a door and a breeze blown in you cant kindel your birds away from everything feeding your parrots by mouth is something which has been done for year i know of a few parrots who were tamed by this method 20 years ago
  8. Both sexual and filial imprinting are a *self-defining* terms. If a 'hand-reared' bird willingly mates with another of its own species, then it is not human-imprinted. However, where a male bird which is not imprinted onto humans meets a female, in captivity, who is human-imprinted, he can mate with her whether she wants this or not. Birds are 'hand-reared' in a range of ways; some are removed as eggs; others are not removed from their parents until aftrer their eyes have opened. Some chicks are raised with their siblings, other are raised in solitary confinement. Studies of grey parrots have shown that the *amount* of parental deprivation is related to the degree of behavioural problems affecting these birds once they become adults. thank you was just wondering thought i might as well ask
  9. ive got one question not aimed at anyone but who taught a hand reared pair of parrots to mate??
