  1. Just read this on SSPCA website http://www.scottishspca.org/news/430_lost-bird-looking-for-love Hope the owner is found x
  2. I heard that this parrot was called Chico and he has been reunited with his owners
  3. Sorry Mandy if my reply sounded abrupt - I see your point on the way it reads for people who are new to keeping parrots. Sorry I just feel very passionate about these things. The care of my birds is so important to me as it is with all of you Sure Mandy - cheese on my toast please
  4. I'm the same as you. I feel that these birds are in our care and trust us to give them the best we can. We have the choice to eat what's not good for us but they don't know any better. A treat for my birds is a walnut or a nutriberry and even a piece of fruit Fruit shouldnt be a treat- it should be part of their daily diet! :shock: I never said I only give fruit as a treat - it was an example of a healthy treat. But as Irina said veg is much more nutritious and so yes my birds have fruit every day but they get much more veg along with everything else they should have.

  6. I must admit Kerry I'm the same as you. My 2 don't get anything like chips or crisps. Over time a build up of the things that are not good for them could have an effect on their health.
  7. Good idea I guess my guys are too used to the good stuff They go mad for their toast and palm oil in the morning!
  8. Yes my birds are spoiled but I have read and heard that giving them marge and butter is bad for birds due to the salt and fat content as even though they enjoy it doesn't mean it's good for them. Bird's organs are a lot smaller than ours and so they can't process these things the same way we do. I'm not disrespecting what others do or feed their birds, just sharing my knowledge.
  9. Mine love their piece of toast in the morning. They get wholemeal or granary with palm fruit extract spread on it - that's very good for them
  10. Yeah she was really upset when we went to collect him. It was clear to see he was well loved and looked after and I have sent a few updates since he came with us. He has also been really good for Billy as I think he is the reason Billy is becoming more adventurous The 2 of them have bonded really well too
  11. Hi Sparkkwing - yes we took Echo as a rehome in December. He's a fantastic bird.
  12. Thanks everyone! They are spoiled birdies and my living room is quickly turning into a bird room! I have a huge natural play stand for them which is 2 huge ash tree branches with some toys etc. Here is a photo of it here I tried pressing F5 but still can't see the photos? Not to worry though.
  13. Oh thanks! When I look at the post I can't see the photos so thought they'd disappeared. Thanks for the reply and your kind words
  14. Anyone know where my photos have gone? I copied and pasted the IMG code from photobucket and they came up in the preview but not in the post. Any ideas? Thanks
  15. Time I introduced my 2 greys, Billy and Echo I think. This is Billy. He is approx. 10-11 years old and was pretty much cage bound before we got him a year ago. He is still building up his muscles and is really desperate to fly. He's very territorial unless away from his cage And here's Echo. He is 2 years old and a right cheeky chap! He's into everything but we wouldn't have him any other way. Echo is friendly and will come to both me and Hughie. Both birds live together and get on great. They talk non-stop and definately keep us entertained
