If you have sky, look through the digital radio stations. There is a wicked kiddies station on during the day with nursery rhymes, sing-alongs, etc etc. Birdies love it!

Do tell, whats it called ?

:lol: Way to go kenzo! Anything you can do to help reduce the household expenses will mean more tasty goodies for you. :D

 

I would always recommend a radio rather than the TV, unless you have a plasma screen.

There's an interesting piece by Ron Vet on this old thread. It explains what a parrot sees when watching a TV.

 

Is there anyone out there who can say whether what it says is still true as we change to digital???

I have read that before that tv screens are not good for the birds. What I didnt realise was that it also applied to fluorescent lighting. UV lighting for the birds is fluorescent so could this cause stress problems, its got me thinking :?
