Tips on Keeping Your Amazon Tame (or any other Parrot) by Sally Blanchard Topic: Species Specific
I hear it all the time - the rumor is that Amazons are such 'nasty' birds that they should all be placed in breeding programs after they exhibit the slightest sign of sexual behavior because they will turn into vicious blood-lusting monsters. If this is true, how come I know so many delightful Amazo...

Why I Recommend Certain Breeders and Bird Shops by Sally Blanchard Topic: Introduction

A Pet Parrot Isn't for Everyone by Sally Blanchard Topic: Introduction
Is a pet parrot right for everyone? Absolutely not! In the last few years there have been newspaper articles and television programs proclaiming parrots as the easy-care pet of the 90's.
