The Importance of The Cage Territory by Sally Blanchard Topic: Behavioral
In the wild, parrots can be quite territorial during breeding season, establishing well-defined boundaries that they defend with their mate or flock against intrusion.

My Bird Won't Eat That by Scott Stork Topic: Diet and Nutrition
This is a comment we hear almost every time we talk to new customers about improving their bird's diet. Most people assume that their bird cannot be convinced to eat a new food because he or she doesn't like the taste of it. That is rarely the case.

Recommended Foods Part One: Formulated Diets by Scott Stork Topic: Diet and Nutrition
Formulated Diets, Often called pellets, should make up the base of every bird's diet. (With many of the smaller birds we recommend mixing the formulated diets half-and-half with seed to form the base.) This base should make up 1/2 to 3/4 of the bird's diet.
