I had the opportunity to talk with Sally Blanchard about this topic and with her opinions...

Giving Your Parrot a Bath by Sally Blanchard Topic: General Care
In the wild, excellent feather condition is essential to the survival of any bird.

General Care of Pet Birds by Terry Beaudoin Topic: General Care
Once again it is time to update our day-to-day care article. As several avian experts have stated: our knowledge of the 'proper' routine care (veterinary or in-home) seems to double about every two years. As we hear of these changes in the understanding of bird care we will update this article to re...

To Err in Favor of the Bird by Terry Beaudoin Topic: Introduction
Because of recent articles in the Companion Parrot Quarterly (fka -- Pet Bird Report) as well as discussions had at the first Pet Bird Information Council Convention (held in the Fall of 1998) I felt it necessary to write this article explaining apparent inconsistencies in our information.

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.
