Think of a bunch of garden hoses banded together arbitrarily shooting water out one or the other.
As opposed to a “firehose” of information.
Now you know what fielding questions about captive bird care looks like to us.
We don’t know where it’s going to come from – Disqus, our blog, one of three ways you can contact us directly on the website or email.
Just organizing the questions is a task in-and-of-itself.
The following was part of an answer to the following Quora question.
“What would be a bird’s reaction if we tied a helium balloon to their legs (that would make them float)? What about a bat? How would they adapt? QUESTION DETAILS IN COMMENTS”
At some point in the very short response I saw these words
“Someday, I’ll tell you about the time I duct taped his feet to the kitchen floor to prevent him from chasing mine”.
I’ve often said the universe is too complex to be arbitrary.
We brought home a Prevue F040 birdcage for our six budgies, but once built we clearly felt it was too small.
It sat in our living room for about three weeks.
During that time we received a phone call and long story short we ended up rescuing a 17-year-old male African ringneck.
I just want to thank you for the weekly messages – for the stories you tell, and all that you teach us.
I have had a 10-year-old female Goffin’s cockatoo in my care for 2-1/2 years.
Editor’s note: Goffin’s cockatoo aka, Tanimbar corella aka Goffin’s corella.
Her owner was someone I knew most of my life and she committed suicide suddenly with no warning.
She had many animals.
Horses, dogs, cats, snakes, rats, and a bird.
This question comes from the Google My Business community.
Unfortunately Google sets character limitations in the answer box and I felt compelled to provide a well rounded solution.
Thus you found your way to our excellent blog on nothing but pet birds and captive bird care.
good evening Mitch, we recently put up an outside aviary for our rescue Indian ring neck.
we do not have regular screening up because we were afraid it would keep out the UV Light.
should we use that because of bugs, bees and mosquitos?
We need help
We don’t generally interact with mainstream bird rescue organizations.
The last bird club/rescue meeting I spoke at began with a police presence called by the current president trying to forcibly remove the former president, who wouldn’t leave.
The next 15 minutes resulted in parliamentary maneuvers so legal action could be brought against the former bird rescue president.
We’ve seen that a lot over the years.
Which is why we mainly work with private rescues and bird rescue initiatives.
