Parrots are a very
popular group of birds. Their colourful patterns and
cute mannerisms, including picking things up with their
feet and climbing with their bills, endears them to
us all. No wonder parrots are such favorite pets. The
smallest parrot is probably the Buff-faced Pygmy Parrot
from Papua New Guinea. The largest is the Hyacinth Macaw
from S. America. Lories and Lorikeets, Cockatoos and
Cockatiel, Macaws, Lovebirds, Conures, Short-tailed
Parakeets, Amazons and Senegal are some examples of
the different kinds of parrots that beautify our earth.
Parrots are intelligent animals who depend on
some degree of socialization and will not be good pets
unless they are taught and patterned to be good pets.
Good training is therefore vital to make these parrots
bond with you. Feed your parrots a variety of shapes,
colors, textures, and sizes of natural foods. Quality
proteins, Vitamin A rich veggies, wholegrains and carbohydrates
are absolute yummies with parrots.
