Breeder Birds, who's only purpose and work in life is to procreate and create an income for their owner, present a special case to rescues and sanctuaries. When their breeding abilities wane, they are traded, sold, or if they are lucky turned, over to rescue. They have no idea what companionship is, nor toys or a relationship with a person outside of food, water and hands removing their eggs and babies. Here is an interesting tale of a macaw named Girlfriend. Don't worry, it has a happy ending and a lesson to learn for us all.
We've gathered and continue to gather wonderful Companion Parrot Advocates from around the world to write their stories and experiences. These are Advocates who are making a difference by working tirelessly in Advocacy itself, Parrot Rescue and Sanctuary and Avian Veterinarian Care. These stories, and real life experiences are here for you to read, share, learn and apply not only to your own flock, but to your own efforts inside your own companion parrot advocacy.
I hope you'll find ideas and inspiration while reading through these Advocate Articles. Remember, your thoughts and comments are important, they are integral to the success of our prime directive here; To give every parrot, every where, a happy home.
