Common Sense trumps alot of what you'll read online about parrots. Particularly when you run into products that are available and on the market based on a small study, or observation of a small section of parrots in the wild. It's important to keep in mind that just because something is available, doesn't make it necessary or necessarily right. I think back on those horrible mite cakes you attached to a birdcage. These things are poison, and completely unnecessary. But one study on the affects of mice generally set up the ability for this to become a parrot product for the consumer. And a deadly one at that.
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.
