Hope you enjoy this, he’s a cutie.


Do you have a pet parrot? Or perhaps you are thinking of getting one. What do you do with it when you have to go away? Be it holidays, business trips, family reasons we all need to be away from home sometimes. Pets, including parrots, need to be taken into account when we are making our plans.

There are three options, not all of them equal depending on the situation. You could take your bird with you. You could board it at a boarding place. Or you could have someone “bird sit” your bird.

Here are three tips that will make it easier for you and your pet parrot if you choose the boarding option.

  1. Be sure that your pet parrot will be getting enough human contact each day. If that seems doubtful when you inspect the premises, look for a different place.
  2. Be sure that the area where the birds are kept is frequently and thoroughly cleaned. It would be sad for your feathered friend to become ill through unhealthy surroundings.
  3. Check out what other birds are likely to be near your bird. Are the birds to close to each other? Is your bird likely to feel threatened or insecure in that setting?

Perhaps, the boarding option is not one that you had thought of. If you do consider it investigate all aspects of each place carefully. So much depends on the how such places are run. Many of them are very fine places but not all of them are equal. It pays to spend a little time and effort before leaving your bird in different surroundings. Your pet parrot has come to depend on you for companionship and all his other needs. I hope these tips will help you to ensure that those needs are able to be met when you have to leave him with others.

Knowing about the needs of parrots and how to give them the basic care they require, makes it much easier when it comes to the decision making part of purchasing your pet parrot.

Parrots need to have attention because they are essentially social birds. A pet parrot is dependent on their human friends for the company they need.

Having knowledge of what foods, besides bird seed, to feed your pet parrot will ensure that your new feathered friend will stay in good health. Some foods such as avocado are not good for parrots whereas some other vegetables can be extremely good for them.

If you are fully aware of what effort is required to look after a pet parrot, you won’t be surprised when the cage needs cleaning or there is seed everywhere and things like that. Having this prior knowledge before buying a parrot makes it much easier to provide an environment for your bird that will ensure both its health and happiness.

Information on the right size cage, the right food and what type of toys are suitable for a pet parrot is critical to the health and safety of the bird. As a pet, it is dependent on you supplying all of its needs. That is why it is so important to make sure you know all about these things before buying the parrot. Having the right knowledge can make all the difference in your success in having a parrot as a pet.

Another consideration is whether to buy one or two parrots. Because parrots are so social in nature, having two can work very well. They are less likely to become lonely when you have to be away. A lonely, bored parrot can create problems. A contented happy parrot will give hours of enjoyment and companionship. Many people say that pet parrots are indeed the perfect pet.
