Parrot Questions 2

We added this parrot questions 2 blog to our site as a continuation of our Parrot Questions blog that became way too long.

People are always asking, "Why is my bird ..." "How come my parrot ..." "Why does my parrot ..." or "I have a question about my bird ..." and I don't know all the answers! This blog allows my readers and other visitors to help answer your questions.

The more answers you have to your questions about your bird, the better informed you will be. One person or site will not have all the answers, because there is a potentially different answer for every bird question. No two birds are alike any more than two people are just alike.

We are no longer accepting new questions

Please search and see if someone has already asked a similar question

, in case it has already been answered. Simply type a word or two that describes the subject of your question, like "feather plucking" or "noisy bird" etc.
