About our Parrot Questions blog

We added this parrot questions blog to our site because 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!

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 answering questions

Please search for your questions and answers below, or use the link below to search our site for answers.
