Question about my blue-naped parrot
by: Linda

We cannot answer all your questions because you have to do your own work in order to learn about your bird. The internet is full of information about all species of birds, so do a search on the blue-naped parrot and see what comes up. There are also some good books on this site you may wish to take a look at.

When you take in a parrot as a pet, you must be ready and willing to start working to understand your bird's needs as well as behavior. This is your job as a bird caretaker, and you will learn more from doing your own research than if we do it for you. Learning about birds is a life-long work in progress, so never think you are finished as there are new things to learn everyday.

Make sure you know the basics first like type and size of cage, safe natural wood branch perches, proper diet which is organic pellets, taking your bird to an Avian Vet when ill or injured is also a must. Find an avian vet in your area and have this bird checked for infections or other physical problems.

You have made a commitment to this bird's health and well-being by taking it in. There are NO FREE pets and this especially includes those given to us. All pets require safe housing, clean water, high quality food, exercise, safe toys and people committed to taking the best care of them they can. If you don't want to do any of this, then you are not meant to have this bird and get busy finding it a good home. First, have it checked out by an avian vet and make sure it is healthy enough to be moved to another home.

Keep in touch with us and let us know you are serious about caring for your bird because it is not an easy job and will require your time, effort and love to be able to have a healthy bird that will also be one of your best friends. Good Luck and God's Speed.
