"In just under 2 weeks I have gone from a quivering, tearful, frustrated bird rescuer, to the proud owner of Dylan, the Parrot who in his own words is 'alright'.... Thank you for your information..." (Josette Bellham, Lowestoft, UK.)
"Your training info has done a great amount with my Parrot ... My bird now is very friendly towards everybody and looks forward to getting out of his cage and onto people's hands." (Stella Lam, Danville, Virginia.)
"Thank you so much for your training info, it has worked wonders with my Parrot Sam, his talking has improved, and I am much more confident in handling him and understanding him." (Pauline Chamberlain)
"We were about to find him a new home. However, your techniques regarding responding to shrieking episodes have worked. He is much more calm and playful. His biting attempts, handled in the way you suggest (moving into the bite) have dropped considerably, and he is not biting as hard." (Terry Clark, Los Gatos, California)
"Wow I cant believe it! Its already starting to work, today I had D.J. on my hand, which he would never do, unless I had a towel on my hand because he would bite me vicously, but... now i can acctually hold and pet him! What a difference!" (Ashley Bratt, League City, Texas)
"This book puts its ideas into terms that you can understand, many things not thought of by the general population such as bathing, preventing illness... useful tips about cage placement... and definite direction as to WHAT NOT TO DO. I would reccmmend this book to anyone interested in learning more about having birds as house pets of any breed. (Brenda A. La Platte, Jupiter, Florida)
About 13 years ago, a good friend of mine, Wayne, "rescued" Parrot that showed up mysteriously on his back porch balcony one day.
He came right in the house when offered a cracker, and woofed it down like a ravenous feathered pig... the poor, lost fellow was obviously very hungry.
Well, Wayne, being a good guy, kept him in the house (he didn't have a cage), and tried to locate the owner of the lost Parrot by putting an ad in the local paper.
Nobody responded to the "Lost Parrot" insertion... and in the end, Wayne ended up becoming an unexpected Parrot owner, as he never did find the original owners.
In the meantime, Wayne named the playful and friendly fellow "Polygon". And to his shock, Polygon talked... and it wasn't just "Hello" he was saying. Polygon's chatting was a little more "complicated"...
Huh?!... pot seeds??? Were the ex-owners giving this bird marijuana seeds? Perhaps they were tasty, perhaps Polygon was even getting high!? I really don't know, I just know that Polygon loved to say this (I heard it myself many times).
Wayne thought it was pretty funny, even though he didn't smoke or drink. That is... he thought it was funny until guests came over... then it stopped being funny fast!
Wayne had to do some serious explaining to his dubious, and shocked guests that HE wasn't giving Polygon pot seeds and getting his friendly bird drugged out!
One day when I went to visit Wayne and Polygon, Wayne excitedly waved me over, "Nathalie, listen to this...", he then called out "Whoa..." and Polygon called right back...
Polygon had just made me become a passionate Parrot lover. I never imagined that Parrots could be so charming and funny, and I never really had even imagined owning one.
For the last 12 years, I've learned A LOT about these feathered friends, mostly through the school of hard knocks (or should I say "bites")! I've gathered literally hundreds of tips and tricks on how to keep happy and healthy Parrots, and if you let me, I want to share this knowledge with you to help YOU successfully resolve any Parrot challenge you might be facing.
I want to share with you my passionate quest to have the happiest, healthiest, and funniest Parrots possible!
Does this sound like such a far away dream... to own such a funny, talking Parrot?
I mean, I too have certainly discovered that not all Parrots are like Polygon at first...
Are you dealing with sore, even bloody fingers (bitten to death), ringing ears (those sonic screams), or simply Parrot that refuses to speak... and you have no clue why he is mute as a fish, bites, or screams, despite your best determined efforts?
I bet you didn't realize owning Parrot would be so emotionally involving, perhaps a nerve-wracking challenge, even outright dangerous in some cases!
If you haven't already noticed, when some of these guys bite, they don't mess around... we're talking about beaks that mother nature designed to crack open hard nuts, or rip through tough wood. You don't want these razor-sharp "feathered-pruners" snapping at your soft fingers... or worse... towards ears and eyes that look like leaves and fruit to an untrained, frightened, or frustrated Parrot...
Well, you already know... you'd be better off having a 16 year old rebel teen-ager in your home, who dreams of...
