Thank You for Recommending Tropican by HARI

Jen M. writes, 

 

Hi, we just wanted to thank you for the Hagen Tropican recommendation!

 

We ordered the sticks.

 

Our macaw just loves them and they smell amazing!

 

I feel so good knowing that I’m feeding them healthy food.

 

I had no idea that Zupreem had sugar in it and all that color can’t be good.

 

We also ordered the Prime Vitamin per your recommendation.

What’s the Best Way to Travel 1200 Miles With 3 Parrots?

Anita J. needs to know,

 

We are moving to a new house, a 1200 mile trip.

 

With a Noble Macaw (20), Sun Conure (23), and Cockatiel (29).

 

Editors note ~ Most humans mistakenly believe all macaws are large birds. Noble macaws and sun conures are roughly the same sizes. Noble macaws are roughly a little more than 5 ounces whereas sun conures are a little less than 5 ounces. Cockatiels on average are about 3 ounces. Endnote

How Do I Transition an Older Military Macaw Into My Home?

Heather M. relates:

We have had a Military Macaw now for just a little over a month.

 

She (assuming, never been sexed) is appropriately 17 yrs old.

 

She has been adapting to a new home and owners obviously.

 

And she is also new to getting attention for more than 15/20 minutes a day and being out of her cage with us most of her awake time, which she seems to be loving.

How Can I Achieve Better Birdcage Environments for My Birds?

Hey there, here for the brunch, but I’d like to speak to the manager, I just have a question or two before sitting down: 

 

So we have a 2 bird, 2 human family.   

 

The littlest one, a GCC named Pz is the comedian and energy ball of the group, with tons of personality packed into a 70gram feather suit. 

  

Our sanity these days hinges upon making sure the bird children are well taken care of, as we spend all our days with them now and find it very enriching to be attentive to their unique needs and the interesting ways in which they communicate them to us.

Can I Use Costco Washcloths to Clean My Severe Macaw’s Birdcage?

Joyce asks: I have another question.

 

I like to clean my bird’s cages with small white washcloths from Costco.

 

I have been noticing they are getting very holey. 

 

I figured they just weren’t that great anymore and then I see Snuggles my Severe Macaw having such a great time talking to them and chewing on them!

 

Will this hurt him?
