When parrots become part of the family, they can provide a wonderful and rewarding experience. As with many other types of pets, having a feathered friend can present some challenges; however, our goal is to provide support for you to live in harmony with your parrot.
In this section, we provide you with some valuable information on parrots that will allow you to provide a safe, healthy and stimulating environment for your parrot. Be sure to check out each sub-tab under the main Resources tab.
