the best vidios I know of are listed
Positive Parrot Behavior, The Importance of Toys - V1, DVD
-windy city parrot -chicago (local person, but good info. on
new bird set up and care)
Good Bird Inc. DVD Introduction to Training Part 1 - Parrot
Behavior & Training by Barbara Heidenreich
Captive Foraging DVD - Brand New!!! Help You Understand
I have library of books & vidios & think these 3 are the
-The water bottle is OK but you need a water dish also. The
bottles ball can jam & all the water run out or not come out
at all & birdy has no water! I had a conure that would
stuff food around the ball and mess things up!
Cage set up and placement is important and worth the time to
research. Also get the biggest & best cage you can. Many
people make the mistake of getting a too small cage & end up
spending more $ less than a year later for a better one.
Also remember to look into good food, not a seed diet.
-no, I am not working for the store but they have a good
stock & the first vidio is not widely sold.
congrad. on you baby! Best of luck!
