Aug 17, 2007
There are many people need to know before they decide to go out and buy a baby parrot, such as important information about caring, including feeding, cleaning and training. This article will endeavor to explain everything there is to know about parrots so that when the time comes for you to go out and buy your own baby parrot, you will be fully confident in your ability to look after your own parrot.

So what is the first thing you need to know about caring for your new baby parrot? Well, first of all, a parrot is not like a cat or a dog in the sense they can be handled often. When parrots are young, they must be treated with care. The first thing you must remember is to not pick your bird up to often as this will teach it to be too dependent on yourself, this is not what you want. What you need to work towards instead is a baby parrot that grows into an independent mature parrot that is able to look after itself without your help. Of course this doesn't mean it's going to be able to open up the kitchen cabinet and get its own food, you'll have to do that!

Some people, who don't know how to care for a baby parrot in its initial stage of life, tend to 'baby' their bird too much. This will cause the parrot to depend on the owner too much and you often see parrots that follow their owners around everywhere. One of the ways you can stop your parrot from doing this is to turn your back on him or her every time it is looking for unnecessary attention. This will immediately tell the parrot's brain that they can no longer rely on their owners solely and it will start to become more independent.

The second thing you will need to know about owning a baby parrot is their feeding patterns. Initially it's not going to want to eat a lot due to the fact he or she has been brought into a completely new and different environment. So to start off with, it's not a bad idea to feed it some tasty treats so it feels welcome and excited about being in a new scene. One of the most favorite treats for parrot are crackers, smeared with a little honey. Your baby parrot will munch it down like there's no tomorrow!
