Find out everything you need to know about your parrot and its proper care and raising.

Does every bird have a passport?

Each parrot receives a personal passport on which the history and all medical parameters of the animal are recorded. As a result, we comply with the CITES convention. After four weeks, each bird is ringed with a closed Limara ring that shows its origins.

What do I have to take into account when moving my bird?

Ready to take your parrot home?

  • Avoid as much stress as possible during transport. Provide a covered transport container that allows light to pass through on one side. Carefully place it in a properly equipped cage and let it explore the surroundings for 14 days. In this way the bird gets used to all sounds and movements surrounding him.
  • A well-equipped parrot cage consists of at least 1 m3 per parrot and is equipped with a wearing pole, a separate drinking and feeding bowl. Well trained birds can fly freely indoors and even outdoors.
  • Be sure to put the cage in a draught-free place so that the parrot never gets too cold. 
Which cage does my bird need?

Your parrot needs some space. Provide a minimum of 1 m3 per parrot. Make sure there is a wearing pole, a separate drinking and feeding bowl in the cage. 

My bird has a broken pin feather. Now what?

You should definitely remove the broken pin feather. The feather will grow back faster this way. Take a towel, put it over the bird and pull the pin feather out. Don't you feel sure enough about this? Then go see a vet. 

Why is my parrot's stool watery?

Healthy faeces have a solid structure and are green and white in colour. If the stool looks runny and has a different colour, then something is wrong. It is best to consult a specialist to determine the cause. 

Do I have to take my bird to the vet?

As long as your bird sits upright, eats well, drinks enough and its stool looks fine, you don't necessarily have to go to the vet. However, if you have the feeling that something is wrong, a visit to the vet obviously won't hurt. 
 

What diseases can a parrot have?

The diseases and disorders that can occur in psittaciformes:

- PBFD "Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease" (beak and feather rot)

- Polyoma (creeping disease)

- Aspergillosis (fungus)

- Candida albicans (crop acidification)

- Chlamydia psittaci / parrot disease

- BORNA virus (glandular glandular removal syndrome)

- PMV "paramyxovirus" (pseudo-bird flu)

- Parasites (worms)
