General care for parrots
No matter what size your parrot is, from the smallest parrotlet to the largest macaw, ALL parrots require the same level of care. They all deserve nutritious foods, a safe cage and home, lots of entertainment, proper veterinary care, and a human companion that sees they get it all – each and every day.
