EXPECTATIONS

image39

 What can you expect when you partner with Susan's Parrot Place to bring a Companion Parrot into your life? 

Why is Susan and her Flock different from a pet store or breeder? 

What benefits do I get buying from Susan's Parrot Place?
These are all  great questions that I hear from my prospective customers all the time  and reasonable questions they are. Let's talk about this...

Here at Susan's  Parrot Place, I want those that choose to work with me to find the ideal  companion parrot, to know that there is no better value or approach  they can find. I strive to ensure that each prospective new companion  parrot owner is properly educated, assessed for the right type and fit  of companion parrot, and truly understands the responsibility and  obligation that goes with owning one of these magnificent creatures. I  want to be sure that once my customers have decided to move forward with  their decision to share their life with a companion parrot that they  will have made a logical decision and not just an emotional one.

 

Pet stores and  breeders are quite different in their approach to raising and caring for  companion parrots and in how they price and support the sale of their  baby parrots. Let's take a look at each of these:

1. Pet Stores -  Their primary business is in the retail selling of products associated  with pets and their care. They make their largest margins on the food,  toys, cages and accessories that they sell to their customers. Their  primary knowledge is in the business of selling, not raising pets. In  the case of birds, you will often find that due to lack of  socialization, nurturing and proper development guidance, many birds you  see in pet stores today cannot typically be handled by customers, and  quite often not even by the staff or management. This is primarily due  to the birds being brought in to be sold and the simple fact that these  pet stores neither have the qualified staff nor the time and ability to  manage the needs of exotic birds. Customers of these establishments are  forced into making a purchase from what is in stock at the time. Lastly,  retail stores, due to their higher overhead associated with running a  store front business, typically charge higher prices for the products  and services they offer. 

Pet stores and breeders are quite different in their approach to raising and caring for companion pa


2. Breeders -  While breeders have strong experience in hand-feeding and initial care  for babies during the critical first two months of development, most do  not have the space and facilities to take their babies thru the fully  weaned process. There are typically two types of breeders operating in  today's marketplace. The breeder network that Susan's Parrot Place is  affiliated with does not fall into either of these two catagories.
One type of  breeder focuses on the mass breeding, hatching, feeding and forced  weaning of baby birds for the large commercial and retail outlet pet  stores. They sell baby birds with the focus being on volume of sales,  not the quality of the exotic birds.

The other common  type of breeder raises their babies to an almost weaned state, then  sells them to small specialty bird shops and other pet related  facilities that have been educated in the final stages of hand-feeding  and proper weaning.  Many of the places these birds may end up are not  fully capable of this critical transition process. Once again, this type  of breeder is focused on selling baby birds and not on raising,  developing, socializing and nurturing that these amazing creatures need  if they are going to thrive as companion parrots.


3. Benefits of Susan's Parrot Place - I offer a companion parrot focused approach that sets my birds apart from the rest of the flocks out there.

 - I have my own Private Breeder Network that supplies our babies. 

 - I provide consistent and ongoing socialization and development.

 - I utilize proven nurturing guidance techniques in raising my babies.

 - My babies are abundance fed and never forced weaned.

 - My babies are taken carefully through hand-fed to fully weaned status.

 - My babies are "Raised in a Home for a Home" to be companion parrots.

 - I help the customer find the right companion parrot for their lifestyle.

 - I assist in the purchase of the right bird, not just what is in stock.

 - I provide our customers the education to succeed with their baby.

  - I offer a limited guarantee to protect your exotic bird investment. (*Call For Details*)  



 

  - I have my own Private Breeder Network that supplies our babies.

 - I provide consistent and


 - I offer free ongoing support for you and your companion parrot.

 - I focus on  the exotic birds first, the sale comes second.

These are just  some of the personalized benefits that come with working with Susan's  Parrot Place. At the end of the day, I believe that you will not find a  higher quality companion parrot that has been developed and nurtured to  such a high standard. 

As I have said before...
 

MY PARROTS ARE RAISED IN A HOME FOR A HOME!

I hope you will consider one of my special babies for your home!

PARROTS AS PETS

 

Parrots can be really amusing creatures to have in a home. If well trained and looked after, they will live for a very, very long time. They are brilliant at learning things quickly which of course, includes mimicking most noises they hear. A few of the breeds are exceptionally good talkers with the lovely African Grey parrot being the best of them. Below are a few fun and interesting facts about these delightful, often gregarious feathered friends:

  • There are around 353 different species of these lovely, brightly feathered birds in the world
  • There are two families of parrots – the Cacatuidae (cockatoos) and the Psittacidae (true parrots)
  • Parrots are known as Zygodactylous which is a bird that has the     first and fourth toes pointing backwards whereas the second and third     point forward
  • Grey parrots are also called “Jakos” or African Greys
  • Parrots in the wild live on seeds, fruits, nuts, buds and lots of     other plants found in their natural habitats – they will however, eat     any meat they find in the rainforest too!
  • Parrots are incredibly intelligent birds
  • A parrot's natural habitat is tropical or subtropical – they can be found in many rainforests of the world
  • Parrots are popular pets because they are beautiful to look at,     they have gorgeous bright plumage and they are very affectionate and     sociable birds to keep in a home environment
  • The first parrot was imported to the UK in 1504 although the Romans kept them way before this date
  • In many species of parrots, the males and females are identical – blood tests need to be done to tell them apart

From Tiny Parrots to Really Big Ones
 

Parrots come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny little birds with tiny little beaks to really big parrots with massive beaks – namely the parrots native to the South American rainforests, the Macaws and Amazons.  Here are a few facts about the different species of parrots found in the world:


  • The most popular small parrot to keep in the home is the budgerigar
  • The smallest parrot in the world is the Buff-faced Pygmy Parrot –     Latin name is Micropsitta Pusio, the little bird only weighs in at 0.4     oz and grows to a very small 3.5 inches
  • One of the biggest parrots that people like to keep are the     Hyacinth Macaws – the Latin name is Anodorhynchus Hyacinthinus. The     parrot can weigh in at around 5 lbs and grows up to 39 inches
  • The lightest parrot only weighs 0.4 oz and the heaviest can be up to 5 lbs
  • The heaviest parrot in the world is the Kakapoo – also known as the Night Parrot or Owl Parrot
  • Other popular parrots are Amazons, Cockatiels, Cockatoos, African Greys, Parakeets and Lovebirds
  • The lifespan of parrots is around 80 years
  • The oldest and most famous parrot lived to the ripe old age of 87
  • The only nocturnal parrot is the Kakapo
  • Parrots are omnivores – they eat meat and vegetables
  • Parrots use their bills and toes when they climb up things
  • Parrots mate for life – they are monogamous birds
  • The best mimics are the African Greys
  • Wild parrots do not imitate or mimic
  • Parrots are the only birds that can pick up their food with their feet and bring it to their mouths in order to eat
  • All species of parrots lay white eggs
  • In the United States there are around 11 million parrots kept as pets
  • The only native parrot to America is the thick-billed Rhynchopsitta Pachyrhyncha

It is now illegal to take parrots from the wild and domesticate them. The ban was set in place to protect many endangered species found around the world. This means all parrots sold in the UK have been bred in this country and not imported from their country of origin. If they have, the parrots must have the correct documentation to verify they were bred in captivity in their country of origin and not taken from the wild. Here are a few facts about the endangered species of parrots in the world.

There are around 130 species of parrots on the endangered or threatened list which has been compiled by the International Union for Conservation of Nature otherwise known as the IUCN. Below is a list of endangered parrots around the world:

  • The Red-Tailed Amazon
  • The Yellow-Headed Amazon
  • The Red-Browed Amazon
  • The Vinaceous Amazon
  • The Green-Cheeked Amazon
  • The Norfolk Island Parakeet
  • The Pink-Billed Parrotfinch
  • The Golden-Shouldered Parrot
  • The Thick-Billed Parrot
  • The Black-Eared Parrotlet
  • The Golden-Tailed Parrotlet
  • The Hyacinth Macaw
  • The Red-Fronted Macaw
  • The Carnaby's Black Cockatoo

Parrots that are considered to be critically endangered are listed below:

  • The Puerto Rican Amazon
  • The Night Parrot
  • The Fuertes's Parrot
  • The Orange-Bellied Parrot
  • The Yellow-Eared Conure
  • The Owl Parrot
  • The Lear's Macaw
  • The Blue-Throated Macaw
  • The Lesser Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo
  • The Red-Vented Cockatoo
  • The Mauritius Parakeet
  • The Glaucous Macaw

Apart from being very intelligent, parrots can do other things like being able to see ultraviolet light – something humans cannot do. More fun and interesting facts about parrots:

  • Parrots usually sleep standing on one leg
  • The most famous parrot in the world is an African Grey called Alex     and owned by Dr Irene Pepperberg. Alex can name over 100 objects,     colours and actions
  • The most talkative bird was a budgie called Puck who knew over 1,700 words

As previously mentioned, parrots are very clever birds and some even self medicate. Parrots in South America, namely the Conures, Amazons and Macaws have been seen to eat clay when they need to detoxify their bodies. The parrots eat the clay because some of the seeds they like to eat contain toxins and the clay helps them cleanse the poisons out of their bodies.  These lovely birds are native to many of the warmer countries of the world including India, West Africa and south east Asia. However, the greatest number of parrots are found on the continents of Australasia, Central America and South America.
