What wonderful creatures parrots are, with their super
friendly nature and their ability to talk, they really
are the perfect pet. There are so many different types
of parrots to choose from, so it is important to know
what you are looking for before you decide to head down
to the pet store and pick one out.
The first thing you should look for when buying a parrot
is whether it has clear eyes or not. This is very important
because you do not want to have to care for a blind
parrot in ten years time. Parrots can pick up infections
very easily so make sure his or her eyes are clean and
clear. This is very important!
Another thing to check for is the parrots level of activeness.
If you notice that a parrot is sleeping every time a
person walks past the cage, thats a sure-fire signal
to say that that parrot is not a good choice for a pet.
Look for the ones that are making noise regularly and
that are constantly awake to peoples gestures.
Look for parrots with clean nostrils. This is very important
as you do not want to buy a parrot with breathing problems
and have to pay vet bill after vet bill just to keep
him or her alive. This is one of the most important
rules when choosing parrots so take it seriously.
Also ask the pet shop employee if you can check each
parrots breastbone. If one has a sharp breastbone, do
not buy it. Look for the ones with smooth breastbones.
This is a golden rule for buying a new parrot.
Another thing to look out for is how puffy the parrot
is. If you notice one that can hardly move because its
feathers are too puffy, stay away. Instead try to find
one that has smooth unruffled feathers. These are usually
the parrots that are more active as well! Also check
to see how many feathers each parrot is shedding. You
do not want to get a parrot that is constantly shedding
its features all the time. Most parrots shed feathers
but some more than others so choose wisely.
If you follow these golden rules when buying parrots
from the local pet store, then you are more than likely
to enjoy many years of great happiness and success being
the owner of a beautiful, healthy and charming pet parrot.
