On the planet today parrots are facing extinction. Man is the problem because we have destroyed a great deal of the habitat, we have destroyed food supplies, and we have taken too many birds in order to supply the pet trade. The only way you can get a pet parrot legally is by going to one of the parrot breeders, this is because the importing wild birds is a illegal in the US and Europe. However, most of the breeders will supply the pets trade.
For many reasons, parrots can actually be lousy pets for some people.This is probably to do with they either die early, or live much longer than a human being. It seems Winston Churchill owned a parrot which he called Charly, it lived to over a hundred, and cursed like a soldier. These birds are extreamly intelligent and smart, but because they get bored easily they get into lots of trouble.
This brings a lot of parrot breeders to a seriously important issue indeed. Which is, some people should not be allowed to keep parrots as pets. It’s a shame, but many parrots are unfortunately abandoned sooner or later. So you’ve decided to become a parrot breeder, then you have to make sure you find a responsible owner for the baby parrots. This means guaranteeing to take the baby back in the future.
Some parrot species, live the hyacinth macaw are very close to becoming extinct both in captivity and in the jungle and one there for him to, and there still aren’t enough homes for the captive birds. It is true to say that some individuals only became parrot breeders after they rescue birds, and suddenly they have eggs.
It is becoming very apparent that parrots that are already captive need good care now. The question is, what about their young? Some South American parrot breeders are attempting to breed birds that should hopefully be able to look out for themselves. They then going to return them into the wild habitat that parrots love.
Some parrot breeders are attempting to end sales to pet shops, so the breeders will then pick the owners for the birds. It is also hoped that by giving better education to potential parrot owners they would know more about parrot care.
