Bringing a parrot home for the first time can be like adding a new member to the family.  They must be treated like members of the family to keep them healthy and happy.   It is sometimes hard to understand why parrots do what they do. Some pet parrots adjust well and will eat whatever you give them and some will not.  If the larger parrots like the Macaws and Amazons do not get a lot of attention they will get stubborn and moody.  They need constant attention to help keep them healthy and happy.  If they do not get your attention they will get very bored and destructive.  A talking parrot can give you a lot of enjoyment.

If you want some color in your life get a macaw.  The blue and gold macaw is great.  The green wing macaw is a great parrot to have as a pet.  Macaws need a lot of attention or they will pluck their feathers, scream and tear up their home and toys.

Parrots or Parakeets are sensitive birds that need a lot of care and maintenance.  The Quaker parakeet is a beautiful sight.  They imitate human speech and will learn tricks.  Your parrot or parakeet must have good training to behave properly.
