> Parrot Care Sheets
The Parrot Society UK recommends that you obtain captive-bred birds wherever possible. You must, however, remember that the larger parrots live a long time and keeping them is therefore a long-term commitment.

> Husbandry and Management of Parrot Species
The maintenance of healthy stock in captivity requires an understanding of their psychological as well as their physical requirements.

> Keeping Records
Why should I keep records?

> Legal Identification Of Stolen Parrots
Parrot thefts have been on the increase over the past couple of years, with little or nothing being done by their owners to identify them if they are stolen, these parrots whether one or quite a number are all considered the owners property.
