Are these made from pollyester? Potty parrots help owners with their daily chores including hanging out the washing
The parrot beak; formidable, powerful, dangerous, wondrous. And it hurts like crazy when it pierces our skin. Just why do parrots bite? In the words of Susan Friedman, Ph.D, “Most biting, regardless of situation, is to remove intruding hands that cannot be removed any other way. Birds learn to bite to communicate 'no' because we don’t listen to lesser communications of 'no'.” I try to explain to people that every animal has a right to say 'no', so, if you don’t want them saying 'no' with a bite, what behavior are you willing to take?”
KITSAP COUNTY, Wash. -- A missing parrot had a volunteer search team combing the woods in Kitsap County on Monday, and thankfully the ordeal had a happy ending for the bird's worried owner.
