Re: The Socialization of Companion Birds

I have always enjoyed readingDr Irene Pepperberg's articles
The link above is so informative, pertaining to many different topics
This is probably one of her best (I reckon)
Thanks for sharing SB

Re: The Socialization of Companion Birds

Thanks, interesting reading indeed!

I agree with a lot of the points.

I'm glad thus far *keeping everything crossed here!!* Cal is happy to be with us all day. I think we all fear our fids will get to the stage that we aren't enough anymore as happened with Cal's father. He was apparently a constant companion who did everything with the breeder. Then someone who was emigrating gave him a female sun conure. Cal's dad (Rocky) has done nothing but protect his "Mrs" since and the breeder cannot get near him.

I also read about this in a conure book that I bought before I had Cal. It said that sometimes a bird will suddenly not want you anywhere near it to interact. It will stop talking/chirping. It can even stop eating. When all medical problems have been ruled out it can often be the case that the bird just wants a mate. It must feel pretty awful.

We take all of this on board when we adopt a fid but I suspect we all hope that we will never have to "lose" our pets so quickly.

It's nice that it has been highlighted so beautifully in this article as I think it is something that is not known as a given.

Thanks for sharing SB.
