Erica and John's Story
John and Erica have lived together for 15 years and a couple of months ago John contacted Parrotlife, seeking some advice with Erica's constant screaming. Erica's dad was very upset and could not stop Erica from constantly screaming, John booked a parrot clinic session with myself and we are currently working with Erica and John.
Month 1. After visiting Erica we looked at her diet and overall condition, her behaviour, and living enviroment.
Update: Erica is a very highly strung female blue and gold macaw and has a great living environment, she is very fussy with food and just loves to eat the parts of her seed that she likes and not what is good for her. She loves her dad very much but also in breeding mode, combined with over bonding to dad the screaming was at epic proportions.
Update: John has now got Erica on a Parrotlife recommended diet, and she is now using foraging techniques to enrich her life (John needs more boxes)!
Month 3. Parrot Clinic out and about with Erica.
Update: John and Erica attended another parrot clinic this time to teach Erica how to step up and to accept a travel crate, and I can say she did brilliantly. She understands the concept of the travel crate and learnt the Step Up technique, will keep you all posted ...........
