Keep your parrot safe for the holidays!

PARROTS AND THE HOLIDAYS – BE MERRY, BUT SAFE

The holiday season is a time of decorating, parties, and festivities. Here is a list of holiday dangers for birds.

  1. Candles, potpourri, incense, room and carpet fresheners are all hazardous to birds.

  2. Christmas trees are often chemically treated, including the spraying of artificial snow. Do not allow parrots to climb on or eat the trees.

  3. Holly, Poinsettias, Philodendron, and Mistletoe are all toxic.

  4. Christmas decorations, including wrappings are all made of materials hazardous to birds.

  5. Remember that non-stick cookware containing PFOA and PTFE, including fondue fondue pots, waffle irons, etc. will poison a bird’s respiratory system, resulting in death.

  6. Educate visitors on the respect for birds and the proper way to handle them.

  7. Avoid stress – birds require 10-12 hours of sound sleep. Keep your bird(s) on their usual schedule for eating, etc. and move them to a quiet place if visitors seem to to be making your bird(s) uncomfortable and stressed.
