Here's a great article Greg sent to me today. I thought I would share it with you, as it links to the presentation on harness training. Putting words (cues) to actions is something very handy to train to your bird, so they know what you are doing. This builds trust and a relationship with your birdie friend! For example: Whenever I have Volt out and I want to give him a hug, I say the word, "cuddles," so he knows I am not going to hurt him. When I say the word, he knows I am going to bring him close to my chest for hugs and kisses. Clear communication is key for a strong relationship with your bird.

Hello Members! Our June meeting was all about chop for birds. Greg showed one of many recipes that can be used to freeze food in advance for your feathered friends. Here are a few links for other ideas! http://www.melbournebirdvet.com/chop.aspx http://www.birdtricks.com/blog/chop-mix-for-your-birds/ https://www.thespruce.com/chop-concept-revolutionary-way-feed-birds-390189 There are many more links out here, but there are a few I've used in the past. The following is a quick list of reminders when making chop! 1. Remember to use parrot safe foods. 2. Cook foods like quinoa and beans to add to your chop. 3. Already frozen foods are a great way to make it easy for you to make chop, and still be nutritious for your birdie friend. 4. Oatmeal is a great way to "dry up" wet chop. Just add it in dry (non-cooked) to help with excess moisture. 5. Make sure your chop pieces are the appropriate size for your bird. If you have any questions or need more suggestions, email Greg at Casperpage@gmail.com or Jessi at Vycine@gmail.com Happy Chopping! Jessi Pagett

Hello Members! Our July presentation is about the aviator harness and how to train your bird friend to wear it. There are many harnesses out there, however, this is the one I use, and therefore have experience with, so that's the one I feel most comfortable with for showing. I do like the aviator harness, I think it's comfortable for the bird, easy to put on, and hard for the bird to escape. (This is only my opinion, there are many out there, and I'm sure we have many club members who use other products!) Here are some links to help with aviator harness training! To buy: https://theparrotuniversity.com/content/aviator-bird-harness or http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=5059+20758+18929&pcatid=18929 Harness Training Hints (videos): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etKRisR7vgo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zt9VCVXrGgE (excerpt from manufacturer's video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3s2AQm11XbQ (Full manufacturer's video) Please, if you have any questions, feel free to email me at Vycine@gmail.com Thanks!
