The Importance of Training: Feathered Frenzy

As many of us get ready to get back to work or return to school, we’re all getting ready to get back into routines and back to learning mode. Whatever the work or school setting, we all need to relearn or remember important rhythms and patterns.

Humans aren’t the only ones who need to keep learning!

Head on over to the September ’21 Feathered Frenzy column where Sherri discusses the importance of training our avian companions.

Gift Ideas for Parrots: Feathered Frenzy

The Christmas season is upon us, and for parronts, wondering what presents to get for our feathered kids – fids, is a seasonal challenge.

What do you get the fids who seemingly have everything you ask?

Sherri’s December 2020 Feathered Frenzy column provides all parronts out there with great tips and suggestions for birdie gift giving this Christmas.

Beyond toys, playgyms and treats, the greatest gift we can give our feathered companions, and the most valuable, is our time and attention this holiday season!

The Great Wing Clipping Debate: Feathered Frenzy

To clip or not to clip. That is the question.

Sherri’s November Feathered Frenzy column provides readers with a well rounded overview of the controversies and practicalities of wing clipping for our feathered companions.

We all want our companion birds to be safe. But we also want them to feel confident and happy in their feathers. Wing clipping plays a huge role in how our fids interact with and explore their surroundings.

For an in-depth look at wing clipping and how best to approach it with your fids, catch up with Sherri in this month’s Feathered Frenzy!

Birds can feel the magic of the holiday season too!

It starts on November 1, inspiring over seven weeks of bright eyes, excitement, and good behavior. It is the ringtone that only mommy can hear:  “Hello? Hi, Santa!”  Bubbles and Zack begin their posturing and charm as they know the holidays are on the horizon and they’re on Santa’s radar for good behavior!  The holidays are a fun time, and we can share that fun with our avian companions. We just have to be mindful of exercising appropriate safety precautions around the home and with other people.

Read Sherri’s inspiring and fun Feathered Frenzy article to find out more about fun ways to get your birdies excited for the upcoming holidays and safe ways to include them in the festivities.
