    I wish I had a few hanging parrots around my place well they are in Kent even if it is a road in Singapore

    This story has really made me fill down and the survival of the orange bellied is so important. losing 14 birds and also having problems with bacteria in the wild must mean a more controlled and germ free area need to be built also an answer to killing this bacteria

    the turquoise parrot has been removed from the CITES I status for over four years over here as the Australian government declared they have recovered I had just managed to get a pair breed 4 chicks at the time so i am not shocked on this announcement

    He Charlie was only trying to find @Nigalius

    Its a shame that the smugglers had not been caught how can we stop this when people are willing to pay for them well the lion being smuggled was illegal but what about the parrots?

    well its nice to see a happy vet lets hope he never has to face a Komodo dragon with a tooth ach thank you Tasha for your news post
