Behavioral Consultations

image
It is our goal to help YOU enrich the live(s) of the birds you live with, and to learn to co-exist successfully. Parrots don’t come with an owner’s manual. Each bird is unique even within the same species – unfortunately, fixing your parrots’ behavioral issues is not as easy as 1,2,3 – but that does not mean there isn’t a solution.

We will explore with you your birds’ diet as well as enrichment and foraging options in concert with the specific issues you are having. Please have a look at all of the available and recommended resources on our website. If you need further information, or wish to schedule an in-depth Behavior Consultation, you may contact the aviary staff at [email protected].

It is also possible to schedule a behavior consultation over the phone. The fee for this is $60/hour or 10 minute increments at $10 each. Payment is accepted prior to the appointment by check or credit card.

Thoughts for a Sunday morning.
With much bird and animal tragedy in recent news stories, we often feel helpless about what can we do. How can we help? If we care about animals' welfare, how does that label us? Clarity on the differences between Animal Welfare and Animal Rights is a good place to start. Understanding how we evaluate animals' care when we apply the Five Freedoms for TGF's flock is central to our approach to our birds' welfare. What do you think? Share your ideas and photos with us about what these concepts mean to you. webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20121010012427/http://www.fawc.org.uk/freedoms.htm
