    If you want to buy a parrot, you'll need to groom it to keep it beautiful

    After browsing the parrots for sale on the site you may have decide to buy a parrot. Parrots make beautiful pets but need to be groomed properly to stay healthy and beautiful.

     

    You should wash your parrot once a week at the least. Ensuring that you keep the water away from its face, a good way to wash your parrot is to mist it with  warm (but not hot) water from a spray bottle. Afterwards, use a towel to gently dry it.

     

    To stop your parrot escaping you might want to take it to the vets where they will clip it’s flight feathers, which still allows for short flight and so is not inhumane.

     

    Sometimes a parrots beak may need sanding. You must have a vet do this.

     

    When a parrots nails become too long and sharp, trim them carefully. If bleeding should occur, use styptic powder on them.
