The 'don't do' examples

Postby Pajarita » Wed Sep 02, 2020 10:11 am

We have been seeing a lot of videos that show things people do with birds that you should never do so I decided to start a thread with them:

Another example of what not to do: tiel is clipped and cat is NOT gently petting it as people commented.

A stupid, stupid idea! You don't allow a little budgie to play on a cat's head:

I have seen this in a lot of videos, they call it an intelligent stunt done by the parrot. It's really not safe for the parrots. :shock:

No, it's not. The thing is that people always think they are in control when it comes to animal behavior when, in reality, this is very much not true! Not even professional trainers that practice/rehearse every single day for years with the same animals are always in control. And cats can be super fast so, one hard pawing of the bird and goodbye little one!

Two more examples of what NOT to do:

Allowing little bird to bother cat:

Bring a cockatiel to a supermarket (they talk about a cockatoo but the bird on her back is a tiel):
