As caring, giving, nurturing women, we look upon these beloved creatures of the air and know, with no doubt, that the innocent are not to be caged, they are to remain free. We know that being innocent does not mean “weak”, yet we perceive them as fragile, and this is why we protect these beloved creatures with every ounce of strength within us. We see ourselves in these creatures.
It is for these very reasons that we care so deeply for these beloved creatures and find ourselves so willing to fight to the death for any one of them.
Intrinsically we know that they are not to be caught by the hands of humans, nor caged and made to be permanently Earthbound, yet they are. For this reason we must learn how to care for them in a way they can thrive in our care, while we learn how to bring their homes into ours.
I have seen women healed of their own emotional wounds simply by caring for a parrot that needed to be loved. And when the parrot began to heal, the woman healed as well.
There is something in a woman that when something she loves heals, a place in her heals as well. And there is nothing like an exotic creature of flight, the symbol of innocence and of pure and everlasting freedom, to heal the soul of a woman.
Innocence means to be without blame, it means that the creature with it is incorruptible and lives in simplicity.
It is time to take the beloved creatures of the air back to the simplicity of life they were meant to live in, as much as we can now that we have introduced them to the difficulty of living our way…in our homes.
This will mean bringing out our best nurturing skills and healing these beloved creatures, thus healing ourselves in the process. When we see these creatures heal, we will begin to heal as well for we will begin to reverse the damage we have brought upon their innocence. Yes, this will be a restoration of their innocence.
This begins with restoring their diet to as close as what we can to what they would naturally consume in the Wild. Would we place our own human babies on meat straight from the womb? Then why would we place these beloved creatures on foods they would not naturally eat in their habitats?
While we cannot feed exactly the same foods they would find in their own habitats, we can come close and mimic those foods. It is time that we try to feed foods that closely resemble the foods they would find and consume in the Wild rather than try to feed them foods they would not naturally consume in the Wild. As women who are designed to nurture, we understand this intrinsically. Let’s begin by feeding these beloved creatures the correct foods so they can heal from the many disorders and diseases their bodies are suffering from in their attempt at telling us that we are on the wrong path. And when we begin feeding the right foods, and they begin to heal, we will begin to heal as well. We will know that we are on the right path to caring for our beloved creatures of the air because their symptoms of disease and disorders will begin to disappear. This will give us great peace.

I wish to take an opportunity to thank all of my loyal readers for consistently returning to our site to read up on how to properly feed our exotic companion birds, “thank you“!
In lieu of all of the great new research information I have, and because I am placing that information in my avian nutrition book that I am in the course of writing, I will be updating much of the information contained in many of my posts to reflect the most current information! Until that time many of the articles I have written will be “un-published” so that I can work on them in order to update them to reflect the most current information.
This will take time as I am placing most of my efforts into writing my book at this time, so please be patient as I work through writing and editing my book. The sooner my book is published the sooner many of you will have new and fascinating information as to how and why we need to experience a paradigm shift in the way we feed our exotic companion birds!
Yes! A paradigm shift needs to take place in almost all of our thinking about the way we have been feeding our birds, whether we have been feeding highly processed commercial foods, or even if we have been feeding fresh diets we mix at home ourselves! Gone are the days of thinking if we feed a diet high in a variety of foods that will be “enough” to make sure that our birds receive all of the nutrients they need, they really do need the right kind of nutrients for their bodies to properly digest, absorb and metabolize those nutrients so they can be the high-functioning mechanisms they were created to be!
Stay tuned, there is lots more to come!
