Parrot Problem Solving 101 (PPS 101) uses a homeopathic/holistic approach to heal and maintain healthy companion birds. By using this approach their systems are not clogged with pollutants or eating proteins filled with antibiotics. We are not vets and we do not recommend that this forum be taken as a replacement for having your bird examined by a Certified Avian Vet. We will recommend adjustments based off the results of the tests given by your vet. It is our genuine effort to compile helpful information in an effort to keep our companion birds happy and healthy.
Parrot Problem Solving 101 (PPS 101) was developed as a collaborative effort by our admins (past and present) to provide information on care, behavior, diet, and problems that Parrot owners often encounter. This is a voluntary effort, as we are just like you, Parrot moms and dads. These efforts have assisted many to improve and understand the commitment needed to co-exist with our companion birds. We sincerely thank all who have contributed to this effort, directly or indirectly.
Meet the PPS 101 Founders
Jami is an avian nutrition specialist, aviculturist and parrot owner her entire life. Originally calling the deep South home, she now calls the beaches and hinterland of beautiful Queensland Australia home. Her family flock includes her son Alex, a mini Macaw names Chillee, a rescue keet Nuggey and 2 cuddly chooks out the back, Bacon and baby Toot. Her teaching background has provided her the thirst to seek knowledge and learn from the best in avian society. Collaborating with Oneta M Carter fueled her quest to learn as much as possible about balancing a birds diet and environment for the purpose of harmony and feathering. Her hopes are to share with and teach others what she has learned in hopes to inspire others to have this same thirst to learn. She and Oneta currently own the list to 2 very successful help groups on Facebook , Parrots...Show and Tell and Parrot Problem Solving 101. They are dedicated to the harmonious enrichment and health of all that is PARROT.
