Halloween Parrots - Pumpkin Carving

Comments (10)

By Michael Sazhin

Friday October 29th, 2010

Kili and Truman helped us with pumpkin carving. We had to pause every minute for them to eat some pumpkin and pumpkin seeds. They had a blast. Not only is it a fun toy to play with, but tasty too! I supervised the parrots while my brother carved a jack-o'-lantern.

Introducing your parrot to new objects frequently is a great way to keep the parrot more social and relieve fear aggression. You see, parrots that are easily frightened can become bitey every time they see something they are scared of. But if you create positive stress free introduction with new objects frequently, they will be far less affected by it. Holidays are a great opportunity to introduce them to unfamiliar seasonal stuff.

The parrots watched as all the humans were enthusiastic about the pumpkin. They were just dying to get involved too. If all the humans are doing it, then it must be safe. This is a fantastic way to introduce them to the new stuff they haven't seen before because seeing you play with it reassures them it is good. Don't just give your parrot a pumpkin or the finished carving, let it watch the process which will get it even more excited to play with it.

The parrots were having so much fun that they did not fight once during the whole time, even when Truman accidentally bumped into Kili.

The real Halloween horror is the slimy pumpkin feet and beaks.

That's adorable, I can't believe they're so into it! Sadie was terrified of our pumpkin, but we did get a full size one...

You can see that Kili was a bit weary of it at first as well. I didn't show it but she was flying off a lot cause she was nervous. But when she saw Truman digging in and having a blast, she wanted to check it out as well. It's actually pretty cool how I can just get one parrot to like something and then the other one really wants it all of a sudden too.
