Cockatiels, budgies, macaws, cockatoos, African grays & parrots are some of the best pets we can think of.
The best reasons for getting a bird as a pet:
• Apartment living in most cities do not really allow the space for a bigger pet. A bird needs a small cage to live in.
• If you don’t see yourself taking your pets for walks (think dogs!), birds are a safe bet.
• Birds can talk with you – agreed that it is not the same as having a conversation with a human but at least you get a few words instead of woofs and meows.
• Birds are easier to maintain – clean out the cage, replace the water and top their feed and you are done. A couple of toys, a rope, a ladder and they are happy.
• Many birds live for a long time – there is no fear of a child being devastated on losing a pet.
So, I would hover a little on the bird maintenance part. Shavings, pellets and other conventional cage lining materials set up a foul smell, on top of not being absorbent enough. You have to look at replacing it very frequently if you want your bird to be healthy. We present a healthier, eco-friendly alternative in our Coco Bedding PB that ticks all the boxes for cost, effort and comfort. What do you say?
Simply put - the visit to Wellington FL was surreal!
A Private Runway! Jets parked like cars in homes!
Horses, more horses and some more....Looks like the city cannot have enough!
The Equestrian Center was in pristine condition & horses are treated like royalties.
Sadly, a little outside of Wellington [on the Florida Turnpike towards Port Lucie] there are a couple of land-fills (or should I say mini mountains?) where a few hundred eagles and other birds were hovering in circles. Probably a few hundred more on the ground scavenging. A nasty sight....
And the familiar sight of manure dump trucks hauling loads of horse *-/+ away to these landfills (probably!). Wellington, you have a problem! We have the solution! Let us talk!
I found this interesting article. Wellington, FL is considered to be one of the top names in the equestrian community. It's being reported that during peak season, as many as 9000 horses participate at the Equestrian Festival. That's fine. No second guessing on what comes out when we have so many of them in the town. Manure disposal is a problem that is plaguing the city. The article is a little old, but nevertheless, quite interesting.
So, Wellington, here we come!
I am a science graduate and a salesman - rolled into one. I have a penchant for writing, but edit my copy so much that usually lands me in the same spot I originally began with! My hobby is to roam around Montana on a horse back [just a dream! I don't have a horse and never been to Montana!]
