PostSubject: Basic Etiquette and rules of acceptable behavior!!!   Sun May 20, 2012 7:59 pm

Please keep in mind while it is good to share experiences with one another since it is an excellent way to learn and educate it is also a good idea to be careful and watch what you say on forums. You are responsible for what you post.

The primary goal of this website is to educate people on the safety, care and well being of their birds, so let’s keep ParrotGirl's Bird World a friendly and bird loving environment.
