This front page is here to let you know a few things about the publication and the website. At this time, we are extending all current subscriptions from 2014 and 2015. Read the particulars below:

If you wish to subscribe to In Your Flock magazine, please visit the parrot magazine subscription page. In Your Flock is published quarterly for 2016 & 2017. If you subscribe immediately after an issue has already mailed, you will need to wait until the next quarter to receive your first issue. Check out the FAQs for other subscription questions. If you wish to advertise in the pages of In Your Flock, Publisher Sandy Lender is happy to discuss that relationship with you. Send her a note at publisher@inyourflock.com.

Bird Health Information: We use the Bright Eyes department from each issue of In Your Flock magazine to help populate the health page, which will always be a work in progress due to its importance. Check back often! Even if you don’t have a subscription, you will have access to the health information that professional journalists have gathered with avian veterinarians, avian behaviorists and other avian specialists. The winner of our Win a Scale contest will be announced here soon!

Consider this next part the fine print: Please keep in mind that Sandy Lender is the publisher, editor, designer, circulation manager, advertising coordinator, mail-room attendant, accountant, marketing/PR manager, website administrator, and the person who travels for the publication when travel is necessary. If you find that you have a question that cannot be answered by the FAQs, please send your question to publisher@inyourflock.com and give Sandy some time to respond.

  3. I’ve seen a discussion about Vitamin D deficiency and lack of sunshine in tropical brids as a possible cause of plucking. Your thoughts? Is there an easy way to supplement vit D in birds kept indoors at the Tropic of Capricorn? Does full spectrum lighting provide enough UV rays to provide vit D inside? Humans can be tested for Vitamin D levels. Is there an avian test equivalent?

    • Karen,
      In the inaugural issue of In Your Flock, I’ve included an article on calcium in the Bright Eyes department. Take a look at that because it includes a reference to a researcher’s findings about supplementing with UV light/full spectrum bulbs. Very good information. I began my “career” in reptile husbandry–it’s vital to get calcium right for turtles and tortoises (imagine shell deformation if calcium’s off!) so getting vitamin D3 and calcium-to-phosphorus ratios right has been part of my feeding habits for about 25 years now. The issue mails next week and the online version goes up at the same time. The Bright Eyes department is one that will be available to the general public here on the site.
