Parrots are used for astrology purposes also, and generally the road side astrologers would keep it for their business. The main enemy of parrot is cat, and parrots are also attacked by eagles. Parrots contain very good knowledge, and they would repeat our sayings, and contains a good voice and good memory power.
Parrots usually live up to 20 years, and it depends on their living place. It is not advisable to put the parrots in cages, since it always prefers to live independently. Parrots can be found in the gardens of those devotees who worship Mata Meenakshi Devi, and the great Sage Shuka Brahma Maharishi.
Parrots can be fed with fruits, nuts and pulses. We can keep some fruits and water in the open terrace of our houses, so that the parrots would come regularly and have its food. By providing food items to the parrots, we would be blessed by the great sages, gods, goddesses and the demigods in the heaven.
Hence let us try to serve the parrots, and be blessed.
