I like all the great advice. Well I just found out that the horses will actually be in their stalls when we do the things that we are going to do with the parrots (and I'm also not sure what the purpose is of the birds yet either but I know the horses will be in stalls). Still, it is very good to get them used to big, colorful, loud, flying "objects" if you will. So I will probably use the fake parrot and it does not move just talks but I can find ways to make it move lol. Also, we have a LOT of geese at our pond which is right by our pasture and they are always flapping their wings, jumping and splashing in the water, and squauking so that probably helps too, and plus, geese are much larger than parrots so at least the parrots wont look as big lol.
