'Stop Screaming Polly' produces and markets a strobe lighting product to parrot owners who are fed up of their birds screaming.  This is not training, it's torture! 


Parrots take a lot of time and patience to train and tame, especially if they already have mental issues like those found in a huge number of captive birdsong. Strobe lighting will only increase their nervous behavior and is punishing the bird for doing something it does as a natural response to stress.


This page markets this product as harmless and an effective way of training a parrot. In their defense they even use shock collars as an example saying that many were against them to begin with. Shovk collars are not OK and cause a great deal of pain and emotional stress for dogs. Hardly a defense! 


As bird owners, lovers, 'parronts', we are sick to the stomach that a company claiming to be bird lovers would even dream of producing such a product and feel that it is unnecessary,  harmful and unethical.  It should not be sold.
