    Hi everyone!
    I got an email from HubPages that my hub "Causes and Possible Solutions of Behavioral Problems in Parrots" is eligible to be moved to PetHelpful. But, I need to make these changes:

    The Editor who reviewed your article suggests that you address the following issues:

    Spelling/Grammar:
    All articles on Network Sites should demonstrate a good command of the English language with appropriately chosen words and readable sentences. It always helps to get an extra pair of eyes on our writing to spot those pesky, missed errors. Perhaps you can ask a couple of friends or colleagues to proofread your article!

    All help will be appreciated. Thank you! Here is the link to my hub:

    I took a quick scan. I see several areas where you need to use commas. There is a service called grammerly that is pretty good at suggesting edits. May be should be maybe in your poll.

    The thing I noticed was where you give the warning, you made the statement above the warning then you repeated the same statement again. Maybe instead of " infact " use in fact as it is miss spelled as the way you have it written. I enjoyed your article.

    "Puffy was a sky blue male Indian Ring Neck (IRN) parrot."

    "Puffy was a sky blue, male, Indian Ring Neck (IRN) parrot."

    There's a start smile

    "He was found perched a bit away from the chirpy and playful group of other parrots in the large cage. He was unusually quiet, or may be he was sleepy, we didn't know. There was only one problem, he wasn't tame. "He bites," the shop-keeper had warned. However, we felt that we could tame him."

    There's a bit more smile

        My pleasure, Sakina.

        And take no notice of the angry Irish lad, he's just here to promote his business.

    Why don't you try using the Grammarly app for chrome..... it spells checks and checks for correct grammar on everything...... It's even checking all on this comment!!

      But it didn't pick up the missing question mark, unnecessary ellipses and multiple exclamation points, did it?

      "spells checks"?
