    Getting an Amazon post egg stroke

    So I'm getting a yellow shouldered Amazon and the person said she's recovering from a n egg stroke... I love taking care of special needs animals and I agreed that she's right up my alley but I've got some questions (yes I'm going to take her to the vet as soon as I pick her up or the next day)...

    Goodbye, Tip of Green Cheek Conure's toe. Seeking advice.

    Yesterday, we had an emergency vet visit after an injury. I was re-arranging the bird's toys- something they HATE. they do not like it when I touch their stuff and they get very territorial and wound up. They have squabbled with each other in the past only a few times, never resulting in...

    Pictures Questionable growth on cockatiel's nose

    My cockatiel has this weird, small growth on the right side of his nose, almost like an mal-developed feather. My bird hasn't exhibited any adverse symptoms since it appeared (about 6+ months ago), and has never flinched or reacted in any sort of pain when I go to touch it or pet it, so it seems...

    Injured parrot

    My Indian ringneck parrot got injured and has a wound under his left wing at the joint. It's not that big of a wound but it's still big enough for it to pain. We put betadine on his wound and gave him a drop of medicine prescribed by the vet the same day but he has been acting very sleepy...

    Urgent Frodo dropped a feather with a slight bit of blood at the end

    So far he seems fine, and no obvious/major bleeding after a few look-overs. He’s in bed right now and I’ve popped over to check on him a couple times and he seems just fine. I’m just extremely paranoid and would appreciate some reassurance. He was sitting next to me when something freaked him...

    Is it possible to gain trust of 20 year old neglected Sun Conure?

    Hello all, thank you in advance for any information you can give me as I have tried to do a lot of research and I can not seem to come to a particularly good information or method in my case for my bird.

    Questions about Uneven Wing Clip

    I just brought home an adopted TAG with a TERRIBLE wing clip- someone removed all of the primaries on his right wing. The left one is intact, although the primaries have a sort of 'patchy' look along the leading edges- not sure what that's about. Does this clip pose a safety risk? Is there...

    Help me choose between two birds!

    After contacting 32 different breeders, bird stores, and rescues, I have 2 leads on potential Jardine’s! My breath caught the first time I found one- I’d gotten so many “sorry, we can’t help you”s that I was getting a little discouraged. So here’s the breakdown: A pair of 1 ¼ YO hand-fed...

    Momo beak peeling update - green cheek Conure flaky beak

    Hey! So I think I know what happened? Momo recently started waking up and chewing on her cage in the morning. She usually chirps for me to get her as soon as she wake up but started doing the chewing thing about a week or so ago. So I’m thinking maybe she went a bit to hard or something and it...

    Awaiting a baby to be weaned!

    Hello! Nice to “meet” you all! So, I’ve been researching which type of parrot I’d be a good fit for, and have come down to two, which are both still a little while away from being weaned… It’s between a White Capped Pionus and a Cape Parrot, both of which I adore, but am having trouble deciding...

    Young Caique Obsessed With Nose

    I recently acquired a six month old white bellied caique and she is an absolute dream. However, she is obsessed with my nose. Like to the point of spending all of our one-on-one time trying to grab it. She’s not being aggressive. She straight up is just trying to lick inside my nostrils. Of...

    A few questions for my Green Cheek Conure (long post, mental health/OCD)

    Hey guys! I’ll admit, I’ve been very stressed out lately. I’ve been having a lot of health issues (physical AND mental) which led to me realizing that I need to step up my game when it comes to caring for my green cheek Conure, Momiji (Momo). This is gonna be a LONG one, so thank you in advance...

    Lovebird won’t leave food bowl

    My lovie has just been sitting at her food bowl with her head in the bowl. It’s been like this for a couple of months, occasionally she plays with her toys but for the most part I’ve just caught her like the photo attached. She’s acting very hormonal otherwise- and she doesn’t lose or gain...

    Sun conure biting/screaming when playing instruments. Seeking advice

    Hey everybody! New to this site. My girlfriend and I just adopted a rescue sun conure from the SPCA and we adore her. She is extremely cuddly (especially with me) and loud (to be expected from a sunny). We've had her for about 3 weeks, and one issue I have noticed with her is that she acts very...

    My little baby girl and best friend has passed, I need advice on how to help my other baby through it.

    I honestly thought I would never be posting this/ asking about this soon. I lost my 12-year-old baby girl on the 7th and I'm super distraught. I had gotten sick at the beginning of February and sadly wasn't able to take care of my babies for three days. My mom was looking after them (she knows...
