    Avian Vets in South Florida?

    Hi everyone! As the title suggests, I’m looking for a good avian vet in South Florida. I was taking my birds to Backos Bird Clinic, but as I called today to schedule a grooming, unfortunately I was told the doctor has passed away, and they’re permanently closed. I’ve searched the Association of...

    Is this the right F10?

    I recently received a new stainless steel cage for my CAG. It’s a bit dirty, so I wanted to give it a real deep clean. I saw that f10 was safe for birds, but when watching videos or searching forums, I only see the F10 listed for Avain usage specifically. I was wondering if this one is the same...

    Is this cage ok?

    My 7 year old African Grey desperately needed a new cage. I saw Gizmo the grey with this cage and the websites I saw said it was OK for Greys, so I assumed it was good enough for him. Fast forward to now, after purchasing, I’m convincing myself that it’s not appropriate. Here is the cage in...

    32 year old CAG Dumping Food

    Hi all, my 32 year old CAG started dumping his seed/ food (same seed we’ve been feeding him for over 30 years once we figured out which one he liked). He scoops it out of his bowl, and even holds the banana chips in the seed to scoop the food out! My father lived with us and passed in January...

    Cage Bar Size

    Hi! I'm looking for a big cage for an African Grey. But all the big cages I find have a 1-inch bar spacing (I want a 3/4 bar spacing). I have been looking at several places like A&E and Kings Cages but have yet to find one. Please if you have any recommendations let me know. Thanks!

    Video odd bird behavior?

    Hi! So my bird does this every so often and it’s usually followed by regurgitation and stops when I pet his head. I was just wondering if anybody else’s bird does this.

    Outstretched wings?

    My 6 year old CAG was let onto the couch to spend time with us out of his cage. He began chirping and outstretching his wings when we all sat down. Is this mating behavior? I’m not worried, because he looks extremely lively and happy.

    African Grey Parrot Cage

    Hi! I'm going to get an African grey and am wondering what cage to get for it. I have looked at several websites Kings Cages, A&E, etc. but the cages that would be suitable for a larger birds are thousands of dollars. If you have any larger birds and have cage recommendations please let me know!

    PCV pipe size?

    I just bought pvc pipe in 1 1/2 inch diameter for an African Grey. It’s only going to be used in a diy play gym. Is that too big or should I stop second guessing myself lol.

    African grey accidentally ate his own feces?

    Hi, I know it’s probably not anything to worry about but im just making sure. My 4 year old African grey accidentally stepped in his own poo while out of his cage. He does not let me clean his feet, so I gave him water to rinse off in. While I was getting the water, I saw him clean a piece of...

    African gray refusing to go out of cage

    So i posted about this grey (8 Year old) in my older thread. She? I think? Was a “rescue”. A family member gave her to me because they felt like they don’t have time for her anymore. They said she was very mean but she is a sweetheart so i thought maybe they just forced her to step up ect. Came...

    Pink spot on birds face?

    Hello! Today I noticed that my African Grey has a small pink spot on his face. He’s been scratching his face and his nail clipping appointment has been pushed back. His nails are quite long (and sharp). I feel so badly :( I’m going to see if there’s somewhere else reputable I can get it done...

    My 4 month old African Grey suddenly died.

    Hi guys, so I have heartbreaking news. Unfortunately, Chico passed away. My son woke up to find him on the bottom of his cage. He was still alive and we rushed him to the vet but unfortunately stopped breathing as soon as he took him back. Now we are just left with unanswered questions. So what...
