    Preening and Pin feathers help!

    Recently adopted a rescue African Grey. It’s been a lot of work but I’ve finally gotten him to trust me enough to cuddle and give scratches. The problem now is the absurd amount of pin feathers on his head and neck! It’s been awhile since he’s had any body close enough to work on those babies...

    Sleeper Cage problems

    My CAG is a plucker, and it doesn't help that he's been very hormonal lately--regurgitated on my sister a couple of times. We're currently working on trying to fix his sleep schedule and diet (he is a VERY picky eater). I recently got a travel carrier to be his sleeper cage, however, he really...

    My CAG is a plucker

    I adopted my CAG some months ago, he's a plucker. He had plucked his back, neck, and front. He now has fluff coming back out, but the problem is that he will pluck it. We're currently working on trying to fix his sleep schedule and diet (he is a VERY picky eater). Do products like Avian Calm and...

    Clicker training and treats?

    Hi there! I live with my 2 year old feathered baby, a Congo African Grey. He has such personality, but I have a difficult time getting him to step up. I want to teach him how to step up on a stick before my hand like my GCC. I’ve bought a clicker already and I have a few questions: Do I need to...

    Basics of Caring for an African Grey?

    Hello! Lately I've been considering getting an African Grey parrot sometime in the near-ish future. At the moment it wouldn't work well with my living situation, but I do plan to move soon. I've been doing some research into them, and from what I've been able to find, it seems like this type of...

About a month or so ago I noticed that there were feathers on the ground I assumed it was molting because I havent seen him plucking his feathers out. Later on I see him preening but then I think he starts plucking (I'm not sure its...

    Rehomed 17 year old African Grey - territorial cage issues

    Hi, I recently adopted a 17-year-old male African Grey. The bird had been owned by an older gentleman who got Alzheimers and I was told, the bird named Bo hadn't been much out of the cage, been fed seeds only, was pretty much a wild bird and no one dared go near his cage. Bo can't fly and we...

    Video Flirting, regurgitating, or bustin a move?

    Earlier tonight when I was going about my rounds and getting everyone settled for bed, I started rocking out to the music that was playing in the Old World room. Normally Kraz and Kamara just stare at me like I'm an embarrassing idiot when I dance, but when I looked over at Mara, she was tapping...

    Where to find a timneh?

    Hello! I was hoping that someone could suggest a few good breeders for Timneh Greys in or around Georgia? Is there a time of year that is ideal to begin searching for a Grey? I've been researching parrots (particularly the longer lived varieties) and I feel that a Timneh sounds like a good...

    Grady, a Timneh African Grey, has had a foot problem for over a month. It started about two weeks before I brought him home, and I have had him for just over a month. I have been trying to get help for him. My local avian vet (who is over an hour away), cannot figure out the issue. I am...

    Newbie

    Hi, I am Tin and I am in Scotland in the UK and I have 2 parrots in my home. The first one is a Blue Fronted Amazon rescue called Yogi, of irritable nature and approximately 20+ years old.

    Poor Kamara!

    My poor little Mars Bar. When Kamara was picked up by peace officers and brought to the Humane Society, she was immediately clipped. They didn't know any better, and clip every bird for the sake of 'safety'. We know that before that Kamara was able to fly, and very well, because she was flying...

    Video African greys certainly are genuises...

    ...but boy oh boy, do they ever have their moments. :rolleyes: I closed the upper door of Kamara's cage so that I could wipe off the usual poopy mess she makes of it every day, and she climbed all the way down the side of her cage, went in through the large lower door, climbed up to the door...

    Help to get a rescued African Grey out of China?

    I found an African Grey parrot outside in some trees in Shenzhen, China almost a year ago. It has a closed leg band with letters and numbers, which apparently they do not do in China. And she (I think it's a she) said "hello" in English. I assume she was brought in by a foreign family and either...
