    CAG travel cage advice?

    I'm currently using a Top Wing brand 22" H x 15" L x 15" W cage with a very large drawbridge door for Taco the Amazon, which has worked well for decades. I've been looking for the same type for the CAG, but apparently they aren't made anymore. I ordered a 24" H cage on eBay; the description is...

    What’s the strangest thing...

    .. that your rescue birds have told you about their prior owners? I was introducing Smoky Blue to the neighbors, and explaining all the sounds and phrases he knows. My neighbor said it sounded a little creepy... we have an unintentional window into a family’s intimate life based on what the...

    Grey hates right side

    Hi all, My wife and I just today adopted a 16-year-old male Timneh Grey. I previously had owned an Eclectus and therefore have some familiarity and experience with parrot behavior. This Grey, we were told by the rescue agency, will only step up onto your left arm. The foster mom, who appeared...

    New CAG owner

    Hello! I really love birds (especially parrots) and I'm from Baku, Azerbaijan. People here know less than nothing about proper care for pet birds and it's really hard to find any pet bird supplies here, too. But parrots mean world to me and I want to do my best for them. Recently I took in a...

    How to watch movies with your parrots!

    This is how we watch movies with our parrots Bella Lemon, and Happy. Bella especially enjoys watching Disney movies and it helps her learn English. The birds are able to get along on one playstand with enough practice and patience.

    We think taking your birds out for a walk and a nice drive around town is a great way to socialize and get some much needed vitamin D! It is also a great bonding opportunity and family fun as long as it is done with safety in mind! Here are some things we recommend:

    Pranking our african grey with a "talking" paper roll :D

    Have you tried this with your Grey? We decided to up our paper roll game by making funny sounds on the other end of the roll - she LOVED IT!

    A mate for my parrot? Oblivious owner.

    Hi guys! I'm in need of some help. I've had my female 14 y/o Congo for 13 years, but I think she could be happier if she were not in an indoor cage and got more attention (I live in a coop so she lives with my parents). Someone coming over to do house repairs saw her and said he has been...

    What's he doing?

    Our African grey keeps doing this to me, is he seeking attention or something else? He's recently been rehomed by us and won't have us touch him yet but when he does this he asks for a kiss or cuddles.

    Hi, our African grey keeps making this noise at me is it a sign of him wanting fuss? As we rehomed him we can't touch him properly yet but he asks for a kiss making this noise to me at the side of the cage ☺️ Tried to put vid but won't let me.

    New Bird, New Species - need some advice please!

    Hey guys... Ok, so I am about ready to bring Oliver home (a brand new baby Timneh African Grey), and although they may seem stupid, I have some quick general questions. So right now we only have one parrot, Emma, and she is an Eclectus, so her diet is very specific. No seeds, no nuts, no millet...
