    Female Kakarikis Behaviour

    Hello! We have a 7 month old Kakariki, Lily, and got a 2nd Kakariki, Leia, about two months ago. Leia is about four months old now. We followed all the “textbook” advise on bonding the two and it seemed to go very well…until recently. Lily only shared her caged with a very young kakariki for...

    Odd (to me) behavior

    Hello! :cubanzon: We’ve just gotten our 2nd Kakariki and it is very different than our first. Our first is very sweet and quiet. She's also very tiny. The new one, Pickles, is 7 months old and the breeder told us it is female, but I have my doubts. It’s a lot larger than our female and it is...

    Unprovoked Agression to Pre-Teens(GCC)

    I currently own two conures, a black capped conure, and a green cheeked conure. Genders unconfirmed. BCC assumed male, GCC assumed female. Some bird adoption context in the next paragraph, situation context in the following. My partner and I purchased our first conure (BCC), George, in July...

    Aggressive Meyers Parrot

    I joined this forum to ask for some help with my Meyers parrot. I got him around 5 months ago from someone rehoming him. The lady told me he’s around 4 years old. I’m having issues with him being aggressive, and I believe it’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten him. He bites when anything makes him...

    Introducing birds!

    I have a one and half year old GCC, Kiwi, and I got another one who I've named Goose not too long ago. We're not sure exactly how old he is but he's definitely younger than one. I introduced them to each other for the first time yesterday, and at first they were kinda just staring at each other...

    Need help!!

    We rescued a goffin cockatoo about 6 weeks ago and we were told that she doesn’t like women. I seemed to be making some headway, she was letting me pet her head and neck but would occasionally turn and bite me. I would give her treats if we had a positive interaction and I honestly thought we...

    Quaker won't stop masturbating and gets aggressive frequently. What do I do?

    My quaker parrot, Eddie, has been masturbating a LOT for the past maybe 8-10 months. I've been meaning to ask about it, but it's kept slipping my mind. It hasn't really gotten in the way of anything and I don't see it as necessarily harmful, but then again, I don't know. The way he does it is by...

    Bullying

    Hi all, I was hoping for some help in dealing with aggression in one of my birds. I have two Alexandrine Parakeets; Cookies and Pickles, they are brothers a bit over 2 and a half years old and have been with me for about 2 years. They've been caged together their entire lives in a reasonably big...

    Indian ringneck dive bombing

    (was posted in the IRN form but figured it was more suited to here) If anyone can help me it would really be appreciated. My IRN Rhea is about 3 years old, (she is technically male but I refer to her as female because I originally thought she was female when I got her, lol), just growing in her...

    Aggressive Abused Conure

    I have 9 birds in total, all rescues: 4 Budgies, 4 Conures and an African Grey. October, last year, I rescued 2 of my 4 Conures: A male and a female Greencheek, both 6 years old. They had no names when they were turned in, which I found odd that someone could own birds for 6 years and never name...

    Will he hate me forever?

    Hi everyone, sorry this feels like a repeat question... I have two green cheeks, one just doesn't like anyone. He was about a year old when I got him (his previous owner couldn't keep him anymore) he was advertised as 'tame', which seems like a big lie. The person I bought him from said you...

    Aggressive old cockatiel

    Hi all, first post here and in a bit if desperation (probably common for newbies). The backstory is not great, but I'm hoping people will see that I'm here trying to do the right thing. The abridged backstory: Poki is a 22 year old male cockatiel. He was bought for me when I was 10 as a...

    Bad Aspects of Caiques? Nippier than GCCs?

    Hello, I used to have a couple GCCs and have been researching Caiques recently. I am not sure about getting one, but I have been reading up on them just because they are interesting. I might be interested in having one as a pet in a few years, but I've seen a couple people say they aren't good...

    Issues with rescued linnie

    To establish some background, my boyfriend and I share a 350sf studio and rescued an approximately one-year-old cobalt linnie in March of 2019. We rescued him from a young woman who had to move for college and couldn't keep him. He spent the first year of his life confined to a small cage in a...

    Quaker Parrot suddenly aggressive?

    Alright, so I purchased a quaker parrot from a website called “fly babies aviary” about a month ago. I can tell he hasn’t fully trusted me yet as even before the aggressiveness I would stick my hand in and he sometimes would move away. I would leave the cage door open and he would sometimes come...
