    Conure chick refusing food and vocalizing

    Hi, I have a GCC chick, 4.5 weeks old. He is starting to take less at each feeding (fed 4X/day). He has a strong feeding response initially (bobbing), mouths occasionally (like swallowing/tonguing like adult, which I've read is normal in slow hand-fed birds), then after about 5-7 cc's, usually...

    Quinn the biter

    Budgies are cute and tiny with big personalities. And then theres Quinn, my tamed budgie. I decided to purchase him at a store when I was out buying some supplies because he seemed to be the most dominant one and was bullying every other bird so I thought why the hell not? I brought him home and...

    Jealous Lovebird?

    My lovebird, Peach, came to us maybe just over 2 weeks ago. He was getting more settled and comfortable each day, preening us and trying new foods. We brought home our Indian Ringneck a few days ago and since then, Peach will not. Shut. Up. It's not chirping. It's screaming. He also started...

    10 month old Conure Sudden Agression

    My 10 month old conure, Manny, recently started attacking a few people - people who he knows and has been gentle with. He’s been nippy with me and other people but it’s just nippy baby stuff which hurts, yeah, but he never showed aggressive body behavior when doing it. Yesterday he attacked my...

    Conure Sudden Change in Behavior - Feather Growth? Or More Serious Problem?

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the site :) My pineapple conure is only 6 months old and she's been going through her first molt for over three months now.

    Biting strangers on my shoulder

    My sun conure is somewhat new to the family and his past life is a mystery to us. He absolutely hates men. Especially beards. He'll go out of his way to jump off his perch and and attack my dad while he's minding his own business. No eye contact was made. The only people he will allow to get...

    Caique Trouble

    Hey there. My sister has a ten month old caique. I told her not to get him because I thought we wouldn't be able to handle him. She got him anyway. I was right. He's loud and screams when attention is not on him. He can be heard from outside of the house. He's aggressive and draws blood when he...

    HELP! Linnie is suddenly attacking his partner

    I need urgent advice. About a week ago I moved my two linnies into a new cage (the old one has already been thrown away - it was rusty) and tonight my male bird has suddenly started chasing and attacking his mate. I am assuming this must be a territorial issue, or perhaps an adverse reaction to...

    This post is about my two cockatiels, I have a year and a half old pied named Seb and a year old white face named Maui. To preface, the two don't seem to like each other very much, at least Maui never really much enjoyed being near Seb, he would scream and try to chase Seb away, whereas Seb was...

    Socializing to other humans – is it possible?

    Hi, I need help! I rescued a 13 year old Quaker with a plucking and self-mutilating problem, which I have gotten under control, mostly because I work at home and can be around him most of the time and collar him when I’m out, usually for short periods. He still has issues, and the one that’s...
