    Why is my lovebird panicking all off a sudden?

    My lovebird (male, about 4.5 months old) has been acting weird lately. He's acting very paranoid and panicky in his cage when it is bed time (online time when he is in his cage). First I thought it was Night fright, but it also happens when it's still light. This has been going on for like 2...

    Random biting?! + not wanting to step up!

    My Indian ringneck has been having some weird habits going on for the past week or so. He used to be very scared of me but now he comes over and crawls on me and then starts nibbling at me! The first two nibbles he uses his tongue like he is exploring the feel of my skin and then he pinches! I...

    Advice needed on getting a new bird

    Hey everyone, So recently I've been thinking of getting a new bird, a cockateil specifically. Thing is, I already have a lovebird (1 yr old), and Icarus can be pretty aggressive. He's super territorial about his cage and that one section of curtain he calls his nest, and refuses to come near...

    How long can a Large 'Too be left alone per day?

    I've been researching cockatoos on and off for almost two years now, trying not to just be one of those people who think "They're so cute! I want one!" and just buy the bird on the spot and having it be unhappy and eventually being re-homed. I have a full time job (40-45 hours a week) and a...

    Help! Maccha is attacking my sister.

    Maccha has recently started flying at my sister's face when ever she walks past his cage, or is sitting on his favourite couch. Is there anything I can do to stop Maccha from dive bombing her?
