    My new Caique has abandonment issues

    Hi all! I'm new here as a junior bird owner after newly getting my beautiful five year old Caique, Appa. I bought him from the previous owner, the owner of the local bird shop, who found out she had two male Caiques so she had to sell one. I have about a month of working from home where I am...

    Hello again cool friends of avian avenue!!! Hopefully this is the right place to ask this question. I need to move out, but my lovie is priority number one. I could afford to live in an apartment alone with him, but I worry about the noise he may make. He's definitely not the loudest...

    Hello— So I have an adult male cockatiel and we live in a 600 ft studio. The space is perfect for us. There’s only one big issue… My cockatiel goes to bed at 10pm. I place his sleeping cage in a closet with the door open, just so he has a cozy place to sleep. But when it gets to be 10pm and he...

    How loud are Blue-Throated Conures?

    I was doing my research for birds and I fell in love with the Blue-throated Conure and I was wondering how loud they are? I live in an apartment. They're in the Pyrrhura family and I've heard that they were a "quiet" species. Thanks!

    Parent-raised Poicephalus

    Hey, guys! I'm doing research on different Poicephalus species as I'm interested in getting two parent-raised ones in the future.

    I don't know if this question has been posted before, but I'm moving into an apartment soon. I'm worried about if other tenents use candles or self-cleaning oven features. Do I need to somehow purify the air? Should I keep her at my parent's house, and visit often? Shes a linnie if that helps

I wanted to put him near a window because I feel like its better for his circadian rhythm and is more visually entertaining. But Im scared he...
