    Urgent Cockatiel - Stroke or Seizure?!

    My 8 year old cockatiel (who I have already posted about) suffered from an episode today that scared me immensely. Took him to the vet and they couldn’t figure it out either. I’m hoping someone can help me identify what happened. Basically he was sitting on my lap, when all of a sudden he had...

    Leaf has been chewing the paint off of the travel cage that I put him in to sleep. he absolutely refuses to sleep in his big cage. he'll go to the bottom of the cage and scream until I get him out and put him in the smaller cage. so I'm looking on Kings Cages for another travel cage that won't...

    well.... looks like the family will be growing

    a friend of mine was talking about having to go recollect her bird after the rehome went south. the guy fricked it up and she got a message saying her super sweet Cockatiel was biting which means that he doesn't understand birds. so she's going to have to go pick her up and then she'll come live...

    how I got a new house!

    I can’t remember the first day I went home to my family very well, I was scared. It was all so new but they had this nice big cage, let me out and fly around and treated me so nicely. I loved them so much, they were amazing! It felt like I would never leave, and I’m sure they told me that I...

    the journey of Leaf, as told by me

    Part 1 of Leaf’s journey: On January 13 of 2017 I was working in the salon with a coworker when we both noticed this giant cage looking thing standing in the middle of the entrance. We surmised several different things that could inhabit this cage from sugar gliders to birds. My gut feeling was...

    is there any such thing as too big of a cage?

    currently Leaf's cage is 32” W x 23” D x 69” H and the cage that I'm looking at for an upgrade is 42"W x 26"D x 5ft 10”H. the reason I want to upgrade is so that I can add more perches and toys to keep him entertained while I'm gone. the second cage would be from King's Cages as well but I just...
