    Where Can I Buy Safe Bird Toys For My Conure

    No plastics please or artificial dyes. My bird loves those little balls that are destructible and paper strings. Also does anyone know any safe bells? She loves them but the ones I bought felt sharp and I wasn’t sure if there was any lead or dangerous chemicals. Hanging bells are ok but she...

    Is My Baby Bird Going to Remember Me?

    I unfortunately have been struck with an illness that the doctors are still unsure of and am resting at my parent’s house. It’s been a couple weeks since I have not seen my baby Conure and I won’t be able to see her again in a month and possibly more depending on how my health goes. Will my bird...

    My Bird Acts Like He Doesn’t Get Attention But He Gets So Much

    He doesn’t make noise in his cage however, he likes to do acrobats and run all over the cage. He does this for an hour and when he does move around me and the s/o try our hardest to ignore him...but he’s so cute. But we are strict about what time he goes back into the cage. He’s been out since 9...

    What is the Best Harness for a Conure

    I have a black-capped conure and have heard that this breed is smaller than other conures. He is about 9 weeks old now and is very desensitized to touch. He lets us touch his beak, under the wings, feet, and belly. We do know that petting too much in certain areas can cause hormonal issues but...

    Baby Bird’s Wings are Twitching

    He’s always been kind of like that but we noticed that today he has been extra twitchy and more vocal today. We are setting an appointment with an avian vet but what do you guys think of his behavior? Is he okay? I’ve been told that some birds make noises when they eat but he seems to make these...

    What are some essential tricks/training for a bird?

    We have been doing target training, step ups, and recall?( not sure if that’s the right word but just flying to our hands)What are some useful or essential things we should teach him?? Also when do you know when a bird has mastered a trick? When he no longer needs to see a treat? Also for...

    How Much Oranges Can My Baby Conure Have?

    Today is Kiwipo’s fourth day home. We have been introducing to him a variety of foods. So far he only likes oranges in the fruit compartment. Oranges are acidic so how much should I give him? Right now he is eating 1 piece of a cutie orange and totally annihilated it. Is this too much for him...

    When Should I Start Introducing Pellets to my Baby Conure?

    He is roughly 5-6weeks old and we have had him for 3 days now. He is extremely tamed and is VERY food motivated. He just got done with liquid feedings and was fed seeds and soft grain/veggie mixture. When should I start introducing pellets? I was recommended and have bought a large bag of...

    My Baby Conure Squints his Eyes. Is he sick or tired??

    I noticed that sometimes when he eats his food he looks like he’s squinting or slowly closing his eyes. I don’t believe he is sick because there are no other signs. His poop looks completely normal. He loves to fly. Is he just tired? Is this a sign of pleasure? He just got weened off liquids and...

    Baby conure won’t be quiet

    Hey so I have a baby conure who is about 6 weeks old and it won’t stop doing those little chirps (like when it wants food) even after its crop is full. When ever I hold it, it does those little screams, when ever I leave it alone, it does those little screams. I have no idea what to do or how to...

    Wild bird help

    Hi guys, I’m aware that this is most likely parrots only but I need help and I think you guys may be able to help. I was attending my highschool (in Australia) where my friends had found a bird in a quad, meaning it was no where near a tree, it was in a social area. According to them its...
