    Pine shaving impaction in baby sun conure

    Hello! I have been hand feeding birds for 3 years now. Today I noticed that my chick has somehow consumed a piece of pine shaving.

    Video HELP!! Is This Chick Shivering?

    I'm being told that my chick is shivering, but the gauge says it's at a good temperature, the chick is not wet/moist, and it's in a small closet so there shouldn't be a draft... What's this shaky movement about?

    Raising a Flighted Umbrella Cockatoo

    Hi, my beloved cockatoo Lucifer passed recently after two surgeries, $16k in vet bills and an autopsy that showed a heart necropsy that could never have been fixed at all. My heart is shattered. I definitely plan to adopt again, but I’m worried I won’t be able to find another bird so perfect...
