    Is my bird plucking?

    My 2 mo old conure is missing some feathers underneath his wings and on them and I’m worried he’s plucking. I can’t get photos of him because he’s not very comfortable with me touching his wings yet. But here’s a little drawing;

    How much should a baby green cheek conure eat?

    So my baby green cheek conure, Rocky (roughly 1 month) who weighs 42 grams ate 12 whole grams of formula when we were letting him practice eating on his own. Is that okay for him?

    Teaching Baby Not to Bite Hard

    Hello all! Recently got an 11 week old Princess of Wales Parakeet and I’m wondering what is the best way to teach him not to bite hard. Of course he likes to use his beak since he’s a baby but he has got quite the grip. He likes to grab a beak full of skin and just hold it tightly in his beak...

    Hello! Baby quaker

    Hello everyone! I recently got a baby Quaker parrot. He’s about a month old, and we notice one of his leg looked off. We’re not sure if this because he’s still young and can’t support his weight. Is it normal for baby ? He’s stand up normally on his leg now. The photos I posted are a week apart.

    Urgent Bird has a sore next to his eye?

    My baby sun Conure (about 5 months) looks like he has a purple sore on the skin around his eye. So far he’s been acting and eating as normal but I’m fairly certain that a nasty looking sore is NOT NORMAL. What is it, and should I contact my vet?

    So yet another thing happened. Early this morning I found a wild baby galah sitting in my backyard that seemingly couldn’t fly or walk properly, instead of walking it crawls using its beak to pull it along. So I picked it up with a towel and placed it in a box and put it in a dark room to...
