    Baby Cuddles

    Piña (our pineapple GCC) is now about 14 weeks old and her personality is really coming out. She loves being the center of attention. She plays very well in her cage with her toys and does this adorable cheep when she finds one of the little treats I've hidden in her foraging toys. We have her...

    Independence Out of Cage

    Hi friends! :) This is my first week with my baby Pineapple GCC and she's a total angel. She plays super well on her own in her cage, eats and drinks comfortably and already knows how to step up and down (we practice for short increments every day). I'd like for her to learn how to play on...

    New owner and new birdie!

    Hi, I have just brought home a hand raised cockatiel. We have not had her 24 hours as yet. She is fairly frightened and flighty. I am not going to attempt to handle her until she is settled and relaxed, eating, drinking etc. My query is if this takes say 2 weeks will my bird still be tame or...

    My Bird Will Only Eat Seeds

    Hi everyone! I’m new here and have a question. I brought home my 10 week old lovebird last month and he will not eat any fresh fruits or vegetables, I’m concerned for his health. He loves his seeds but won’t even eat pellets mixed in either. I’ve tried about every fruit and vegetable even...

    Baby Caique Quaking

    I don't have much experience with baby birds but am wondering if when he's quaking and kinda squawking because he's hungry? He's almost three months old and eats quite a bit but only the fresh foods, he seems to be avoiding eating his pellets. I'm worried he might still need to be hand fed? I've...

    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?

    Stunted 3 month old Green Cheek Conure

    this little baby is supposedly three months old, we got him from a really wack breeder on craigslist and we got him because when we saw him we were so concerned.

    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.
