    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?

    Cockatiels Constantly Mating?

    Hey! I've had 2 clutches of chicks now (5 eggs in each, all hatching with 2 chicks surviving the first clutch and 3 the second). I had taken the first 2 chicks out for hand raising, waited a bit and then taken the main nesting box out. By this time, however, they'd already started mating and I...

    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...

    Hi Everyone, I am looking at expanding how many birds I have and how many I am breeding. I know enough about breeding the macaws themselves but I am not sure about intervals for the feeding, how much to feed them, what to feed them and if there are any big worries/sicknesses that are present in...

    I have had great progress with Kiwi, she can fly now and she is in the process of learning how to step up. We are training her and making sure she is safe. When we saw her on Sunday, she was flying all around and she seemed to love being in my hair. She kept on flying to the top of my head and...

    I went to go see my precious Kiwi on Saturday and she has grown so much. She is learning how to fly and is getting stronger. She is now 5 weeks old and she is learning how to eat hard foods like seeds and whatnot. She enjoys dried fruits and is so precious. Kiwi managed to climb onto my head...

    Nippy baby conure, best training method?

    I have a very new baby conure named Tiki, almost 3 months old. I've had her for a month now, and while she is SUCH a sweet bird who loves cuddles, and pets, and obnoxious amounts of attention...it's difficult to give it to her sometimes. She's becoming increasingly more nippy the braver and more...

    Age of baby bird?

    i recently got a green cheek conure from a breeder who said it was 7 weeks old (Now the bird should be 8 weeks old). However, when I looked on YouTube, all the videos of 7 and 8 week old conures did not look like mine. From the research I’ve done, my baby looks about 6 weeks old as of right now...

    New Baby!!

    Yesterday I put down a deposit on a baby whiteface cockatiel! They hatched only a few days ago, so when they start to get their pin feathers I will choose which one will be coming home with me. The breeder says they should be nearly weaned by the end of December, so that’s probably when my baby...

    Messed up Feathers?

    My 8 month old Goffins cockatoo, Frankie, has always had messy feathers. She plays hard, spends a lot of time rolling on back, and it really effected her tail feathers. Recently it's gotten more apparent, and her wings have been more messed up. I give her a bath at LEAST once a weak, usually...
