    Baby Moustache Parakeet

    Hello everyone, I recently got a 2-3 month old Moustache Parakeet which I was told was pretty "tamed", now when I received him he was scared so I let him settled into his new home, he does take food from humans hands. He is now moving around in the cage and chewing toys, etc. It has been two...

    my budgie :)

    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...

    Molting? GCC

    Hello all! This is my first post. I've been lurking on the forums for a bit. Got my Yellow sided GCC in March of this year. He is now 6 months old. I believe he has started molting but I'm not quite sure. We have had a couple really nice, warm days here in New England. I took him for a walk...

    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...

    First bird as second's surrogate?

    I have a 10 month old cockatiel who I'm pretty sure is a girl. If I were to introduce a second bird to keep her company, I've heard it's better to introduce one of the same species. But when she begins to lay eggs, what if I put an egg in there... of a completely unrelated bird? Say if I were to...

    questions about baby red rumps/baby keets

    I have a 10 week old baby red rumped parrot/parakeet, and I recently posted about him. Since I've gotten him however, my anxiety rises any time he does something, as I fear he needs something or is in pain. So, I had some questions, most of these aren't breed specific, and are more just general...
