    Hungry noises, but not hungry?

    Hi y’all! My (still nameless) little poop machine today is making noises like he’s hungry (the aaaaaah!aaaaaah! noise) but he’s already eaten, and isn’t interested in more, once it’s offered. What else does this noise mean? He’s on my shoulder and I’m talking/whistling to him, so it can’t be...

    How to clean up after hand feeding? Worse than an infant!

    My new little nerd (can’t figure out a name! Please offer suggestions ) is nearly weaned - he’s eating formula twice a day and nibbling on food-food otherwise. But good heavens, the MESS after feeding. How do y’all clean your babies? I’ve tried using a paper towel, and a damp paper towel, and...

    Molting since 3 months old...

    Hi, I'm a new bird owner. I just read on this forum today that green cheeks only starts molting around 6 months old. Mine has been molting since I got him and he was 3 months old. He is born in July and I got him in October. I am not sure what a molt looks like, but when he first came home there...

    Baby vs adult treatment?

    This is less about chick weaning than the time they're grown but before puberty. There's lots of advice out there on adult birds, and lots of advice on raising/feeding/weaning chicks, but kind of a void for that in-between period? Example: I have a GCC that was an older baby/adolescent (6...

    Urgent Does a wild runt have a chance?

    There's a nest of three or four house sparrows in my power box, and one of them is literally half the size of the others. What's the chance of survival do you think? Would it be wrong to help it?

    Baby cockatiel constantly 'crying'

    Ok, I've included this in a post on the nursery forum a few weeks back, but I thought I'd put it here as well. I got Pearl at around 4 weeks old, 3 weeks ago, and from around day three she hasn't stopped making baby noises. While I think that's normal, she does it constantly. And very loudly...
