    Cockatiel weaned too early..?

    Hi everyone! Today something odd happened,my 4 week old cockatiel voluntarily ate a big chunk of banana! I’ve weaned my fair share of cockatiels to know that they normally start from 6-8 weeks. I ignored the incident and continued with formula as usual. Now I’m kind of confused. Should I...

    New CAG Arrived. 4 m/o Keeps Crying After Feeding

    Hello everyone, my new african grey Astro arrived 2 weeks ago. It is a 4 month old rescue. The previous owner reduced from 3 feedings to 2 on his own, and then when he started refusing his morning feeding, they reduced to once a day. He always had pellets, seeds and fruit available at this time...

    I Introduced My Parrots To Each Other....

    I have been wanting a cockatiel for a while now, and a few months ago I asked if anybody thinks one would be okay with a lovebird. Most said No, and not to take the risk. But, I got a baby lutino cockatiel, and took the risk yesterday. Now.... They are great together!!! Pippin (the lovebird) is...

    Pictures I think you guys might like these baby Robins

    They fell out of a tree while the local falcon was having a snack early July. Both were brought to the SPCA the day they became orphaned and I don't have them anymore, but I had them just long enough to snap photos. They both arrived at the SPCA in good health.

    How do your IRNs like to be bathed?

    Looking to introduce my baby Indian Ringneck to bathing soon! He's still young, but we still need to keep those feathers clean :p What methods do you all use? I've heard from several sources that these birds are not the biggest fans of water, but of course each one's an individual. I was...

    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...

    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...

    To clip a new baby rose breasted cockatoo or not?

    I’m getting a baby Rose Breasted Cockatoo . The breeder says he will fledge before I get him. He recommended a very light clip , I’m not sure what my thoughts are on that ? Since he or she will be so little and new to me and my home, will it want to fly away in my house? Is it a better idea to...

    5 months with Pepper!

    Not a huge deal I suppose, but my six month old cockatiel, Pepper, is going through his first molt, and I am happy to say that his wing that was clipped by the breeder has completely grown back in, and he is loving the freedom to fly properly! My next plan is to train him with the aviator...

    Will my cockatiel like me?

    Hi everyone, Okay so I HAVE owned cockatiels in the past, but I got them at a pet store and they were already fully grown and super tame. I have picked out a new baby tiel that is about 5 weeks old now. He/she is being hand fed by the breeder until it's weaned and is cute as a button. But I...

    New cockatiel mama

    Hello everyone! I am the proud new bird mama of a cinnamon pearl peid cockatiel baby! And I'm SO excited! I have been looking forward to getting this bird for years. I don't know if it's a girl or boy yet though fingers crossed it's a boy because the egg laying thing does scare me (but yes I do...

    Possible early signs of PBFD?

    hi everyone! I have a GCC who will turn a year old in a little over a month so she’s pretty young. Something I’ve noticed for a while is that the feathers on her rump seem to be a bit odd. I thought it was just her molting but her rump area seems to be a bit sticky. I give her scritches there...

    Bird aviator harness

    I have a 4-month-old sun conure. She is super sweet and cute and I am just dying to take her out with me. As the weather is getting nicer I thought about taking her out with me. Her wings are slightly clipped but she can fly to her cage from the other side of the room. So I was considering...

    Pictures A baby at the pet store

    I had to run to the store to get something for Morgan, but they didn't have it at Petsmart so (against my better judgement) I went to Petland, ie. The Land of Godawful Habitats. Petland's one of the very few stores that carries large birds like 'toos and CAGs, but I've never seen a macaw in...

    41 days

    Hello, my name is Zara, it has been 41 days since I last spent more than 1 hour out of the house. I think I'm going cuckoo... Me and my man walked to a local restaurant for dinner and as soon as I got home I change into snuggly pj's so Adélie can snuggle in to his favourite spot. He's the...

    Finding a forever home for Moose female baby lovebird in Maryland area

    Hi there! I have a few threads in various forums here about my baby lovebirds. They were hatched near Christmas. I had them DNA tested & Moose is the only girl so I cannot keep her with her brothers. I also don't want her stuck in a cage alone as the odd bird out. SO, trying to find her a...
