    Urgent Baby Cockatiel with Inverted Leg

    Hello! I have two baby cockatiels with the same issue. They're about 2 weeks old. I've noticed that the oldest was stepping on their wing when they moved, so I picked it up to check and noticed that their right leg is sort of "inverted", bent upwards instead of downwards. Their sibling also...

    Urgent Are these seizures?

    Hello, I have been raising some baby pineapple conures and one has been acting erratic. I have raised up hundreds of babies and none of them acted this way. Got a vet checkup and nothing is wrong with him/her, healthwise. I got two baby conures to raise up for someone. They are now at weaning...

    Video HELP!! Is This Chick Shivering?

    I'm being told that my chick is shivering, but the gauge says it's at a good temperature, the chick is not wet/moist, and it's in a small closet so there shouldn't be a draft... What's this shaky movement about?

    Sleep structure???

    Hey there community, I’m debating purchasing some kind of sleep structure for my new Quaker baby as a bit of extra comfort. But I don’t know if Puk is a male or female and I’m worried that a happy tent or something similar could trigger nesting behaviour and potentially egg laying. I’ve had a...

    New owner of a baby ekkie. Have questions

    I have just got a baby ekkie a few days ago from our pet store. Only around 6 weeks old and the sweetest little thing ever. I have experience with other birds like cockatiels, conures, ring necks and African Grey's but I don't think I realised how different it is to raising an ekkie baby until...

    So i had some mating birds for a while now, and one egg just finally hatched!! im so excited, but the information online is a bit scattered. It says i should remove it for handfeeding 3 weeks from birth, but it doesn't specify what to put in the formula, what tools to use, etc. I'm new to this...

    Bringing home a new Caique - some questions

    Hello everyone! I have had my female caique Moki for some months now and she is currently 9 months old (I've had her since she was 3 months old). She has a really big cage, full of toys and she gets plenty of attention/out of cage. However, as a common human being, I work a 9-to-5 job, meaning...

    Urgent Finch baby not being fed

    Hello, so i noticed the parents were not feeding this singular baby so i decided to take it inside to handfeed it. I am experienced with handfeeding both finches and parrots although i noticed this baby is not begging for food which might be why it was not getting food. It opens its mouth for a...

    Friend got a new Crimson-Bellied Conure, best way to raise/train him?

    Hello! My friend has just gotten a new Crimson-Bellied Conure who is around a month old. They want me to help them with raising and training the little guy. Some of the bird’s history: My friend bought him from a lady whose conures had accidentally bred (bit of a red flag IMO). He’s apparently...

    New human baby now conure biting

    Hi All. I’m hoping you have some advice please. I’ve had a green cheek conure named Tiki for the last 8 years. She’s been pretty friendly, steps up reliably, and absolutely loves cuddling in my hair. We haven’t done much training with her but have been in general pretty lucky with her behavior...

    Baby Caique not too playful?

    Hello everyone! 6 Days ago I got myself a female baby black-headed Caique (3 months old) from a reputable breeder in my country, along with a huge cage with many toys and perches. I was able to choose which baby to take home and this one was just so curious about me so I ended up bringing her...

    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...

    Hi everyone, I recently picked up a weaned baby lovebird (about 8 weeks old) that was fully weaned. I understand that some babies may revert to wanting comfort feeds upon arriving to a new home. Unfortunately, this baby doesn't seem remotely interested in eating on his own now that we have...

    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.
