    i have 2 cockatiels that have started to breed and just laid some eggs. My question is should i let the parents incubate the eggs or is it best to take the eggs now and incubate them myself? It is their first time breeding and the eggs look completely fine. They have gotten very aggressive so i...

    Baby Caique Quaking

    I don't have much experience with baby birds but am wondering if when he's quaking and kinda squawking because he's hungry? He's almost three months old and eats quite a bit but only the fresh foods, he seems to be avoiding eating his pellets. I'm worried he might still need to be hand fed? I've...

    Screaming, Weaning Baby Cockatiel

    Hey guys! Currently, hand-feeding about a 6-week old cockatiel named Manny. He has been doing great so far but I have found he does not show much interest in his seed throughout the day. Sometimes he nibbles on millet but not too much of it. He also screams a lot of the day when he sees me ( I...

    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...
