    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...

    Green Cheek Hates Hands... But Loves Me!

    Hello, it has been a week since I have had my first 4 month old GCC ^^ He is awesome, very playful and loves being on me. The first thing he does when I open is cage is try to get on my shoulder. He is starting to learn too that nipping can hurt me, so he stills tries to nip, but not so it...

    Help!! Night Fright Question

    My baby is coming home this weekend, and an issue I had previously overlooked has begun bothering me. I am a student, and I am concerned that my alarm clock going off early in the morning might trigger my bird to have a night fright. Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing? Hoping it...

    Help!! Is she feeding it?

    Hi, my budgie’s first egg of her clutch hatched yesterday evening, and I am unsure if she has been feeding it. Its crop appears empty but the bird’s belly looks very round, although that could be from absorbing what was left of the egg. I have only checked on it a few times but I have yet to see...

    My GCC will no longer "step up"?

    Hi there everyone! - I'm new to Avian Avenue and I have a new green cheek conure that I've had for just a few weeks (my first bird, too!). I didn't ask his exact age but it sounded like he is only several months old, less than a year at least. When I got him he would eagerly step up either onto...

    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...

    3 week old love bird won’t eat. Help!!

    hi guys, two days ago I was given a 3 week old lovie orphan. I’ve hand raised cocktails in the past with no issues but my new lovie won’t eat formula! I’ve tried syringe and spoon, changing formulas but I’ve had no luck. I’ve only managed to half fill his crop twice in two days. He won’t open...

    Pictures Drinking water

    I remember saying that my new cockatiel was 1month old but he's actually 2 months and a week. I only learned that you shouldn't take birds who aren't fully weaned after the fact, so now it's my responsibility, but I only need to handfeed him once a day at night. It has been very smooth...
