    9 Mo Old Male White Belly Caique

    Hi everyone. We got our white belly caique when he was 4 months old and now he is nine months old. Before we brought him home, he lived in the same cage with his brother and got into a flight with his brother. The bird shop owner had to give him stiches on the right side of his body between his...

    Mouth obsession…

    So I know that certain behaviors might be seen as hormonal but what my umbrella cockatoo has been doing lately is very confusing to me. He watches me talk while I’m around other people (he’s super social and loves everybody so he comes to work with me sometimes) and maybe it’s because I’m not...

    Conure behaviour out of control. HELP!

    Hey guys, so recently my conure has had the worst behaviour he has ever had. I think it started about two weeks ago, but it could have been sooner. He's about 2 1/2 years old, suspected male. Out of the blue, he started eating everything. He's never done this before. He's eaten 3 cords, a...

    Weird behavior?

    My cockatiel hangs onto the side of the cage, holds her wing up on the side, and buries her head into her wing and kind of rubs her head into her wing. She grooms herself normally on her perch, but every so often she does this and I don’t know why?

    What’s he doing?

    I’ve had my parakeet for about two years now and found that he’s began to do this a few months ago. He’s been standing on a perch and tapping his beak on it. He sometimes acts like he has licked something and is tasting it. He has plenty of toys and enrichment to keep busy but he prefers to do...

    Conure hates her new cage

    I need a little advice here. On Christmas we got our GCC a new, hilariously large, flight cage and she hates it! We loaded it with treats and food and brand new toys, but she doesn't want to be anywhere near it unless we're in the room. We tried putting her in it and leaving the room, but she...

    Is Pipi mad at me?

    My baby Pipi (cockatiel) lived with me after my bf irresponsibly bought her for me even though I did not have a stable housing situation (roommates don't like birds, and I am a student). My roommates and I were able to work it out and I kept her in my dorm with us for about 3 months. During...

    Chompy Conure

    Hello! I recently got a conure October 2nd of this year. She’s a 7 month old Turquoise Green cheek conure. She’s a cutie but to say she’s nippy is an understatement. I honestly at first thought she might’ve been chomping out of stress which couldve very well been since she was new to everything...
