    Another question

    Should I keep my bird in a dimmer room where there isn’t a lot of light? I heard a lot of light can cause growth of sexual organs and my room is a lot dimmer than the bonus room that he is in currently.:thinking::sad14:

    Bird doing weird thing with his tongue?

    I am very confused. My green cheek conure seems to be itching his tongue a lot (?). I've only noticed it since yesterday, and it looks very unusual, he sticks out his tongue and then uses the tip of his beak or sometimes the bars of his cage to scratch it. I've seen this behavior only once...

    Hi there! I have an indian ringneck who is 3 years old and got him a little over a year ago. It was a bit rough in the beginning as he has a lot of anger/agression in him but ruled it off as bluffing.

    Normal baby budgie behavior?

    I recently got an English budgie around 4 weeks old. I didn’t know until later that getting an unweaned bird wasn’t a good idea :(( but the breeder told us it was fine at the time, and even tried to give us a featherless baby for free along with him. It’s not something I will ever repeat. But he...

    Parrots Playing With Molted Feathers

    My lovebird, Peaches, has a tendency to play with her feathers once they've fallen off as she's preening. She'll chew on them, take them with her when she flies, hold them with her feet, and chase after them if I take them away from her. She typically does this with her primary feathers, but...

    Conure Chattering?

    My Yellow-Sided Conure: Daenerys has always made this chattering sound since the day we rescued her. If I had to compare it to anything: It sounds like a quieter version of an angry Donald Duck. None of my other Conures make this sound, not even her cage-mate: Shades (Greencheek.) Is this...

    Aggressive Abused Conure

    I have 9 birds in total, all rescues: 4 Budgies, 4 Conures and an African Grey. October, last year, I rescued 2 of my 4 Conures: A male and a female Greencheek, both 6 years old. They had no names when they were turned in, which I found odd that someone could own birds for 6 years and never name...
