    Strange Behavior?

    Not sure if I am overthinking this, but my Rico boy kinda changed since I got him. I got him right before Christmas on Dec 17, and he got used to me, and used to hang around me. He used to fly to where I was and sit on my knees/chest/stomach. He's not a hand bird just yet (we are working on...

    Is my cockatiel being aggressive or just overbearing?

    My parakeet always tries to go to kiss my cockatiel. But whenever he does my cockatiel seems kinda aggressive. I have seen them regurgitate to each other many times and have also seen my cockatiel making heart wings while singing to my parakeet many times. When they regurgitated to each other...

    Frustration with eclectus

    Hey there! My male eclectus is now 1 year and 9 months old, and his beak is nearly fully orange—just a tiny dot left, practically all gone. For the first year I had him, everything was good, but I had to train him to trust me for quite some time, even though he was just a baby. It seemed like...

    New 2 y/o female tiel suddenly aggressive after a month.

    Hello! I currently own two cockatiels. Bébé was my first, who just turned four. She came from a shizzty bird store but at least seemed to be parent raised and grew up with other tiels. She has always been very timid but in time became a very sweet and curious tiel. However because of her...

    Hanging sideways on the wall of the cage?

    Recently my budgie Genji (7) has been hanging onto the wall of the cage, sideways, a lot. Specifically its next to his cuttle bone. There's a perch leading right up to it, but he'd rather chew on it while hanging sideways I suppose. That's all well and good, but often time he doesn't even chew...

    Introducing Cockatiels - Aggression??

    Hi everyone, I recently introduced my new cockatiel to my old cockatiel and have noticed some strange behavior. Ever since I introduced them, they spend a lot of time out together sitting on my shoulder or knees and preening without paying much mind to one another. However, every so often, my...

    So my 7yp Budgie, Genji, is going for his pshycial/general check up on Tuesday, but he seems a bit off and I wanted to check if it sounds like I should call the emergency line, or wait until his appointment (pending worse symptoms of course) Hes been a bit less social with me, nipping at me and...

    Young Caique Obsessed With Nose

    I recently acquired a six month old white bellied caique and she is an absolute dream. However, she is obsessed with my nose. Like to the point of spending all of our one-on-one time trying to grab it. She’s not being aggressive. She straight up is just trying to lick inside my nostrils. Of...

    What? Okay...

    Not an emergency, but Jolly is seriously just... he's a handful. Love him to the moon and back, but cockatoos are definitely unlike any large bird I've owned. His poops are still loose around 2 or 3 weeks later but go back and forth between normal and slightly watery. We haven't raised a ton of...

    Outstretched wings?

    My 6 year old CAG was let onto the couch to spend time with us out of his cage. He began chirping and outstretching his wings when we all sat down. Is this mating behavior? I’m not worried, because he looks extremely lively and happy.
