    Parrot in College? Travel?

    Hi all, I posted before regarding getting a bird for college; I was given very good advice to rather wait until I was in college or after graduation - so I am currently still bird-free. I know more about my schedule and the college policy on pets, etc. - it's very pet friendly and we may bring...

    What should I do about insurance for my bird?

    I have been trying to find pet insurance for my bird but many places don’t have a section for birds and if they do it’s only the kind with deductible claims. But I want an insurance that pays right then. I was wondering if i should just get a credit card and pay off the vet fees with it?

    Weird droppings again

    Last time I talked about Luke’s droppings on here he got off of his antibiotic treatment and that I no longer go to the vet I brought him to for his infection. His poops went back to normal and were normal for weeks. He has been on his probiotic and everything was good and I didn’t change...

    Weight Health

    In my last thread in spoke about how luke was back to a healthy weight after his antibiotics caused him to not eat.

    Is this a bruise?

    This week a noticed a reddish brown mark appear on Luke’s beak. The mark isn’t flaky or anything and it looks like it’s flat and apart of the beak. You can see another section of his beak is trying to grow so I think he might have hurt himself but I’m not sure. He does come out of the cage and...
