    Urgent Frodo dropped a feather with a slight bit of blood at the end

    So far he seems fine, and no obvious/major bleeding after a few look-overs. He’s in bed right now and I’ve popped over to check on him a couple times and he seems just fine. I’m just extremely paranoid and would appreciate some reassurance. He was sitting next to me when something freaked him...

    4 1/2 month old Conure molting?

    Hi all, my almost 5 month GCC appears to be molting. I am concerned because it seems so young. He’s been losing a fair amount of the fluffy down feathers for no apparent reason (no plucking, and even when he’s not grooming). Behavior wise he doesn’t seem out of the ordinary- sleeping as usual...

    My budgie doesn’t seem interested in me

    I have been working with my budgie for a few months now. He used to jump up onto my hand and seemed interested in being with me. He started biting when I put my hand in the cage roughly 2 weeks ago. I have worked on the biting and he does it less now. But he doesn’t seem interested in me anymore...

    Swollen/warm leg after splint

    My bird fractured her leg almost two months ago. She just got her splint taken off by the doctor yesterday, however today it does look a bit swollen and feels warm. Is this normal? Is there any way I can help her leg or will it heal on its own? Her fractured leg is healed now.

    Hey Guys! I was just wondering… we got an aviary about one week ago and are now starting to fix it up and put a base on it.

    Need help choosing between a Budgerigar and a Cockatiel!

    Hi everyone! I’m new here. We’ve been thinking of purchasing a new bird for a while now and we’ve narrowed it down to a budgie and a cockatiel. We used to have a green budgie, but unfortunately he passed away back in 2020 after 9 years. We love budgies but we feel that a new one might never...
