    Parrotlet occasionally fainting?

    Hey there guys, So I've become aware of my parrotlet (smaller bird in my profile photo) fainting every now and then. This doesn't happen often, maybe once or twice every couple of months.. I think this may be because he holds in his poop as he likes to keep his cage clean, considering as...

    Bird baths

    Hello everyone, I wanted to ask if it's normal for a bird to take baths every day?. My ringneck takes baths in his water bowl sometimes more than once a day.

    I have changed my mind

    I did a lot more research and found that a parakeet better fits my life style. I am at school 7 hours everyday and I think that a parakeet is better. I found a bird store that sells hand raised parakeets for just 50 bucks each. I know I keep changing, but I think I have finally found the right...
