    201 (202) Stainless steel parrot cage *UPDATE*

    So I went ahead & purchased the "201" Stainless steel parrot cage, it's stamped 202 so not exactly sure why they're advertised as 201 when 202 has slightly higher manufacturing costs & corrosion resistance properties but anyway... Received it the other day & right off the bat I noticed some...

    Kakariki - Food aggression

    So I've had my Kakariki for just over five months now and for the first 2 months everything was fine. Maybe about 3 months ish he has becoming quite aggressive when I try to remove his food out of his cage, I only do this when I need to change food or give him a top up. He will see my hand...

    What's your bird's weird quirk?

    Just curious- what's one thing your bird does that's weird or strange? My bird gets scared of the original Mario music from the 80's. He also loves to knock things off of shelves.

    Supreme 201 stainless cage, repair paint or diy?

    I've got an Alexandrine that is chewing the paint from her current cage & am in need of a solution but have limited funds. The only appropriate size & wire spaced cages I can find in Australia are the Supreme 201 stainless for $1000 & the Feather land 304 for $3000, I can't find any other...

    Advice on chop

    I'm thinking of getting a food processor to help chop my bird food. It's just really hard cutting veggies and fruit everyday by hand, and a food processor would save me a LOT of time! I've really wanted to make chop for my bird as well, so I can be sure that he's getting the nutrients he needs...

    Help!! I need information on this bathroom freshener...

    My stepdad bought Bowl Fresh to make our bathroom smell good, and now it smells like a hospital all over the house and in my room where my parakeet, Norman, can smell it. I'm very scared, as it contains paradichlorobenzene, which I've heard can kill your bird by just inhaling the fumes. Will...

    Bumble foot?

    So I saw this on my cockatiels foot today, is it a scab? Could it potentially be bumble foot? I'm not really sure but thought it would be safe to get some opinions. Thanks!

    Cockatiel beak

    This might be a stupid question but I just noticed my cockatiels beak is always partially open, and he can’t seem to close it. Is this normal or should I see a vet? I’ve looked at other pictures of cockatiels on the internet and some have their beak closed while some are open so I wanted to make...

    Video Chirping when happy?

    If I get close enough to Romeo, (3 years old this past February) I hear almost like a whispering, chattering, while pacing side to side when he sees food, that he knows is his, in my hand. Romeo (☝A video of what I’m talking about)

    Budgie is looking sick, what do I do?

    I got my male budgie Sky about a year ago. Just today we noticed he was very sleepy during the day. When he came out of the cage, he ate a few seeds and then just perched on my hand with his eyes closed. We tried to offer him some spray millet but he wouldn’t take them which was very worrisome...
