    Bird biting (help!)

    Where Can I Buy Safe Bird Toys For My Conure

    No plastics please or artificial dyes. My bird loves those little balls that are destructible and paper strings. Also does anyone know any safe bells? She loves them but the ones I bought felt sharp and I wasn’t sure if there was any lead or dangerous chemicals. Hanging bells are ok but she...

    New bird not doing anything?

    I recently got a grey cockatiel, his name is Rio and this is my first bird ever, he is constantly breathing heavily and has fluffed up feathers. He hasn’t eaten any of the veggies, pellets, or drank any water. I tried giving him treats and he won’t take them, or he’ll move away from my hand. He...

    Backpack bird Carrier or Bag Carrier?

    Since harness training is going to take a long time and because we just need a bird carrier, what kinda do you prefer? I would love to take my bird on walks so that she can get some vitamin D :D Also any tips with introducing the outside to birds would be great.

    Jealous Lovebird ??

    My lovebird, Peaches, has a habit of biting whenever I have company over. She loves seeing new people and is quick to fly right to them, but whenever I get close (usually to pick her up myself or remove her if requested), I receive a nice, painful bite. When it's just her and I, she's incredibly...

    Baby Bird’s Wings are Twitching

    He’s always been kind of like that but we noticed that today he has been extra twitchy and more vocal today. We are setting an appointment with an avian vet but what do you guys think of his behavior? Is he okay? I’ve been told that some birds make noises when they eat but he seems to make these...

    We have been doing target training, step ups, and recall?( not sure if that’s the right word but just flying to our hands)What are some useful or essential things we should teach him?? Also when do you know when a bird has mastered a trick? When he no longer needs to see a treat? Also for...

    How Much Oranges Can My Baby Conure Have?

    Today is Kiwipo’s fourth day home. We have been introducing to him a variety of foods. So far he only likes oranges in the fruit compartment. Oranges are acidic so how much should I give him? Right now he is eating 1 piece of a cutie orange and totally annihilated it. Is this too much for him...

    When Should I Start Introducing Pellets to my Baby Conure?

    He is roughly 5-6weeks old and we have had him for 3 days now. He is extremely tamed and is VERY food motivated. He just got done with liquid feedings and was fed seeds and soft grain/veggie mixture. When should I start introducing pellets? I was recommended and have bought a large bag of...

    My Baby Conure Squints his Eyes. Is he sick or tired??

    I noticed that sometimes when he eats his food he looks like he’s squinting or slowly closing his eyes. I don’t believe he is sick because there are no other signs. His poop looks completely normal. He loves to fly. Is he just tired? Is this a sign of pleasure? He just got weened off liquids and...
