    About Candles Near Birds

    So, I was wondering a bit about candles. I have a lot of them. None are strong enough to smell all over the entire house, but they do have a scent. Assuming that I do decide to adopt some feathered friends (most likely budgies or cockatiels), I will have them in a less populated, small room with...

    Bird Tricks?

    Hey! I have an eight month female cockatiel who so far only knows two tricks. She knows how to hang upside on my finger, and to fly to my shoulder when I whistle to her. I noticed that she has a LOT of fun when training (even though she's really stubborn and food-driven :laugh:), so do any of...

    Microwave ovens=neurological problems in parrots?

    hi all. I started volunteering at a small bird rescue in my area. I was told the reason there wasn’t a microwave oven in the bird building was because it causes neurological disorders in birds. I have a flock of 4 rescues at home, and naturally started looking into this. I’m having trouble...

    Choosing a Bird

    So, I've done a lot of research and a lot of digging around for which bird might be right for me. But of course, I'm always up for more advice. I've talked to my family about it and they all seem fine with getting a bird. I believe being flexible is very important when picking a bird, because no...

    Am I Being Too Paranoid About Bird Safety?

    After having this bird for only a little over a week, I've realized how much of a paranoid bird-mom I'm being. I'm throwing out Teflon pans, checking every product in my house to make sure its safe and just being super paranoid in general. Am I being too paranoid here or not? Everyone I talk to...

    GCC companion?

    Recently I have gotten a GCC and I absolutely love him to pieces. My dad, as reluctant as he was to get a bird, is also obsessed with him, and thinks he is adorable ^-^. We are looking to get another parrot soon, preferably a small bird that can live in his current cage. (it is tiny and we...
