    Seek and Destroy.

    Hi, I am new to the group and this is my first post. I have had birds for a long time and think I know their body language pretty well. I have a new Green Cheek Conure, he’s 12 weeks old. He’s been hand reared but I don’t think handled too much so he is hand tame. Not silly tame. The baby...

    Playing rough and nipping

    I need some help with my pineapple GC. We have had him for about 6 months and rescued him (from our backyard, no knowledge of previous owner or age/gender to be certain). From what the vet says and based on what he looked and acted like when we found him, he was most likely 5 months - 1 year...

    At Wits End with Bipolar GCC

    So my conure, Gordi, is going to be 3 years old in June, and I would say his first hormonal season was last year. I knew that he would probably get nippy each spring but once last spring ended I thought the worst was over. How wrong I was. One night about a week ago, Gordi went to sleep as a his...

    How to stop biting as it's happening?

    Fiona has been really on edge lately because my sister is coming home from college for the weekend, and she shares a room with me. Because of this, Fiona isn't very excited to have to share a room with her too! She acts like she wants to be around me, and even will fly to my shoulder on her own...

    Cockatiel mirror/video/sound aggression

    My male cockatiel is usually pretty comfortable and loving around me if not somewhat indifferent, but I’ve noticed something weird lately. I know not to give my cockatiel mirrors as they tend to get obsessive over them, but sometimes my cockatiel finds a way to talk to his own shadow/reflection...

    I feel like an idiot

    Slade has been doing so well so I keep trying to see how far he can go slowly. I know he isn't always good passing by people but I tried it today, I walked by my husband sitting on the couch. On the way out he was fine. But on the way back he head bobbed, which usually means happy and excited...

    This is why you listen to the person the bird is bonded with...

    So those of you who have checked out my threads know about Slade and how when I adopted him he mauled my thumb and I still took him home. I saw a traumatized bird who had been through 3 homes till me, who was afraid of hands because of the infamous earthquake method to get a bird to stop biting...

    Video Aldora is happy again :)

    So we´ve done the eggs... done the mood swings... done with all the aggression... and now she´s calmer again. She is much more active, coming out of her cage more often, flying more and in turn, coming to greet me more. And because she´s not hormonal now, she doesn´t attack the little ones for...
