    My GCC is biting all of the sudden

    Hello, I have had a sweet baby GCC, Tiki for about a week and a few days now. He was such a sweet heart for all this time with only a few bites when he was curious and just feeling with his beak. For the last two days, however, he all the sudden gets an attitude and bites down hard on our...

    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...

    My first Cockatiel suddenly becomes agressive, HELP ME PLS

    Um, hello! I'm new to cockatiels... and to forums... and to birds at all, actually. A few days ago I bought my first cockatiel who is approximately 7 months old. I kept him inside the cage for the first few days; he would eat from my hand and stand on it and ask for my presence when I went to...

    Biting Feet?!

    So, Earlier today, My cockatiel Sunny was sitting in her cage and consuming some millet, just as my lovebird flew on the outside of her cage and climbed down to where the millet was and started eating it with her. She was on the inside.They looked so happy! He was tweeting and flapped his wings...

    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 She's such a good girl...

    ... Or is she?... Is she really? o_O Of course she is! I'm thinking this is her way of telling me, "there's no more millet left on here, fill it now human fool!" :)

    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...

    Aggressive Adopted Quaker

    I adopted Eddie about a year and a half ago and I don't know his background. Any time I get too close to him, he starts hissing and trying to bite me. He always seems really comfortable around me, but when I try to handle him, he starts going a little crazy. Usually, Eddie and I just sit...

    Video I´m confused: What is going on?

    I have experienced one of the weirdest moments with my birds today. I want to share it and see if you guys have any insight as to what may be causing the behavioural shift. So the basic backstory is Aldora and Sydney do NOT get on. They will both attack each other, and neither back down from a...

    Hi from Anna and me in St Maarten

    Hello everyone It's been a while since I posted. Life with Anna is like having a naughty child in the house. Sometimes she is so much fun and so loving and other times she is a very bad girl. She is very affectionate with me and I whenever I go in the aviary or take her out, all she wants to...

    Green cheeked conure biting

    I, as of December 30, 2018, Got a new pet conure. I haven’t had a bird for a few years, so I would say I’m learning. He does have a good lifestyle though. Anyways the problem is that he bites you when you hold him or touch his cage. He runs up to bite my finger when I am adjusting things in his...

    Well that's a first!

    today, surprisingly, i got bitten by a bird and he drew blood. now, again, luckily it wasn't my bird. I was at my local bird store, and someone had brought their caiques in to be groomed. I asked a little bit about them, picked up the 'nice' one, and went back to hanging out with Jeffrey...

    Urgent Kraz tiel's foot is discolored and lifeless

    THE FUN NEVER CEASES IN THIS HOUSE!!! Last night I noticed Kraz hobbling, but when I opened his door I realised that the cage was slightly unsteady, and assumed he was just wobbly because the cage moved when I opened his door. This morning I can see it's his leg. Yesterday, Taco...

    New bird guy....This is going to be an adventure...

    Hello, I'm sorry for the novel I'm about to write, but I enjoy typing and explaining things in detail. Truth be told, I don't even know where to begin. I of course have been a regular lurker for some time during my research phase over the last 5-6 months. Long short story long, I thought a...

    Bad bird

    2 months ago I got 2 love birds, they were 38 days and I hand fed them and I played with the one that was supposed to be mine (the other one is my mothers) for two hours plus a day. For the most part the two birds are kept separate. We have noticed that the birds are complete opposites. Her bird...

    New GCC. What counts as a bite vs a nip?

    Hi, I'm new to the forum but have lurked quite a while! The reason being that I had met a lovely 6 year old GCC at a bird specialty shop and after a few weeks ended up taking him home with me. I felt confident in his temperament because we spent a lot of time together in the store, which they...
