    Bird biting siblings and strangers at random

    I have a Quaker that bites strangers and two particular siblings at random. Not too frequently. One is complaining about it, but when I brought up the fact that with effort the behavior could stop. They started talking about how it's my pet and I should be putting the work into it and how they...

    When I first got Totoro (~5months), he seemed very gentle and nibbly(curiosity). I put him on my shoulder without any thoughts and let him out of the cage by himself. I was able to teach him to “step up” but he soon dropped it. Now with him biting, I’m trying to teach this to him again so that...

    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...

    Extremely aggressive Lovebird, Don't know what to do.

    Pictures What is the best way to move my untamed cockatiel to a new cage?

    Hello, I recently inherited a 5-6 year old cockatiel (Caesar) that was never tamed or taken out of his cage. I have had him for a year now, and he is a very sweet and happy bird who gets plenty of treats and toys. He sings all the time. He is currently in the cage that I received him in, a ~4...

    Mixed signals?

    Hi everyone! I've had my adorable yellowside green cheek conure for about 2 weeks. She's about 5 months. She warmed up to myself and my boyfriend at about the 4-5 day mark of having her. She hesitates or refuses to step up a lot, but I usually use treats to convince her to and she complies...

    Dominance and lovebirds?

    I have had dogs as pets most of my life and I have had birds for 11 years, (cockatiel, Cleo and parakeet - RIP Chico) and now two lovies, Gatsby and Olive. My previous heart dog, Maggie, was a dominant girl and challenged me up until she became too sick to do so. She succumbed to oral...
