    Budgie Behavior?

    Hi. I have a 1 year old budgie boy. He is very happy and talkative. When i first got him, i started training with him to hop on my finger. He was amazing at it. Then all of a sudden he decided that he liked biting my finger, rather than hopping on it and taking the treat. Its as though he got...

    My conure prefers men over women

    I recently got a 4 year old green cheek conure. His past owners were women and I'm not sure if he was ever around men. That's why I'm a bit suspicious he had a bad experience or something. My brother and dad can hold him and pet them all they want, and he won't even give them a nibble. Then...

    Sun Conure biting

    Hi everyone! I am new to this community. I just got a sun conure recently, about a couple weeks ago, she is 6 months old. She adjusted quite quickly, and became comfortable in a matter of a week.

    Sun conure biting/screaming when playing instruments. Seeking advice

    Hey everybody! New to this site. My girlfriend and I just adopted a rescue sun conure from the SPCA and we adore her. She is extremely cuddly (especially with me) and loud (to be expected from a sunny). We've had her for about 3 weeks, and one issue I have noticed with her is that she acts very...

    I have a 5 y/o green cheek conure named Kiwi (I know not very unique) and up until a few months ago she absolutely loved my boyfriend.

    I feel like i dont understand him at all :(

    Hi! So, I've had my black capped conure for around 4 weeks now. And I'm aware that it takes way longer to bond with and be friends with a bird, but I feel like me and him just..don't understand each other? Or where to go? He's 6 years old, and I knew getting an older bird would be a bit...

    New human baby now conure biting

    Hi All. I’m hoping you have some advice please. I’ve had a green cheek conure named Tiki for the last 8 years. She’s been pretty friendly, steps up reliably, and absolutely loves cuddling in my hair. We haven’t done much training with her but have been in general pretty lucky with her behavior...

    My bird is not going back in his cage

    I had my bird for almost a year now and he never had this problem before. After when I played with my bird, he won’t go back in his cage. He starts to bite me and hiss at me when I place my hand near him. He knows when I’m going to put him back in his cage, because he doesn’t bite me otherwise...

    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...

    Sun conure bites and won’t let go

    I just got a conure yesterday and have had him all set up in my room, he likes hanging out on the top of the cage and to talk. He is very beautiful my only problem is his biting. I know birds are anxious about new environments so I understood at first and would leave him alone unless it was...

    One conure super calm, the other furious with me.

    So I have two male green cheek conures, I've only had them for a few months now. They were both fine with me up until this point, then one of them got sick about a month ago (Salem). He has been taken to a vet, all good now. When he got sick his personality changed, he used to be more neutral...

    Green cheek conure all of suddenly afraid of me

    Hello! I adopted my Green Cheek Conure, Sparky, 2 years ago from my sister. He doesn't get along well with other people, and was attacking me a LOT in the beginning. But I finally got him to get comfortable around me to the point where we cuddled every night. But a couple months ago I got them...

    Mirror-Crazed Caique

    Hello! About 6 weeks ago I adopted a caique, Loki, who I was told is around 3 years old. I didn’t get into parrots until a little over a year ago and am learning as much as I can when I have time. He has bit me twice and both times, looking back, were avoidable (if I had researched more I...

    My lovebird is biting me after I introduced her to a new lovebird

    Okay so this is going to be a long post but I'm generally confused. So Kiwi, rosy-faced my 3-month-old lovebird, my "female" lovebird (according to a breeder) flew to my dad while he was standing outside and she was really tamed. This was 28 days ago. She was extremely sweet and used to come to...
