    Video Potentially Blind Parrotlet?

    I feel like I'm posting an awful lot lately, but I can't get over how excited I am to have other people to talk to about my birds now as well as having them. Anyway, I hope I am on the right thread, and I figured I'd have my best chance of finding others with similar experiences on this one...

    Help! Blind Dove

    Hi! I'm new to the forum here and new to bird ownership! ( I am aware of bird care, I grew up around exotic birds and I used to volunteer at an exotic bird sanctuary. I haven't ever owned one because my father does not like the noise). ANYWAY... I just rescued a 20 yr old blind white male dove...

    Recently blinded bird, please advise

    Our 7 year old cockatiel was blinded yesterday by one of our other birds. It was a lightening fast and brutal attack. She is in the hospital and has already lost one eye, the vet thinks she will likely lose the other. My question is whether or not it is fair to keep her alive. We love this...

    Blind Senegal

    Cage Setup Help for Old/Blind Cockatiel

    So you all know I have Ian, a 16 year old Cockatiel (he'll be 17 in May!). Since I've had him I've tried to help him be more comfortable, but it's very difficult. He has bad cataracts and cannot see well. Adding toys to his cage scares him because he can't SEE what they are, and I dont have any...
