    Urgent Cockatiel bloody nose

    My 2 year old cockatiel just sneezed and some blood came out. I immediately called my vet but they can't see her until a week from now. I still made the appointment but in the meantime I'm so scared for her and I don't know what to do. She's still eating and drinking and it might just be because...

    Bloody Beak

    My Green Cheeks lower beak looks to have chipped (?) and has a small amount of visible blood in it. She is still eating fine, using her beak and grinding so I wonder if this is just from the molt she’s going through ??? I’ll try to get a photo. It’s also been a very stressful time for her in...

    URGENT: bloody cere after running into a window

    Geebs, my cockatiel, is clipped and slowly growing her wings back in, but we didn't expect her to be so good at flying so quickly. Today, something dropped and she was so startled that she flew around the room and straight into our glass door. She fell about four feet. She climbed up to my...

He seems fine, he’s talking, climbing, eating and drinking. I just noticed this a hour ago. Should i be worried? Again you cant...

    Urgent Budgie Blood Spots?

    I am worried about my budgie. He has a few blood spots that weren't there last night and this morning I saw them... Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated! The one spot on his one wing is the easiest to see. Above his cere and on the other wing is harder to see.

    Urgent Open sore on back?

    Hi everyone! My cockatiel Marvin has had very dry / itchy skin as of recently. I realized that the humidity in our home was very low- about 30%. I bought a hydrometer and am now keeping track of the humidity levels in his room, and I also bought a humidifier which is near his cage. I’ve been...

    Blood on beak?

    I came home from work and saw that my bird had blood right above the black arrow. It’s not much and wasn’t super fresh. I out some clot gel on it just in case it started to bleed again. The gel also has a disinfect in it. There appears to be a bit of blood on his perches where he rubs his beak...

    Limitations of physical exam

    History I have an 8 year old Linnie. We have never missed an annual health checkup. Every annual checkup, the vet said that he is healthy. He has a healthy weight, he acts normal; talking, eating, drinking, chirping, making demon noises in the middle of the night after the light is off, humping...

    Urgent Injured wing!

    My Indian ringneck parrot has an injured wing! I was so scared when I saw it, I searched it up (which I knew I shouldn’t have done because it makes me panic even more seeing the results) and it came up with info about tumours and stuff like that. That made me break down crying, I’m really...

    911 Blood in poop!?

    I came home and found my bird pooping dark red poops. I haven't fed any dark red foods and she doesn't eat colored pellets. I can't get in to my avian vet until tomorrow morning, possibly later. What can I do for her now? Edit: She's also acting "normal" (talking, kissing, eating, etc), but I...

    Urgent Sudden blood on wing?!

    I heard my conure make a noise and so I peeked on her, took her out to give a kiss before putting her back to bed and noticed recently dried blood on the top of the wing. I'm not sure what happened but I'm freaking out a bit, any clue what happened? What exactly should I do? She had blood...

    I was on my computer and after a few hours I went into my room and I saw blood on the seed catcher net. I looked around and saw my GCC with dried blood on his foot and lost feathers above his leg. I searched up some websites but none of them had my situation. One said take your bird to the again...

    What Is Your Opinion On Blood Feathers?

    Hello everyone! I have endured several years of my sun conure being incredibly clumsy, and as a result, fractured/broken blood feathers amuck! At first we were extremely worried about them and would pull them out immediately more out of fear than for logic's sake. However as the years have gone...

    Blood Feather?

    I was just holding my bird and I noticed this bleeding feather on the inside of his wing. Is it okay? It has a really long shaft and is bloody at the top.
