    What are signs that a cockatiel loves you?

    I got my cockatiel, Sprite, about a month and 1/2 ago. He was 10 weeks when I got him. I spend every second I'm at home with him. He likes to be out of the cage and likes to sit on me. That is all he wants to do: be on me. I was wondering if he is bonded to me or is indifferent. During night...

    New owner of GCCs

    I am a new, first time owner of a pair of sister green cheeks that were given to me. They are about 4-5 years old. The couple that had them, one of them was allergic, and the other began working all the time so they just didn't have the time to spend with them that the girls deserved. I am...

    A note on scritchy-scratchies

    Hi all! I joined today because I often come to this site for advice, and I wanted to share something! Cello is my little guy, he's a peach-face and he's been my partner in crime for a little over a year now. He loves scritchy-scratchies, and when I scratch him I always smooth the feathers...

    Is this a sign of progress???

    hi! I adopted a grey named Doot'na about a year and a half ago. She immediately took to my husband but was disdainful of me. I have been working to earn her love and my husband has no interest in her and so doesn't interact with her much. A few days ago I noticed that she suddenly was behaving...

    Who is my bird bonding with?

    Okay this might be a long post so I will try to keep it short. I bought a GCC back in June to be my bird. I bought him from a petco store because he was in poor health and it broke my heart to see him in a small tank with nothing to do all day. So I purchased him and all his necessary supplies...

    Bonding with a (somewhat) new bird?

    Hello all. I brought home my ringneck, Yoshi a month and a half ago. He comes out of his cage on his own, and is pretty content on my shoulder. The problem is that he does not really like my fingers, so when he's perched on them, he bites really hard until I put him on my shoulder :bash:. Is...
