    Parakeets and canaries?

    Hi! I've had a pet canary for a few years now. When the weather's nice, we let his cage out in our garden. Usually, a lot of birds flock nearby because my lil baby canary is a very messy eater, but today I came home and found a blue parakeet latching on to his cage for dear life. It was...

    New lovie doesn't like sleeping in his cage

    My new 4 month old lovie, Pokka, seems to like his cage, but hates sleeping in it at night. I try to get him in at 8:30 every night as I wake up at 8:00 AM, however, I always have to basically force him to go inside and when he is in, he's always trying to escape. He loves sleeping outside in my...

    What to do with a non-independent bird

    Hello everyone! I’ve recently gotten a cockatiel (Gnocchi) and I love him to pieces!! He is a very well behaved bird, but he has one main “problem area”...he really doesn’t like to be left alone. I am well aware that cockatiels have a reputation of being somewhat “clingy”, but in this case I...

    Perches and Toys

    Hello! I'm researching into budgies, and planning to buy a pair in a week or so, whenever I feel adequate and knowledgeable enough to be a good budgie parent. I have a few questions, and I thought I'd ask actual budgie owners for their opinions and their experiences. I'd extremely appreciate...

    Cage Location - I want to put my cockatiel in the main living area, but I’m not sure how safe it is.

    I have a cockatiel (Gnocchi), and he is a social butterfly (as I’ve heard lots of cockatiels are). I am currently keeping Gnocchi in my room, because...I have cats (I feel like there should be dramatic music here), but I feel as though this might not fit my Gnocchi’s big personality. You see...

    Trust Issues (Indian Ringneck)

    I purchased an Indian Ringneck (6 months old) around 4 days ago and has been in its cage since. Whenever I try to get really close to the cage it starts to frantically fly side to side and also does the same when I try to change its feed. It isn't tame so would like for it to gain some trust in...

    Moving budgies into new cage!

    I have recently bought a much larger cage for my 2 budgies. I’ve put a few perches and toys in there - along with treats to try and entice them in (all of the toys in there they are familiar with and the natural wood perches in there are the same as those in their current cage). They were a bit...

    Budgies in their new cage, but only on the sides of it

    Hi, So I transferred my two budgies into their new flight cage, and surprisingly it went smoothly. They aren’t scared at all and eat their treats when offered, preen, sleep and slightly move around. The only problem is that they’re doing all of this on the sides of the cage. Once they hopped...
