    Is it possible to gain trust of 20 year old neglected Sun Conure?

    Hello all, thank you in advance for any information you can give me as I have tried to do a lot of research and I can not seem to come to a particularly good information or method in my case for my bird. My case is rather embarrassing and complicated and I am trying to do right by it now. I have...

    Cage aggression?

    Hello! I was wondering if anyone has suggestions to tone down cage aggression. My Quaker that I got pretty recently is very friendly once out of his cage but when he’s in it or on it he can be pretty nasty. For instance I was trying to change his food while he was in the cage (my mistake) I...

    Aggressive and anxious behavior in Blue Fronted Amazon

    My blue fronted Amazon is around 30 years old and is a male. I got him about a year ago, my aunt knew someone who couldn’t care for the bird anymore as he belonged to their parner who had passed away. I took him in and he’s been very anxious from the beginning. He can to me in a very small cage...

    Kakariki - Food aggression

    So I've had my Kakariki for just over five months now and for the first 2 months everything was fine. Maybe about 3 months ish he has becoming quite aggressive when I try to remove his food out of his cage, I only do this when I need to change food or give him a top up. He will see my hand...

    Aggressive female budgie or just play?

    Hi, I'm not sure if there has already been a post on this, if so, I'm sorry for the repeat. We got two new budgies from the pet store a little over a month ago (one male and one female). I'm new to owning budgies and only had a single cockatiel as a child, so I'm really very limited in my...

    Should I rescue this Quaker?

    So there is this Quaker I have had my eyes on for a while, (his name is Taiyou, he's in my signature). He lives at my relative's house in another state, but whenever I am down there I get to spend time with him cause I usually stay at said person's house. He is on a seed diet, clipped, and seems...

    Weaning process Lovebird and cage time?

    Hi everyone! I have some questions for you! I already posted similar questions in the Loverbird Lane but I have more questions and it might make more sense to post it here to get more answers related to weaning! A couple days before Christmas I got a new lovebird and it wasn't completely...

    Rehomed 17 year old African Grey - territorial cage issues

    Hi, I recently adopted a 17-year-old male African Grey. The bird had been owned by an older gentleman who got Alzheimers and I was told, the bird named Bo hadn't been much out of the cage, been fed seeds only, was pretty much a wild bird and no one dared go near his cage. Bo can't fly and we...

    Conure friendly after death of other parrot

    I have a lovely sun concure who was incredibly affectionate for over 6 years, but after going to college and keeping her back home, she stayed pretty happy still until about 6 months ago. We ended up getting another sun concure to give her a companion and she seemed good for awhile. Fast forward...

    Ok, I am about to ask a very dumb question so prepare yourselves... I assume most if not ALL parrots get very grumpy late at night and potentially aggressive (well, lets just continue to call it grumpy) as a result. I'm probably going to get a lot of negative comments for this, but it was...

    New cage!

    Hello fellow parronts! I am SUPER excited, because as you already read I've got my GCC a brand new cage WITH brand new toys and perches!! At first I he wasn't really into the cage much, but within minutes my feathered friend found it worthy of his presence I'll be adding pictures of him and...

    Not letting me give treats or get close, just bites.

    I just got him the other day, and i left him to sit where he could see me and get adjusted. This morning i tried to slowly give him a treat, which he completely ignored and went straight for my hand to bite. I want to give him treats just to make him have a positive view of me, but i dont know...

    I Need help with my IRN not leaving the cage.

    I have a 5 month old IndianRingneck, but it just won't leave the cage. Threats' get the bird to step up on my hand in the cage here and then so I can put him inside, but if I don't have a treat or anything to distract it and stick my hand in the cage and ask it to step up it will try to lunges...

    Cage Aggression? HELP?

    As many of you know I brought Cooper the GCC home on Thursday night. I noticed right away that he hates when I touch his cage near the door. He tries to nip at my fingers. What I've been doing to solve this problem is holding up my inhaler (because he doesn't know what it is) and he backs away...

    Hello From Columbus, OH

    My name is Jake. I'm a gamer, a hair stylist, and a parrot lover. I have a Sun Conure (Drakos), a Quaker (Sky), and two budgies (Frosty and Storm). As I'm sure most people don't join on a whim, I do have a little bit of a situation: Currently I've had to downsize and my Sun and Quaker are...

    Green Cheek Conure bobs head and then bites

    Hello! So I recently got a Pineapple Green Cheek Conure and he's (not sure if it's a boy or a girl) about two, almost three months old. Sometimes when I take him out of his cage and put him on the top of the cage, he'll start rapidly bobbing his head and then bite my hand hard. What does this...

    Parrotlets in Bird Room - Hazard to Other Birds?

    I have had a pair of parrotlets in quarantine for nearly a month, and was planning to transition them into a new cage in my bird room sometime in the next few weeks. However, I have been reading about more aggressive hookbills doing serious damage to or killing other birds FROM WITHIN THEIR OWN...
