    A chance to adopt a Sun Conure

    We have an 8 months old caique, unknown gender. He has been living with us for 4 months. Now we have a chance to adopt a 5 year old sun conure. From what i understand, the poor thing has been neglected, meaning, no toys in the cage and almost no attention from the owner. The conure looks ok ...

    Well that's a first!

    today, surprisingly, i got bitten by a bird and he drew blood. now, again, luckily it wasn't my bird. I was at my local bird store, and someone had brought their caiques in to be groomed. I asked a little bit about them, picked up the 'nice' one, and went back to hanging out with Jeffrey...

    Our Little Ones Have Arrived

    First impressions

    FINALLY got a chance to hold a Caique. Not a BHC, but beggars can't be choosers. Only got a minute or two to hang out with him as this was at the bird fair this past weekend in Raleigh, but still very happy. I have been researching them for what feels like an eternity and with the exception of...

    Another Conure?

    Hey, so my boyfriend and I have had a pyrrhura conure, Dino, for about 2 and a half weeks (maybe white eared, honestly not sure, you can see my other thread on that).

    Unique housing situation, can’t make a decision!

    Hey everyone! I joined the forum today to get advice as to which bird will be my next.. I had a cockatiel (Chi) until January 29, 2016 that was truly the love of my life. She was the cuddliest cockatiel I have ever known - we did everything together. It was heartbreaking when she passed away...

    Avoiding Jealousy?

    Hibou and Forrest get along very well for such different species! For the most part they are completely uninterested in each other, but they will sing together, eat together, and sometimes they'll try and preen each other, but I avoid super close contact to be on the safe side. Don't worry, they...
