    Cordon Bleu Not Flying

    I have a Cordon Bleu (F) in my aviary who has not been flying. She is possibly around 2 years old, she is a bird from my job as an aviary care technician. She doesn’t seem to have anything wrong with her wings, in terms of injury or defect. She swings most of the day and jumps around...

    My budgie can’t fly - what do I do?

    Hi there, I once owned a parrotlet and we were so, so close. I tamed her when she was about three months old and we did everything together. I now have gotten a budgie - I had done tons of budgie research in the past, but I will say I wasn’t expecting to get this budgie this day. I saw her out...
