    Urgent Aspiration/choking baby cockatiel

    I’m not sure but I think my baby tiel was aspirating. I couldn’t make it to the vet in time before he passed. He was 15 days old and still in the nest box with the parents. Im worried the parents are too young (2 years and 3 years old). Should I pull the rest of the clutch and start hand...

    Hi everyone. *NOTE: I have emailed my vet and waiting for a response* We were just training and having fun when my Conure, Claire, starting doing this weird action. It started about 5 seconds before I started recording. Her breathing still seemed fine during everything but I honestly thought...

    Requesting some advice

    hi guys, I have a 4-5 month old tiel that... well, I don’t think he has a medical problem, he just seems to suffer from being somewhat stupid. I originally had him on Zupreem pellets but he had some weird looking poos so I switched him to Harrison’s high potency fine. Now, he loves them. I...

    Urgent What Should You Do If Your Bird is Choking?

I was in the car, taking him home from the vet and I decided to give him a small bit of French fry since he had a stressful day. We went over a bump when he was trying to swallow and he ended up choking on it. I panicked and...
