    Is PLA bird safe?

    Ive been in the habit of making toys since toys don’t last 4 days in Romeo’s cage. He loves cups/bowls with lids so he can forage for the goodies inside. I saw these on Amazon:https://a.co/d/chNQ7fU And I saw that the inside is coated with PLA. I just wanted to know if this would be generally...

    Video odd bird behavior?

    Hi! So my bird does this every so often and it’s usually followed by regurgitation and stops when I pet his head. I was just wondering if anybody else’s bird does this.

    Outstretched wings?

    My 6 year old CAG was let onto the couch to spend time with us out of his cage. He began chirping and outstretching his wings when we all sat down. Is this mating behavior? I’m not worried, because he looks extremely lively and happy.

    PCV pipe size?

    I just bought pvc pipe in 1 1/2 inch diameter for an African Grey. It’s only going to be used in a diy play gym. Is that too big or should I stop second guessing myself lol.

    African grey accidentally ate his own feces?

    Hi, I know it’s probably not anything to worry about but im just making sure. My 4 year old African grey accidentally stepped in his own poo while out of his cage. He does not let me clean his feet, so I gave him water to rinse off in. While I was getting the water, I saw him clean a piece of...

    Cardboard tubes?

    Hello! Does anyone have an idea where I can get bird safe cardboard/paper tubes? I just found out my African Grey loves them when I put one (glue free of course) in his cage. I’ve tried looking but I just want one that’s bird safe please! Thank you :•)

    Yaheetech bird cage grate replacement

    I posted a thread yesterday and I was recommended to contact Yaheetech about their replacement parts. Sadly, they haven’t answered my calls or emails. I’m looking for a replacement grate for my cage as my CAG finds it amusing to bite it. It would be amazing if it was stainless steel since he...

    Bird droppings changes after diet change?

    Hi! So this morning when I was changing his cage liner, I saw that my CAG’s stools were light brown in color? I feed Lafebers Premium diet pellets, Avian Naturals Allergy Mix, and mixed frozen vegetables. Recently I added Bodacious Birdie ‘Sneaky Sprinkles’ which contains organic lacinto kale...

    Pictures Frozen vegetables? Yes please!

    So Romeo has always been very particular with the veggies he eats. One day I saw a thread on here saying that their parrot prefers frozen so I tried it on romeo and lo and behold all of his picky-ness has suddenly disappeared! As a slightly new bird momma, all of you on this website have helped...

    I was taking pictures of my baby and I realized, I’ve never seen the back of his tongue! Weird question, but is this normal?? New things with my birds always make me nervous. :scared2:

    Nuts.com? Anuts.com??

    I am trying to find the best place to find human grade nuts for my CAG. I’m mainly looking for walnuts, hazelnuts, and almonds. I found nuts.com and Anuts.com; I also think I found someplace called nuts wholesale (if someone could give me the correct name please :lol:) but if anyone could tell...

    Bird digging?

    My baby Romeo is around 2 and whenever I take him out of his cage he buries his beak in my hand and digs away like a cat/dog. He also regurgitates sometimes? Has any one else had this happen? Thanks a bunch :cag:

    Found my home at last!

    Hi All -- Glad to be apart of this community. I recently lost my Congo Grey after having been through most of my life with her. The past 26 years were a joy to have with Cookie. I guess I'm looking for a place to both share my experiences of birdie companionship, as well as grieve over her...

    new bird

    i'm a new big-bird owner, having only cockatiels and budgies in the past. I recently got a baby female CAG. I'm starting to get worried by how much she is ''cleaning'' herself and dislikes me, even though i've been patient, offered treats, and tried to bond with her. I don't know what i'm doing...

    Cuttlebone? Mineral Blocks?

    Hi! I’ve been wanting to introduce some vitamins into my CAG and GCC’s diet, Romeo (CAG) gets fresh veggies, occasional fruit, some safflower seed mix (no peanuts or sunflower) and Lefeber pellets and ZuPreem natural pellets. And my extremely picky girl Tokyo gets her safflower seed mix (no...
