    Need help with step up

    Hi, I got a 3 month old pineapple green cheek conure a little over 2 weeks ago. The breeder said that he understood 70 pourcent of the time the command. He doesn't respond to me so I started from zero. I can now easily lure him on my hand. The problem is once he finishes the treat he will start...

    So I have a sun conure who likes to attack little children :/ He started doing this when my 10 year old brother started to mock him or annoy my sun conure. My conure did get annoyed and started flying on his face to bite him. My brother annoyed him even more so J told him to stop.he is not...

    Where Can I Buy Safe Bird Toys For My Conure

    No plastics please or artificial dyes. My bird loves those little balls that are destructible and paper strings. Also does anyone know any safe bells? She loves them but the ones I bought felt sharp and I wasn’t sure if there was any lead or dangerous chemicals. Hanging bells are ok but she...

    What is the Best Harness for a Conure

    I have a black-capped conure and have heard that this breed is smaller than other conures. He is about 9 weeks old now and is very desensitized to touch. He lets us touch his beak, under the wings, feet, and belly. We do know that petting too much in certain areas can cause hormonal issues but...

    Baby Bird’s Wings are Twitching

    He’s always been kind of like that but we noticed that today he has been extra twitchy and more vocal today. We are setting an appointment with an avian vet but what do you guys think of his behavior? Is he okay? I’ve been told that some birds make noises when they eat but he seems to make these...

    What are some essential tricks/training for a bird?

    We have been doing target training, step ups, and recall?( not sure if that’s the right word but just flying to our hands)What are some useful or essential things we should teach him?? Also when do you know when a bird has mastered a trick? When he no longer needs to see a treat? Also for...

    What Kind of Music Does Your Bird Like?

    Me and my s/o have a young conure and we want to introduce and dance in front of our bird Kiwipo but are unsure what kind of music birds like! Does your bird like music and what genre? I was singing “How deep is your love” and I noticed my bird staring and falling asleep. He’s now 8 weeks so he...

    How Much Oranges Can My Baby Conure Have?

    Today is Kiwipo’s fourth day home. We have been introducing to him a variety of foods. So far he only likes oranges in the fruit compartment. Oranges are acidic so how much should I give him? Right now he is eating 1 piece of a cutie orange and totally annihilated it. Is this too much for him...

    When Should I Start Introducing Pellets to my Baby Conure?

    He is roughly 5-6weeks old and we have had him for 3 days now. He is extremely tamed and is VERY food motivated. He just got done with liquid feedings and was fed seeds and soft grain/veggie mixture. When should I start introducing pellets? I was recommended and have bought a large bag of...

    Needy Bird Please Help

    Today is his second day home. At the store he was hand fed and handled and was not scared of us. Yesterday, he immediately started playing with his toys, ate his seeds( we r planning on feeding him pellets but r going to wait on that) and even tried some eggs, killer Dave bread, and lemon...

    What is this?

    He gets this patch of colored “beak” that looks like his beak previously flaked off and food got under it. It’s red when he eats strawberries and yellow when he eats his pellets. Is this bad? background info: 10 months old, male, hand fed, diet is Zupreem natural but I am switching him to Rowdybush.

    GCC Development Stages

    Poppy turned 1 last month and I feel like we are in a very annoying phase. She is biting a lot more than she used to (not always aggressively, but sometimes) and is much less interested in cuddling. She wants to wrestle constantly. When she's on shoulders, she often goes to bite ears or necks...

    Thinking about getting a friend for my conure

    Hello again guys!! I have a conure named Kirby if you didn't know and I'm thinking about adopting him a friend. He is really lonley whenever I leave and I wish I could be with him 24/7 but I can't :( I think he would be a lot happier with another bird to keep him company while I'm out of the...

    Conure and budgies

    Hello all, We will be building a large outdoor aviary soon and have been considering stocking arrangments (as some if you may already know)! I have just come across some conures, but I am not sure on exact species, but I was wondering if I could keep my budgies with them. The aviary will be...

    Are these stress bars?

    I had my little conure for about 3 months now and I started to notice his feathers are turning black in some areas. So I looked at pictures from when I first got him to now. I dont know if it's his diet or if he is stressed. I feed him pellets and fruits. He refuses to eat his veggies and sprouts.
