    Conure is sick and won't improve

    I've had my boy Salem for a couple years now, after having him for around 4 months he suddenly became quite ill, vomiting and having extremely liquidy poops. We brought him to the vet and ended up figuring that he may have gotten into his old cage which had some pretty old dirty water and that...

    Yesterday I was trimming my conures wings which our vet recommended us doing. As I was doing so his foot got in the way and it cut above his nail. I was immediately panicking and called my vet while using some baby powder which was the only thing I had on hand to stop the bleeding. He didn’t...

    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.

    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...

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...

    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?
