    Seeking Advice on a Companion for My Pearly Conure Abu

    I'm looking for some advice and opinions on what bird companion I should get for my three-year-old female pearly conure, Abu. I'm moving out soon and have decided to dedicate a whole room for my feathered friends, complete with perches, toys, and two large flight cages. Abu will have her own...

    Need advice

    My green cheeked conure will not eat her pellets. I don't know what to do she takes a minute per pellet and doesn't even always chew them. I don't even think she's able to successfully eat them. She can crush a few of them or she drops it and tries a different pellet. I thought the pellets may...

    Conure molting?

    Hi I’m concerned on whether my green cheek is molting or not. He just turned 1 year old recently and lately I’ve been noticing his chest feathers going away and on the floor. I don’t know the difference between if he’s plucking or if he’s just molting and would like some sort of clarification...

    Trimming my conure's beak?

    Hi all! First time post. So I have a conure, Jack, who broke about 50% of his top beak and as such we take him to his vet monthly for bottom beak trims. For some time I've been thinking about doing the trims myself and recently have really wanted to do that more. Primarily this is because every...

    Hi everyone! I’m wondering about molting- Tulsi turned a year old Dec. 20th. When we got her in September, she had tons of pin feathers and was losing a lot of those light gray, soft fluffy fetchers but that’s all subsided; until now. Shes starting to lose those soft, fluffy under feathers (?idk...

Now that that personal issue have cleared up and I have most of the stuff needed for the conure (cage, toys, bowls), I started looking for some hand reared conures...

    Urgent Parrot toe injured

    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...

    Did my Conure regurgitate or throw up?

    I am having a hard time telling but I am concerned. My brown-throat Conure bobbed her head a few times before spitting up a clear fluid. Is she okay? What does this mean? The vet was unhelpful, offered no advice and has us on a waitlist.

    Sun Conure behaviour is getting out of hand

    I have had my sun conure just shy of two years. She turned 2 at the end of June or this year. I used to bring her to work with me at a pet store all the time and she LOVED it. The store I’m at is warehouse-like with a few isles that she would free fly up and down. This also was GREAT for my...

    Hi I'm Sasikumar. I'm a new pineapple conure owner and he is around 5 weeks old and on handfeeding. I have a previous experience of owning budgies. My conure (Coco) was initially a bit noisy. Whenever I used to get him out to hand feed, he will be very noisy. Yesterday while he was trying to get...

    What’s it like for a conure to be rehomed?

    My question is for those who have adopted adult conures from happy homes: what is rehoming like for them? Do they grieve terribly for their previous owners? Or are they more ‘happy go lucky’? Am I applying human emotions onto this situation? *this is my first post, I hope I’ve done it right* I...
