    Multiple Conure help

    I have a GCC at home and I've been thinking about getting another GCC as a companion. Today I went into my local pet shop and saw 2 GCCs which appeared to be bonded because they were in "separate" cages but sitting next to each other. I say "separate" because there's only a glass divider...

    Suddenly doesn't like fresh food

    Mercury for the past week hasn't been the happiest eating fresh foods. I'm a little confused about it since he was eating well for so long, I stopped giving him fruit everyday (low sugary fruits) and now he barely touches his food. He'll eat pellets and forage for treats but refuses veggies and...

    Aggressive Abused Conure

    I have 9 birds in total, all rescues: 4 Budgies, 4 Conures and an African Grey. October, last year, I rescued 2 of my 4 Conures: A male and a female Greencheek, both 6 years old.
