My amazing little conure passed away very suddenly on Sunday and I have so many unanswered questions that I’m hoping someone here might be able to answer for me. about 2 days before he passed, he wasn’t himself, he was very quiet (which was unusual for him!) he...

    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...

    Blue sun conures?

    How are these mutations even possible? How rare are they?

    Urgent Conure has strokes every couple of weeks, vet says he is healthy

    Hello everyone, My sun conure has strokes every couple of weeks. I think it has happened 5 times now. It always seems to happen during the night, because me and my wife have never seen it happen. We hear him fall and when we go to him, he is at the bottom of his cage not moving much and his...

    My little baby girl and best friend has passed, I need advice on how to help my other baby through it.

    I honestly thought I would never be posting this/ asking about this soon. I lost my 12-year-old baby girl on the 7th and I'm super distraught. I had gotten sick at the beginning of February and sadly wasn't able to take care of my babies for three days. My mom was looking after them (she knows...

    How do you tell when your bird is starting to molt?

    Just wondering since I've never actually experienced it before, haha. But Aro had a huge grumpy day yesterday where I couldn't even go near "his" side of the room without him getting all grouchy about it, and he lost a tail feather today, I don't think this is any form of sign for it, he was...

    Conure behaviour out of control. HELP!

    Hey guys, so recently my conure has had the worst behaviour he has ever had. I think it started about two weeks ago, but it could have been sooner. He's about 2 1/2 years old, suspected male. Out of the blue, he started eating everything. He's never done this before. He's eaten 3 cords, a...

    Conure love/hates my boyfriend!

    Pasting this from backyardchickens… Hello everyone! Wanted to see if any of you have any tips for my wacky bird, who is OBSESSED with my boyfriend... for good and bad! A little background on Beepers, the green cheek conure: he's a three year old (estimated age and gender) rescue. I am his...

    Urgent HELP! My Green Cheek Conure swallowed my gf nose stud!

    My 8month old conure swallowed my gf nose ring. We took him out of his cage to play and while hanging out on her chest he snatched her nose stud out. It’s a 7 millimeter’s tiny nose stud stainless steel. We plan on taking it to the vet in the morning but we are very concerned. We were on the bed...

    Parrot hut ideas

    Hi all! My GCC has had a happy hut for 9 years now. It's canvas on the outside and some fluff on the inside. I've trimmed off most of the fluff a long time ago and he only uses it for sleeping and doesn't chew on it, however, I still prefer to consider alternate solutions occasionally because I...

    Conure hates her new cage

    I need a little advice here. On Christmas we got our GCC a new, hilariously large, flight cage and she hates it! We loaded it with treats and food and brand new toys, but she doesn't want to be anywhere near it unless we're in the room. We tried putting her in it and leaving the room, but she...

    UK based pellet brands?

    Okay, so,,I'm looking for a bit of advice here. I know that all birds have different preferences in pellets and there's no "one size fits all" situation with them, but I'm wanting to do my best for Aro's health. I was advised to use tops with him as it's the best for birds apparently, but, since...

    GCC Napping a lot but no other signs of illness?

    So I wanted to come here and get everyone else's opinions. I've had a few birds, but none have lasted long due to unfortunate reasons, so I'm still very new and over cautious. My Green Cheeked Conure shows no other signs of illness, he plays occasionally, eats just fine, drinks just fine but he...

    Something I just realised,, (Trans talk wif b0rd)

    I know that I just got back, but there has been something on the back of my mind since day one of Aro coming home.. When I start transitioning (FtM), I will probably change quite a bit physically, and I didn't consider before how that might effect him. I know that the changes will be subtle and...

    genuinely questioning if I can do this

    The loudness is..really getting to me I feel really bad saying it, because again I signed up for this, and I keep telling myself I don't mind it, it's just noise, but I don't know if a conure is the right bird for me, I feel like I heavily underestimated how loud they are and at this point I...

    A long thread of needed advice to save on multiple threads

    Going off advice I was given when I was freaking out on my first post, I've been doing my best to simply let Aro relax and get used to everything, no pressure to learn anything new or do anything he doesn't want to do, the only "new" thing we're trying is gradually moving onto pellets...

    One of those days

    Anyone else have days where their Conure just..Decides it's time to be noisy all the time with no breaks? I swear, every 2-3 days Aro just decides " I think I will scream all day today:)" and I can't figure out if it's normal or he's just once again being his weird little self xD Its 4pm and...
