    Urgent Are these seizures?

    Hello, I have been raising some baby pineapple conures and one has been acting erratic. I have raised up hundreds of babies and none of them acted this way. Got a vet checkup and nothing is wrong with him/her, healthwise. I got two baby conures to raise up for someone. They are now at weaning...

    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...

    Strange Behavior?

    Not sure if I am overthinking this, but my Rico boy kinda changed since I got him. I got him right before Christmas on Dec 17, and he got used to me, and used to hang around me. He used to fly to where I was and sit on my knees/chest/stomach. He's not a hand bird just yet (we are working on...

    IRN territory training (sad update #4)

    Hi! I have a 10mo old F Indian/African Ringneck hybrid and a couple of months ago we added a green cheek (M 3mo old) to keep her company while my partner and I are at work. After quarantining them, we brought their cages into the same room. They are practically the same model cage, so look quite...

    Sudden aggression/biting.

    So, I've had my male green-cheeked conure Jock, for a little over 2 years now. At first, he wanted nothing to do with me, but with constant exposure, he's warmed up to me the past couple months. For awhile he'd play with me, preen, dance, take food from my hands, and sit on my shoulder. He has a...

    Sneezing Conure.

    So my Pineapple Greencheek just sneezed in my face and it felt wet. She sneezed three, more times after that. Is this normal? Would I be overreacting if I took her and her cagemate to the vet over this? I am really worried but at the same time uncertain. If this isn’t cause for concern just yet...

    Conures are confusing me, please help :')

    I'll try to explain as briefly as I can, On Friday, 3 days ago, I lifted my bird cage cover to find that 1) An egg was on the bottom of the cage, and 2) we didn't have two males. I was shocked, ecstatic, and anxious. I had wanted two males to avoid this issue as I knew the health complications...

    Beak Trim?

    I’ve had my conure (Kiwi)’s beak and nails trimmed about monthly at his vet’s office since getting him in February. He will be 2 in March. Lately I’ve seen people are against it and I was wondering if I should be doing this? I have bought countless cuttlebones in different shapes, sizes, etc and...

    Hi all, I have a 6 month male GCC who I have had for 4 months now and love dearly. We have an AMAZING bond and spend a ton of time together. He goes almost everywhere with me (including work). We have considered getting another bird as my husband would like a bird to work with and bond with...
