    New bird

    Hello all. I have a crimson bellied conure (Poppy) and a jenday conure (Amber). I was thinking of getting another bird but not quite sure which one. I am leaning towards a sun conure as I think a sun conure will be a good flock mate with my jenday. Any other suggestions that might get along with...

    Preen, preen, preen

    Sunflower was preening today when she pulled out a tail feather (she's molting). This didn't stop her though. She continued to preen the feather for a while until she dropped it. I guess it was easier to preen it that way.

    Rehome Black Capped Conure in Ohio

    It breaks our family's heart, but we think it's best we rehome our male Black Capped Conure. He was hatched May 2016 and we got him from a parrot store. He is very healthy and happy. I want to include his cage and his toys that he loves and would like a small rehome fee to make sure he goes...

    Thoughts on Avicalm?

    My GCC has been really cranky lately and I can't figure out why. I'm used to his little occasional nips but lately he has been actively trying to bite me and this is a bird who used to love scratches and interaction. He's only about 11 months old and I've had him about 4 months. I know they tend...

    We are shopping for a new house and some of them have fireplaces. Is it safe to have a fire with a bird? The smoke would go up the chimney and the fire would be blocked by the gate. I just wanted to make sure before we started a fire.

    New house

    We are moving from a one bedroon apartment into a two or three bedroom home hopefully by Christmas. We have an eight month old GCC named Sunflower. I was hoping for some tips about moving with a bird. Anything we should do or look out for?

    Sunflower got some yogurt on her head. She is also molting. One of her head feathers got stuck, resulting in this adorableness:
