    Bird doing weird thing with his tongue?

    I am very confused. My green cheek conure seems to be itching his tongue a lot (?). I've only noticed it since yesterday, and it looks very unusual, he sticks out his tongue and then uses the tip of his beak or sometimes the bars of his cage to scratch it. I've seen this behavior only once...

    Plucking/barbering or molting?

    Hey, I registered for this site cause I was wondering if my GCC is just having a rough molt or is barbering/plucking Here's an older video (September 2nd) of him picking at the area Here's a new video of him picking at the area. It's worse quality than the first vid but I took pictures...

    Hello, you can call me by my username and this is Echo my (Yellow-sided) Green Check Conure: I got him a few months ago, when he was 2-3 months old. He seems to have bonded with me well but I thought I should join a Forum just in case. I have done a lot of research on articles as well as many...

    How often does your bird stand on one foot?

    Hi all, I'm wondering this at the moment. It feels like my green-cheek spends most of his day on one foot lately. He alternates between them and uses them fine so I'm not concerned about a specific foot, but he does seem to be doing it quite often. I'm paranoid after his many vet visits these...

    4-month-old green cheeks starting to fight each other

    Hey guys, I adopted a pair of green cheek conures from a local breeder some 2 weeks ago. They are a boy (Mac) and a girl (Linux), both hatched mid April this year. They are from different parents. When they first came, they seem to get along really well. However, starting this week, I noticed...

I looked it up and saw a thread from yeaarrsss ago saying that it was bad, but I couldn't find any other info. Does anyone know about this? What hair dryer...

    Conure or parrotlet?

    I'm planning on getting a bird in the future and I think I'm going to get a conure but the parrotlet is in the back of my mind. I want a bird that is very social and silly, which spiecies is generally more social, I also wonder if it is a good idea to get a parrotlet when I have two budgies, I...

    Metacam/meloxicam dosage question

    Hi all, I'm sorry to bother, but my green-cheek conure was prescribed 0.05ml of meloxicam/metacam twice daily by the vet and I accidentally gave him 0.07 or 0.08..? I'm not entirely sure how much he swallowed. I had to give him twice because the first time he shook his head and threw it all...

    Urgent Conure injured by Severe Macaw

    Hi, My Penny (YSGC) was grabbed on her R side by my severe macaw, Q, when Penny invaded his space yesterday. I was in the bathroom and heard Penny shriek - and found her at the bottom of the macaw’s cage. Nothing even close to this has never happened in the over 30 yrs I’ve had parrots. Trust...

    Bird safe scents?

    I'm having a seriously hard time potty training my 5 month old puppy (if anyone has advice on that feel free to leave it lol) and he's having a lot of accidents on my carpet. Despite constantly scrubbing the carpet with vinegar and Nature's Miracle, my apartment has started to seriously stink...

    Introducing birds!

    I have a one and half year old GCC, Kiwi, and I got another one who I've named Goose not too long ago. We're not sure exactly how old he is but he's definitely younger than one. I introduced them to each other for the first time yesterday, and at first they were kinda just staring at each other...

    Mouth Gapping and Maybe Zoning Out?? Has anyone seen this before?

    Hi everyone. *NOTE: I have emailed my vet and waiting for a response* We were just training and having fun when my Conure, Claire, starting doing this weird action. It started about 5 seconds before I started recording. Her breathing still seemed fine during everything but I honestly thought...

    Conures fighting

    Hi, I have two conures and I had a question. So when either one conure takes a shower or both do, they start arguing and fighting when they are together. They tackle each other and have loud voices. I’ve searched a bunch but have not found anything. Is it something with their appearance? Smell...

    Urgent Apollo looks very sick.

    He is acting totally out of character. Usually he is quite noisy and loves to run around and yell at me but today he has been dead silent. He threw up twice and his poop is discoloured. It looks red/orange. I gave him carrots the other day but he might’ve gotten into some sweets of mine I had on...

    Conure losing weight

    Hi! I'm not quite sure if this is the right place to post this, so tell me if I'm doing it wrong lol! So 5 days ago, I brought home a pearly conure baby about 4 weeks old (breeder said he was "around" 3 weeks on the 11th, so I'm not sure exactly how many days old he is) to hand feed. (This is...
