    My GCC barely sleeps or gets tired and I'm worried its affecting her day.

    I always put my GCC to bed around 9-10 pm, although sometimes once every couple weeks i will go out to a long party/ get together etc. and she will be in her cage until 11-1 (rarely 1 but it has happened 2 or 3 times). She has a smaller travel cage that she sleeps in as well, and she normally...

    Marvin's 5th hatch day

    When asked what she wanted to do, she said, "view What's new on Avian Avenue", then after a few, to a toy she flew, with its bright new hue, she settled in, and began to chew. Marvin's got rhymes, who knew? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Conure Chattering?

    My Yellow-Sided Conure: Daenerys has always made this chattering sound since the day we rescued her. If I had to compare it to anything: It sounds like a quieter version of an angry Donald Duck. None of my other Conures make this sound, not even her cage-mate: Shades (Greencheek.) Is this...

    What's wrong with my conure?

    He's has been having issues with flying. He was born with two different shaped eyes/eyelids so I imagine there could be something wrong within his head. I'm 70% sure it's neurological but I could be wrong. He flies very slow and when he does, he makes slight noise as if he's injured or something...
