    Sleep structure???

    Hey there community, I’m debating purchasing some kind of sleep structure for my new Quaker baby as a bit of extra comfort. But I don’t know if Puk is a male or female and I’m worried that a happy tent or something similar could trigger nesting behaviour and potentially egg laying. I’ve had a...

    Is my conure making my budgie hormonal?

    Hi everyone, my female budgie (Ocean) and my female pineapple conure (Zendaya) are extremely close. So close that I believe that Zendaya is making Ocean hormonal. Ocean constantly lays eggs but immediately abandons them and will go right back to feeding Zendaya. I’m just trying to figure out if...

    Urgent Egg emergency?

    I’m not very familiar with this platform so please forgive me if I do anything wrong! I’ve never had a female bird before so this is new to me. Lulu is a 5 year old parrotlet, and I’ve had her for about 2 years now. She’s laid eggs in the past, about 3, but this is her first time getting ready...

    Cockatiel eggs help!

    So my 8 year old Lutino cockatiel laid eggs for the first time in years. I’m worried she might be caring for the egg too much. I have a camera set up to monitor her. For the past 2 days she hasn’t been eating or drinking. My 2 year old male cockatiel isn’t helping her either. Today I forced her...

    Urgent Budgie possibly getting ready to lay eggs?

    My budgie has as of recently (past day or two) been showing signs that could possibly be her wanting to lay eggs, or her being sick. She’s been sitting in one place more and sleeping a lot, though she’s happily preening as normal. She hasn’t been eating as much even though she usually has a good...

    Urgent Egg bound or tumor???

    Hi everyone! My 9 year old female parrotlet has inflated abdomen. I noticed it earlier today when I head a “thump” and went over to her cage to check on her. When I picked her up her abdomen was soft, but swollen. She’s been egg bound before when she was around 4 or 5 and I used humidity...

    Hey budgie owners! I hope you and your birds are doing well! I have 1 female and 1 male budgie. I was never planning on breeding the two (in fact, I thought my female was a male until I caught them doing the deed ). My female has laid many eggs in the past few months, but a LOT of them fell down...

    Hi everyone! I'm sure I'm just being a hyper-paranoid bird mom right now, but my 2 year old female cockatiel keeps doing a little mating call/dance and I am terrified that it means she is going to lay soon. I took her to the vet last time that she did this and she didn't have any eggs at the...
