    I live in an apartment complex. I haven't lived here very long and when getting my conure, I was unaware that the apartment did routine pest control sprays every three months. People are trying to tell me it won't be that big of a deal because they spray just around the kitchen and bathrooms...

    Urgent Sick & Wet-Looking Parakeet. Super worried, how do I proceed?

    This started yesterday. My bird was just sitting around in her cage in the morning pretty quietly and fluffed up. She looked fine. Even during the day yesterday, she looked fine.

    sick cockatiel

    Hello. I have a 10 year old cockatiel. He's been sick for (kind of) a month now. The thing is, I'm not sure if he's even sick anymore or that he's just changed his behaviour.
