    Pictures Canary with stool stuck

    As the title suggests, I've had 2 canaries (M/F) who's been in my care for a year. Sadly one of them passed some time ago (M) and as a result of this I've been even more paranoid and cautious with my other canary (F). I've noticed that her stool has gotten stuck around her anus and some of the...

    HELP! I need to switch my cockatiel to another pellet.

    My cockatiel's about a year old. She just laid 3 eggs, I believe she will lay more. (She has no mate, there is no dark places for her to be stimulated) I have seen her mating with a toy, and i thought it was just her hormones (She usually does that when she has her hormones). But when it was a...

    I have a 3 and a half old budgie now, and I noticed she's breathing faster than normal. But she acts normal and shows no signs of being ill. Is this normal?
