    Flight Feathers

    I am new to having a young tiel. My previous experience was with one that showed up on our doorstep and adopted us. My new baby is somewhere in the 4 to 5 month old range and came from the store with his wings clipped. Not that unusual, I know. I plan to let him have them grow back and be...

    Will my girl ever be able to fly?

    Hello everyone! You might have seen me posting mostly about my IRN Zazu, cause we’ve been struggling with his health ever since I got him. Now I’d like to share the main struggle with my female yellow cockatiel -Walad. My father-in-law keeps many small parrots and hand-raised Walad (she’s now...

    Some Slo-mo Zephyr Flying

    Ever since he molted out his clipped baby feathers and grew in his brand new flight feathers he’s been flying around like crazy. I’ll often see him zooming from one side of the house to the other or from perch to perch. Always amazes me how well he can maneuver indoors. His new favorite sleeping...

    Video Kiwi Flies In Slow-Mo

    Yesterday I tookm a slow-mo video of Kiwi flying (It took a long time for Kiwi to decide to help with the video) Yes, Kiwi's wings are clipped (We're going to let them grow back out again)

    Need help with flight training!

    I got Charlie at a breeder, and I thought they let him fledge before clipping his wings. Well, I was wrong... He is going trough his first molt right now and his wing feathers almost completely grew back in already! He flies super well and even fast, but there is one single yet important...

    Urgent Broken or Injured Wing?!?

    I have a green cheek conure and shes a sweetheart and she is very bonded to me even though I have only had her for 10 days. She is clipped, but she still manages to always fly very well and always flies onto me. One day, I noticed she isnt as active, or flighty and is more fluffed up throughout...

    Update; Adélies made progress!

    2 weeks after his siblings took their first flight, Adélie has took the leap of faith just now ❤️ He has climbed all up the back of my neck on to my head, I said to my boyfriend, Adélie has found a new spot, and took a picture... And then he jumped and flew to the shelf in front... He didn't...

    Cockatiel Crashing?

    My cockatiel, Pepper, is fully flighted, but he is easily startled and every time he becomes startled, he jumps up and flies into the nearest wall. I am very concerned that he will get hurt or die from an injury to the head. What should I do? Is clipping him the best option?

    Growing up and growing wings

    My baby starling (they are legal to keep as pets) has, in the past 4 days, gained the ability of flight (he's about 3 to 4 weeks old). He has started getting into really high places where I'd prefer him not be such as on top of ceiling fans and on cabinets. He is the sweetest little thing and...

    Pictures Why does this keep happening?????

    So my bird has just gotten over his first molt. Stressful, hormonal and cranky. But in the end we made it thru ok. He looks great and it gave him a chance ( us a chance ) to experience what flight feathers bring to the table. Since December he has lost three of his new feathers, making him very...

    Birds are so much more complex than I could have ever imagined. They are so varied in their behavior that I feel like every week I am reintroducing myself to them... Charlie and Emma are at it again. A completely new pair of birds. Ever since the nest has been removed and the aggression has...

    Safe flight training

    Joey's flight feathers will be growing out but it is slow. First time flight training so I need training myself. When do you advise I start training him? I have been reading previous posts on making the environment flight safe. Thank you!

    He flies!

    My RB2 was clipped when I got him, and in past month he began getting his flight feathers in. Today, around a hour ago he flew for the first time! It was from the ground to my shoulder... Which isn't the greatest considering we have a no shoulder rule but regardless I'm very excited that he's...

    Travel by Plane: Tips?

    In less than 2 weeks my husband and I will be traveling with our parrotlet Xyla. We looked into airlines and made sure to find one that allows her to travel in the cabin with us but it's still 10 hours and 4 planes to our destination. I was wondering if any of you have flown with your birds...
