    Homemade Seed Mixes

    Hello! I have a few questions about homemade seed mix. Should millet be the first ingredient? Is hemp seed a good addition? Also, if anyone has a recipe for homemade seed mix that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. :)

    Back Again (:

    My lil dude has been doing quite well! Step up training went great. He is going through his nippy stage currently but don't they all haha. Anyway, the only naughty thing is he will not stop shaking his water dish!! He doesnt do it to the food ones. He grabs onto the side of the water...

    Good food companies for fids

    what high quality food companies should I be looking for my Quaker? He had Mayans but throws about half of it away. Stores have dyed food. I'd rather not get that. Can you guys point me in the right area?

    New Bird, New Species - need some advice please!

    Hey guys... Ok, so I am about ready to bring Oliver home (a brand new baby Timneh African Grey), and although they may seem stupid, I have some quick general questions.

    What does everyone feed their Lovebirds? I'm seeing that most bags of seeds also have other birds on them, can Lovebirds have a range of foods? Just for future reference I don't want to give them a food that's not okay for them if there isn't a lovebird pictured/labeled. I will eventually...

    Linnie won't drink from bowl?

    my 10 week old Linnie, which I have already introduced in another thread, doesn't seem to drink from his/her bowl. He eats the seeds he has in one bowl but I haven't seen him drink from the water bowl. I've misted him and after I do that, he starts to lick the water off of his perches. Should I...

    Appropriate Fruit, Vegetable, Protein and Grain Serving Sizes?

    Hi all! I just brought home my first conure yesterday and he (I don't know the sex, obviously, but I call him he!) is already such a joy! His name is Terry P and he's a 5 month old golden capped conure. I have read that fruits, veggies, legumes and whole grains are very important parts of a...
