    Cockatiel being a bit weird about perching

    I'm completely brand new to this form (I've been lurking for a bit but I'm yet to make an intro post- I'll get round to it), so I'm not fully sure if this is better suited to go in Health or Toys & Cages, let me know if it should be moved! Onto the actual issue- my cockatiel is being a bit...

    Adoption Health Concerns

    I have good news and "bad" news! The good news: I'm adopting a lovebird on Friday. I wasn't looking for another bird so soon, but it's happening and I couldn't be happier. The bad news: He has a problem with his feet. This seems like a similar case: Pictures - Do I have a foot problem? @Zara. I...

    Dowel on Playstands

    Do your feathered babies have any foot issues with the wooden dowels that the play stands come with? If you replace them, what do you replace them with? Thanks so much!

    Injured foot?

    Rain is a 3-4 year old conure. Today I just realized that he has small reddish dots on the top of his foot as well as the bottom of them. He is not wanting to put pressure on the foot and looks to be struggling to climb with it as well. He seems fine when I touch the foot itself, but when I...

    Quaker Itchy Foot

    Hello everyone! I recently got a little Quaker called Bobbi who is currently about 21 weeks old. He’s a very active bird, constantly chirping away and moving around his cage. Unfortunately, when we first got him, he had mites, lice or something similar and was constantly scratching and getting...

    pink spot on bottom of her foot

    As I put Louise to bed, she was clinging to the side of the cage. Her feet are stained from tonight's blackberries but there was a spot on the bottom of her foot that was pink. Not a normal color on her feet and not part of the berry stains. I toweled her (first time I have done that) and...

    Reoccurring Limp in my Green Cheek Conure

    Hello! Our green cheek has had a reoccurring limp. This is the 4th time in about 16 months. The first time it lasted 7 days and was the result of flying into something 6 ft away after a seagull scared her in the window. The 2nd and 3rd time it only lasted a few days, and this time we are going...
