    Last night I read a post on here which gave me the confidence to come out and type all of this, so I'd like to preface my questions with a bit of an explanation. I've been struggling with severe anxiety for a few years now, but I haven't shared this with anyone other than my boyfriend. It...

    My GCC doesn't fly

    I got my GCC about a month ago, and he rarely flies- only when he's spooked. He won't willingly fly anywhere- I've tried luring him with treats, and I can tell he really wants to fly but he just won't. He isn't clipped and doesn't have any history of injuries. I really want him to be able to fly...

    Air purifier

    I'm planning on buying an air purifier and was wondering if there's anything I need to look out for, or if any one will do. I see a lot of things about ions and honestly I have no idea what any of it means.

    Kittens and Birds

    Does anyone has experience with training young kittens around their birds? I recently found a very young kitten, I'm thinking around 8 weeks old.

    Overgrown Nails

    My GCC's nails are pretty overgrown. I've noticed when she walks (especially on flat surfaces) she's pretty much walking on her nails. I haven't been able to find a groomer/vet in the area that's willing to clip her nails (her regular vet is 2 hours away), and clipping her nails at home is a...

    How safe is it to share little niblets from my dinner with my green cheek conure? I don't ever do this because I'm very cautious when it comes to my pets, but I've caught my boyfriend on numerous occassions sneaking her little bites of his food. He knows what she absolutely CANNOT (alcohol...

    Xavier’s eye

    Xavier is a two year old pearly green cheek conure. So I got Xav out of his cage this morning and he has a big pink mark on the skin around his eye. He’s a little nippy so I had to zoom to get the pic while he was eating. I’m hoping it’s just that he scratched it. This is his first injury ever...

    Can GC conures and budgies get along

    First off I'm not sure if this is the forum to post this on, but I was scrolling through Craigslist and came across a green cheek conure that was recently posted. Didn't expect to, but I kinda really want it now. Though I doubt I'll actually be able to get it depending on how my parents feel...

    Green Cheek conure odd behavior

    So my green cheek conure is doing a new, weird behavior. She's around 4 years old. She has a furry tent in her cage that she sleeps in but recently at random times of the afternoon she goes in the tent and is kind of laying or in a weird position making a constant weird noise. The noise is tough...
