My parrot has no issues, shes normal but I'm not sure where the bump came from. Any ideas?? could it be like tumour or a skin...

    Bonded rescue conures

    I kind of inherited a pair of green cheeks after their owner (family friend) could not keep them anymore. They have been in the same cage together since the original owner got them (3-4 years) and are now bonded. I've been training them every day for a few months now, but when it comes to cage...

    Pictures Mac becomes an iPhone!

    Mac decided he would become a handheld bird today, no longer wasting energy on perching and fully portable XD After a really good head scratch session with my hand over him, he decided to let go and curl up in my palm for even more head scratches. I swear this bird is such a nut, but he’s my...

    gym ideas??

    I have a clothes rack that I'm not using, and I want to put it to good use for my birdies!! But I'm stuck on ideas of what exactly to do with it. It's the same as the one in the photo. I'm planning on wrapping vet tape around the top pole and hanging boings, swings, and a climbing net from the...

    2.5 month old GCC already hormonal?

    Hi everyone, so I was spending time with Mac this morning and he started head bobbing like birds tend to do before regurgitating. He didn’t actually spit up anything as far as I could tell, and stopped after a bit and requested head scratches. I know that regurgitation can be a sign of...

    Urgent Parrot Landed on Toothbrush, Dipped Wing in Toothpaste

    Something made my GCC decide it was a good idea to fly into the bathroom and, instead of landing anywhere else, land on my toothbrush that I was getting ready to use, complete with toothpaste. She managed to dip the edge of her wing and a section of her chest into the toothpaste. I’ve had her...

    Help me please desperate really desperate

    Hi everyone. I need some serious advice. It’s been about 5-6 months since I adopted my Green cheek conure from a pet store. Butter is about 7 months old. He‘s a very friendly bird to an extent. I’ve taught him a range of tricks that include using my hand and he’s been very receptive towards it...

    Mist/jade X violet Green Cheeks

    I am couple of years into my green cheek journey and now starting to focus on Turquoise violets and more recently jades. Was wondering if anyone has put the df violet and df jade mutations together and what the outcome was.

    Meet Opal

    Hi all, this is Opal my family’s GCC. We got her Christmas last year but I have only just joined this forum. We all adore her, she is the sweetest little mischievous cuddle pie . We’re all still learning and I’m hoping that I can learn lots as a member here, I would hate to do anything to hurt her.

    What paperwork should a bird have?

    Hi, I am getting a GCC on monday from a lady that says she breeds bird in a family environment. I was wondering what paperwork the bird is supposed to come with? Are leg bands, birth certificate important? Thanks

    Introducing birds!

    I have a one and half year old GCC, Kiwi, and I got another one who I've named Goose not too long ago. We're not sure exactly how old he is but he's definitely younger than one. I introduced them to each other for the first time yesterday, and at first they were kinda just staring at each other...

    dragon fruit making the messiest of messes

    i gave wem a piece of dragon fruit purée frozen because she loves frozen foods, (i think it’s the crunch element i have no idea) i go back in her room an hour later and am horrified because i thought she cut her face. i was crying running up to the cage and was greeted by this (don’t mind her...

    My GCC barely sleeps or gets tired and I'm worried its affecting her day.

    I always put my GCC to bed around 9-10 pm, although sometimes once every couple weeks i will go out to a long party/ get together etc. and she will be in her cage until 11-1 (rarely 1 but it has happened 2 or 3 times). She has a smaller travel cage that she sleeps in as well, and she normally...

    black poop!!!!

    This morning my conure pooped on me and it looked fine, a little watery if anything, but fine. Later in the day, I went to clean one of her lower perches off bc they always get pooped on, and I noticed that there was black or very dark poop on it. Some of it was new some was crusty. Should I be...

    crop adjustment? regurgitation? illness???

    my gcc (not sure of sex) was doing something weird today. she was furiously bobbing her head up and down with her mouth open and after awhile she spit out what i believe to be pieces of an almond she had eaten earlier. at first i thought this was probably her adjusting her crop of trying to get...

    Will he hate me forever?

    Hi everyone, sorry this feels like a repeat question... I have two green cheeks, one just doesn't like anyone. He was about a year old when I got him (his previous owner couldn't keep him anymore) he was advertised as 'tame', which seems like a big lie. The person I bought him from said you...

    Help me prepare for puberty?

    Hi Avian Family! Duck is officially 7 months old as of today. She is lovable and snuggly, and an overall sweetheart. I know that puberty will hit at some point, and I’m prepared for a change of behavior (teenagers, am I right?). I’m hoping to get some insight to help me prepare for what I’m in...
