    Concerned about my birds poop

    Is this a normal dropping? We rescued a goffins cockatoo 6 months ago. We got her switched to a pellet and chop diet, this is her second poop that’s more white and runny like this. Should I be worried?

    I need someone to punch me in the face

    For real. I know, I KNOW, that bringing a cockatoo into the house is stupid. I know that. I have an African grey and a cockatiel already, which is more than enough dust. I absolutely do NOT need to bring home a Goffin's. Someone else can give him a home. It doesn't have to be me. I don't have...

    One peculiar parrot

    Hello! I've recently adopted a Goffins named Kiwi from a local animalr rescuer. We know nothing about her age or what sort of life she lived before finding us.

    Birds, College and foster homes

    Hi! I am a high school senior, and although I am taking a gap year, I am trying to think ahead as much as possible. I have 3 birds: a gcc, a bebe parrot, and a goffins cockatoo. Luckily, my G2 is just as (or more) bonded to my father, so leaving her is no problem. I'll miss her like crazy, but...

    Breaking Tail Feathers?

    Recently, I adopted a little Goffins too, it was a big deal and she has been just a joy. Frankie is a very, very hard player, she runs around flapping, hopping up and down. Constantly rolling on her back. She has also been breaking a lot of tail feathers, her tail is getting thinner, and after...

    King Solomon Cages?

    I'm wondering if anyone here has purchased a cage from King Solomon Cages. I'd like to get a cage from them, specifically, the King David. Here is a link: King Solomon Cages - The last bird cage you'll ever buy. I would like to purchase this cage for a G2. The cage seems very nice, but, I have...
