    Video HELP!! Is This Chick Shivering?

    I'm being told that my chick is shivering, but the gauge says it's at a good temperature, the chick is not wet/moist, and it's in a small closet so there shouldn't be a draft... What's this shaky movement about?

    I managed to hatch a Green-Cheeked Conures chick that was abandoned by the mother. I've been doing a lot of research about baby care since the mom laid her eggs, but I wasn't all that prepared to raise it myself (w/ no help from mother bird), so I'm hoping to get tips about raising it. It...

    I need help choosing a new conure (crimson bellied conure owner's give me your advice)

    Last year I was going to get a new bird but because of some personal issue, I had to give up the crimson I was just about to buy.

    Conure thin, but otherwise healthy

    Hi there! I’ve got a 6 year old green cheek named clover, and I’ve found that his keel bone is especially prominent. His activity, diet, etc have all been good, as I always see him eating and playing and chatting. I recently took him to the vet and they did a physical- he seems perfectly healthy...

    I have a two-year-old green cheek and a mouse has taken up residence in our house. I have tried three different traps and several different baits and have yet to catch this mouse. I've come across several posts that lemon essential oil is a good repellant. It suggests mixing a few drops in...

    4 1/2 month old Conure molting?

    Hi all, my almost 5 month GCC appears to be molting. I am concerned because it seems so young. He’s been losing a fair amount of the fluffy down feathers for no apparent reason (no plucking, and even when he’s not grooming). Behavior wise he doesn’t seem out of the ordinary- sleeping as usual...

    I just recently took in a young conure (born in January 2023). I am not sure of his color as I am sure it’s more dull than its supposed to be with the evidence of black barring. It is super friendly but a little skittish. I have gotten him to step up onto my fingers with using safflower seeds...
