    Does his nostril look concerning?

    Hi everyone! Today I noticed my bird’s left nostril looking a little different. He’s been acting completely normal with no discharge around his nares or watery poops, so I was wondering if it looks like a cause for concern? The vet stresses him out a LOT but I’ll definitely be booking a...

    Air freshener question

    I've had my green cheek conure for about a year and I haven't tried using air fresheners/fragrances in his room until now. I got a Febreze Light Lavender plugin with no heavy perfumes, but I read online that they still aren't safe around birds, despite them not having aerosol. I currently have...

    Unsure if this is a normal beak appearance...

    Hey all, So Chewy paid a visit to the vet last month and all seemed well. I had them file his beak because there was a bit of a top layer that had developed on it. I know that flakey beaks are normal during moulting, however to vet said to keep an eye on it because overgrowth can be related to...

    Urgent Budgie's cere peeling off?

    My budgie flew into the window repeatedly. His cere seems to be peeling off? A white layer had separated from it. He seems fine, like nothing out of the ordinary happened. What should I do? There are no avian vets in the area, so I'm hoping it's not that serious.

    I’ve had my bird for 4 years now and she never has laid eggs

    I got my cockatiel in 2017. I’ve had her 3 years, starting to turn into 4 years in a few months. I’m not too well informed about female cockatiel breeding knowledge since I’ve never experienced any of that kind of behaviour from my bird. I just thought that I didn’t need it. I noticed since the...
