    Hey so I have a baby conure who is about 6 weeks old and it won’t stop doing those little chirps (like when it wants food) even after its crop is full.

    HELP (Update): bleu (my older budgie I’ve had for a year now) is obsessed with the new young bird I bought. They are both males although I’m not sure the young one is 100% a male.

    Stopped Singing/whistling

    My Cockatiel, Sunny, has stopped singing/whistling. He acts like he is completely fine; he eats, drinks, stool is normal, chirps, and interacts with me. The only thing he stopped was singing/whistling. I don’t think he is going through a molting period either. Does anyone know what is going on...
