    Are these mites on the canary?

    Hi, This canary flew to us asking for help, looks like it was really tired and needed a safe place to rest. Now, we have budgies and we're definitely keeping them away from the canary as we're trying to help her. We just noticed something around her eyes, are these mites? If so we're going to...

    Urgent Injured wing!

    My Indian ringneck parrot has an injured wing! I was so scared when I saw it, I searched it up (which I knew I shouldn’t have done because it makes me panic even more seeing the results) and it came up with info about tumours and stuff like that. That made me break down crying, I’m really...

    Cockatiel Droppings?

    Hey! So I just got this male cockatiel yesterday. He is about 4-5 years old. I was curious, just to get some other people's opinions, do his droppings look normal to everyone? He did just come from a 2 and a half hour drive yesterday. Thanks!

    How to teach my cockatiel to not scream when I'm gone?

    So I have a new tiel (his name is Ollie) who is very attached to my husband and I. We've had him for about a month now. Due to the virus, my husband has had a hard time finding a new job, so he's been home most of the time. But a week ago he got a chance to work at a temporary job for a couple...

    Few feathers on my conure?

    My sun conure Rio has much less feathers than my other conure Sonny. They’re both basically the same age and it worries us that they have so little feathers! Does anyone know what could be the cause of this? (P.S we don’t know the genders of our birds yet, we’re hoping to get a DNA test soon)...

    Fan Safety?

    I am getting a yellow sided green cheek soon, and I am wondering if I can use my fan when it is in the cage. I know that i will never use it when the bird is outside the cage because that wouldn’t go so well with him being fully flighted once his wings grow back. My room gets hot during the...

    I can't function, all i think about is our potentially sick budgie.

    I've been posting threads and forums the past couple of days about our parakeet with sudden tail bobbing and signs of respiratory illness. My parents are practically impossible to talk into going to the vet. But I'm so stressed out by the idea of him struggling and us doing nothing to help him...

    Trust with my budgies

    Hello, I have had three budgies for over half a year now. I have not been aware of how to handle them, and I have been forcing them into my hand (I thought it was okay to hold them, I did not ever put pressure on their chests). I kissed them with dry lips and put them back after a few seconds...

    Biting Feathers

    Hi! I’m new, but I have been really worried. My sun conure Peach has been biting his flight feathers. We just moved, so it might be the fact he’s in a new environment? I don’t know, I’m just beyond worried. He is my little baby. He is currently on the Zupreem Fruit Blend pellets, and he gets...
