I was a little worried because part of it was bruised but assumed it would be better the next night. Next night, nothing really changed. He still tried to keep his eye shut and was rubbing...

    Hello! Curious if this is normal behavior or if I should seek a vet over this... (check linked video my cockatiel (male, 3yr old) for the past two or three days has been, what I can assume is, regurgitating. I don’t own any other birds. Ever since he was a baby, he’s absolutely LOVED to bang...

    How To Preen?

    I have an African Grey, Ms. Bailey. As you all probably know finding her a cage-mate is an extremely difficult task since Greys are so hard to come by. I can’t even find a breeder that has any on hand right now. Anywho, Ms. Bailey’s feathers seem a bit scraggly and with her being an older bird...

    As of this morning, Cicero started making these weird ''snotty/clicking'' and ''hiccup'' sounds. I have no clue as to what they are or if she's in any danger. I'm worried that maybe she's sick or has something caught in her throat. However, her poop is normal and she doesn't really have the...
