    Wing flipping

    Hello! My budgie keeps on flipping her wing up like when you raise your arms up. She does it very slowly, and often leans to one side. Could this mean that she's hurt? She is still very energetic and playful. She still flies around, so I don't know whether or not I should bring her to a vet.

    Is my bird sick?

    My girlfriend and I have made a few posts recently on different sub-forums about my two cockatiels, Russet and Baby. I had Baby for around three years and got Russet during this past Summer from someone who was rehoming him because they could no longer take care of him. It has been difficult to...

    Urgent Conure laying eggs

    My pineapple conure started laying eggs (due to male activity) and I’m wondering how long it takes to lay an egg? She laid her first egg 48 hours ago (the egg appeared to be healthy). She has an ‘egg butt’, and she is acting normal for the most part. I’m starting to get worried that her egg...
