    Mating?! Inbreeding! Or just standing? Please help, moderately urgent (not very urgent as we are unsure of what we saw.)

    My sister saw my 2 cockatiels standing on one another twice. The 1st time Kiwi (for sure male) was nudging lemony (unsure of gender, but most likely female) to move from her perch so that he could cross (they share a cage) then when lemony wouldn’t move he walked over them, lemony- whose nails...

    Ants, ants EVERYWHERE

    So, it's practically summer over here in Australia and as you may know, lorikeet foods contain a LOT of sugar. This of course attracts ants, LOTS OF THEM, and it's driving me crazy. Every time I give my lorikeet food, even if it's just enough for him to finish it all, any trace of it can attract...

    Suddenly Hates me!!

    I got my Tiel about 2 months ago from a petshop (no breeders around me) and they told me he's about 12 weeks old. We made slow progress but he eventually would sit on my hand and eat his seed when I put it next to a perch but was more hesitant to perch on a finger. I've let him free a handful...

    Lorikeets and eggs

    hello friends, recently, my pair of lorikeets have mated and laid eggs. This really wasn’t my intention as I never expected them to breed as ones a rainbow and ones a musk but they did. I have already purchased a nest box and the birds seem content with it, with the female spending majority of...

    Urgent Cookware Problem

    I use a ceramic coated, carbon steel cookie sheet. It was sitting on my stove and I turned on the wrong burner like an idiot. It charred a circle on the pan and it was smoking a bit. I removed my bird from the area and turned on all fans and opened windows. Is something like this dangerous...

    Hello! I signed up for the site so I would be able to ask this because I'm at a lost since I have never worked with birds, or animals in general before.

    Pictures Sick budgie

    Hi everyone. I am concerned about my 8 year old male budgie. Since this morning, he has been fluffed up and sleeping excessively (or at least trying to). He has also been quiet and strangely docile. I was able to pick him up without any resistance (usually he bites the hell out of my hand or...

    I Introduced My Parrots To Each Other....

    I have been wanting a cockatiel for a while now, and a few months ago I asked if anybody thinks one would be okay with a lovebird. Most said No, and not to take the risk. But, I got a baby lutino cockatiel, and took the risk yesterday. Now.... They are great together!!! Pippin (the lovebird) is...
