    Urgent Cockatiel lost voice

    Okay so it’s a long journey hope you guys can help me. My 2 year old female cockatiel started having a raspy voice exactly a month ago. I took her to vet as soon as her voice changed.

    Help! my cockatiel is having muted chirps

    Im a fairly new bird owner and I have a cockatiel about 6mth old. Recently (1wk ago), I went out and came back in the evening, there were a few specks of blood at the bottom of her cage, it had come from her wing. It was clotted so I thought it was alright (vets near my area are really...

    Cage Location - I want to put my cockatiel in the main living area, but I’m not sure how safe it is.

    I have a cockatiel (Gnocchi), and he is a social butterfly (as I’ve heard lots of cockatiels are). I am currently keeping Gnocchi in my room, because...I have cats (I feel like there should be dramatic music here), but I feel as though this might not fit my Gnocchi’s big personality. You see...

    Attached too soon

    Hello, brand new bird owner here! I’m panicking a bit (understatement) because I’m worried my cockatiel is too “attached” to me already...

    Thinking about purchasing a conure. Currently own one budgie. Need help deciding

    I'm considering getting a conure, I already have a budgie that is almost completely trained. Should i get a conure after 100% training the budgie?? If so which ones and how should i space the cages apart so neither of them get hurt. I would only let one out at a time of course. Is this safe?

    Safe wood?

    I was walking around my backyard when I noticed this little branch saying hello. It fell from this tree (I’m 99.99% positive.) We don’t spray our trees, so I know it will be safe in that matter. I just need to know what kind of tree it is, and if it’s safe! My best bet is a white maple tree...
