    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...

    Help with a GCC..

    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. I thought if I could post here and get some advice that would help me more than trying to navigate through and find help for my situation. I...

    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...
