    Does mating dancing mean eggs?

    Hi everyone! I'm sure I'm just being a hyper-paranoid bird mom right now, but my 2 year old female cockatiel keeps doing a little mating call/dance and I am terrified that it means she is going to lay soon. I took her to the vet last time that she did this and she didn't have any eggs at the...

    Hormones, diet, weight

    My Amazon, without question, has hormonal issues. She wing flaps, does a little dance, and then rubs her vent on me or objects constantly. She recently started regurgitating (which was the last straw that lead me here). She does it all, essentially, with the exception of feather plucking. I...

    Mating Dances and Pants Plucking

    Hello all, My 2 year old female cockatiel just started doing what I presume to be a female mating call/dance (as I watched videos of female mating calls on youtube and it sounds exactly like she does). She sits in her food bowl while she does this, which makes me concerned that she might be...

    2.5 month old GCC already hormonal?

    Hi everyone, so I was spending time with Mac this morning and he started head bobbing like birds tend to do before regurgitating. He didn’t actually spit up anything as far as I could tell, and stopped after a bit and requested head scratches. I know that regurgitation can be a sign of...

    Hi, so I really need some advice for my lovebird, Boba. This post is kind of long and I think some parts may be unnecessary, but I really need to vent. Background: I have had him since late August of 2020, and I believe that he's around a year old now. I first bought him from a breeder, and he...

    Quaker won't stop masturbating and gets aggressive frequently. What do I do?

    My quaker parrot, Eddie, has been masturbating a LOT for the past maybe 8-10 months. I've been meaning to ask about it, but it's kept slipping my mind. It hasn't really gotten in the way of anything and I don't see it as necessarily harmful, but then again, I don't know. The way he does it is by...

    Training to Minimize Flock Calling

    My cockatiel has always been extremely good and quiet, willing to self entertaining and play with her toys. However, for the past week she has been waking up without fail at 7 AM, flock calling extremely loudly until I uncover her cage and let her out, and then continuing to flock call all day...

    Advice for Extremely Hormonal Lovebird?

    My peachfaced lovebird, Olive, is about 2 and recently (as of March) has gotten more and more hormonal and aggressive. She has never been a super cuddly/affectionate bird, and rather prefers to hang out on my shoulder or just sit on the couch next to me, but lately she has become impossible to...

    My CAG is a plucker, and it doesn't help that he's been very hormonal lately--regurgitated on my sister a couple of times. We're currently working on trying to fix his sleep schedule and diet (he is a VERY picky eater). I recently got a travel carrier to be his sleeper cage, however, he really...

    Parents want to clip my GCC's wings

    With the holidays and moving cross country due to a job, things have been extremely hectic here, and my GCC Gordi has been on a lot of roadtrips all over the place. Additionally, he is male and is almost two years old which I believe adds a hormonal factor to it. I believe it is just a hectic...
