    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...

    Lovebird Regurgitating or Vomiting

    Hello, I have a 4 year old lovie she is a female and I keep her by herself. Lately she’s been enamored with her toys and she’s been hanging on them all day and screaming at them nonstop but yesterday. She hasn’t left her food bowl and keeps eating her pellets all day and getting angry if they’re...

    Sleeper Cage problems

    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...

I know it's not recommenced for just overly hormonal birds but Claire has been laying eggs for about a year now and not only has a 3-4 per batch but she also always has a...

    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...

    Dive bombing other bird...

    Hi everyone, This is my first time posting so hopefully I am doing this right... I am currently finalising the adoption of my female foster Indian Ringneck, Siren.

    First Time Bird Owner

    Hi all! I'm a first time bird owner with a hand-tame lutino cockatiel called Bambino, coming up to 6 months old. He bonded with me really quickly and now loves my partner too. We decided not to have him clipped and he's really good at flying now, he can be a bit mischievous but he's got a...

    A new skill?

    Expert tail-maker Sydney has been offering demonstrations on how to nest, however I'm not sure Adélie is learning much.... She is instead following in her fathers footsteps by following the other around and pulling out all the stored paper. *For anyone who doesn't know my birds, to clarify...

    Umbrella Cockatoo dislikes women

    So.... We adopted Penelope, a 35 year old Cockatoo. Her owner had passed and the wife had a love/hate relationship with the bird and had to part with it. She wanted to do more with Penelope but was afraid to let her out of her cage due to biting episodes. I was warned that she hated females and...

    My bird seems to hate me but also humps my hand?

    My cockatiel Rocky is super aggressive towards everyone, including myself. He seems to hate hands, if I stand by his cage and bring up a hand to scratch my face he'll lunge and start hissing. However, when I put my hand into his cage, he rushes over and starts to hump my hand. I'll try to put...

    Hormonal Behavior

    My bird is almost a year old now, and he's starting to become hormonal. He's gotten a lot meaner and won't let me pet him anymore. He also keeps running over to my closet door and tries to squeeze under it for some reason- not too sure what that's about. And he's definitely a 'love'-bird, as I...

    Depressed, Angry, Hormonal...

    I am... At a loss. I have had Remmy for almost 6 years, since he was not ever a year old. I was with him through his adolescents, through loss of trust, gaining it back.. I am beyond committed to his health and happiness. He has always been...Ornery, you could say. His hormones were always huge...

    Petey has been plucking chest feathers? (Photo included)

    Petey has been going through egg binding issues :( I’ve never had this problem before and am still dealing with it. She’s making soft eggs and can’t push them out. I’m hoping the vet and I will be able to fix the problem so that Petey will be okay. Maybe it’s hormonal, but it looks like she’s...

    Convincing Taco that I'm not girlfriend material

    Over the past week or so, Taco has become much more comfortable in his new home, and more affectionate with me. He loves beaking me, dancing with me, and asking for scritches. But today, while getting his scritches, he took hold of my thumb and regurgitated for me. I took my hand away and went...

    Feeding

    I know I have been down this road before, but I need some tips again please. Lada (female eclectus) is again getting broody. She laid an egg again yesterday. Last time was a few months ago... so not good in terms of span. The egg laying is not the problem though. She is and has been for quite...

    "Twitterpated" green cheek

    (Bambi reference to politely describe animals in spring time with a need to breed) Our gcc is constantly attempting to mate with my husband's hand or neck/collar bone. It was funny at first. But i am getting concerned because it is non-stop. Never with me. I don't let that kind of behaviour...

    Cockatiel HELP

    Hello, I'm new here and need some advice. I have what i *believe* is a female cockatiel called Ruby. She is nearly 2 years old. She is a very happy bird and live in our bedroom where she has free reign but sleeps in her cage at night. She also claimed one of our sock drawers as a "nest" / nap...

    My bird has gone insane.

    We have had our Congo African Grey Henry for a few years now. He is 15 years old. Last year around this time, he started chewing his feathers for the first time. Just around his crop, and it didn't get bad until January when we thought he was dying and rushed him to the vet because he had...

    supplements for a hormonal macaw

    My friend has a b/g macaw who is becoming hormonal. We have read the articles which are very good. I thought I had read in a thread long ago that there is a natural supplement that helps with hormonal birds. Is there such a thing? thank you.
