    I don’t know what to do anymore and need help. It’s been over a month since my green cheek conure has been able to walk properly and $2500 in vet bills to find out absolutely nothing. Here’s the story: I’ve had my JJ for 9 years since he was a baby and I just rescued a green cheek and Quaker...

    Respiratory Infection?

    Every morning, when my cockatiel wakes up. He makes this weird exhale sound. He sounds kinda stuffy and congested. And what’s weird is that he always does it right after he drinks water. It lasts about 1 minute and then goes away. He seems to be drinking more water in the mornings than usual...

    Urgent Mockingbird: not moving, blank stare

    There's a mockingbird in our backyard that barely moves. It'll sit in one place for quite a long time staring blankly into the distance. If we approach it, it snaps out of it when we get close and scampers off. But then it'll resume just sitting there. I suspect that it's sick but don't know if...

    Lovebird toe necrosis progressing (Sad update #81)

    I had to work late on Thursday, 10/3, and got home about 15 minutes before the birds' light cut out for the night. I looked in and Peaches came flying straight into my face, as usual. Mango, however, just peaked out of the curtain and went back in to nest. I figured he was just tired and left...

I was in the living...
