    Soundproof Cage

    I have a couple tiels and when I want to spend one-on-one time with one and take it out of the room, they both start screaming for eachother. It is incredibly loud and highly distracting when they are trying to learn tricks and things. They aren't even good friends; they both have to live in...

    Anyone have experience with raspy sounding contact calls?

    Hi all, About 5 days ago I noticed my GCC suddenly had a sort of raspy, hoarse sounding contact call. Just to be clear, I did call our avian vet ASAP who stated she believed that it was due to the dryer climate and we scheduled the next appointment to be safe but they were booked out almost 2...

    Just getting to know each other or fighting?

    Hi All, we introduced a second bird to our home about one month and a half ago. We have kept her (Pearl) separated from our existing bird (Galleon) and have slowly started to introduce them. They seem 100% fine with each other until Pearl gets too close to Galleon. They can sit on opposite ends...

    Mumma boy Lori won’t let me leave his sight!

    Hi all. I’m hoping someone might have some advice for me. Georgie is a 5mo rainbow Lori we have adopted and he is quite beloved. We have had him only a month but he has very much bonded with me and my partner (and sometimes our 7yo son). He was hand reared from birth (we are told). He’s friendly...

    Lovebird won't stop screaming

    About a month ago, my partner and I took in a lovebird that we believe was cage-bound for most of his life. We have found that if he hears us or our other bird, he will start going off and he can go for hours! We give the lovebird the option to stay in or leave his cage but whether he is in the...

    Hi All ! Wanting My Dream Bird, Umbrella Cockatoo. Is It Time For Me Yet ?

    Hi all, I am new to the forum, but have been a bird lover all my life. Since I was little, I ALWAYS wanted a cockatoo. After moving back into a family owned apartment building, I’ve been considering it more. There was a family with a special needs adult male that lived above me, and he’d...

    Super loud female?

    My baby cockatiel (and new best friend, I'm totally in love with his sweet little face) wasn't sexed at the breeder I got him from. He's a gray and had a very female look to him, but I wonder because he is LOUD. Like, crazy loud. I've been around conures that were quieter than him. The bird...

    Don't know how to get my birds calm in morning

    Hello, my two budgies sleep in my room, I cover their cage with a bed sheet. But in the morning, cage cover on or off, they start angry chirping and fly every where crazy until I either leave the room or let them out. They don't stop. It's like a habit now!!! I can't wake up peacefully and I...

    I live in an apartment and own a pair of lovebirds and from time to time during the day, they will just continue to shriek as loud as they can for like 15 minutes straight, multiple times a day. Not only is it extremely irritating to me and the other people living in my house, but I'm sure the...

    Contact Calling

    Hey everyone! I’ve had my bird Bloo for about a year now, and recently he has been loudly contact calling(I think that’s what it is) nonstop. He used to when we first got him, but he soon stopped and hasn’t really done it until the past month. He is very obsessed with a bell toy he has, and he...

    How loud are Blue-Throated Conures?

    I was doing my research for birds and I fell in love with the Blue-throated Conure and I was wondering how loud they are? I live in an apartment. They're in the Pyrrhura family and I've heard that they were a "quiet" species. Thanks!

    Should I rescue this Quaker?

    So there is this Quaker I have had my eyes on for a while, (his name is Taiyou, he's in my signature). He lives at my relative's house in another state, but whenever I am down there I get to spend time with him cause I usually stay at said person's house. He is on a seed diet, clipped, and seems...

    Need some help

    Hello guys. Let me introduce my birds. I have a 1-year old female cinnamon cockatiel and I recently got a (I'm guessing) 5-month old male whiteface pied cockatiel. I'm having problems with both birds. The female and the male get along fine for the most part. However I only see the female...

    Is Aviation Safe?

    Hi everyone! I'm wondering if it would be safe to take my CAG in a general aviation aircraft (like a Cessna 172). These planes are rather loud inside, so I'm wondering if this would damage my parrot's hearing. Why would I want to do this? For traveling by personal aircraft instead of by car...
