    The New Guy

    Adoption Health Concerns

    I have good news and "bad" news! The good news: I'm adopting a lovebird on Friday. I wasn't looking for another bird so soon, but it's happening and I couldn't be happier.

    Hello - Why is my lovebird plucking its feathers? :(

    Hello! I'm new here. Anyway, I'll go straight to the main topic. I got my lovebird about 6 years ago with no knowledge about lovebirds. (Actually even now I'm not very knowledgeable about birbs. I just know I want to keep a happy and healthy birb.) My lovebird is orange and green. When I first...

    How long after cleaning oven is it safe?

    Hi guys! So I know selfcleaning ovens are extremely dangerous and deadly for our little birdies. I just finished cooking and I am extremely tired and instead of turning the oven off I somehow put the temperature at Cleaning and the selector at bake. It took me a good 10 minutes to notice and now...

    Hi I took my lovebird for a crop exam and it came back with Staph Aureus and she’s gonna get antibiotics but I’m confused what this all means. I’ve never heard of this before and is it serious? Is the medication dangerous? Please help.

    Are a baby Caique and 4 Year Old Lovebird Compatible?

    We have had a lovebird for about 4 years. We decided to adopt a 6-month old caique. They haven't been in direct contact with each other for safety, but we are wondering if they are going to get along with one another. Thanks!

    Parrotlet v. Lovebird
