    Pictures The silencer*

    *well more or less ;) I don't have the biggest imagination when making DIY toys, but I do know what they enjoy... The flock (mainly the Blue Team) has been so noisy today, I think the doves aren't helping either. So, a 5 minute toy is created and now I have a little bit of peace and quiet...

    Bonding with Lovebird

    Hey everyone, So about 10 days ago I got a handfed baby lovebird (8 weeks or so) and I was wondering if anyone can give me some tips and tricks on bonding with her. So far I have just sat by her cage periodically and talked to her gently and put my hand in or by the cage to get her used to...

    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...

    Video I hear this every afternoon...

    This is the sound these guys make when they are winding down for a nap... Every single day. Bear in mind it is louder and more shrill in person. Sydney and Adélie don't get involved, this is all the blue team, mainly these two, Lapis and Nube. Why can't they just close their eyes and nap?...

    A modern day birdy love saga

    Will she wait for him? Starting a few weeks ago when Adélie started to spread her wings in her cage whilst gazing at Sydney, it has been a slow journey to love for her. Since then we have had Adélie using her beautiful wings and loud vocals as tools in the hopes of seducing the handsome (and...

    Video She's such a good girl...

    ... Or is she?... Is she really? o_O Of course she is! I'm thinking this is her way of telling me, "there's no more millet left on here, fill it now human fool!" :)

    Lovie with Circovirus but noisy

    Soooo I got my lovie of June last year. Early this year he started losing feathers. I was almost positive he was plucking as I watched him do it. Vets did mite treatment. Seemed to stop plucking and feathers were growing. Then one day I came home and he was bald again. Did the test and he...

    Conure vs Lovebird?

    Hey guys! So I totally caught the bird bug and I’m thinking about getting a second bird. I’ve narrowed down my options to either a GCC or a peachie. I’m totally stuck between the two and was looking for some advice. For some background: I’m a college student, not living in dorms, and I do have...

    One year rewind

    This just popped up on my Google pictures, it was taken a year ago. And wow, so much has changed in 12 months, more notably, the arrival of all the young birds. In just one year, we doubled how many birds we have. That's a lot, I only see that now, looking back. But still, as noisy as they are...

    Video Aldora is happy again :)

    So we´ve done the eggs... done the mood swings... done with all the aggression... and now she´s calmer again. She is much more active, coming out of her cage more often, flying more and in turn, coming to greet me more. And because she´s not hormonal now, she doesn´t attack the little ones for...
