    Abundance weaning. Opinions?

    Me and Adelie are just home from the vet (I just took her for a check up) and when the vet asked what her diet is now, his face had a look of horror when I told him she is still weaning. The words out of his mouth; ¨muy mal!¨ (Very bad!). He says I should cut her off from her morning feed, now...

    Pictures A new friend for Adélie

    I have found that Adélie really enjoys her soft toys. She snoozes on the dragons face as it has a long nose like a perch. So when I was out today and spotted this, I thought Adélie would like it, "oooh, who that?" "yes, like him" "oh no, this not safe, bad human!" "much...

    I am brand new to Avian Avenue, I am desperate looking for some help with my lovebird Eleanor. I apologize for the long post. I have had Eleanor for almost 3 years now.

    Video Adélies first bath

    So today Adélie, at 16 weeks and 2 days old, took her FIRST BATH! And you know I videoed it for you all! ;) Enjoy! ❤️ It took her a little while to figure out how to shake her tail to get rid of the excess water, but she figured it all out in the end :)

    Lovebird And Cockatiel

    I have a 7 year old male peach faced lovebird. His name is Pippin. He is so adorable! Anyway, I want to get him a buddy. And I want another bird. I want any of these 2 breeds, Cockatiel, or Lovebird. But I think it would be very interesting to get a cockatiel. Would it be okay if I got a baby...

    Video I´m confused: What is going on?

    I have experienced one of the weirdest moments with my birds today. I want to share it and see if you guys have any insight as to what may be causing the behavioural shift. So the basic backstory is Aldora and Sydney do NOT get on. They will both attack each other, and neither back down from a...

    Pictures Adélies house set up

    So for a long time, Adélie was living in an 18x16x18 (the nursery/travel cage) while I observed her to figure out what she can and can't do with her closed foot. I originally was going to wait until weaned before making a purchase because I wasn't even sure on what cage to get. But Adélie is...

    Gender reveal?: It´s a... ?!

    So as anyone who knows me knows, none of my birds have been DNA sexed. I know Aldora is a hen, and Jaime is a cock and it is undisputable. However, when Lapis and Nube were born they bonded as they grew up. By the time their plumage had grown in, they were a bonded pair. So I kept both and...
