    Is Passion female?

    Hello everyone! I just wanted to ask what to look for in a female bird. I am pretty sure Passion is a female, but I really don't know. Do all Lovebirds put twigs (Millet Stem) under their wings and bring it up high? I feel like that's something female birds do to make a nest. In other words...

    Kiwi plucking his chest and masturbating 24/7

    Hello guys! A year ago me and my partner got Kiwi, he is an Agaporni fischeri and our first bird. A few months ago he started humping my hands and my girlfriend's hoodie, that's all he would do the second he got out the cage - hump and regurgitate. I even went to vet but he said it was his way...

    This may be an odd observation on my part, but I'm curious if anyone else has noticed that lovebird based accounts on Instagram are primarily Chinese & Japanese and does anyone know why this is the case?

    Lion's Mane Mushroom - safe?

    I have a question about Lions Mane Mushrooms. There is a gal on the Lovebird forums on Facebook that may have a brain injured Lovebird. Would just a tiny bit of Lion's Mane mushroom be ok?

    hand reading formula?

    I know i’ve been asking a lot of questions, but i’m trying to be as safe as possible. Is this a safe and good hand rearing formula for a baby lovebird ? I live in Australia so i might not have the same options as people who live in different parts in the world.
