    Fridge Noise keeping my birds up

    I have my fridge in the corner of the living room. The ‘sleep’ cage(aka their normal one) is right across of it about 2m away , slightly to the left. I have measured the noise of the fridge when it does make it with a app once or twice and it was about 30-34db then, but it sounds a lot louder...

    Separated lovebirds/only let one out with the other in its cage after biting me

    So, I have two bonded female lovebirds who have been acting a bit more aggressive lately (I think they're hormonal). Every day I let them out for about 2-3 hours. They like to cuddle but have a tendency of biting any exposed skin. I'll tell them "no" and "stop" if they bite, but let them crawl...

    Trimming a new lovebird's nails???

    My two lovebirds (both female, both a year and a half old, bonded) have been biting their nails. I think they need to be trimmed, but I don't know how to do that when they won't let me hold them. They try to bite me whenever my hand draws near, and they've been especially grumpy lately. A lot...

    How to Train Biting Out of Lovebirds

    These birds are new, 3 days new. Both females, both a year and a half old, both bonded to one another. Their names are Lemon and Mango, and Mango seems to enjoy biting my finger. She and Lemon will bite the cage bars close to where I'm sitting, run their beaks up and down them, and rattle the...

    How do I help my new lovebirds sleep?

    So, I have two female lovebirds. They're a year and a half old, already bonded. I just got them yesterday, and I've been reading a bit about their light sensitivity. There are a lot of contradicting statements about helping them sleep — some said to put a sheet over their cage, while others said...

    Hi guys, so I just lost my lovebird Luno ☹️ due to pneumonia ☹️. Was very sad BUT I have another worry, he left behind Pepita and 3 + 1 hatched egg . Will Pepita be sad after she attends her babies? Is there something I should be worried about?

    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? Somewhere I had heard that mushrooms are a no no for parrots. If they are some toxic or psychedelic kind...
