    Pictures I'm always the bearer of bad news...

    ...so I figured it was high time to bring on the good news! :D The lunacy is nigh unending in this crazy zoo of a household, but as of this very moment, things are looking super high. My bully breed mix, who has been suffering with one illness or another since she was rescued from the streets...

    Video Dancin' fool!

    Taco hates dancing on camera, so I had to go covert to get this. He got wise to my stealth, though. :D He's such a cutie. I replayed this part of Zoolander a good 30 times because he was having so much fun rocking out to the song. :disco:

    The mango meister has joined in the screech-fest

    Though Kraz and Aurélie are both first-rate screamers and live to shriek at each other across the hallway, Taco and Kamara have always been very quiet and well-mannered. Of course they always join in the Dawn Chorus and they like to chat, but their hollers are few and far between. But Taco has...

    Rescue Greenwing

    Free-range rainbow chicken

    Today is the day. After months of preparation, Taco is taking his first steps into cage-free living. He's been doing good in practice runs and proven himself trustworthy (or at least...not TOO bad :angelic:), and I've gone ham in ensuring that walls, floor, and other hard surfaces are well...

    Hahn’s macaw baby

    Hi all. I just got my first Hahn’s macaw today and I’m concerned about its behavior. It is 7 weeks old and was handreared but i have to feed it 3 times a day on formula. The baby is very quiet and barely makes any noise and does not scurry away when I come near it. The baby does not appear...

    Ending the year with a bang...literally...

    I'm sure most of you know where this is going. :mad2: All the mentions of Taco's habit of getting himself into trouble on the 2018 memory thread and here he is again, sending off the Year of Vet Bills with yet another mishap. I mean, at least he didn't fly into the wall a second time...he DID...

    Pictures Anyone have opinions on A&E aviaries?

    I've been on the hunt for a big, beautiful new cage for Taco since I brought him home in May, and I just happened across a walk-in aviary on Kijiji for 40% off the retail price in great condition. It's 62"×62"×79" with inch-wide bar spacing, and I'm allllll over the idea of Taco having such a...

    Apparently, Taco's for sale!

    So, it's 9:30 at night, I'm sitting in the living room with my cat watching a movie, and someone comes knocking and ringing at my door. I automatically assume it's the postman coming with my SS delivery, so I head right on over to answer it...but it isn't the postman. It's a guy in his...

    Macaw beak irritation?

    I brought home my blue and gold macaw today, everything going fine he's settling in nicely. Just recently maybe a good 15-20 mins ago he started showing signs of irritation in his beak, his foot itching there, crunching sounds whenever he moved the beak and he would use his wings to tap his...

    Hello everyone. I need advice of birds specialist. My Alexander (Gold and Blue macaw) suddenly began lie down on his chest since 5 days. He does this in the morning and in the evening.

    Pictures Taco broke his beak -_-

    Remember when I joked about this kid needing to be swathed in bubble wrap? :shifty: Pro tip: When you're getting so excited over a new toy that you've already bonked yourself hard on your cage bars twice, maybe you should stop smashing it for a second and let your mom move it to a safer...

    Pictures Taco is plucking and barbering again...

    When I adopted Taco, it was obvious to me that he'd been plucking and barbering his feathers for a long time. His old owners claimed it had been his mate, Trixie, stealing feathers off of him to line her many nests, but considering his abuse and neglect (and the fact that Trixie had died, but...

    Video Macaw purrs :D

    Is anything cuter than a purring mac? :cloud9: Taco's getting ready for a nap, giving himself his usual pre-snooze scritch fest, and purring up a storm. Man, this cage is ugly. I can't wait to get him a big, pretty new one! (Sorry for the unsteady camera work, it's super zoomed in lol)

    Pictures New foraging boxes!

    Taco, Kamara and Aurélie got some new foraging boxes today! :D So far we've got lots of paper and cardboard to shred, wooden foot toys, coin sorters with nutriberries stuffed inside, and some paper cups with their favourite treats. They all seem a little bamboozled but intrigued. Taco's eyeing...

    I gave Taco a bad fright; his fear of sticks is getting worse...

    Taco, Kamara and Kraz are all afraid of sticks, but Taco's fear has been getting worse and it's come to the point where anything even resembling a stick being in his line of sight is terrifying. Kraz and Kamara are only afraid when sticks are in their space or coming near them, but Taco will go...

    Tropical Carnival Big Bites?

    Anybody feed this to their macs or 'toos? I saw it when I was grabbing some pellets and I was intrigued. But even if you haven't, what do you think? A nice bag o' treats or too much fatty stuff? F.M. Brown Tropical Carnival Macaw Food, 14-Pound: Amazon.ca: Pet Supplies
