    How to "unbond" bonded bird?

    Hey, My dove (Baby, age 24 ish) loves men. He loves to be held and pet and especially loves being held and pet by my husband. Ive just started to learn more about what it means to "properly touch" birds without simulating them to bond to a human and see them as their mate. The more I learn...

    Mating, Not Breeding

    Hey everyone, I've had my lovebird for almost three years now and we've bonded, but I'm leaving for college in September. Bringing her with me isn't an option. My parents love her and will take care of her, but they cannot give her the same time and energy I can. We think the best course of...

    Convincing Taco that I'm not girlfriend material

    Over the past week or so, Taco has become much more comfortable in his new home, and more affectionate with me. He loves beaking me, dancing with me, and asking for scritches. But today, while getting his scritches, he took hold of my thumb and regurgitated for me. I took my hand away and went...

    Pigeon and dove companions?

    I have a male frillback pigeon and want to get him a companion, however there is no where to get another pigeon from near me. Would a handraised ringneck dove be an okay companion? They would be housed in a double macaw cage, which my boy is currently housed in. Would the risks be too great? Or...

    Bird attack

    I got a sun conure a month or so ago and she was the absolute sweetest thing to everyone in my family (excluding my four year old sister--she does not like small kids). However, in the past week or two she has become increasingly more aggressive towards my family members. She has very...
