    Lovebird Regurgitating or Vomiting

    Hello, I have a 4 year old lovie she is a female and I keep her by herself. Lately she’s been enamored with her toys and she’s been hanging on them all day and screaming at them nonstop but yesterday. She hasn’t left her food bowl and keeps eating her pellets all day and getting angry if they’re...

    Male budgies mating? What to do?

    Hello, I have two budgies, one is about 2.5 - 3 years old and the other about 1 year old. (I didn't know their exact ages when I adopted them). They both display behaviors and physical characteristics of male birds. I will post pictures of them...Oliver, the youngest, has a blue cere. Snowflake...

    Mating?! Inbreeding! Or just standing? Please help, moderately urgent (not very urgent as we are unsure of what we saw.)

    My sister saw my 2 cockatiels standing on one another twice. The 1st time Kiwi (for sure male) was nudging lemony (unsure of gender, but most likely female) to move from her perch so that he could cross (they share a cage) then when lemony wouldn’t move he walked over them, lemony- whose nails...

    Lovebird's Possible Chronic Egg Laying With Mate

    Hi All! I have a pair of lovebirds that have mated. The female laid four eggs at the end of last month, immediately abandoned them, mated with her mate and is now laying more. I am very worried about her getting sick or eggbound, especially if she abandons these and continues to mate and lay...

    What a day! My girl is all grown!

    We've had an eventful day, and I don't even mean about the mini mountain of peppers. I have had quite the day with my feathered family. So today, Sydney (my unsexed lone bird) was spreading wings for Jaime, who was happily watching from the top of the cage, while his girlfriend watched from...

    Hormonal and VERY BITEY GCC!

    Hi everyone! My GCC is about 1 and a half years old, and as of 3 or 4 weeks ago he started getting... frisky. Having researched GCC mating behaviors, it has come to my attention that he is absolutely decided that my brother is his mate. Which is A: sorta gross and B: super inconvenient because...

    Mating cockatiels

    Hi, I am new to this website and i hope I am posting or the right forum, anyways. I have a sort of aviary (too small to be an aviary too big to be a cage) and I have 2 cockatiels (male and female) and a budgie. They have lived together for over a year and they are all ready to mate. This is the...

    Canary pair problems

    I was given two canaries (one female and one male) by my cousin who could not care for them anymore and I've had them for about a year and a half. In April, the female canary had to be taken to the vet to have her leg band removed because it was constricting her. I had kept her in a separate...

    2 Male Lovebirds - MAting?

    Hi all, Brand new here. My son inherited 2 lovebirds, apparently 2 males. They are "young" but mature (over a year old) and are very healthy. They are well bonded, get along, and do all things a couple should do. But I want to check in on this. I understand that 2 males can bond and even...

    New female at home, need advice

    Hello dear all, I am new here and would really like opinion on experienced owners of caiques. (short version) New female (2 years old) introduced to 1.5 year old male. 3 hours of cage to cage contact, no aggression just sweet sounds and curiosity. The moment they are out male is attacking...

    Are my lovebirds gay?

    Hello everyone my lovebirds have been mating a lot and I’ve heard that they can mate with the same gender so I’ve assumed they are both males because there are no eggs and they’ve been mating for months and months more than half a year (I think) and it’s really picked up and at first I got so...

    Strange Behavior. Help please :)

    So I have an almost 1 year old gold capped conure. Recently he/she (dna test pending) has started molting. Today they started acting very out of character. Mango is quite the independent conure. He’s rather content sitting by himself to preen his feathers. He’ll swing by for the occasional...

    DNA sexing wrong?

    My 4 month old Pineapple GCC has been acting strange lately. She grabs my finger with her beak and puts either one or both of her feet on it, and fluffs up a bit and wags her tail. Does this mean she is trying to mate with me? The breeder DNA sex'd her female, but I'm not convinced she isnt a...

    Emma & Charlie are parents!

    Well at least they are on the way... As anticipated, Emma laid her first egg today. She seems to have immediately taken to sitting on it as opposed to waiting a few days to start incubating. I'm guessing this may be because she is still a young inexperienced parent? Or, perhaps its just her...

    To pair or not to pair?

    Hibou has been single since I got him almost 2 years ago (in other words; his entire life so far). He has mirrors, toys, and lots of attention to keep him happy. Though, I have been wondering lately, as he's become far more vocal and clingy, would he be happier with a mate? He also gets very...

    A mate for my parrot? Oblivious owner.

    Hi guys! I'm in need of some help. I've had my female 14 y/o Congo for 13 years, but I think she could be happier if she were not in an indoor cage and got more attention (I live in a coop so she lives with my parents). Someone coming over to do house repairs saw her and said he has been...

    How do I discourage female conure mating behavior?

    I don't know the exact age of my female conure, but she's likely 2-3 years old because she's been exhibiting lots of hormonal behavior lately. In addition, I think she's chosen my dad as a mate. She can differentiate his footsteps and gets so excited whenever she hears his voice that she'll drop...
