    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...

    Looking for advice on how to prevent my pair of conures from mating.

    I have a pair of conures, a green cheek conure almost 2 years old (Ringabel) and a black cap conure about 1 year old (Alternis). I don't know the gender of either but Ringabel is trying to regurgitate for Alternis and has been looking for a place to nest under the bed I think. I've been trying...

    Is this a sign of progress???

    hi! I adopted a grey named Doot'na about a year and a half ago. She immediately took to my husband but was disdainful of me. I have been working to earn her love and my husband has no interest in her and so doesn't interact with her much. A few days ago I noticed that she suddenly was behaving...
