    Indoor aviary cohabiting

    Hi, so I’ve recently decided to convert my new dog crate into a sort of indoor aviary as my dog doesn’t use it. It’s 94cm wide, 55cm wide and 61cm deep. And as there is an opening at the top i plan on putting a cage with similar height and depth measurements on top. I have 2 budgies, 2...

    Will getting a cockatoo be unfair to my other bird?

    Hi, my name is Dani. I've just joined here to seek advice on the dynamics of adopting a new cockatoo, when I already have a cockatiel that's closely bonded to me. I want to make sure I'm doing right by both birds. I've thought on getting a cockatoo for years, and definitely want one, but I've...

    Parrotlets in Bird Room - Hazard to Other Birds?

    I have had a pair of parrotlets in quarantine for nearly a month, and was planning to transition them into a new cage in my bird room sometime in the next few weeks. However, I have been reading about more aggressive hookbills doing serious damage to or killing other birds FROM WITHIN THEIR OWN...

    Cockatiel and Bourke's Parakeet Together?

    I have a Bourke's parakeet who was recently widowed. She seems very lonesome, and where I live my options for finding her a mate are pretty slim. She currently visits my budgies every morning and would like to sleep either in or near their cage now that she is alone, but I think in the long run...
