    Preparing to Adopt an Older Grey, Need Advice on Making the Transition Easy

    I recently made the decision to switch from buying a baby to adopting a 22YO CAG from a retired couple in my area. According to them, he's the 'sweetest bird they've ever met' and has no behavioral issues whatsoever... but my family has purchased a lot of ranch horses, and all of them are 'the...

    Hello again cool friends of avian avenue!!! Hopefully this is the right place to ask this question. I need to move out, but my lovie is priority number one. I could afford to live in an apartment alone with him, but I worry about the noise he may make. He's definitely not the loudest...

    Safe Apartment Living and Moving

    I'm moving two hours drive away to my first apartment in one month. My nerves about concerns I'm not even sure are justified are through the roof :depressed: I'm well aware of everything that goes into bird-proofing a home, but are there any new concerns that comes with being in an apartment...

    Hey guys, so my husband and I are moving! Our new house is about 4-4.5 hours away. Should I move all four birds in one container? And what should I use?

    Moving/road trip with budgies

    Hey everyone! I've had my two budgies, Sam & Pippin, since March. In those 8 months, we've come a long way together! They readily eat from my hand, love (a select few) veggies, and hop onto my laptop to scream at my online classes. My family will be moving pretty soon, hopefully around the end...

    What's best for my bird?

    Soon I'll be going away for college and they don't allow pets. I can choose other colleges that let me stay close enough to home that I can stay with my bird but those colleges don't offer what I want to do. I love Sol dearly but even so he doesn't have the best conditions here. I can't let him...

    Pictures Should I take in these two budgies?

    My best friend just sent me a link to a Kijiji ad for two free budgies, and I feel so bad for them. Their human is moving and the birds HAVE to be sold by tomorrow evening, or...well, I don't know the or. But that's all the ad says and it makes me nervous. I wouldn't necessarily keep them, if I...

    What the heck is she doing??

    Hey guys!! So recently Kiwi, my gcc, has been doing something funny. I think she’s trying to be intimidating, but I’m not sure? I can’t find any pictures or videos of a bird doing it. I told her “no” firmly a few times to stop her from biting something on my bed and after a bit, she stood up...

    How mich time should I take my cockatiel per day?

    Help!! So this week it’s been very busy for our family since we’re moving and I almost never have time for my little buddy.

    Birds, College and foster homes

    Hi! I am a high school senior, and although I am taking a gap year, I am trying to think ahead as much as possible. I have 3 birds: a gcc, a bebe parrot, and a goffins cockatoo. Luckily, my G2 is just as (or more) bonded to my father, so leaving her is no problem. I'll miss her like crazy, but...
