    New/ Inherited Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo

    Hello All! I am about to be a first-time Cockatoo owner. I am inheriting a very lively, loud, 18-year-old male sulphur-crested cockatoo from my grandfather who is getting to a point where he can no longer take care of his 'too. However, I do have a few questions and I have tried to navigate and...

    New macaw mom to this girl- seeking to understand this behavior

    Hi everyone! Hope someone has insight to share- TIA :) A week ago we brought home this beautiful, traumatized, very timid B&G girl of 30years. She seems to be settling in ok, in that she is eating, sleeping, preening, taking snacks from my hand, even making some noise and saying hello, which...

    Sleep structure???

    Hey there community, I’m debating purchasing some kind of sleep structure for my new Quaker baby as a bit of extra comfort. But I don’t know if Puk is a male or female and I’m worried that a happy tent or something similar could trigger nesting behaviour and potentially egg laying. I’ve had a...

    Adding a Second Tiel

    Hi all, I was hoping to get some advice on introducing a second cockatiel to my little flock (which as of now consists only of myself and my 3 year old cockatiel Cricket). I will be starting vet school soon, meaning that I will be away from home and thus away from Cricket for longer periods of...

    Meet Siouxsie!!!

    Hey Everyone! I recently made a post looking to rehome my finch, Arlo after her mate passed away. Ive posted on many sites and no one has been interested. Arlo has been getting more and more depressed and confused without a partner. After many discussions, my grandparents have decided to take in...

    Hiya

    I just recently took in a young conure (born in January 2023). I am not sure of his color as I am sure it’s more dull than its supposed to be with the evidence of black barring. It is super friendly but a little skittish. I have gotten him to step up onto my fingers with using safflower seeds...

    New Friend Pistachio

    Hello to those reading this lovely thread. Our family recently rescued a beautiful Lovebird my daughter has formally named Pistachio. We are first time bird owners, trying to navigate how to properly take care of this lovely creature. We have gotten her quite a large cage, tons of toys...

    Would a Ring neck be a good companion for my Sun Conure?

    Hi everyone! First off I hope this is alright here, if not please let me know! A little back story. We had a Cinnamon Green Cheek and a Sun Conure together for most of their lives. While Mango (Sun Conure) wanted to be best friends with Claire (CGC) she barley wanted to return the feelings. He...

    Bringing home a new Caique - some questions

    Hello everyone! I have had my female caique Moki for some months now and she is currently 9 months old (I've had her since she was 3 months old). She has a really big cage, full of toys and she gets plenty of attention/out of cage. However, as a common human being, I work a 9-to-5 job, meaning...

    Our first second bird

    A little over a year ago we got our first bird a two month old green cheeked conure we named Hobgoblin aka Hobs. Over the course of the year he has become a bright, snuggly, fun little bird. We enjoy him very much. Yesterday we decided to add to the flock and brought home a 5 month old pearl...

    Sun conure bites and won’t let go

    I just got a conure yesterday and have had him all set up in my room, he likes hanging out on the top of the cage and to talk. He is very beautiful my only problem is his biting. I know birds are anxious about new environments so I understood at first and would leave him alone unless it was...

    Possibility for future flock growth, advice needed.

    Id like to preface this by saying the only 'communal' area my parrots share is the playroom. Their cages are positioned so they dont even have to look at eachother, they have a ton of privacy and each have specific play areas catered to their needs where they hang out 90% of the time. All play...

    Widowed Finch and Advice for the Future

    Hello friends, We said goodbye this morning to our dear Spice finch hen, Nutmeg. Her mate, Cinnamon, has been calling out today and it breaks my heart. They were purchased together, and I've had them about six years. I'm worried about buying just one more finch for him, and having him leave us...

    New to Birds, not to Pets

    Hello All! My name is Mandi and I am bringing home a Cinnamon Green Cheek Conure tomorrow (he is finally weaned, yay!). I named him Quincy (he is being DNA sexed this week so I hope I chose well haha). I have wanted a bird for years, but I haven't had or taken then time to do all my research...

    My new bird friend!

    Hey all, I adopted this fella about 2 weeks ago now and I’ve SLOWLY been working on gaining his trust and he’s doing AMAZING so far! He’s beginning to trust me much quicker than I anticipated. Yesterday he even came right near me and played on his little gym. I’m so happy he’s becoming...

    Should I get another bird for my birb?

    My birb(intentional spelling) Emmi is around 6 years old now she(at least what the breeder and the vet said, no blood test) and I think that she would do well with having another friend to keep her company when I’m out and about. I forget to mention that she is a Goffin Cockatoo and a pretty...

    Pictures Wondering about age...

    I recently, like a day ago, got myself some finches, Java Rice Finches to be exact. I don't know much about finches as I have a cockatiel and green cheek conure. The cage is 24x18x19, a touch smaller than I'd like and will be upgrading at some point. What I'd like to know is at what age do the...

    What paperwork should a bird have?

    Hi, I am getting a GCC on monday from a lady that says she breeds bird in a family environment. I was wondering what paperwork the bird is supposed to come with? Are leg bands, birth certificate important? Thanks

    Pictures Adopted my first bird who has a bad wing trim job

    Hi bird fam! I’m new to the parrot world but have done quite some research before adopting my new baby today. I do have a question though/was looking for feedback. She’s a turquoise yellowside conure who I’ve named Ezra, just 6 months old and was needing to be rehomed. I’ve just brought her...

    Questions on getting another Tiel?

    About a year ago I adopted a male cockatiel and it's been pretty nice. He hasn't always loved actually coming out/playing outside of his cage but recently he's been doing really good with it! I think we've bonded a lot more and I'm considering getting him a buddy?? I think he might benefit from...
