    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...

    I Have Obtained Bird

    I don't know the gender (it doesn't have that much yellow, so I was thinking female. It is a cinnamon, if that helps), I was hoping someone could help me out. The birb came with clipped wings :( (At least it is not severe, just barely clipped, but it is still sad). We are thinking of naming it...

    YAY :D

He (IDK their gender, but I'm going to keep on saying he until I know :p ) is ready to take home, but we're going to wait a week (painted some rooms, not the one he is going to be in though). I'm so excited!!! (His talons are kinda sharp, and it kind of looks like i have...

    Some Questions & News!

    Hi again, I have a few questions! 1. I was watching youtube (Denny the Budgie), and it said to put some Apple Cider Vinegar in your bird's water about once a week. Do any of y'all do this? If so, how much do I put in? 2. Does anyone know anything about GreenPans? My family uses these sometimes...

    New Budgie Kicking Seeds Out

    Hello, I have a baby male budgie that I brought home just yesterday. He is in his own cage on the far opposite side of the room from my 3 budgies in a large cage. He only stays on the side nearest the other cage. Also, he gets in his bowl and throws/ kicks the seeds out with his feet. I have...

    Possible new addition...

    So, usually I’d just stick to bird stuff but... I might get a puppy! :laughing12: I have a bit of experience with dogs, I used to have a foster, but he was adopted a while ago. This isn’t an impulse buy, I’ve wanted a dog ever since the last one was adopted, and I’ve done a lot of research. I...
