I have read that I should first put them in separate cages across the same room for one or two weeks so they can at...

    Is Anythin Wrong?

    Hi guys! I just got a new canary today named Spice! :heart: I bought him home a few hours ago, and he seems fine and is eating and drinking, but his 'chirps' are really soft... My other canary, Chili, has a high-pitched, long chirp, but this one has a kinda low, short chirp. It's only the first...

    New bird, new worries

    This week I'm going to pick up a two month old pearl white faced Cockatiel, independent, an absolute cutie. I think it might be female but it's still too young for me to know and I'm probably not getting a DNA test anytime soon. Either way I'm going to name it Plato since my last bird was named...
