    New Baby Ring-neck Parrot

    Hi everyone, my family and I recently got a ring-neck parrot called Ollie. He is only a month old and not very comfortable around us yet, we know it will take time, but we want to help him become happy here. Is there any tips to help him feel more comfortable? He loves his cage and when I get...

    Hello from a newbie

    Hi, I have just adopted a blue fronted amazon from a rescue. I like to think I know things but just like having babies years apart these memories and moments come and go. I’m happily browsing for now all the interesting notes and conversation, I’m certainly interested in giving him a better...

    Pictures Newbie with an adorable new Lovebird

    Although my parents bred all kinds of parrots when I was very young (a long, long time ago), I never had a bird of my own...until now! After a lot of research, I finally got my own little dinosaur on Monday- a little Lovebird. I intentionally got him (okay, I have no idea yet if he's a him. He...

    Scared about new parakeet's health!

    Hello! I'm new to these forums, and I made an account because I'm worried about my new parakeet. I have two budgies: Sock and Glove. I have had Glove for almost 2 months and we have a great bond. She's healthy, adorable, a bit cranky sometimes, but she's very loving. I got Sock a few days ago...

    Feedback for establishing good habits?

    Hi guys, We have a new 8 year old BH Pionus female. She's been with us for 5 days and so far things have been great! She is friendly, sweet, quiet, eats her Roudybush like its going out of style, loves her veggies. A breeze so far. I'm aware that it might be the "honeymoon" phase so I'm trying...

    4 Days in w/ Zephyr!

    Things are going great with our sweet gal! :swoon: She has settled in remarkably well. She loves her pellets, and her constant huge poops reflect how well she's eating! Haha. She seems happy in her cage, although she hasn't shown much interest in the toys she has in there yet. Most of the day...

    Pictures Meet Zephyr, Our Re-Homed Pionus!

    Hi everybody! Yesterday we brought home Zephyr, a sweet 8 year old female blue-head who was needing a new home after her former owners gave her up due to health concerns (theirs, not hers). She is our first bird! She appears to be a very sweet, tame, well looked after young lady. We're so, so...

    Male or Female??

    I have a male wbc that is 7 months old. We want to add a second wbc but are unsure if we should add a male or a female. Can anyone give us some proud and cons each way? Thank you.

    Amazon whining like dog?

    Unsure what this means? I have had Lolo one week a yellow nape Amazon around 13-20 years. Since monday when I get home or feed her breakfast she will whine like a dog chirp and I think regurgitate her food? What does this mean? She won't always step up while she is going off and I usually let...

    Don't know if I should get my lovebird a mate?

    Hello! So I've been looking around through posts here that are related to this topic, but I would prefer to seek out advice that is specific to my situation. I was recently gifted a male masked lovebird, and I have had him for about four months. I'm not sure exactly how old he is, but I was...

    Unique housing situation, can’t make a decision!

    Hey everyone! I joined the forum today to get advice as to which bird will be my next.. I had a cockatiel (Chi) until January 29, 2016 that was truly the love of my life. She was the cuddliest cockatiel I have ever known - we did everything together. It was heartbreaking when she passed away...

    my budgie came up to my hand!

    My parakeet came up to my hand and perched. I have been reading online that to have a budgie get used to you hand, you start with you hand outside of the cage for a few days, then slowly transfer inside getting slightly closer each time. This is my forth day with her and the first day with the...

    Adding a 3rd female?

    Hi, I’m very new to the Avian pet community, my first two being my female budgies named Piper and Bebe, and let’s just say every day is a new learning challenge. Piper and Bebe are not yet tamed, they won’t perch on my finger, and fly away whenever my hand is in the cage. They won’t leave...

    New Cockatiel! Crest hasn't gone down...

    (I'm not sure on the gender because of her age and morph, but considering she is only lightly pied, I'll assume she's a girl.) Well, let me be more specific. It goes halfway down when she's eating. She finally came in via United on monday circa 6:20 pm. She's also flighty! I expected that, but...

    New Bird Mama Here!

    Hai everyone! A new bird mama here. I'm absolutely loving the challenges that my little ones bring me. I have had a fancy parakeet I got in a pet store for about 4 years now. I decided I wanted to get a bird that would be more interested in me than singing to the birds outside. I still love my...
