    Video Tiel screaming

    I know I've done a thread on this recently but I filmed the guy and will put it here. Apologies if I shouldn't post this many threads and should just continue old ones I'm just worried I might be doing something wrong as a new bird owner, I want to make sure Sol has as good a life as I can make it.

    New Cockatiel suddenly starts singing/screaming

    I don't know if it's bad or good, but just in case it's bad I want to check here. The title says it all, he's only been here a few days would barely chirp and now he's just going. I'll whistle he'll stop for a second and then he'll keep going

    Cockatiel's stressful first day

    Okay, so I'm new to being a bird owner and I recently bought a Cockatiel. I got the same food brand from where he came from and I named him Sol. He doesn't have clipped wings, they put him in a box and we failed to get him in the cage and he flew into the corner. I had a friend with me that day...

    New budgie

    I'm a new owner of a budgie. I've had her for a few months now and bonding is tough. I've studied as much as I can and been very patient with her. But no matter what I do she's still scared to come close to me. I need some advise. I don't know what to do now.

    What seed to get for budgies? (UK)

    I'm getting a budgie, but a lot sooner than I anticipated. I'm aware a lot of brands of mass produced budgie seed are bad for them, but I'm getting it in the next week and live in a remote area and don't have time to order a organic/healthy seed mix. Does anyone live in the UK and know of a good...
