    Amazon parrot advice?

    Hi everyone! In a few months, I will be getting a beautiful female blue-fronted amazon :D The breeder is currently hand-rearing the babies, and I'll get her at around 12 weeks of age. I've wanted an amazon for years now and I've been doing a lot of research to prepare. I wanted to get some...

    One VS Multiple Birds?

    Hello everyone! I have one bird now, a male GCC that is 2 1/2 years old. I've been contemplating getting an additional bird and now that I'm getting closer and closer to graduating from university I'm considering it harder. I plan on going to medical school, but that would result in him getting...

    Conure vs Lovebird?

    Hey guys! So I totally caught the bird bug and I’m thinking about getting a second bird. I’ve narrowed down my options to either a GCC or a peachie. I’m totally stuck between the two and was looking for some advice. For some background: I’m a college student, not living in dorms, and I do have...

    Eclectus Screaming at 6 months

    Hey everyone, I am relatively new to the Ekkie world. I am the proud owner of a 6 month old eclectus boy named Benji. I got him when he was just over 4 months. He was super quiet for 2 weeks, then in the last month and a half every time he sees me he caws really loudly. It will only start if he...

    Hello all! I’m Molly. I don’t currently have a bird, but I am looking to get one! I used to babysit a budgie, and have always wanted a bird since I was a kid, just was waiting until the right time. I am seriously looking at Eclectus as they have always been my favorite. I am looking for any...

    I need to know a cage size.

    For my bird I will be getting soon my mom ordered a cage. The dimensions are I believe 28x23x18-20. Are these appropriate sizes for budgies or cockatiels?

    Hello! I've got a complicated Cockatiel.

    Hello all! I've been lurking around reading a lot of really helpful posts here, but I have to admit I have a few more questions than I've found answers for. I apologize in advance if this is too long. So the backstory: December of last year (2018) I re-homed a 9 year old cockatiel. I'm at least...

    Looking for a parrot to join our family

    Hello everyone! I am so excited to get back into the bird world. When I was 17 I had a cockatoo, Linnie parakeet and had been a foster home for an Indian ringneck and rose breasted cockatoo. Now I’m 24, I have two kids under 5, own my own home, am a stay at home mom, and am so ready for a...

    Hello everyone! I am the proud new bird mama of a cinnamon pearl peid cockatiel baby! And I'm SO excited! I have been looking forward to getting this bird for years. I don't know if it's a girl or boy yet though fingers crossed it's a boy because the egg laying thing does scare me (but yes I do...

    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...

    New here, have a question! (about new parakeet!)

    Hello, I just got a new parakeet on Saturday (Today is Wednesday). I have a cockatiel and another parakeet already, who he has met and seems to enjoy, but Pickle (the new parakeet) seems like he might be sick. My other two are fine, so I don't think it's contagious. After some research I am...

    Mustache Parakeet People?

    Hello everyone! I might, just maybeee have the opportunity to adopt a mustache parakeet in a few months. His name is Pancho, and he belongs to my boss at the moment.

    Pumpkin is here!

    Picked up Pumpkin yesterday! He and Lily are “talking” with their highest pitched ear piercing noises, of course lol. But Pumpkin already ate a bit of pellets, apples, and grapes! AND I was honored today with head scratches and step ups!!!

    Conure Sleeping Habitat Questions

    Hello! I am new here so my apologies if this is in the wrong place! I made an account here because this is my first bird, and despite the hours and hours of research, watching a video vs. actually caring for the bird can never compare. My question for this particular thread is: Is it necessary...

    New cockatiel

    My birdie Socrates unfortunately passed away three months ago. Turns out he was already sick since the beginning with an almost incurable digestive disease. I truly loved him and did my best to care for him. But I’ve moved on and I’m ready to take I’m another feathered friend! I should be...

    Hello everyone! I’m new here and would really love some advice!

    I actually haven’t got a bird yet and was really wondering which species you would recommend for me. I obviously understand that each bird is an individual and you can’t guarantee a bird’s personality by their species but some help would be appreciated. I’m really torn between a few species-...

    Green cheeked conure biting

    I, as of December 30, 2018, Got a new pet conure. I haven’t had a bird for a few years, so I would say I’m learning. He does have a good lifestyle though. Anyways the problem is that he bites you when you hold him or touch his cage. He runs up to bite my finger when I am adjusting things in his...

    New green cheeked conure

    I recently (as of December 30, 2018) got a green cheeked conure. He is very loud and outgoing. He will eat treats from your hand. I am trying to pet him, and he keeps biting me. Does this mean that he doesn’t like to be touched? He is 4 years by the way. Any tips on how to gain his trust?

    Pictures Hello World!

    Hi there, I'm new on the forum! I've had budgies ever since I was a kid, and after the passing of my best bud Cookie I decided to get a cockatiel for a change. I looked for adoptions to no avail, so I finally opted for a breeder. When I met Charlie, it was love at first sight! He was born on...
