    Hello everyone! I’m the new owner of a very cuddly green cheek conure who was a rehome! As we are adjusting to one another I will be seeking advice on diet and training! She isn’t my first bird (I also have two cockatiels in the home) but she is definitely the most needy of my attention! Glad...

    Hello! I am so delighted to finally join all of you. Ever since I was a child, it has been a dream to welcome a feathered companion into my life. Growing up, my great-grandmother had a beautiful parrot—a type of amazon, if my memory is correct—and this was the beginning of a lifelong passion...

    My New Bird

    So, I'm a first time cockatiel owner and I'm so worried about my 2 month old cockatiel. We got him yesterday, and obviously, he just sat on his perch the whole day, sometimes would move from perch to perch, chew on the perch and preen. So we thought he was already adjusting quite well. I woke...

    Is 8 weeks young for a cockatiel?

    As some of you guys know, I am getting a beautiful pied male cockatiel. You can see pics of him on my profile in previous threads. He is now 8 weeks old, nearly weaned, is this considered too young to bring home? Also, when will his real behavior come out? Right now he bites a lot! He uses his...

I had to use a new lampshade to accommodate for the size...
