I'm still doing my research and trying to decide if this lifestyle is right for me. I'm a young single guy with no other pets or children and I have a reasonable amount of time to...

    New Baby

    Hello all - I posted a few weeks ago about deciding on a new FID. I finally decided, and found the new family member. She is a beautiful female Ekkie ~ 3 months old. She is not fully weaned yet, so she may not be home for another month (possibly longer). However, I've paid a deposit to hold...

    Hi everyone!

    Hi everyone! My name is Bee and I just joined this forum! I've been a little bit of a lurker for a while, and I finally decided it might useful if I joined in! So let's see, I'm something of a newbie at keeping birds. I have a parakeet named Chirp, who I've had since May 24th of this year. I've...

    New here =) Love Advice

    My name is Samantha and I'm going to get a Parrotlet next weekend at a local bird show. I've had birds before but this will be the first one that I'm getting on my own and not a family pet. It's been a long time so I'm kind of nervous, I've been reading all the forums and watching YouTube videos...

    Finally reached featherhood

    Hello! My name is Ryly, I'm 23 and I've been reading the forums on this and many other similar sites for the last 9-10 years. I got my little gcc in May and thought I'd share how I finally obtained my little parrot friend. When I was in 4th grade I went to a big name pet store with my mom and...

    Cockatiel behaviours and questions :D

    I just got my very first pet, Pico, two days ago. It was the best day of my life. However, in hopes of understanding it more, here's what I do after reading many guides about caring a cockatiel. On the first day, Pico is so terrified that he didn't move for a few hours! So I sat next to his...

    Hello from the midwest.

    I've been on the AA forums and quite active on them, but I want to formally introduce myself and my feathered kid. His name is Rascal, he's a turquoise GCC. He's very playful, and smart (even though he doesn't like to listen.) I got him on Monday last week, and he's doing much better than at...

    Please help new Lorikeet "parent" - anxious!

    Hello. My 14 yo son and I brought our first Lorikeet home yesterday afternoon. It seemed to be going well but I must say that both my son and I are struck with anxiety about the bird's well being. I think it is because we don't know how to read our bird's body language yet and also, we're not...

    Kumo's settling in.

    So far, Kumo has been doing quite well. He still hasn't taken treats through the bars but has become more calm around my voice and being near the cage. He no longer dashes away and is quite a curious little thing! Even got him to eat a bit of kale and scrambled egg this morning. I opened his...

    So, I've been thinking about getting another parrot for a while. And I've leaned towards a love bird. I finally found the perfect little one! Right now, I have a 'Tiel as well as a GCC. So I'm familiar with birds with big personalities :hehe:. But while I've been around them before, I haven't...
