    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...

    New fid soon!

    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...
