    Hi It's so nice to see how welcoming everyone is!:joyful: A feathered friend is in my 2 year (or less) plan. At this time I am fairly decided on a brown necked poi. I have been researching, preparing, trying to narrow down which bird I might get and I found this forum while I was at it...

    Training inside the cage

    Hello! I recently took in a rehomed CAG. He is not very much into human interaction. He takes treats when I offer them holding them between tips of my fingers, but no more than that. He prefers to stay away from me. In his previous home (he stayed there for 1.5-2 months) he was used to going...

    New CAG owner

    Hello! I really love birds (especially parrots) and I'm from Baku, Azerbaijan. People here know less than nothing about proper care for pet birds and it's really hard to find any pet bird supplies here, too. But parrots mean world to me and I want to do my best for them. Recently I took in a...

    Hello folks :) I've been puttering around the forum lurking for a couple of years now waiting for the time to be right to adopt a little feathered beastie. Probably time to say hello then.

    Hello!

    Hi everyone :) I have been stalking on here for a while, but just joined. I have two 4y/o budgies, Wug and Schwa. They're my honeys and have helped me get through a lot in the past several years! They were already bonded when I bought them (yes, yes, from a pet store, don't judge me). I...

    Hi there! My bf and I are the proud owners of Monday and Tuesday, our 2 yellow Red-crowned Parakeets (also known as Kakarikis). This is my first time as a pet owner. My bf and his family had tons of budgies and cockatiels as he was growing up, so he's got much more experience. We've had them...

    New owner of GCCs

    I am a new, first time owner of a pair of sister green cheeks that were given to me. They are about 4-5 years old. The couple that had them, one of them was allergic, and the other began working all the time so they just didn't have the time to spend with them that the girls deserved. I am...
