    Urgent Night fright - consussion worries

    Genji had his first night fright in months about an hour ago. It didn't last long since I was sitting just a few feet away, and got to him In less than 10 seconds, but I'm worried he may have hit his head, since I found him in the upper corner on a perch when I lifted the blanket. For the...

    Why is my lovebird panicking all off a sudden?

    My lovebird (male, about 4.5 months old) has been acting weird lately. He's acting very paranoid and panicky in his cage when it is bed time (online time when he is in his cage). First I thought it was Night fright, but it also happens when it's still light. This has been going on for like 2...

    Should I cover my finches?

    Hey Everyone! When I first got Will and Arlo I didn’t cover their cage at night because my friend with budgies said they can get night terrors if you cover them the first night. So I decided to wait till they were settled in. I have had them for a while now, (over a month I believe) and I still...

    Cockatiel has a seemingly painful wing feather, what should I do?

    A couple of nights ago one of my tiels had a night fright. After comforting him and looking him over, I put him back to bed. I don't know if I just missed it or if it started bleeding after I put him back to bed, but in the morning I noticed just a little bit of dried blood on his wing. He's...

    Night frights

    So my budgies had a night fright when I accidentally bumped their cage, and it was pretty scary. What do you do when this happens? Usually I turn on the light and take off the cover(although I only cover when the light is on) and try to talk in a soft voice, but is there anything else I can do...

    Update on Pebble--the cockatiel who's original owner cut off the tail and wings

    So Pebble has been doing well overall but last night he had a night fright at about 4 am. As far as I know this is his first one as his previous owner (the one who chopped his feathers) said he never had one before. The problem is that Pebble must have broken blood feathers as he was bleeding...

    Cockatiel constant night frights

    Hello! I'm VERY worried for my cockatiel. He, for some reason has night frights every night, sometimes two in a night. He flaps his wings around and screams. Last night he did some weird noise while breathing. I tried pretty much everything I saw on the internet, from covering the whole cage...

    Falling off Perch?

    Hello Everyone! I posted a bit back about my little Cockatiel, Nimbus (He's almost 5 months old) but now I have a new concern and though I've read up about it I'm still curious to see what the lovely people of the site have to say. Nimbus falls off his perch when he sleeps, once or maybe even...
