    Nipping Sun Conure

    Hi everyone! New conure owner here. I’ve had my baby since April and he’s going to be 5 months in about 2 weeks. I’ve noticed in the past week my baby is nipping us a lot when he spends time with us. He likes spending time with my brother and I and when he’s with us everything is up for grabs...

    Playing rough and nipping

    I need some help with my pineapple GC. We have had him for about 6 months and rescued him (from our backyard, no knowledge of previous owner or age/gender to be certain). From what the vet says and based on what he looked and acted like when we found him, he was most likely 5 months - 1 year...

    Picking at skin

    My Pineapple loves to pick or nip at any blemishes, moles, freckles, etc on mine or my Dad’s skin. Is this normal? We gently say “no” and turn away, and place him down on the table if needed. We also give him bits of cardboard and wood to chew on instead, but sometimes he just insists on...

    Am I doing something wrong with training??

    Okay so its been a couple days since I last posted and I'm just losing all hope. I'll try and explain. My cockatiel Theo (barely 5 months now) was getting so good at stepping up and once in a while he would do it without millet! I've had him for about 5 maybe 6 weeks. I trained with him for...

    He's being so different!

    I'm so confused. My cockatiel Theo for the past couple days will NOT step up. I'll have the millet right there and he instead goes for my hand, nonstop biting. I back up, turn around for a couple seconds and wait, then keep trying but he'll either attack my fingers like crazy or turn his back on...

    Help with nipping cockatiel - newish

    Okay, so Theo is amazing! I've had him for like 3 maybe 4 weeks. I love him and I think we have a good relationship. He is finally talking to me sometimes and I'll imitate him and it can go on for a while, its super entertaining! Everytime I leave the room he chirps a little and I chirp back...
