    Air Purifiers!

    Me and little Genji just got our first Air Purifier, for the obvious bird keeper reasons, as well as for the upcoming wildfire season. I'm loving it so far, we got a Honeywell HP100 :) I'm curious, what do ya'll usually do in terms of settings and when you turn it on? Ours has a quiet...

    Afivce or Opinions on my cockatiel

    Hi guys, Was hoping to get some advice and opinions on my cockatiel. Early this year we found a female lutino cockatiel on our property. We were unable to find the original owners, and have since decided to keep her. She bonded to me early on and has learnt to recognise my v8 and will flock...

    Parrotlet v. Lovebird

    In the near future I intend on getting a parrotlet and/or a peach-faced lovebird. I worked with birds for a living at one time, and I've done extensive research on both pocket parrots, but rather than look at "facts" it would be helpful to get some opinions. This is the information I have...

    How do you feel about doing this when birds are nesting?

    Hi all! I hope everyone's doing well. Recently little Pablo has taken to using her food dish as a nest. I was reading some articles online about discouraging nesting/mating behaviour by taking away nest stimulants and replacing the food dishes with some she can't sit in. Maybe I am too...

Should I get her a...

    Idea for Toys/Play Area. Would this Work?

    I would love to spoil my cockatiel, whenever I get the money to allow me to do so. I've spent some time thinking about what I would want to do, and I want to get some opinions to see if it's a good idea, would be safe, etc. I'm wanting to convert a cat tree into a playground for my tiel. I...

    Sun conure and a new conure

    Hello, I have a male sun conure. I’m planing on getting a second conure. I’m just not sure if it’s best to get a different species. I want a turquoise green cheek. Do you think this would be okay with my sun conure? I don’t want to breed them but if for some reason it happens I’ve read their...

    Question about parrots as pets

    Hi, I'm new here! So I live in WA, and we have parrots here called 28 parrots (or the Australian Ring neck). I am currently looking after a 28 at home, and i have been since she was about 2 weeks from leaving the nest. I was given her from someone who found her fallen out of the nest and being...

    Parrot For Student??

    Hi all, I'm interested in getting a Parrot soon and I'd like all your suggestions! :) I have owned Parrots before, but unfortunately had to give them up when I moved here (to Ireland) from South Africa. I had a Congo African Grey (female) and Sun Conure (male). I lived in a freestanding...

    Harrison's reviews

    What is everyone's opinion about Harrison's organic bird food? Which would you experienced macaw owners suggest? Quality and price opinions? Do you notice any visible changes in your macaws? Why do vets recommend it? What are the down sides, if any? What about Harrison's treats...
