    Green poop??

    Someone gifted me a green cheek parakeet yesterday, and I've noticed that its feces is green. I heard that that might mean it could be either health issues, or maybe its previous diet is mainly seed-based. Should I bring it to a vet for a check-up? If so do I need to go find an exotic animal vet...

    Male budgie parakeet flicking wings up every 3-5 seconds

    I'll try to keep this short and simple yet still as informative as I can, as I honestly have never seen something like this before. I've given up researching and calling the place I got him from (a very good place who loves their birds mind you, they just have no clue) and resorted to making a...

    Parakeets will not stop eating eachothers food!

    Hi. Going to try and make this as short as possible. I have three parakeets, two I have owned since they were babies (We will call them green and blue) and one who I took in from a friend recently (picky bird) because the other bird they had passed away. The three have continued to get along...

    Choking, hiccups or sick?

    I’m in a bit of a panic. It’s in the middle of the night and my parakeet: Lydia started making this coughing/sneezing/hiccup? Soft, squeaky sound. I turned on my flashlight to examine her and she kept acting like she was trying to cough something up. She eventually stopped and hasn’t since made...

    Parakeets brutally fighting?!

    Okay so I’ve had to place each one of my parakeets in a separate cage recently because they all started fighting to the point where they were injuring each other. First Heisinbird really beat up Saul, splitting his lower beak down the middle, bruising his eye and inflicting a bite wound on his...

    Is my cockatiel being aggressive or just overbearing?

    My parakeet always tries to go to kiss my cockatiel. But whenever he does my cockatiel seems kinda aggressive. I have seen them regurgitate to each other many times and have also seen my cockatiel making heart wings while singing to my parakeet many times. When they regurgitated to each other...

    Sudden Aggression In Parakeet.

    So as you all know my Parakeet: Heisinbird was diagnosed with Cancer. He was given only a week to live but has miraculously survived several, months later and is thriving. The vets said the tumor was still present but growing more slowly than they expected. I am grateful for every day I still...

    How to sleep with birds?

    So I have 5 birds ( 2 parakeets and 3 cockatiels) and a service dog. I want to sleep in my room with all 6 of them, but have encountered a few problems. First is my dog. He's got a very low prey drive and in theory should be fine with them, but I'm very anxious about falling asleep with them...

    Help! Birds beak is deformed I think

    Hi, I have a bird named crystal and she is about 1 years old. She is a parakeet/budgie and I’ve noticed her beak has been getting long. I put mineral blocks in the cage and cuttlebone but she isn’t using it. Her bottom beak looks to be growing to the side and there’s all sorts of crusty stuff on...

    Tea tree oil smell?

    Hi everyone! I’m usually so careful with scents, but this afternoon I mistakenly opened a bottle of tea tree oil near my parrotlet. She was within close smelling distance of the bottle (so decently strong scent levels) for maybe 5 minutes tops, after which I moved her to a different room with...

    What makes IRNs unique?

    Hello Avian Avenue! This is my first time posting. I adopted an juvenile IRN (probably f) about half a year ago. She's gotten pretty confident and has a lovely and somewhat sassy and stubborn personality. :angelic: I was wondering what experienced IRN parents think makes them different from...

    What’s he doing?

    I’ve had my parakeet for about two years now and found that he’s began to do this a few months ago. He’s been standing on a perch and tapping his beak on it. He sometimes acts like he has licked something and is tasting it. He has plenty of toys and enrichment to keep busy but he prefers to do...

    My parakeets are overweight

    Well, I just took my parakeets to the vet and they are all overweight, Jesse being the most unhealthy. I feel like such a failure; I thought I was feeding them the best food but I guess that little bit of seed in their fruit and vegetable mix was too much.

    Can Fatty Liver Disease Be Hereditary?

    Gus was just so small and exhibited no symptoms whatsoever. Necropsy said he died of fatty liver disease but also said there was a yellow spot on his liver? All poop was normal his cere was clean and so was his beak. Urates were normal, no regurgitation. He was just suddenly gone one day. He was...

    Fatty Liver Disease?

    I just got the necropsy back and they’re saying Gus died of fatty liver disease?! I feed him a Kaytee diet which is mostly fruit and vegetables but there are some seeds. How could this happen? Could he have been born diabetic or born with this at all? Was this my fault? I’m freaking out.

    Why did my baby budgie suddenly die?

    On Friday morning, I found one of my parakeets, Gustavo, dead at the bottom of the cage with no signs of trauma. His feet were clinging to the cage bars and his head was tilted to one side. I am having a necropsy preformed and I have scheduled a checkup for the other parakeets just in case he...

    Mealtimes for chop

    I've been feeding my budgies (2) bird chop in the morning and afternoon (along with giving them pellets in their food bowl and seeds as a treat). This is my first time as a bird owner and I'm just wondering, what time/ how many times should I feed my birds chop in a day? Should I continue...
