    Clicker training and treats?

    Hi there! I live with my 2 year old feathered baby, a Congo African Grey. He has such personality, but I have a difficult time getting him to step up. I want to teach him how to step up on a stick before my hand like my GCC. I’ve bought a clicker already and I have a few questions: Do I need to...

    I need some parrot experts, I'm having a bit of an issue with my bonded budgies. I have 3 pairs and 2/3 won't mate, they'll preen, feed, sit together, scratch heads, sing, etc. They live in the regular breeding cage, 2 perches, breeding box and the other necessities they need. They've bred...

    My poor little baby

    I decided to call this very nice lady that goes to your house and grooms your birdies because Winnie hasn’t been groomed for a while and I only used to do nails but now I did beak too because his was way too sharp. Of course I didn’t touch my baby’s wings because I love seeing him fly :heart...

    My newly adopted Indian ringneck has feather loss and very thin quill

At the start we kept him in his cage...

    Let me in on your relationship with Bonded Birds

    I think we are all aware that, if possible, the most fair way to keep a parrot is with a partner due to their high social needs and biological programming to feel the need to have their flock nearby at all times. We of course cannot accommodate between working, spending time with our loved ones...
