    White capped pionus beak chipping?

    Good afternoon everyone! I hope you all are having a great start to the Spring season. I was hoping to get the community's input on my pionus, Jiminy, and the condition of his beak. I've noticed a little wear on his beak this week, moreso than it's ever been. I've attached a photograph for...

    Baby pionus sometimes bites hard. Advice?

    Good afternoon everyone, I am a recent and proud owner of a white capped pionus baby named Jiminy. He is about 7-8 months old and is overall a wonderful companion. We love him deeply! Recently, he has started to get nippier than usual. He bit my partner in the lip unexpectedly about a month...

    Which Birds are Social Birds?

    Pionus is such a cool species to me and i feel like they are kind of a lost treasure to the bird world as not many people own them but as with any bird they can have their draw backs. Recently one of these draw backs was drawn to my attention. Pionus parrots tend to bond to one person rather...

    Is Persian Violet a safe houseplant?

    I have been given a Persian Violet houseplant, also known as Exacum. I know that African violets are safe for Parrots so I am assuming that a Persian Violet is probably safe also but don't know for sure. Does anyone know? Thanks. I have a Maximillian Pionus who has never shown any interest...

    Red-bellied parrot and maximilian pionus

    These birds have been my family for 14 and 12 years respectively. Please, do not send me any unkind messages. This is the hardest decision I have ever had to make. I promised them a lifetime and am thoroughly heartsick to break that promise, but I have looked at the situation from every angle...

    Baby Pionus Tips?

    Hello :) This is my first time posting anything on here but I have been lurking around the forums for a while now. After months and months of research and consideration, it's very possible that I will be bringing home a newly weened baby White Capped Pionus in a few weeks. Just curious if...

    Pionus hasn't left cage

    I recently adopted a 7 year old blue-headed pionus. It's been a week and he hasn't left his cage once despite the cage door being open all day. I have put his bowls just outside of his cage so he can reach them from within the cage while encouraging him to leave the cage, I try to see if I can...

    How dusty are Blueheaded Pionus Parrots?

    This went completely under my radar during research but I just heard that some people have dusty pionus parrots? I didn't even realize any South American parrots could be dusty as I was informed dust was only an old world parrot issue. I was wondering how dusty can the blue-headed pionus be? I...

    Baby Maximilian pionus showing beginnings of jealousy/aggression to my partner

    Hello everyone! Two weeks ago I brought home an approx. 12 week old Maximilian pionus, Freddie. Her breeder did a wonderful job at raising her, she was weaned naturally and she settled in remarkably well with both me and my partner since coming home. She's been as sweet as can be with both of...

    Parrot in College? Travel?

    Hi all, I posted before regarding getting a bird for college; I was given very good advice to rather wait until I was in college or after graduation - so I am currently still bird-free. I know more about my schedule and the college policy on pets, etc. - it's very pet friendly and we may bring...

    Here is my playstand for my conures and pionus! My macaw has flying access to the stand, so I try to make sure there is something on it for her as well. My pionus and conures really enjoy their playstand as they spend the majority of their day time on it or on me. to prevent ‘bubble feet’ I...

    New Member! I’d like to Introduce my Pionus!

    I have a Male White Capped Pionus! The only bird I have that I didn’t name. He had 6 homes before he came to me. He is a ball of fire, and only ever is nice to me (if I change my appearance, he is a ball of fire to me until he gets used to it). He had what me and my vet refer to as ‘double...

    Felicia and her Heart

    I posted last week in candlelight lane, but this is where I feel this belongs. A lot has happened since I last visited the forum, I've moved into my own house and Felicia and I have continued to grow our bond. Felicia is a Craigslist bird. I'm reasonably certain everything is documented on...

    Hello!

    Hello everyone! My name is Kirsty and I am definitely a bird lover. I have had smaller birds all my life, but recently my husband and I have decided to adopt a medium sized bird. We have put a deposit down on an adorable dusky pionus, but I am feeling torn between him and a super sweet Amazon. I...

    ...so I figured it was high time to bring on the good news! :D The lunacy is nigh unending in this crazy zoo of a household, but as of this very moment, things are looking super high. My bully breed mix, who has been suffering with one illness or another since she was rescued from the streets...
