    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...

    bronze winged pionus

    Hi, I’ve been wanting a bronze winged pionus for a while now, but It’s been very hard for me to find any breeders in the U.S. I was wondering if anyone knows where I would be able to get one? I’ve also contacted this website called Samantha Parrot Store but i’m not sure how trustworthy it is...

    The playstand for my conures and pionus!

    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...

    Pictures I'm always the bearer of bad news...

    ...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...

    Ponytail = STRANGER DANGER

    I just made the mistake of going into the New World room with my hair still pinned from doing my makeup, and upon seeing me Aurélie instantly went into BEAST MODE. Beak open, feathers fluffed, tail flared, pionus strut, the whole nine yards. She had NO idea who I was. Poor little girl...

    Video Aurélie has finally decided...

    ...that my fingers are allowed to scritch! She's been so anti-touch since she was a tiny baby that I wondered whether she'd grow up to be hands-off like her older grey siblings. I didn't really mind, since not everyone likes a scritch, but just now she bent down her head, fluffed up her...

    And the first kid to wind up at the vet in 2019 isss.....

    ...Aurélie!! :wewin: Poor little Réy. This one was completely my fault, not just accident-prone weirdos getting into trouble again *coughTACOcough*. I went out for a few hours today running errands, and apparently when I shut the trouble-making fids away before I left, I didn't latch Aurélie's...

    Pictures New foraging boxes!

    Taco, Kamara and Aurélie got some new foraging boxes today! :D So far we've got lots of paper and cardboard to shred, wooden foot toys, coin sorters with nutriberries stuffed inside, and some paper cups with their favourite treats. They all seem a little bamboozled but intrigued. Taco's eyeing...

    My white-capped caique

    It's always hard to catch Réy in the act because she hates cameras, but I just managed to catch a snippet of her usual silliness. :D (Ft. Taco)
