    How to stop budgies/cockatiel from landing in a specific place?

    This is kind of a weird situation and not really safety, but I wasn't sure if it would fit in behavior either... My birds (2 budgies and 1 cockatiel) live in my small birdproofed room, where my bed is across from the bird cages. Their food gets EVERYWHERE in my room, including on my bed because...

    Is this poop normal?

    Hello. I was hoping to ask if you guys could help me figure out my cockatiels poop. I’ve been worried about her to bits ever since my other cockatiel died almost 3 weeks ago.

    African grey accidentally ate his own feces?

    Hi, I know it’s probably not anything to worry about but im just making sure. My 4 year old African grey accidentally stepped in his own poo while out of his cage. He does not let me clean his feet, so I gave him water to rinse off in. While I was getting the water, I saw him clean a piece of...

    Budgie poop help

    Hi, so my budgie has had dirty vent on and off for almost as long as I’ve had him. It’s something I’ve always been concerned about, so I took him to two different vets and they’ve said that he was fine. One even did a fecal exam and the results came out clean. But his poop is extremely watery...

    Poop question!

    Hi, I have a 11 weeks cinnamon conure, got him at 7 weeks and have noticed since the start that he’s really good at holding his poop. I’m not encouraging this behaviour. Recently he’s been unwilling to poop in his cage, possibly for cleaniness reasons, he would wait until he comes out and does...

    Concerned about my birds poop

    Is this a normal dropping? We rescued a goffins cockatoo 6 months ago. We got her switched to a pellet and chop diet, this is her second poop that’s more white and runny like this. Should I be worried?
