    Reinsurance of unwanted behavior now that he can fly....Advice?

It took me a month or so, but the behavior went away. I would remove him, and. place him on the floor for a moment . He learned pretty...

    Hi everyone! I'm a recent addition to these forums. My flock consists of two rescued house sparrows (Keelo and Pippin) and a pineapple green cheek (Ollie). If you'd like to hear our story and meet them I posted pictures and the story of the sparrows up on Welcome Lane. I came here to this...
