    What index do you use to determine if the air quality is safe for your feathered friend?

    The AQI and AQHI use different statistics to determine the air quality of the local area, so they often have different results. For example, Canada uses the AQHI to determine air quality, and for my area today its at a 2/10 (low), which is determined as safe for all groups But IQair, a...

    Kaeya won’t leave room.

    Hi Everyone, first time poster here! I have a cute female budgie named Kaeya, she’s a solo bird because either my mom or I am always home - so she’s never really alone. She has her own room connected to the living room, kitchen, and dining room; so she hears us for the majority of the day...

    Companion(s) for parrotlet?

    Hi all! I'm new here so I hope I'm doing this right. Super excited to be here!!! TL;DR should I get another bird for my parrotlet? If so, budgies or another parrotlet? I have one male parrotlet (Meep Morp, or Meep) he's 3 years old and is handfed. He's a precious little boy, and is one of the...

    Question About Potted Plants?

    Hello! I recently ordered a giant walk-in cage for my Budgies, and was fiddling around with the idea of perhaps putting a potted plant within it. (Like a really tiny tree or bush.) Do you think this would be too risky to do? I’ve never tried anything like that before. I know some plants are...

    Bells: yes or no?

    Hi everyone! I see so many posts and videos and webpages about how great bells are for birds, but then I see the horror stories of birds’ beaks, feet, etc getting caught in them. So my question is… are bells bad or good? Is there a more complicated answer? Thanks!

    Macaw as a first bird

    Hi everyone! I know most people say that it's a bad idea to get a macaw as a first bird but they're my dream pet. I've thought about getting an IRN or GCC first because they're better for beginners but I'm worried that I wouldn't love it as much once I get a macaw or I won't be able to care for...

    Fun fact and a question

    Did you know that you can give a parrot a (fully cooked) hard boiled egg as an occasional treat. Also, my amazon parrot, Paco never wants to eat millet. Is this because millet is only for smaller birds?

    What kind of bird is this?

    Okay so i saw this bird and i’m not looking to get one, but it was just really beautiful to me and the way it was acting has just kept it on my mind. I don’t know all the different bird kinds and species but i’m pretty sure someone on here will know what bird this is?

    How smart?

    You know how cockatoos have the intelligence of a five year old human. What would you compare a green cheek to? With my girly, I'd say has the intelligence of a one or two year old with the emotional intelligence of a four year old. To be honest the only reason I'm asking this question is so I...

    Hi, I have a question

    So, I was thinking of getting a new Cockatiel and I found a cage that's 86 cm in height, 47,5 in width and 47,5 in length. Will that be okay for my Cockatiel?

    Pictures Little bald spot above beak

    Hi; I have a 4 month old Green Cheek Conure who has a small bald spot on her head. She's moulting heavily & it looks like there's pin feathers just starting to grow; is this something I should be worried about? She hasn't had any behavioral changes & I haven't changed her diet of 2/3rds pellets...

    Conures fighting

    Hi, I have two conures and I had a question. So when either one conure takes a shower or both do, they start arguing and fighting when they are together. They tackle each other and have loud voices. I’ve searched a bunch but have not found anything. Is it something with their appearance? Smell...

    Is it feather plucking and should I be concerned?

    Hii my pet, an baby Indian ringneck (he’s almost 4 months now) has been preening quite a lot and in the last 4-5 days he has been losing quite a lot of feathers (about 6 small feathers a day), there’s no bald spots or blood, he’s been active and acting as he always does, is this feather plucking...

    Aren't cockatiels supposed to be monogamic?

    I have four cockatiels, Their names are Grey, pearl wild and harlequin. Grey and pearl were hand fed and are docile, but recently my dad bought other two wild and harlequin. Harlequin is a young pies cockatiel and is in the taming process and wild, well the name says all, he likes to sing with...

    Best types of wood and rope for bird toys?

    So recently I've been working on re-making my birds favorite toy that has been discontinued in every store I've looked at and I'm trying to figure out what wood types would be best to use. I'll include an image of the toy that I'm recreating so you can all get a better idea of what it looks like...

    Restless conure

    It’s my first time housing a GCC and I just recently brought him home. It’s been about 3 days and I notice that every day once it’s starts to get dark out he starts getting very restless in his cage. He will pace around and scream and won’t sit still until I take him out. He’s either pacing or...
