    Gathering information

    So, here's how things are. I've had a parrot before, an male Cockatiel named MooShu. Got him from a pet-shop and he came with a virus. He died after 1 month of me taking care of him. Medicine and vets just couldn't save him. Now, I want to get an Thai rose-ringed parakeet, or as it's called...

    cheap play gym

    I'm looking for a cheap play gym to put on top of my birds cage. When I got her she felt safe going on the top of the cage it seems to be her favorite place. I'm wondering if anyone knows some play gyms that are at a reasonable price so I can put them on top of her cage.

    My bird hitting her bell

    I've noticed that when my bird plays with her bell she plays with it rather aggressively, is that normal? She will slam her beak into it and it seems like she's almost attacking it. It looks like she keeps going back and forth from playing with it to fighting with it.

    Coop Cup Question!

    Has anyone used these cups before? A&E Cage Company Bolt-On Coop Cup 20 oz | DrsFosterSmith.com? I saw them and thought they might be cool to try, but I wasn't sure how the coating is. I'm having a hard time finding any more info online either, so figured I would ask here. :)

    First Molt (?)

    Hello again guys! I just wanted to ask a question about molting, and the signs that you have witnessed personally as canary owners. As some of you may have read in my previous thread, my canary Peeps was showing some strange behaviors, but they were a bit difficult to read since they coincided...

    Small update and question.

    Hey Guys, it’s me again. As I once said in one of my most recent posts, I had the idea to move the baby parakeets to another cage(yes thee are two of them now.), I still feel rather bad for even suggesting taking them away from their flock, but I have made some improvements to the idea. As I...

    Pictures Soft section of beak?

    Hello, I've recently noticed that part of my macaw's, Ollie, beak appears to be soft in an area. It is a small section on her upper beak along the bottom edge, on both sides. I was wondering if this was normal, maybe her beak is growing? When I touch it she doesn't react, no pain or anything...

    GCC: Long-Term Commitment

    So recently I've been interested in getting a green cheek conure (still have a lot of research to do) but something that worries me is the long-term commitment. I currently have the time, money and commitment needed to take care of one but whether or not I will in the future is another thing...

    Question: Baby half moon conure

    Hello everyone, I have a question - my 8 week old half moon conure sounds like a cat mewing - when he is falling asleep. Is this a typical sound from a conure? Thanks!

    I mostly just made this account so I could ask this question; could I bring my cockatiel on my bike? I have an aviator harness and a bike basket for my dog, are there any safety hazards? I mean obviously I could crash my bike, but that comes with taking your dog in it too.

    What is Normal VS Abnormal Quaker Behavior?

    I've only had my quaker for about 2 weeks now and I'm worrying about everything. I just wanted to know other parrot owners experiences on things that are and aren't normal for Quakers. I guess it would just be nice to have some concerning behaviors/signs that I should look out for. Any advice on...

    Hello everyone! I'm not yet a bird owner but I'm very seriously considering it and collecting all the research I can on the subject. The species I'm most seriously considering are budgies, finches, and--most seriously of all--ringneck doves. I'm looking at different breeder option but I have...

    Safest Bird Bowls & Safest Cleaning Methods?

    I've read that plastic can be unsafe because it's harder to clean away bacteria, and can be harmful as it deteriorates faster (mine chew them), so I've switched to stainless steel bowls, but do still have one or two newer plastic bowls I still use. I would like to know the safest bowls I should...

    New Bird, New Species - need some advice please!

    Hey guys... Ok, so I am about ready to bring Oliver home (a brand new baby Timneh African Grey), and although they may seem stupid, I have some quick general questions. So right now we only have one parrot, Emma, and she is an Eclectus, so her diet is very specific. No seeds, no nuts, no millet...
