    Pictures Bird baby looks to ah e a bruise

    Hello, So I noticed three days ago while trimming my boys nails that he has a bruise on his foot. I searched his cage for anything that could possibly be irritating him. I noticed the new wooden bridge I placed in there for added stimulation was pretty tore up so I removed it since the sharp...

    Long time animal lover, first time wanting a bird(lots of questions!)

    Hello everyone! I’ve had many different kinds of pets; cats, a dog, different rodents, reptiles, fish, amphibians, a pig, and more. Never a bird. Now is the time! I’ve been addicted to watching those adorable YouTube videos of cute and funny birds and the more I watch the more I want to have...

    Best new bird to go with a male Tiel?

    Hi! I've made a couple posts here about my Tiel named Sam, and I'm thinking of getting him a brother later this year! I've heard a lot of different things about which breeds and sexes of breeds are best for a male Cockatiel, but thought I'd ask here as well. He's quite friendly, has had some...

    What noises are my budgies making?

    Hey folks, I'm new to the forum and to keeping birds in general, and I'm interested what my sound my budgie is making. I don't have video of it, but one of my friends recorded it when we were in a middle of a conversation over discord. Info: My bird is 11-ish weeks old Gender: I don't know...

    I've gotten my budgie, Navi, about two weeks ago, and I've started taming him. He goes onto my finger, but only if I put it close to his belly. And when that happens, he puts one foot on my finger until he steps up with the other (most of the time). I'm wondering what this is about. And another...

    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...

    Sun Conure questions

    This past Sunday, my Sun conure, Frankie, tragically passed away. She always seemed perfectly healthy, up until Monday, April 17. She was very lethargic and within an hour of becoming this way she seemed like she would not make it to the vet before passing. Thankfully she did, and they gave her...

    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.

    Do budgies have to be in pairs?

    I am getting a parakeet from the shelter and she is alone. I was wondering if I would need to get another parakeet from the store to accompany her? Is it a necessity or not?

    I'm getting a parakeet

    What are some things I should know. I would like to educate myself before I get my pet so I can best take care of it.

    Hey everyone! Me again, just saw R.R on the bottom of the group cage, helped him back in the nest of course, his feathers still haven’t fully grown in yet.

    Ringneck Doves

    I've, very recently, started looking into doves as companion birds, specifically ringnecks. They seem to be, so far, a much better option for my family and my future. I've been looking around for information and I can't find much, or at least not as much, information as there is on more common...

    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...

    Some Taming Questions

    I've had my first bird for a week now. She's 3 months old and I purchased her from a breeder. So far she's fine with me putting my hands in the cage, giving her treats, and sitting on my finger. Yesterday I opened the cage door and she happily ran over to me. We've also been practicing stepping...
