    Kirkland unsalted nut mix safe?

    Hello, How you're well! I have been snacking on a nut mix I got at Costco and I wonder if it would be okay to share with my bird... It is Kirkland unsalted nut mix. They are cooked. The ingredients are: cashew, almonds, Brazil nuts, pecans, macadamia nuts, peanut oil. Thank you!

I wouldn’t be keeping these in the same room Mac has his cage, more along the lines of possibly one in...

    No aerosols near budgies, but what about in the same house?

    I am considering adopting a budgie. I know I cannot use any air pollutants (candles, Teflon, incense, air fresheners, etc.) around a bird. But every time I search for info, sources just say "don't use near birds." I find this unhelpful; what is considered "near" the bird? I do not live in a...

    Thinking about purchasing a conure. Currently own one budgie. Need help deciding

    I'm considering getting a conure, I already have a budgie that is almost completely trained. Should i get a conure after 100% training the budgie?? If so which ones and how should i space the cages apart so neither of them get hurt. I would only let one out at a time of course. Is this safe?
