    My tips for taming and bonding with a shy bird

    Many people ask about how to tame and bond with their bird, and I don’t blame them. Bonding with your bird can be hard sometimes. Some birds love you in a snap, while others decide that because you sneezed you must start your relationship all over again. This can happen in particular with...

    Never been out of a cage, need advice

    I just got my first bird three days ago from a privately owned pet store. He's a cockatiel that's just over a year old and I named him Winston. He is an absolute sweetheart and took to me immediately. Within the first 10 minutes of me putting him in his flight cage, he was already eating and...

    How to get Indian ring neck to trust me

    I got a new bird and have been trying to get their trust. Everytime I go near the cage or open the door to get the water and food bowls out the bird gets scared and starts flying inside of the cage like crazy.

    Is my budgie scared of the dark?

    Hi, my three month old budgie Taro keeps making these weird chattering noises whenever it's time for bed, I've heard her make the noise before when playing but I don't know if it means different things? If she is afraid of the dark do I keep a small light on? Cause I'm used to sleeping in...

    New lovebird doesn't trust me yet, but loves my head

    So I've just brought home a new peach-faced lovebird named Pokka yesterday, and he is still very scared of me, but loves to be let out of his cage. Pokka loves flying around my room when I'm just working, but he doesn't trust me in general yet, however, he seems to love calmly sitting on my...

    Trust Issues (Indian Ringneck)

    I purchased an Indian Ringneck (6 months old) around 4 days ago and has been in its cage since. Whenever I try to get really close to the cage it starts to frantically fly side to side and also does the same when I try to change its feed. It isn't tame so would like for it to gain some trust in...

    Terrified sun conure

    I just adopted a new sun conure about a month ago, she’s about two years old, and she was a return and the store owner didn’t say anything other than that. He told me she’d be hard to get out of her cage but after she’d get out she loves to cuddle and step-up and whatever. When I brought her...

    Noisy, scary cage!

    I just got a new bird cage for my budgie, Tro! However, it has those metal grate floors that can be pulled out to clean, so it does make rattling sounds when something lands on it. Tro was exploring the cage just now (mind, he's already PRETTY skeptical of this new, big cage that made a LOT of...

    Help with taming

    My father got a pair of peach faced lovebirds a few months back. He got them on a whim because he wanted to surprise my mother with a gift. Unfortunately, neither of them knew how to properly care for birds at that moment, and neither did I. Heck, we even thought they were conures for the...
