    Kinda Desperate Regards to new bird

    Hi, got a young (3m old) male Senegal Parrot a few weeks ago, having a bit of a struggle, overall the bird is super social but it makes it difficult to let it out and handle him, as he tends to bite quite hard when he sees naked fingers and any skin (includes neck, ears, etc). Been looking...

    Rockstar rocking a mohawk

    I woke up, got all Rockys stuff in order... then I heard a huge splash! Turn around and he is dancing in his waterbowl! What a dirty bird! He is molting so I bet that bath felt very nice! He'll be looking brand new after he dries a little.

    Is my Senegal parrot happy?

    Hello all :) My family got a Senegal parrot two months ago. First when we got him he was very energetic or nervous I cannot tell, he was yelling all day and playing with toys… Well he was very very active. Suddenly one month ago he started to be very quiet. Usually the morning he is alone...

    Parent-raised Poicephalus

    Hey, guys! I'm doing research on different Poicephalus species as I'm interested in getting two parent-raised ones in the future. I'm still not sure which species but so far I'm leaning towards Meyer's or Senegals. They're quite hard to come by in my country so I may have to order them through a...

    Help - It this normal? (Loss of Appetite from Wing-Trim)

    Loss of Appetite from Wing-Trim ??!!?! After a long time of debating pros & cons of flighted feathers vs. trimmed wings, I trimmed my Senegal parrot’s wings. She was used to being able to fly anywhere she wanted. I made this choice because I moved to a new studio apartment that is very small &...

    Not liking head scritches?

    Does anyone else have a weirdo kid who doesn’t like them? I’m fostering a nine year old Senegal and while he lets me touch and scratch his head (and pick him up, flip him over, etc) he doesn’t seem to enjoy head scratches. I think he’s confused as to why I try to give them to him All the other...

    Looks like she’s leaving me for my husband :(

    One of my Senegals has been acting weird for a few days. She’s been nippy, then outright biting me, and today she’s yelling and lounging at me :( I was very confused since I’ve had her for over four months and she’s been super sweet to me the whole time. So I had an idea.... I asked my husband...

    Smelly poops

    Preface - I had a Meyers parrot (rip baby) in his twenties who had smelly poops. The vet tested him and concluded that his arthritis was making it painful to poop, so he held it in longer, hence letting bacteria grow more and causing the bad smell. Now I have two young Senegals with smelly...

    College Senegal

    Hi Everyone, I'm a perspective bird parent (Feel that a Senegal would be a good fit) and wanted to talk to some experienced keepers. I'm going to be going to college soon and was thinking that a senegal might be a good fit for me as I start my life journey. A little about myself: I am an...

    Pumpkin is here!

    Picked up Pumpkin yesterday! He and Lily are “talking” with their highest pitched ear piercing noises, of course lol. But Pumpkin already ate a bit of pellets, apples, and grapes! AND I was honored today with head scratches and step ups!!!

    Can you tell how old he is?

    I’m meeting a Senegal cutie this weekend for possible adoption. The current owner said that he got the bird from a lady and the bird never took to him and prefers women. He said that the bird is about 5 years old and I was wondering if people can tell Senegal’s age based on photos. I know it’s...
