    Another question

    Should I keep my bird in a dimmer room where there isn’t a lot of light? I heard a lot of light can cause growth of sexual organs and my room is a lot dimmer than the bonus room that he is in currently.:thinking::sad14:

    Cockatiel sexually frustrated?

    Hi everyone, i have 2 cockatiels, both male, there is one that is always more active and curious and the other is more calm and gentle.

    Newly Adopted Blue Front UnGODLY sexual towards me

    Frisky Behavior Question

    The rare times Slade masturbates when he finishes he poops also. Is this normal? None of my other birds do it till they're finished so it struck me as odd. He also makes the weirdest sounds :lol2: but I figured those are more than likely normal.

    Hi all, Brand new here. My son inherited 2 lovebirds, apparently 2 males. They are "young" but mature (over a year old) and are very healthy. They are well bonded, get along, and do all things a couple should do. But I want to check in on this. I understand that 2 males can bond and even...

    Bird is starting to pluck

    So I bought a nice harness about 3 days ago and started harness training my lovebird, Lily. She seemed to be responding well enough, even though she seemed really uncomfortable with it, we were making good progress so I thought it was fine. She was starting to put her head through the hole...

    Male or female tiel? Rubbing vent on finger!

    I got my cockatiel, Nibbler, from a breeder about a year or so ago. The breeder originally told us it was a male, but then checked again by feeling the vent and said she was a girl. Today we witnessed our birdie rubbing the vent against my fiance's finger for the first time. I have been...
