I should also add she’s in the process of molting and honestly seems the same as she was before. She’s preening and eating seeds. I’ve...

    Budgies asleep during the day? Normal or Unique Personality?

    Hello, its been about 3 months now since I got my budgies. They are still young. However, I have noticed my budgies in general aren't as active/talkative as the ones I normally see at pet stores/ on videos. My budgies seem to like to sleep alot during the day, and rarely make any noise...

    Sleepy Bird and Droppings

    First of all SORRY FOR THE SPAM We haven't kept birds for a long while and when we did there wasn't anyone to do a whole lot of research so they unfortunately would pass before their time. So with the two birds we have now I may be a little paranoid but I want to make sure my babies are okay...

    Can my parrot catch the flu?

    Just went to the doctors and was tested for the flu. It came back positive for influenza A. I’ve read online that birds are not succeptible to colds or flus so long as the infection is not bacterial. I am confused though because I’ve also read that Influenza A is the avian flu and can infect...

    General Questions & Concerns

    So, I have had a pet budgerigar for at least 4 months now and about a week ago I had a fever, I eliminated much of the chance of coughing or sneezing near the bird, as I moved it away from the spot it usually was. I've noticed this for a bit but my budgie has a little blue faded wave on her...

    Crow with disease??

    Hi all. I'm not sure if this is the right place/website to post this, but during one of my beach walks at the Sunshine Coast QLD, I came across a very sickly looking crow. It was very large and ruffled with grow like things on its face forcing one of its eyes closed and its feet were...

    Cozzi is having a hard time breathing

    Cozzi is my 12 year old cockatiel. Over the course of the past month, he has been doing a lot of sneezing, and open beak breathing. He has always been active, but is not playing anymore and he becomes easily exerted. His diet still seems good, and he eats well. Once I noticed him having symptoms...

    Squeaking before pooing and stretching

    Hello everyone! Recently I became the proud new owner of a beautiful green cheek conure, Manny. Manny is fully fledged but is still very much a baby. He eats on his own, knows how to step up and is a wild man for the most part. The only other bird I’ve had is a cockatiel. With my tiel I know...

    Urgent (Non-urgent) Wake up, Kamara!

    This could be my hypervigilant lunacy at work (again), but I'm starting to get really anxious about how much time Kamara spends sleeping every day. She snoozes soundly through the night without issue, so I wouldn't think that she's trying to make up for lack of sleep, but she doesn't seem...

    An unfortunate event. (Help)

    Hello all. I am sad to say that Palmer has gotten into an accident, but happy to say that he is alive and kicking.

    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...

    Is he ok?

    Hi guys, so Little Blue here is a little fluffed up, especially at morning and at night. I read that this could be a sign of him being sick, but everything else is fine. He is just as active, sings as usual, appetite is good, maybe even better than before. Grooming is fine, and he also grooms...
