    Sudden aggressive hormonal behaviour

    Hi, Kiwi and Luna are my two lovebirds. Kiwi is the oldest of the two and has lived most of his life in solitude not having interacted much with other birds. That is why he bonded strongly with me and when I decided to give him a new companion things started rough. They were kept in separate...

    Unsocialized Ringneck

    So I’ll be traveling for the next three weeks and so I need to decide on the best place for Yuki since I won’t be able to bring her along. She could either stay at my apartment with my sister to watch her or she could go to my parents . My sister would also be working during the day so...

    Conure Biting Issue

    My GCC is a biting fiend. He does it in a friendly manner with me but with my boyfriend he gets aggressive. Like when he took him out of the cage today without me here, he lunged straight at his fingers instead of the treat he had in his fingers. He will never lunge at me... But my boyfriend...

    Unique housing situation, can’t make a decision!

    Hey everyone! I joined the forum today to get advice as to which bird will be my next.. I had a cockatiel (Chi) until January 29, 2016 that was truly the love of my life. She was the cuddliest cockatiel I have ever known - we did everything together. It was heartbreaking when she passed away...

    Socializing my parrot

    Hi! I could use some advice. I'm getting really nervous about Val ( my RB2 ) heading into hormones - even though I'm still quite far way from the real deal ( he's only a one and a half). He's already showing aggression to people that aren't me ( and me, when I don't do what he wants) . He got...

    Wanting cage-mate for Green Cheek. Advice?

    Okay, so I have a Green Cheek Conure (cinnamon variety) and he's about a year old. We wanted to get him a cage mate, but there are a few problems. We aren't entirely sure about his sex.

    Proper Socialization

    Hello everyone, I'm bringing home a baby Meyers in a few weeks and I'm sure I'll have lots of posts before long, but here's my first question: what does "proper socialization" look like? Is it exposing to lots of different things, places, situations, and people with positive reinforcement? I...
