    Concerned about over regurgitation and possible causes.

    Hi everyone. I'm hoping to find some answer on how to help my 12 year old Sun Conure, Mango. He has always over-regurgitate, in my opinion anyways, since he was about 9 which is when my other Conure Claire started laying eggs ( she was also about 9 so it was a surprise to us). It would be on and...

    Urgent Overnight stress plucking

    Hey everyone. Sprout (my 1 year cinnamon green-cheek conure) was fine last night but when I got him this morning, I found this. We've had a mouse issue lately (working on it), and we've been finding droppings in Sprout's food. We've tried moving his food bowl to different areas in his cage...

    Flytrap mishap + oil = stressed tiel

    Last night, my baby (8 month old tiel) flew from my should to the dining table and flew to the kitchen counter where the flytrap was laid. Imagine the horror from both of us, I immediately held him to avoid him sticking any other part (like his head) in an attempt to free himself. I didn't know...

    Do birds get stressed when you're sick?

    I got a juvenile cockatiel about three weeks ago (currently about five months old). As she's gotten more comfortable here she's started chirping little tunes, mostly of a morning when she gets her breakfast. Now, the point of the matter is that my back went out a couple of days ago so I've been...

    Is this feather loss normal?

    My Green cheek conure has been losing a lot of feathers lately, mostly on his belly, wing, and back, I don’t know if this is how they molt or if he’s strany way. I want to know if this is normal, I’m pretty worried for him

    My CAG is a plucker

    I adopted my CAG some months ago, he's a plucker. He had plucked his back, neck, and front. He now has fluff coming back out, but the problem is that he will pluck it. We're currently working on trying to fix his sleep schedule and diet (he is a VERY picky eater). Do products like Avian Calm and...

    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 &...

    Suggestions for introducing new/changed things?

    Hello everyone! I recently changed my parrots featherbrite bulb to the new led model! The bulb normally goes into a standing lamp with a reading lamp attached and set up next to his cage with the reading lamp hovering just above his cage. I had to use a new lampshade to accommodate for the size...

    Boyfriend’s Meyers parrot is driving me insane.

    This is quite long and ranty, so I apologize. I’m just at my wit’s end here. His name is Fred and my boyfriend thinks he’s about 7 or 8 (got him from a pet store about 5 or 6 years ago so he’s not completely sure). My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year and a half, and we haven’t...

    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...

    Bird in College? Advice Please...

    Hello! My name is Olivia and I've been excited to get a bird for as long as I can remember. My father and grandfather were both bird-loving veterinarians so I have a cage at my disposal for no cost, and I've done my hours and hours of research on care and diet and all. Decided I'm looking for...

    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...

    Nail clipping stress

    Hey guys, It's coming up to that time again when Toki and Pickles need their claws trimmed. I've only had to do it once before, and although they were a little upset (they do get 'towelled' with an old T-shirt as they hate being held) it went ok. I tried to do it again the other day, and not...

    Urgent Acting strange

    Sunflower (a 3mo GCC) had been a little off today. She seems a extra clumsy this afternoon (she is normally an adorable klutz). Her poos have also been extra watery. They look normal except for the excess water. She also seems to be angry with my husband. He went to work today for the first time...

    How to calm him down

    My little parakeet Finch got out of the cage today, and no. I didn't let him out, he flew out in panic. I think I startled him or something, I opened one of the big doors in the parakeet's cage (which I do a lot), and he was in the nest, which was a new one for me because once he was out of the...

    Bird body language

    So I've read so much about conures. I've read magazines, text books, Google, just about anything I can get my hands on. But it still doesn't prepare you for all the language of a conure! My husband and I were in disagreement. We recently had a new person hold my bird, and I've never seen my...

    How long can I leave my green cheek alone?

    I'm considering getting a part time job but it's very likely that my husband and I will be at work at the same time, leaving our green cheek by herself for a few hours each day. I usually let her out and interact with her all day. Can I leave her alone when I'm at work? I don't want to stress her.
