    Leaving bird home for vacation. Advice?

    Some context: It's a 5.5 year old cockatiel, been with us for the majority of its life. From what I know it only likes to be outside of the cage and prefers eating and drinking if out of the cage. We only use the cage for vet visits. On the 21st (figured I'd look for answers in advance), we will...

    Help! Really want a conure but there's a problem

    At first I was allowed to have a conure, but then my parents said no because of traveling. We have two dogs and a pair of budgies. My dad said we won't be able to travel with another bird. How do you travel with many pets?? Please help, I'm very far from where I can get a conure and we are going...

    Parrot in College? Travel?

    Hi all, I posted before regarding getting a bird for college; I was given very good advice to rather wait until I was in college or after graduation - so I am currently still bird-free. I know more about my schedule and the college policy on pets, etc. - it's very pet friendly and we may bring...

    Cockatiel Droppings?

    Hey! So I just got this male cockatiel yesterday. He is about 4-5 years old. I was curious, just to get some other people's opinions, do his droppings look normal to everyone? He did just come from a 2 and a half hour drive yesterday. Thanks!

    Air Travel or Car?

    Right now I'm in a position where I will be moving to another state. I'm deciding whether it will be less stressful for a 40+ hour drive to my new location that would take maybe 5 days or a 7-8 hour flight. I have seen pros and cons to this in a lot of areas but main cons I have seen to flying...

    Christmas Advice, please!

    Hello fellow bird lovers, My conure is very attached to me, and loves my husband (about half as much ). She has a giant cage and loves being in there, but we have plans to go out of town from the 24th through to the evening of the 26th. Should we leave her at home in her cage? Or should we...

    Help to get a rescued African Grey out of China?

    I found an African Grey parrot outside in some trees in Shenzhen, China almost a year ago. It has a closed leg band with letters and numbers, which apparently they do not do in China. And she (I think it's a she) said "hello" in English. I assume she was brought in by a foreign family and either...

    Hi everyone, I have a 3 y/o green-cheek and I was wondering if you guys had any advice on what to do about travelling. I have no one to look after him, and am extremely paranoid about leaving him with a boarding place. He his perfectly healthy and never interacted with other birds, so I don't...
