    Flying with by Fids (and terrified)

    Hello everyone! After deciding to rescue two IRN's, I made the commitment of becoming their lifelong guardians. I am now moving from Oman (in the Middle East) back to my home country of Canada. It is not an option for me to give them to another family. I am doing everything I can to prepare...

    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 to other humans – is it possible?

    Hi, I need help! I rescued a 13 year old Quaker with a plucking and self-mutilating problem, which I have gotten under control, mostly because I work at home and can be around him most of the time and collar him when I’m out, usually for short periods. He still has issues, and the one that’s...

    Minimizing Carsickness

    Hi all! I have a bit of a recurring struggle -- I'm in college with my bird, and it's about an hour and forty five minutes' car ride away from home. In past rides, I've noticed him getting carsick; throughout the ride he's usually chirping along and talking with me or the music and seems fine...
