    Hey! Been a while since I've been here. I'm going to be visiting my dad in another country for a month, and will be leaving my lovie with my mother and a friend.

    Sudden aggression

    Hello :) My sun conure, Skyler, is 4 months old and has been biting me. The bites used to seem like they were just playful and happened when he was too excited or when climbing all over me and he needed grip. Whenever he bites, I calmly but firmly tell him “no biting” and put him away for a...

    Hey all I have a crimson belly Conure who I’ve had since he was 3 months old, and he’s been with me for about a year and a half.

    Going on long vacation

    I'm going on a long trip next summer and am getting a green cheek. I've heard many people comment that if you have a bird you just don't go on vacation but that isn't a option for me (I'm a minor). It's a family vacation to Europe for 6 weeks and I don't know what to do!! I have some time but I...
