    Two birds dead with no necropsy results as to why

    * posting for a friend * A friend of mine adopted two Green cheek conures in mid/late 2023, a 3 yr old and a 5 yr old. They lived in a birdroom with 14 other birds and were all caged separately.

    Trimming my conure's beak?

    Hi all! First time post. So I have a conure, Jack, who broke about 50% of his top beak and as such we take him to his vet monthly for bottom beak trims. For some time I've been thinking about doing the trims myself and recently have really wanted to do that more. Primarily this is because every...

    Just received a rescue Amazon about five days ago. He was badly neglected. When I arrived to rescue him he was highly agitated and distressed, obviously. I got him home. Set up his new cage and the works. The first two to three days he was highly energetic. We would wrestle and play and...

    Anyone have experience with raspy sounding contact calls?

    Hi all, About 5 days ago I noticed my GCC suddenly had a sort of raspy, hoarse sounding contact call. Just to be clear, I did call our avian vet ASAP who stated she believed that it was due to the dryer climate and we scheduled the next appointment to be safe but they were booked out almost 2...

    Do You Guys Order Blood Panels?

    Hello! I have an avian vet that I’ve been going to for years but we’ve only ever done a blood panel once. She doesn’t seem to think they’re really necessary but I think I’d feel better if I could keep track on everyone’s condition over the years so I can have a ballpark of what’s normal and...

Took him to the vet and ran us up almost $2000 but we love him so it’s totally worth it. We haven’t seen him back yet but the dr said...

    I happened upon this through local startup news, but with frequent posts from people who don't have direct access to an avian vet, or for a second opinion, it might be useful here...
