    32 year old CAG Dumping Food

    Hi all, my 32 year old CAG started dumping his seed/ food (same seed we’ve been feeding him for over 30 years once we figured out which one he liked). He scoops it out of his bowl, and even holds the banana chips in the seed to scoop the food out! My father lived with us and passed in January...

    Why is my lovebird panicking all off a sudden?

    My lovebird (male, about 4.5 months old) has been acting weird lately. He's acting very paranoid and panicky in his cage when it is bed time (online time when he is in his cage). First I thought it was Night fright, but it also happens when it's still light. This has been going on for like 2...

    Please help! Foaming from mouth.

    My 2 year old lovebird has started foaming at the mouth. She’ll start by looking like she’s about to regurgitate then all of the sudden there’s foamy saliva all over her beak. She’ll violently shake her head til it’s all stuck to her face. I wiped some off and gave her water but she’s been up...

    Video Weird Behavior

    So for the past week I’ve noticed Kiwi doing this sometimes. It looks kind of like crop adjusting or something, so I’m worried that it might be some kind of crop infection (AGY?) He makes beak grinding sounds when it happens, but it doesn’t look normal. Anyone have any idea what this is? I’m...

    Lovebird not taking to new foods

    Hi, I recently got my first bird two weeks ago (a lovebird of about 8 weeks old) and he used to seem pretty happy. That was until two days ago when we had to switch him from his old seed mix onto new ones because the old seed mix the breeder had left him was starting to run out. He didn’t take...
