    Male budgie parakeet flicking wings up every 3-5 seconds

    I'll try to keep this short and simple yet still as informative as I can, as I honestly have never seen something like this before. I've given up researching and calling the place I got him from (a very good place who loves their birds mind you, they just have no clue) and resorted to making a...

    Weird bump on birds wing

    I was petting my 4 month cockatiel this morning and noticed a weird hard bump. I never noticed it before, never knew he had this. He doesn’t bite it or scratch it as far as I know. There’s no blood around the bump, or redness. Can anyone give me an idea what this is? Here’s the only photos I...

    Occasional wing drooping?

    How normal (if at all) is it for a parrot to droop one wing sometimes and then hold it normal the rest? It’s something that has really puzzled me for the last few days, and I want to hear other people’s thoughts. For anyone concerned this is not about any of my budgies, they are all doing well :)

    Wing flipping

    Hello! My budgie keeps on flipping her wing up like when you raise your arms up. She does it very slowly, and often leans to one side. Could this mean that she's hurt? She is still very energetic and playful. She still flies around, so I don't know whether or not I should bring her to a vet.

    Urgent Wound on wing worsening- has anyone used "Lick Guard" ointment before?

    Hello community - first of all, I apologize for my lack of knowledge - I am a first time cockatiel owner and quite new at this, so I'm not sure how life threatening this wound is and clearly I've been doing the wrong things. So I adopted Peaches early November from a rescue foundation. Long...

    Urgent Injured Cockatiel Wing

    A few days ago my cockatiel seemed to have hurt her wing. I thought it was fine. She didn't seem hurt after then and for the next few days she seemed completely fine. A few minutes ago she tried to fly and now it seems hurt again. It dangles a bit but she can still move it. She seems to be in...
