    Urgent Night fright - consussion worries

    Genji had his first night fright in months about an hour ago. It didn't last long since I was sitting just a few feet away, and got to him In less than 10 seconds, but I'm worried he may have hit his head, since I found him in the upper corner on a perch when I lifted the blanket. For the...

    Chewed screen protector (did he eat glass/plastic?)

    My bird cracked my screen on the edge and started chewing for about a minute or two on something in his mouth. Could it be glass in his mouth or just the popping noise made by his beak sometimes? Should I take him to the vet?

    Skinny bird!

    My green cheek is a seemingly healthy bird, and I give him 3 1/2 tbsp every day in pellets. I felt his keel bone and he isn’t in good shape, a little bit on the skinny side. How can I help him get some weight? I’ve increased his diet from 1 1/2 over the course of a week, and he still hasn’t been...

    Urgent Could be chocolate injested?!

    Percy was biting my fingernails, when I realized there was chocolate underneath them. I can’t remember how much there was or which finger it was, but I’m still concerned. Anything I can do to make sure he’s not sick?

    Urgent Why is his poop green?!

    We’re feeding my 2. Mo old green cheek Zupreem natural pellets and Zupreem fruit blend pellets and his poop is a lime green/brown. Everywhere I’ve read says that’s a serious problem and I’m really worried! I’m immediately taking him off the fruit pellets and I am going to see what happens!

    My conure was sneezing several times earlier which worried me. She was eating some of her seed and sneezed once then got off her bowl and she was like doing something similar to when they're tired and content and they make the that chewing noise. It was similar to that but without that...
