Re: Introducing my budgie to our puppy

If the puppy is focusing on the bird while barking, your pup likely has a strong prey drive. As other have said, you risk losing your bird in a blink of an eye. I vote for no direct interaction,...

If you decide to go with red palm oil, check the label to...

Re: Need New Food for Treble-this is so overwhelming!

Fresh is best. Birds don't eat pellets in the wild. It's a human creation to bring ease of feeding for bird owners. I believe pellets should should be made available, but not the predominant food...

Re: Need New Food for Treble-this is so overwhelming!

Fresh veggies and some fresh fruit daily is on top of the list. Sprouts, some grains, some seed and pellets are also great things. The key is to offer him a wide variety of foods. I actually own a...

Re: was this the right thing to do ?? good bye

I agree with respect to the size of the cage. She needs things to do while she's caged. Things to chew, things to tear and things to discover as foraging activities.

If she were to have a larger...

Re: Struggling to form a bond with our new grey

Greys can take a super long time to warm up. Follow his lead and don't push what you'd like onto him. He has to initiate.
With that being said, sit next to him while you do quiet activities, stop to...

Re: Teflon Paint Ants and Birds.

I use borax, sugar and water solution. They go nuts over it. Within a few days of eating it and taking it back to their nest, they're gone!
