Re: How do you guys clean your cage ?

Does anyone use a steam cleaner for cages? I have one cage that is too big to take outside (it has wheels, there are steps down from the back deck). Obviously the birds would be removed from the cage...

Travel cage for car travel

Hi all, I'm going to have to move this summer with my cockatiel and budgie, plus two kids and enough stuff to live on while we wait for a moving van. I already have a travel backpack that I've used...

Re: How long does a broken blood feather take to heal?

Thanks. The vet estimated Poochie is about two years old. Since his wings were clipped (and this was in the winter, not recently) the long feathers on one side have not grown back, but they have on...

How long does a broken blood feather take to heal?

Hi all, I haven't been by since shortly after I adopted my two budgies, Poochie and Cindy. Poochie has always had one wing that droops and he can't fly. The vet I took them too said it wasn't broken...

Re: Update on parakeet with slightly drooping wing

Huh, that's interesting since it seems like smaller parrots are frequently assigned shorter lifespans. In any case, I have no problem with a longer lifespan! My current cockatiel is thirteen and...

Re: Update on parakeet with slightly drooping wing

So short! I am slowly transitioning them to pellets and offering fresh foods. After the parakeets my family had when I was small, my first bird was a cockatiel who was with me for 27 years. The...

Update on parakeet with slightly drooping wing

My post was one of the ones that got deleted, but today I took Chicken and Peanut to the Brooklyn vet who sees birds. It was not a full certified avian vet exam, no bloodwork or x-rays. But he did...

Re: Female pair or male/female?

Thanks! I was pleasantly surprised how pretty they both are. I agreed to take them sight unseen, so they were a surprise. But I think the previous owner thought they were both female.

So to...

Female pair or male/female?

I'm back with more pics! My kids gave Cindy and Poochi the middle names Peanut and Chicken, and I'm going to use them as their primary names since I'm not fond of the ones they came with. I've been...

Just adopted two parakeets

I just adopted two budgies from a neighbor who needed to re-home them (the short story is, a relative asked her to watch them for a couple of days, then refused to pick them up for months!). I...

Re: What might have caused a broken nail?

Okay, here is the best picture of the toe I'm going to get. Any closer and my camera loses focus.

Re: What might have caused a broken nail?

I'll try to get a pic and post it later. I don't know how to tell if the bars on the cage are welded or like the canary cages. It's from the same company as the one in this link, but not this exact...

Re: What might have caused a broken nail?

Even if I had a video feed to my apartment, I wouldn't be able to check it very often during the day. But in three weeks the kids start camp, and after that they will be in preschool, so they will...

What might have caused a broken nail?

Tonight I noticed that my cockatiel has a nail broken off all the to the edge of the toe, and I feel terrible. I don't have any idea when this happened. His behavior has been normal, but I've been...

Re: Goodbye Monkey

Salty, you are very generous - thank you so much for the offer. I'm trying to see if any relatives in Long Island might let me use their property.

Thank you, everyone. He is currently resting with his fuzzy buddy in a tissue box (he always loved tissue boxes) and plastic bag in my freezer while I decide what to do. I live in NYC and don't...

Re: New cage

Well, thank you, but I have had him since he was a juvenile (dark spot on beak and grey face when I got him) and I've had him for sixteen years now, so this doesn't seem like anything special to me. ...

Re: Cage size for lovebird

I will definitely put the cages close, but attaching might be too difficult. It would make sense that Quinn wanted to drive away the weak bird, except when I do separate them, he freaks out until...
