Re: G2 or (male) Eclectus??

It concerns me a bit that you are bringing home one tomorrow when they require such different things and so much preparation.

Re: Help! I'm desperate

There are a lot of ups-and-downs in parrot ownership. Keep building trust-- do not push physical contact unless your bird is interested (but if it can be done safely, allow him to enter and exit as...

Re: Great Apartment Parrots?

They can all be extremely loud, but the bigger the bird, the larger the noise capacity. The small ones can still be heard through the walls when they get going though, so it would depend on your...

Re: Rescuing and Amazon

Welcome!!
Thank you for adopting!
Have you had a bird before? I always ask because there is a TON to know about things in the home that can kill them (cleaners, teflon etc)

Re: Feathers

Dna sexing and some really sketchy PBFD tests (but they are not accurate at all---the blood ones are better, but still somewhat unreliable).

Re: Leg band how important is it.

check requirements when exiting from US to Scandanavia and when returning from there to the US. They often are different and there can be a ton of red-tape. Any chance you could wait to get the bird...

Re: Ask for your opinion on that sudden death of my budgie

The point is, you are trying to do better now and will not make the same mistakes. Be gentle in the future (I know you will be).
Birds can bond to someone even if that person isn't great to them all...

Re: Adding another feathery member...

You also will want to consider the fact that your Macaw's personality will NOT stay the same. He is still a baby and until you know the adult version of him, you cannot predict much.

Re: will my remaining grey suffer without a companion bird?

So sorry for your sudden loss- that has to be hard....

Re: Nail grinder?

I just meant that if beak and nails seem to be growing at a faster-than-normal rate and it continues, it sometimes is the result of a liver issue. Not saying there are no other reasons, but if it...

Re: Ask for your opinion on that sudden death of my budgie

Your bird's death had nothing to do with your emotions. It is a mystery but it wasn't your emotions that caused it.

Re: Ask for your opinion on that sudden death of my budgie

Distilled water lacks the nutrients/minerals needed for hydration. Don't use it for drinking. A few times using distilled water wouldn't kill a bird, but don't use it in the future.

Re: Ask for your opinion on that sudden death of my budgie

Your bird drank water. Where did the water come from? If it flowed through pipes, there is a chance it contained things other than water.

Re: Ask for your opinion on that sudden death of my budgie

As long as your vet knows what he/she is doing, it sounds like other members have been okay using this method. I personally never have, but that is probably because Noodles is a bit of a saucy/sultry...

Did you ask him why he wanted you to put meds in water? It is generally very hard to tell how much they are getting when you do it that way, plus, it can stop them from wanting to drink their water...
