Wicked Quaker

So Nimbus has developed a rather wicked sense of humour. He loves to sit on your shoulder and groom your ear. Will do this with anyone in the house that he knows. His favourite thing in the world at...

Re: welcome home Orbit

When we first brought Nimbus home he screamed a fair bit. Not a big shock that really. I made what I have since dubbed the tanty tub to help with keeping him amused. I zip tied a clean plastic tub to...

Re: Possible Wing Deformity?

Without a picture there isn't much anyone can say aside from get the little one to an avian vet as soon as possible.

As for posting images I use imgur (imgur.com) and copy/paste the BBCode to the...

Re: Seasons changing Quaker Behaviour

Still early days for us here with Nimbus. He's a little erratic with his moods still, especially at the moment. He will beak grind and purr when content but the only time he uses anything close to a...

Re: Seasons changing Quaker Behaviour

I'm in the same boat you are OzBlue. I'm new to keeping quakers myself. We've only had ours for about 2 months or so. Three year old male who is starting to show his cranky side. So far he is not too...

Re: Need Help! Possible partner for my quaker?

Quakers can be very finicky about partners. They need time to build up a relationship. If they decide that they don't like the other bird no amount of time will help.

Are you prepared to have two...

Re: Seasons changing Quaker Behaviour

Here in Australia Quakers will start getting that nesting feeling mid to late September for the Oct - Nov breeding season. Expect a shorter temper from mid September through to mid December.

Re: Troubled Toddler Turquoise

Does he have any pin feathers at the moment? My wife's Conure will behave exactly the same way if "you" catch a pin feather. Have a short piece of dowel ready and get him to step up on that and move...

Re: black capped conure's strange coloring?

Looking at the first picture I would say pied mutation but I have no experience with how a black capped should look.

Re: Happy Hut Alternatives

Sometimes it's a good thing that old threads get to see the light of day so new members, lurkers and google bots get see the information rather than it being left archived.

Re: Hear me out

That's a very good point and one that I should have considered. It would fit with self preservation. When in a high enough state of fear animals have been known to abandon or abort offspring in order...

Re: Hear me out

Stress eggs are a misconception created by cartoons showing chickens laying eggs when frightened.

There is no way an animal would throw away the amount of resources it would take to create an egg...

Re: It is with a heavy heart . .

Due to severe COVID-19 restrictions here in Victoria, Australia I am unable to get to my Avian Vet. I am not allowed to travel that many suburbs away. My local vet's main surgery is in a locked down...

Re: It is with a heavy heart . .

Re: Any one else need to do this to protect... Well.... Any drink?

With my wife's conure Echo it doesn't matter if you cover it or not. He'll sit on her shoulder and wait until the mug/glass is raised to the lips and then run down the arm and try to squeeze his head...

Re: Parakeet swollen foot

Well I don't think it's any kind of serious break or anything like that if she is using it to perch. No discolouration just some mild swelling from what I can see in the pictures. Most likely it is a...

Re: My bourke Quinn

No it doesn't really matter I only asked as the male bourke has a lovely little call. It's not loud but it is quite pretty for a parrot.



Usually you find pink bourkes or wild types up for...

Re: Parakeet swollen foot

When you say limp do you mean relaxed and being held up close to the body or limp as in floppy and not under the birds control? If it's the latter it is most likely broken and in need of immediate...

Re: My bourke Quinn

Lovely looking bourke. Did you get it DNA'd so you know it's a male? With that mutation it would be impossible to work out by looking. One of my favourite small parrot species. The male has a lovely...
