Re: More Pics of Zilla in the Cristmas Tree

Aw cute! I wanted to see Cooper in our tree, but since we dont have an artificial tree, i was worried about getting sap in his feathers. Is that just being paranoid? haha

Re: What type of water do you feed your parrots?

I have always given all of my pets, including cooper and my lizards. It hasnt harmed any of them over the past few years. I would say most tap water is safe

Re: New baby

I agree, wait until he is fully weaned. Cooper was about 3 months old when we got him, and at that point he was weaned for about a week on a pellet diet. It can vary between individual birds but it...

Re: please help with quaker tail feather
