Re: How structured are your routines?

Your mileage May vary, Noodles. Your experience with your cockatoo isn't necessarily going to be the experience of others with a conure, or those of an eclectus. Each species and bird is different,...

Re: How structured are your routines?

Sorry Laura, this gave me a huge giggle in strong contrast to mine and Stevens post, gave me a great smile.

Re: How structured are your routines?

Look at Steven getting all meta over here! better than I could have ever explained it!

To build slightly on above, it also speaks to ensuring something new is coming at the bird every day. Feed in...

Re: How structured are your routines?

I think you’re going to get different answers from different people. Most people here are just workaday folks with 9-5 jobs, so the structure is inherent to their day.

Re: Which Airline would fly cockatoos in the cabin?

In the cabin...where he can scream his fool head off and piss off every passenger within earshot, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Re: Did I make the right decision with my Timneh African grey?

I’m sorry your going through this!

I think if you were up to toweling and dosing, you probably made the right decision leaving it to the professionals. Sounds like you have a great CAV, if not...

Re: Toe tapping, UGH!

Glad to hear it! Toe tapping, depending on the bird (ymmv), can take a day to manifest, and up to two days to disappear, which is why you give three days between new foods. If you’ve introduce the...

Re: Bird behavior resorces

In some ways a macaw would be easier! But macaws can become bullies in the wrong hands.

Re: Toe tapping, UGH!

Hi Jon!!

Fabulous advice from everyone here, hopefully the lab results may provide some much needed clarity.

The way I personally dealt with it wasn’t quite an elimination diet, so much as a...

Re: Bird behavior resorces

Hello and welcome!

I assume you’re not in school, correct? An Ekkie for your first bird? Not sure that’s very wise, but that wasn’t the question you asked.

You better be ready, cause they...

Re: Puffed Buckwheat and Puffed Brown Rice - healthy?

Long story short: treat only, not a main part of the diet. Decreases nutrition and increases sugar content, similar to dehydration. I’d just cook the rice, and either serve the bud keg eat raw or...

Re: My Male Budgie is Aggressive towards my Female Bird. What can I do?

Sorry your experiencing this.

You’re not going to like the answer: yes, you’ll have to permanently separate them. You can’t make birds like each other. Especially when it sounds like hormones...

Re: Doesn't want to play with toys

Great advice above!

I love birdtricks but on rare occasions they...miss the mark, and this is one of those. Not every bird wants to shred toys. Try getting most eclectus males to shred anything...

It’s the inside of the mouth you have to worry about.

Re: Severe Macaw as an apartment bird?

A Jenday is an aratinga (same genus as sun conures, blue crown conures, etc); they all have terrible screeches.

You could get away with pyrrhura conures - painted conures, pearly conures, green...
