Question Who Here Feeds Grass?

I was wondering whether or not you guys feed your birds freshly collected grass seed as well. I spend quite a few hours during the summer collecting lots of grass seed heads (I leave it attached to 2...

Re: Good Seed Mix for Small Birds in Small Quantities

Old(ish) post, I know. I honestly find it cheaper, healthier, and less wasteful to make my own mix.

For Americans, I'd recommend buying from Sprout People, health food stores, and bulk stores...

Re: Goodbye Sweet Tiki

Thanks everyone :). It's been a really hard week for us. I honestly thought we'd be together for a lot longer. Looking back at it now, I should've realized something was wrong when he bit me badly...

Goodbye Sweet Tiki

He and Ria had a hard life. I adopted those two back on March 16, 2017. Unfortunately, Ria was taken before her time this January. Tiki put up a good fight as well. He faced many challenges in his...

When A Tiny Boo-Boo Turns Into A Bloodbath

I have everything under control at the moment, so don't worry. I just wanted to share my stressful day with you guys. Spoiler alert: she DOESN'T die!

Okay, so yesterday Trixie got an ouchie...

Re: "Avian" Vet vs Certified Avian Vet?

Great thread! My go to vet is Dr. Morris who's prices are dirt cheap and he's literally 10 minutes from me. I don't think he's a CAV, but he's very experienced when it comes to pretty much every...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Okay, so his callous (from his ouchie) finally came off yesterday. His leg looks amazing. His tendon is covered with tissue, and there's only the slightest indent where his calf was ripped off. He...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

No, I didn't mean you were annoying! I meant it was annoying that I thought I'd already replied when in fact I hadn't. Dr. Morris didn't say anything about it regrowing. I got the impression that he...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Okay, so I noticed Tiki do something the other day, but I didn't say anything because I wasn't 100% sure. However, I just confirmed it a few minutes ago. Tiki... is regaining use of the toes on his...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Annoying. I thought I posted a response, but apparently I haven't yet. Anyways, what I meant by "regenerate" was that animals tend to recover from tissue loss quite well. I mean, I cut my leg once...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Oh, I finished the device last night for his cripple legs. Put it on him a little while ago and it looks promising! He's taking smaller steps now (before he was taking ridiculously large steps), he's...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Sorry for not responding guys! I took Tiki to the vet and his leg...well it's injured, that's for sure. It's not broken or anything, he still has feeling in it, it's not infected, etc. However, his...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

My gosh, now they're vomiting! A few years back, I could feed them basically anything without them vomiting... Is it because I feed them pellets now? Is the moisture from their veggies and sprouts...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

No, no, no! I examined his leg yet again, and his leg... I'm bringing him to the vet ASAP. I don't know what happened to his "calf" muscle, but it's disappeared. Like, you know the show "House"?...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Thanks :). The problem is, when Ria died, he became very difficult to feed. The only thing he'd eat reliably were millet, sunflower seeds, bugs, and nuts. He quit eating pellets, most seeds, most...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

The reason I feed him so many high-fat foods is because he's underweight. All of his bones stick out and his keel is sharp. He was only 40g when I adopted him a year ago. He's put on some weight,...

Re: Do you need to have a cage cover?

What Scott said, plus an added warning to make sure their nails aren't able to get hooked in the material. I used to cover my birds, and I also had a nightlight for them, but now that they're in the...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Well, my birds' diets vary from month to month. Because I'm lazy. Well, mainly based on food availability and their changing tastes. Anyways, at the moment I'm feeding him the aforementioned insects,...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Well, I gave him a bath earlier and he nearly died. He hadn't bathed for over three months (he quit bathing shortly after Ria's death), so I got him a dish of lukewarm water, held him in it, and...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Actually, we now think his original injury might have been (accidentally) self-inflicted. Oh, and guess what? Dr. Yee no longer works at Bowmanville, so I have to find a new vet for my kids! Do you...

Tiki Was Attacked Today
