Re: What mutation is this

I am sorry I'm still learning about mutations so I'm not much help, BUT I do know that you don't find many of these often, so definitely would be one to keep and would do well in a rainbow breeding...

Re: Someone help!!!!!

Hmm...a dilemma!!

My best advice is trick him from focusing on not wanting to be on you by offering a treat to him if he lets you pick him up. That’s what I do when my cockatiels need to go back...

Re: Should I breed my lorikeet with a wild bird?

Agreed with everyone here -- while good intended, allowing the breeding of your pet to a wild bird can be a welcome mat for disease, unhealthy chicks and unseen pathogens. Just not a good idea,...

Re: Green-wing macaws

Hi there,

You'll want to make sure the two birds you have breeding are in their own enclosure -- as with any big mas that breed they WILL get territorial and will need their own space, barred off...

Re: What's wrong with my parakeet help

Agreed there is nothing we can do online to help, we cannot see your bird and we are not veterinarians. The best thing to do for your bird is to find a vet (preferably avian vet) and get them there...

Hopefully this can also serve...

Re: Cockatoo never wants to be in the cage

I would start get him trained to be inside his cage more often. Not all the time, but small spurts at a time to get him used to it. It's pretty dangerous to have him out all the time, especially...

Re: Trying for a fall clutch!

The babies are doing great -- weaning well, eating on their own, climbing and flying and learning to preen, chew, play with toys. They are so grown up now, I can't believe they were just eggs sitting...

Re: Updates about Roky

Does he ever go in a cage?

Allowing him to sleep in a blanket overnight (especially with you) could cause hormonal behaviors not to mention it is pretty dangerous to allow him to do so. He would...

Re: About Cage Cleaning

I use F10, which is a veterinary grade cleaner that both sanitizes and disinfects while also cleaning. It's so safe, you can even spray it on the sprouts they eat to clean them.

Re: 2nd Caique for Existing Caique

Noodles said it -- only get a bird if you want one, because there is no telling if the new bird will like the old bird, or vice versa. Two of my male cockatiels cannot be around each other as they...

Re: New member

It's likely someone's lost pet if it climbed right into the cage, I would definitely post 'found bird' ads in your area as someone is probably missing it!
