Re: Parrot flying to me

Station training, which is basically teaching him to "stay put". You reward him for staying where-ever it is you want him to stay. However, you also need to keep him pre-occupied with toys and...

Re: Have a question about a grey African

I have come across people who have had birds (singularly) that have had birds incorrectly sexed or received no result... be it DNA sexed or SS sexed. One quaker was SS sexed male but he laid an egg!...

Re: Citron cockatoo in need of rehoming

Re: 1/2" to 5/8" spacing - please share your cage!

The HQ and A&E flight cages that are 32x21 are good cages. If you are looking for one large door, then go with A&E. Caring for a green cheek and I recently upgraded him to a cage similar to these,...

Re: Problem with my bird? Help :(

SilverSage is correct! Those are adult feathers! As chicks, their feathers aren't as bright and vibrant as they will be as adults. Your baby is molting!

Re: GoldnObles 1 - New batch problem?

Re: Food question (and a success story)

I've never purchased a "powder" pellet.... I just use a coffee grinder or food processor! A bag and a rolling pin could also work... just grind up the pellets that you *DO* have into a powder!

Re: Plucking or health problem?

Chances are, she had a night fright and was in panic mode... might have thought she got caught and dropped some of her flight feathers. This is "normal" - although most people are familiar when they...

Based on the image, you can remove the tray and still have the playstand. Heck, you could even replace it with acrylic sheeting or glass instead! The "base" of the playstand can't be removed, but it...

Re: my lovebird thats been with me 2 years is sick and I couldnt find anything about
