Re: Parrot nail clipping

From my experience, it is pretty abrupt (like, sudden bleeding, usually right after the cut) but I do not know if that is always the case...If you dremel, be very careful with their tongues and make...

Re: How to convince my mom to let me breed my budgies?

Just remember, breeding in the US is not the same as Australia, as their veterinary care and products are quite different from those in the US. Plus, weather is warm there all year, so an outdoor...

Re: How to convince my mom to let me breed my budgies?

Welcome!!!


I am sure you are a good owner, but I 500% agree with above.--- breeding is a very different situation and it is expensive and full of risk (for baby and parents). When I was in...

Re: New Bird Owner Behavior Questions

To get your bird to be more independent, you need to narrate what you are doing and use key phrases. Station training is also very helpful as far as getting them more inclined to staying in an area....

Re: Foot trouble

Wider cages are way better than tall ones, due to their flight patterns etc. You always want wide over tall (although if you opt for wide, you should still elevate a cage if it doesn't come with a...

Re: What do all you long haired people do??

Noodles only messes with my hair when extremely hormonal. If she is obsessing over it, I don't hold her as much and I do usually wear my hair back, but its to the middle of my rib cage at this point,...

Re: Help -Rehoming?

It does sound like these behaviors could be minimized (in comparison to where they are right now) with the proper patience, enrichment and behavioral training, but they definitely are a ton of work...

Re: Buying one ekkie... should I get another?

I would stick with one (personally)..at least until your baby is grown up. If you bring a new bird home, you should always quarantine it for 45 days unless it was already sharing a cage with your...

Re: My green cheek is obsessed with my 22 year old son and biting men

It sounds hormonal (mixed with some behaviors that probably have been inadvertantly reinforced).


Make sure he has a bare minimum of 10 hours sleep nightly.

Re: Bloody conure scare

It depends on the feather location etc--- I have had 1 of Noodles' pulled at the vet and the rest (smaller ones) were left alone.

Re: Mixed species in one cage?

Unless someone knows exactly what he/she is doing, mixing is generally risky (especially for someone who hasn't had a lot of experience). I would not feel comfortable doing it in general (due to the...

Re: Mixed species in one cage?

Very good to hear that--if you get 2, know that you can't really tell how 2 will get along until after both hit sexual maturity (and even then, it will take a few months because there is that...

Re: Mixed species in one cage?

You should not house multiple species together in a cage (in a MASSIVE, zoo-sized aviary, MAYBE). Even 2 birds of the same species often will fight and injure or kill the other...

Why did you give them a nestbox? If you are wanting them to breed, a nest-box is what you would provide. The reason that I am always telling people to avoid boxes, huts, shadowy spaces= it gets them...

Re: Progress of my built-in cage
