Re: Taming of Willow

Make friendly eye contact by blinking slowly and winking as I said, when she is looking curiously at you, I just mean when she is nervous or you expect she might not fully trust you yet in a given...

Re: Someone help 2 parrots out!

Neglect is a criminal offence, you don't have to buy them because either the police or the ASPCA wil confiscate and take them to a rescue centre. You just have to report it.

Re: Taming of Willow

Let her come to you, don't react except casual glances when she gets closer or look at you, sit or lie on the floor as much as you can when she is out, use soft sleepy eyes and blink and wink slowly...

Re: parrot and other bird documentaries?

I've tried to watch that budgerigar one but it was too hard to see them die, especially as I had a budgie at the time. It was great to see how they behave in the wild and great facts about them for...

Re: Is this color normal for this feather? (Senegal)

I think you are supposed to take them to an avian vet when feathers change to yellow or brown, in case it's a liver or kidney problem.

Re: Hannah’s Wild bird photos and chat thread!

Is there a law against not providing vetinary care in Australia? If so reporting it will force something to happen and maybe the pet shop will stop using that breeder if the breeder is to blame and...

Re: A more compassionate approach to Pet owners from the "Non West"

Re: A more compassionate approach to Pet owners from the "Non West"

That's actually not true, most Spanish people are opposed to bull fighting, so much that it's close to being banned. Same as fox hunting with hounds which despite being an English practice got banned...

Re: Why is my indian ringneck puffed up all day

Either it's too cold or he's very ill. If increasing the room temperature doesn't stop him puffing up, take him to an avian vet immediately.

Re: Potential first time buyer

Re: Literally everything is deadly?

Air pollution outside has decimated numbers of birds in urban and semi-urban areas, at least in the UK. My best guess for why there are any left is genetic mutations that protect against death from...

Re: Potential first time buyer

Budgies do well in pairs, don't tend to decide they hate each other as often as other parrots, and don't need you home all day as long as they have enough space and toys. But you're very unlikely to...

The two vets he's registered with are on that list, but they don't have qualifications specific to birds, just exotics qualifications. I've been told that's as close to a certified avian specialist...
