Re: How are introductions made?

My current conure is just a little 2 years old. She does not appear to show any interest in the wild birds that she sees near her - but she is safe in her cage/home too.

Re: Conure talking abilities

My conure never spoke a word until after a year and I think it was a guest that got her going. My guest was always saying "Give me kiss" and now my conure now says it often. I recently was playing...

Re: Chewing on their favorite perch

Thanks for all of the replies. It is comforting to know that others have this same problem. I will just keep replacing them and maybe try new types of wood.

Chewing on their favorite perch

Inside of the very large cage for 2 bonded Amazons, I strategically placed an appropriate sized limb of a guava tree as a perch. The two birds love that perch and use that one to sleep on. But the...

Re: URGENT brown feathers

Almost a two year old post helped me out today. I noticed brown feathers on my Amazons recently and thought it was strange. They actually have been eating very well enjoying the fresh veggies and...

Re: Female ekkie and huts in cage

Chris MD, I appreciate your reply and it helps me that you own an ekkie. But maybe this is a special case. For starters, I am being given this advice from a woman who manages a lot of adopted parrots...

Female ekkie and huts in cage

Hello, I am considering adopting an female ekkie. I have a large enough cage but the current owner says that I will need some kind of private area inside of the cage. Do other female ekkie parronts...

Cinco De Mayo fears

I know parrots are not supposed to be fed avocado. But does anyone have a feel for how toxic avocados can be? Today I made a Cinco De Mayo lunch. This involved making some Mexican corn that was...

Famous Art and Amazons

Maybe adopting a male crazy female ekkie?

I already own (or they own me) two Amazons and a conure. I have come across a potential situation for the adoption of a 25 year old female ekkie. The sanctuary owners are requesting the new adopted...

Re: Anger Nip

Thank both of you for your replies. I think the answer is somewhere in between. I do consider it a super, super mild act of aggression not a taste nip. I really think she is trying to communicate....

Re: Spreading legs

I'm sure it is not injury related. She gets around everywhere with no problem. Balance is great.

She definitely has her game face on while doing her splits. I just wanted to make sure it was not...

Spreading legs

Lately my conure seem to like to put one leg on one finger and the other leg on another finger and sort of spread out. Pretty far too. Like as far as she can physically split them. Is this normal or...

Re: Keeping the treat special?

Thanks Laurasea, I needed to read that. I tell people that the sassflower seeds are like "crack" for her. She can be ornery, stand offish, looking a little blue, and the world changes when she sees...

Mild clipping?
