Name of "T-Rex" Mouth Membrane?

Okay, so I've been trying to find out for years what this thing is called. You know how parrots have fleshy cheek pads in the corners of their mouth? You know, those fleshy things that remind you of...

Re: Ringneck Dove Has Weird Issue With the Skin On His Legs and Feet

That's horrible! Hopefully it's just a fungal thing. On a positive note, your budgies haven't been anywhere near him. It would be terrible if your other parrots have avian pox, though. That's...

Re: Plucking Due to Health Problems?

Sorry, just read your post now. She went to the vet earlier today and we plucked a bunch of ingrown feathers. And by ingrown, I mean they're all curled up underneath her skin (they've been like that...

Re: Plucking Due to Health Problems?

Okay, so I think part of the problem is that she appears to have some ingrown feathers. I'm gonna have the vet remove them when I take Poppy in to get her beak shaped. I think another reason for her...

Re: Plucking Due to Health Problems?

Huh, okay guys, thanks. When I first got her, she was quite nakedĽ~. She's a senior and a chronic egg layer as well, but so far she's only laid one egg since I got her this spring. Or was it summer...

Re: How much do budgies drink?

I think I read in a dietary study that budgies drink 4ml a day. However, I definitely don't believe that! Maybe if you're feeding a diet with only 2% moisture, then they might drink that much, but...

Question Plucking Due to Health Problems?

Hey guys. It just dawned on me that for the past few months, Trixie's only been plucking very specific parts of her body. She's been plucking a half inch spot of the right side of her throat/chest, a...

Re: Tieing a string to the birds leg....

Yeah, using a creance is only for birds of prey and corvids. Their legs and feet are far more robust than those of parrots, not to mention they don't tend to "dart" like parrots. If you did that with...

Re: Feather Gland

I had a similar problem with sweet little Samantha. One day I walked into their room to check on them, and her beak was covered in blood. I looked her over for a few minutes (without touching her)...

Re: Yet More Problems with Rumi the Cripple

Okay, so we just saw the vet and it turns out she just pulled a muscle or injured a tendon. She just has to take painkillers twice a day for five days and she should be fine. I'm glad it was just...

Re: Yet More Problems with Rumi the Cripple

Yep, avian gastric yeast. Treated for 30 days with amphotericin B. I also had them on apple cider vinegar in their water and a touch of citric acid in their chop for the following couple of months,...

Yet More Problems with Rumi the Cripple

Poor Rumi. You all know Rumi. Sweet, curious, incredibly intelligent yellow budgie with neurological problems. Well, she had yet another bad stroke a month or so ago (stroke #4 or #5). Then her mate,...

Re: Humidifier with pure eucalyptus/ orange essential oil safe?

As the others have said, in a perfect world we should be able to use eucalyptus oil or orange oil. There's nothing inherently wrong with either oil. In fact, eucalyptus oil can be very beneficial for...

Question Who Here Feeds Grass?

I was wondering whether or not you guys feed your birds freshly collected grass seed as well. I spend quite a few hours during the summer collecting lots of grass seed heads (I leave it attached to 2...

Re: Good Seed Mix for Small Birds in Small Quantities

Old(ish) post, I know. I honestly find it cheaper, healthier, and less wasteful to make my own mix.

For Americans, I'd recommend buying from Sprout People, health food stores, and bulk stores...

Goodbye Sweet Tiki

He and Ria had a hard life. I adopted those two back on March 16, 2017. Unfortunately, Ria was taken before her time this January. Tiki put up a good fight as well. He faced many challenges in his...

Re: "Avian" Vet vs Certified Avian Vet?

Great thread! My go to vet is Dr. Morris who's prices are dirt cheap and he's literally 10 minutes from me. I don't think he's a CAV, but he's very experienced when it comes to pretty much every...

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Re: Tiki Was Attacked Today

Annoying. I thought I posted a response, but apparently I haven't yet. Anyways, what I meant by "regenerate" was that animals tend to recover from tissue loss quite well. I mean, I cut my leg once...
