Re: Budgie - cough and dry retching?

Testing for bacteria or yeast should be pretty routine, the easiest is a crop swab. I believe it's performed similarly to a gram stain, just a sample taken from the crop and put on a slide. You'd be...

Re: Using F10 with seed sprouts, and mouldy millet

You wouldn't need much ACV, but I always use that during the soaking phase. I've never used F10 for soaking but it's a very safe chemical. As for seeds and millet, properly stored should be fine. I...

Re: Please read, many birds dead at rehab, food to blame?

I'm also surprised nothing has some up on necropsies. Certain things may not show up, but you'd think something would be common among all of them pointing to a cause. I know there were some results...

Re: crimson rosella gender

The only way to know for sure is DNA testing. Crimson Rosellas aren't really sexually dymorphic. There is a slight size size difference (males are very slightly larger) but it's not a reliable way to...

Re: Cara Cara Oranges

Specific variety does matter since some are slightly different in terms of acid and sugar content, but moderation is key and I would treat it as you would any other citrus. Interestingly enough, one...

Re: I ask for help in the treatment of African parrot

Re: I ask for help in the treatment of African parrot

It's sometimes hard to tell if the seller is reputable. You have to be careful of counterfeit or contaminated products. They might also be expired.

Re: Not so good night

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Seconding a necropsy, I always get them done even if I'm fairly sure what the cause was. Definitely keep an eye on your other GCC and it would probably be a good idea...

Re: Alright, guys. Starving orphan arriving in T-16 hours. Help me dot my i's in prep

Food dye works really well, though just be careful because it can still stain other things!

Apple cider vinegar if you don't have it, papaya/papaya enzyme in case of slow or sour crop.

Ultrasonic or cool mist humidifer as well.

I always have apple juice boxes around, might be...

Re: I've had to give up

There's nothing you need to feel bad about, it can be a big decision. It's much easier to get a bird later than to undo getting one if you're not ready. Volunteer at a bird shelter if you can to get...

Re: I ask for help in the treatment of African parrot
