    Friend for the parrot

    We got our parrot about six months ago. Now we need some advice. When we leave the house or just leave him alone for a while, he starts to get sad and cry (we heard it). We would not want him to be sad, so we are thinking about buying a companion for him. But since this is our first parrot, we...

    Destructive behavior or molting??

    Hi, I've had my GCC for nearly two years. She's been molting for a few weeks and she's had pin feathers around her head/neck and has grown in a few new wing and tail feathers. That's all been ok but I'm concerned about her back. She does have a handful of noticeable new feathers starting to grow...

    Starting miniature painting, need advice.

    So I'm thinking of going into painting minis. An old, artistic spark I once had in my younger years got re-ignited thanks to the youtube rabbit hole.

    Unsure about eggs?

    Hi all, Needing advice on something - I have a pair of alexandrine parrots and around mid September, my female had laid 5 eggs and has been sitting on them since.

    Strange behaviour?

    I have a sweet GCC named Fuji, he is 4 years old and yesterday I believe he vomited. This happened after he got a few sips of CBD oil by mistake. He is otherwise behaving very normally except for one thing, he seems to sip water between every mouthful of pellets. He doesn't do this with all...

    My parakeet couple keeps fighting D:

    I've had 2 budgies for about 2 years. The male (Kiwi) is about 2 years old and the female (Sarah) is about 7 years old. They mate with each other every once in a while, but I'm pretty sure Sarah is too old to produce eggs anyway. Recently I've noticed them fighting: Kiwi will be trying to woo...
