    Hi, I’m new to the forum. I recently adopted a 4 year old male blue naped amazon. We have reason to believe he has been passed around many families and was abused. He has a large scab on the top of his head and the previous owners kept him in a tiny dog cage and only fed him sunflower seeds...

    GCC's constant and resilient biting

    I'm making a dedicated thread to how my GCC (named Climber) is constantly looking for things to bite. He has a toy that he usually stands on but apart from that he doesn't have anything else to bite (in my house), so he looks for random things within his reach to bite (even my computer mousepad...

    Hi everyone, so I have this recently adopted Sun Conure Mango. He was one of my class mates and I asked to take him in because they thought he was to loud.
