    Flight attacks

    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...

    Indian Ringneck furious over certain things.

    Hey all. I have an IRN and I need a little help. She starts puffing up, screaming and attacking me consistently over certain things, including bells, ice cubes and guitars.

    HELP!! My bird is terrorizing our puppy!

    Okay, I know everyone's immediate reaction is it's jealousy, but it's not as simple as that. Please allow me to share some history: When I got Beaubeau (he's a Nanday) as a baby, he was so sweet, not just to me but to almost everyone. He gradually became more attached to me and not as friendly...

    Help me please, my Canary-Winged Bebe is going crazy.

    I'm hoping someone here can help me. When our Jenday conure died we did a lot of research into finding the right bird for our family. We decided after months of research that a Hahns Macaw was what we wanted. We have a busy household with two dogs and two kids but I am ALWAYS home so its a...

    Please help!!

    A number of years ago a friend of ours found a pet Quaker in their backyard. Unable to keep it, my family took it in. It was relativity friendly and took a bit to adjust, but everything was fine. It had a tag on its foot, and we were able to track down the breeder. However we were never able to...

    I seem to have a unique situation with my almost 2 year old Caique, Chip: I came back from a 10 day vacation a couple days ago and Chip was happy and cuddly - normal.
