    Regurgitation before maturity

    I have a 1 year old Moustached Parakeet. She has been regurgitating for my husband and I frequently. She hasn't reached sexual maturity so I'm concerned that it's something unusual? She has been doing it for a few weeks. She's never actually brought anything up but I don't want to form that...

So I know I'm not supposed to give them a shower but at what age exactly can I give them a shower because they're starting to stink and their feathers are starting to have a weird texture to them.

    Independence Out of Cage

    Hi friends! :) This is my first week with my baby Pineapple GCC and she's a total angel. She plays super well on her own in her cage, eats and drinks comfortably and already knows how to step up and down (we practice for short increments every day). I'd like for her to learn how to play on her...

    My 3 months old ringneck isn't interested in any kind of interaction.

    When i got my male ringneck around 2 weeks ago, he was wild, and afraid of everyone. Now 2 weeks later, he steps up, flies to me, takes treats from my hand, and he is also target trained. But he doesn't care about any form of interaction. He isn't afraid of my hand anymore, but when my fingers...

    A new baby to our flock

    I adopted 5 budgies in November. They were about a year old. None were tamed. They have a room for themselves and are out 12 hours a day. Munny jumps on my hand to eat millet, Roger and Bunny eat while I'm holding it and Hunny and Sunny sometimes. We've come a long way. They have a great life...

    I cannot wait!

    I get my bird today! As some of you may know I have been preparing for a cockatiel baby for some time now. It was a close decision between a ‘tiel and a conure, but considering some of the noise conures are capable of, my family decided on a cute white face baby. :grey: After my classes I get...

    Reguritating??

    Can anyone shed some light on why my baby is attempting to regurgitate on me? Maui is only 10months old and has been home for slightly over a week now.
