    A little help, please...

    Preface: I've had migi for 5 years now. He's my best friend. He's had behavioral issues in the past but we've always gotten over those humps. I've done plenty of research online so I think I may already know a lot of the answers I'm looking for, but I'm reaching out in hopes of getting some more...

    What Do These Head Movements Mean?

    Fifi Bowing Her Head So this is Fifi, who I adopted from a rescue last year. She’s estimated to be about 3-4 years old, but the rescue knew nothing else about her except that she’s female and another parrot injured her beak. I’ve finally decided on a vet and will be taking her in for exams and...

    Indian Ringneck Trouble!

    Hi! I've had my Montu for about 8/9 months now, making Montu about a year and a half now. I love her to pieces, but I'm very sure she doesn't like me very much. She flies from me, bites, and screams whenever I get too close. Anytime I come close she pulls away. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong...

    Is this a sign of agression?

    Hii, so I have a 3 yo BFA, bonded to me since I got her as a babe. She is quite mild for an Amazon, not too aggressive or even loud. Spends a lot of her time playing upside down, hanging, or swinging in her cage and outside. However, lately, when I ask her to step up when she is on top of her...

    Caique named Buckbeak
