    Is my bird grieving?

    So I posted a few days ago that one of my parrotlets died at the emergency room, and since I've been home and interacting with my other parrotlet (she's my only bird now), I've noticed she's been biting me more.

    Is my budgie sick?

    I recently took in my boyfriend's roommate's budgie. He's had him for some time, a few months or so now, and he wasn't exactly kept in the best conditions. He's been fed only seeds. He had a mirror toy that he became obsessed with and as a result became very bitey. He took to pleasuring himself...
