    What kind of toys should I get?

    I cleaned and organized Aristotleā€™s cage today since I had no school, but I was wondering; what kinda of toys should I get for him? After all, his cage is mainly perches. (Also, I am going to buy him a bigger cage, but for now he is still using the cage that his previous owner gave to me.)...

    My new best friend!

    I was supposed to go tomorrow but out of fear of the babies getting sold, I went today. On my way home a wicked snow storm started, but rest assured, the baby is warm and safe. The store owner told me she thinks my baby is a girl based on her pelvis, so to be safe she will receive plenty of...

    Wanting to get a bird, abusive store conditions?

    Hi there Recently I've really been wanting a bird in my life. I had a lovely cockatiel that I unfortunately had to rehome due to unforeseen circumstances, we suddenly had to move into a house with an unfamiliar person, and I was forced to find a new home for them, as I was still a minor when I...

    Trouble with Keeping Birds Separated

    Hello there. Let me preface this by saying I am trying my damn best right now. I have a conure and a cockatiel, both males, with which the conure is about 8 months old and my cockatiel about 2 or so years (unknown, tbh). They bonded, but I have to keep them separate because my cockatiel will try...

    Conure overly clingy and biting issue

    Hello, I guess this thread is a follow up to my last post. My GCC is usually just nippy which doesn't scratch skin or draw blood. But recently he would be mad at me and bite my VERY hard after I leave him in the cage for even just a couple hours. This aggressiveness can last up to 3 days during...

    curled tail

    I left my GCC alone all today and just got back. I instantly noticed that one of his smaller tail feathers are curling. I don't know why. I wasn't there at all today but I left him with fresh water and food. Is it stress? I wasn't home at all today so I don't know if he got it stuck and bent it...

    My family and I came home from a 4-day vacation last night to find our green cheek of 9 years, Rikki, dead at the bottom of her cage. I called out her name as I entered the house, hoping to hear an ecstatic shriek in response, and instead heard nothing. I went over and she was dead at the bottom...

    Hello! I'm very excited to be getting a Conure after wanting one for years :D I've done a ton of research but is there any tips/things I should watch out for as a first time (Conure) owner? The little guy I'm adopting is 4 years old and should be getting him this week :)

    conure acting weird

    I was cuddling with my Conure and he started to fluff up LIKE REALLY BIG. Biggest I've ever seen and he was bopping his head a lot. No food was puked up though. and he kept turning himself over I am wondering if this is something to do with hormones. He hasn't rubbed his butt up against me or...

    Cockatiel problems with conure

    Hello. So, I have a cockatiel (Artemis) and a conure (Xatu) that are both male. Xatu is about 8 months old, and Artemis is of an unknown age, but around 1-2 years. They get along really well for the most part - grooming and feeding each other even. However, multiple times throughout the day...

    good heat lamps/humidifier?

    Vet told us that my baby has a mild lung infection today :( Vet recommended that we get a humidifier and heat lamp for Navi. Does anyone have any good suggestions on what brand to use? I've read that Puresun Midis by Arcadia are good. I'd prefer one that isn't too expensive (maybe around $100...

    how can I stop biting?

    How can I stop my Conure from biting? He gets jealous of every object I hold. I can't wipe up his poop without him come running and biting to the point of bleeding. He does the same when I hold remotes, phones, bottles, etc. I've been told so many different things. Ignore the behavior or say...

    New bird advice?

    Hello!!!! So, I've had birds in the past, but they weren't tame/ lived in an aviary and I didn't really interact with them very much. The aviary was my parents when I was a child, and when I had my last birds, I was very depressed and didn't take the best of care of them admittedly, and ended up...

    Does anyone know how to tame a parent-raised bird?

    I bought a bird and was told it was hand-raised, but I highly doubt it. It's terrified of hands. The owner said she hadn't spent much time with it. I thought she meant it recently, but I'm starting to think she didn't spend time with it at all. My first Conure came hand-raised and never was...

    Aggression in Quaker when attempting to introduce Green Cheek Conure into Home

    My partner and I have had our Quaker parrot Milo for around 8 months now. He was a rehome from a pet store at around 18 months old when we got him, after being surrendered to the pet store. We have recently purchased a green cheek conure at 1 years old. Milo was already reasonably calm and...

    new conure trouble

    I've gotten a new Conure. It's been really difficult though. Unlike my first bird, it seems to be scared of hands. It's hard to tell if it's tamed or not. It allows pets, but runs away and bites hands. I've gotten 4 nasty bites from it already. I'm not sure how to approach this. My first bird...

    New pineapple green cheek conure scared of hands

    I got a 10 month old pineapple conure a couple days ago and he settled right in, he is already wanting attention and coming out of the cage to greet me and receive treats. His previous owners bought him from Petco and he wasn't handfed, they didn't have the time for him so he was never tamed but...

    New friends??

    I want to get my GCC a friend. Are Green Cheeks more of a solo bird? I know it depends on the bird. I was thinking of getting another GCC or a Sun Conure. My bird is a bit jealous of objects, I've noticed. When I give attention to anything else (phones, tissues, drinks) he will attack it and...
