    Aggressions problem

    Hi, this is my first post, and I could really use some help with my bird's recent aggressive behavior. My bird is a little more than a year old, and I believe his aggression might be related to a mirror toy in his cage, possibly due to hormonal changes. Today, when I tried to let him step onto...

    Finding a Bourke Breeder

    I'm thinking of getting a Bourke soon but I can't find any breeders. All the ones that I have found online either stopped breeding 10 years ago or are a scam. Does anyone know any reliable breeders who ship and or are in the Midwest?

    Help! She laid an egg….

    Hey everybody. Miss Gizmo suprised me a couple of days ago with a small egg at the bottom of her cage. She appears to have a bit of egg butt going on - but still her usual self, being noisy, happy, eating and drinking which is great. I’m a little stressed though as I know female lories are prone...

    A place to hide?

    So I’ve read that lovebirds natural habitats are usually in the sub-Saharan deserts of Africa, and that they like to live tucked away in tree holes and whatnot. This begs the question: should I get my two birdies a place to hide? Like a little box for them to crawl into? One of my birds is not...

    Am I doing this right?

    Hi everyone! So I have recently adopted two lovebirds, Fiffel and Volfie (don’t ask about the names, it’s a long story haha) and I guess I’m just sort of seconding guessing myself? I’ve had them for about a month, and they’re both roughly around 6 months old. Volfie has had a traumatic past and...

    Second thoughts and doubts.

    I am honestly kinda nervous about getting a budgie and as much as I hate to admit, I’m having second thoughts. I want to get a budgie but in the same breath, I’m just worried about a lot.

    So many pellet options, what do I choose?

    Hello! I have come to realize my bird isn’t a huge fan of Psittacus pellets but I like the brand. Sadly he just doesn’t like the pellets anymore so now I just have 4 pounds of pellets he doesn’t favor. He will eat it but prefers other brands. So, when he finishes the bag, I’m going to get him...

    Head Injury?

    Yesterday afternoon my green cheek conure, Beans, got spooked by something and flew into a window. He usually doesn't do this but he hit it pretty hard and stunned himself. The stun only lasted a minute or two and his foot was clenched and his one wing was limp, he soon snapped out of it and...
