    Aggressive lovebird

    I have a crippled lovebird and it hates hands. It only takes treats from hands and even then will try to bite you sometimes. Does anyone know how I can tame it? I also have a Conure and am too scared to see if it'll bite it. They were chatting but when I got him closer to the cage he started...

    new Senegal

    My father got a Senegal recently and I've been having trouble with it. I would call it a "mean" bird, but really it's just cage aggressive, for some reason when I sit by its cage it'll dance, and talk to me like saying "hi!". This is strange because it hasn't done this with any other family...

    Non Zinc Bird Perches

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had a good suggestion of some bird perches that don't have any hazardous materials like zinc hardware? I made the mistake of getting some perches from etsy where it seems no one will tell you upfront on their page. You have to specifically ask and, well, I...

    My cockatiel stopped liking me

    I’ve had my female cockatiel for about two years and we’ve always been very close and bonded, she was always very possessive of me and clingy, but suddenly only wants to hang out in her cage.

    Flight attacks

    Hi, I’m new to the forum. I recently adopted a 4 year old male blue naped amazon. We have reason to believe he has been passed around many families and was abused. He has a large scab on the top of his head and the previous owners kept him in a tiny dog cage and only fed him sunflower seeds...

    Cleaner recommendations!

    My Jenday loves to poop right against his cage door (probably because he likes to make my life difficult). The screws and tight areas are very difficult to clean and quickly get caked with bird poop. Any recommendations for those tight areas?:rainbow1:

    Is my bird sick or is he mimicking me?

    My alexandrine worries me. I read some posts on this forum about birds mimicking their owners sneezes and other sounds, but I'm still not sure what to make of this.
