    Budgies and kitten

    I am getting a kitten next week, and I already have two budgies. The budgies are in their cage most of the day downstairs in the living room, the living room doesn't have a door, it's very open. When I let them out for exercise, we go upstairs in my room, because the living room has too many...

    Budgie Is Bleeding

    Budgie is Hurt Please Help! Hi, It’s been awhile since I’ve used the forums so I’m not sure if I’m using it right again but I’m not really sure what to do. I took my two budgies to the bird store I got them from to get their nails trimmed. Usually the owner does the grooming and it goes well...

    Should I get a conure?

    Hi everybody! I’m a new member (or, well, a person who’s been lurking for the past year or so), and I’m hoping to get a parrot as an emotional support animal. However, I’m really afraid I won’t be a good parront. I’m a first time bird owner and a college student, so there are a lot of concerns I...

    I don't know what to do.

    I recently got a green cheek conure thinking I can raise a happy bird and finally own one as I have been wanting too for years. I had a plan and did research and suddenly my work shifts changed without warning. So now I can barely be home to be near her and I don't think she would be happy...

    Tips on switching cages for a nervous birdie

    My nanday conure, Mort, is very attached to her cage. Some days she won't want to leave it, and the top removes, so if we want her to interact with us in another room we need to tote the top along with us. (Might also partially be because shes not a fan of being handled/ hands/ sometimes even...

    Nanday conure humping? Maybe?

    My Nanday Mort has started rubbing her bum on everything (humping, I guess). Her toys, perches, food bowl... Everything. Is this something I should stop, or be concerned with? I usually try to distract her, but she has started doing it more and more. Any advice is helpful, I'm a newbie! :green2:

    Non-toxic bird cages

    I had noticed that my lovebird has been urinating frequently and in big amounts. I took him to the vet a few days ago and they took x-rays which showed that he has small pieces of metal inside his body. I was absolutely shocked and devastated at the same time. He is currently at the vet...

    Hello, my name is Mikayla and Im a bit of a bird nerd. I've just gotten my first real job and can finally save to adopt a feather baby! I have done gratuitous amounts of research and know that I myself am ready, but I'm not sure my situation is. So I figured I'd ask experienced conure owners to...

    Is my sun conure sick?

    I recently bought a sun conure from a private breeder. Tutti, my sun conure, is 3 months old so the seller gave me the baby food that I mix with warm water. But ever since I bought Tutti, he's been sneezing. I've had him for 5 days, and he sneezes on a daily basis, a few times in the morning...
