    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...

    Please help! My solo female Great Billed Parrot is about to lay her third clutch of unfertilized eggs since May and I'm getting worried about her health.

    Jenday suddenly bites, shows aggression. How to stop this?

    I have two green cheek conures— Louie and Mango. I’m pretty sure Louie is male and Mango is female.

    Hello everyone! My male IRN baby often does this displaying behavior where he puts his wings into a heart shape, and does some crazy eye-pinning. He also regurgitates sometimes. He started doing this 2-3 days ago. Is it normal for birds to act like this at such a young age?
