    Pionus screaming

    Hey guys! I got a 6 month old hand raised pionus, Kiko, about 2 weeks ago. He’s a really nice parrot, I already adore him, but he screams…a lot. It started after 2/3 days after bringing him home and has gotten worse ever since. He only screams when he’s out of his cage. Its a loud honking...

If he still seems to want to...

    Reguritating??

    Can anyone shed some light on why my baby is attempting to regurgitate on me? Maui is only 10months old and has been home for slightly over a week now.

    Help! My female eclectus is aggressive and won't come out!! ):

    About a week ago my female ekkie started becoming very cage aggressive, and refuses to come out for me. Whenever I approach her cage, she leaps onto the food bowl in the back corner and crouches down into attack mode. ): She usually comes right out for me, or if she doesn't want to she just...
