    Safflower Seeds?

    My little Meyers will do anything for safflower seeds. She also loves to forage and have found many places in her cage to hide these little seeds to keep her busy. I probably hide about 10 in her cage and she has so much fun finding them, but I don’t want her to gain weight as well. How much...

    Should I Switch Their Cages?!

    I have a 1 1/2 yr old green cheek conure that I've had for about nine months now, and she is currently housed in a 22"x24"x35" Prevue Hendrix cage. She has been in this cage since I've owned her, and she seems to like it (though she doesn't seem to make use of all that space!). She is a pretty...
