    Haven’t been on here for awhile so here’s an update.

    Milo (M) and Skittle (F) have been doing better but we still aren’t fully bonded, Milo will easily and quickly jump onto my hand for millet but not so much for Skittle, she’s still scared of my hands but she goes on my hands a lot more than she used to, I recently got them new friends 2 weeks...

    New bird advice?

    Hello!!!! So, I've had birds in the past, but they weren't tame/ lived in an aviary and I didn't really interact with them very much. The aviary was my parents when I was a child, and when I had my last birds, I was very depressed and didn't take the best of care of them admittedly, and ended up...

    Cinnamon Conure doesn't want to go back into her cage!

    Hey guys :) Papaya, my cinnamon green cheek conure doesn't like going back into her cage after she is let out. I have tried so many different methods such as coaxing her onto a stick, turning off the light and shining a torch inside the cage, and putting her favourite treats inside but she just...

I already have one at home (for a year- without any contact with other birds) The new one has been checked at our local vet and they said he's completely healthy.

    GCC poop is a weird color and looks weird

    I got a green cheek conure 2 days ago and named him melon (he's around 2 months old), he has been active, although not much but I am guessing it's because he's still getting used to the place. I have a few questions about gcc poops 1. Do they poop a lot? Melon keeps pooping a lot, less than 5...

    Hi! It's my first quaker, so I just want to be sure. I got a male quaker (3 yo) some time ago and we're well bonded now. He is a rescue who sat in a cage alone for 2 years straight in his breeders house. He doesn't even consider other bird species and doesn't want have anything to do with...

    New blue and gold macaw hasn’t bathed in a while

    Just yesterday I brought home a blue and gold macaw, Rio. He’s a 4yo sweetheart and he’s really confident and loud. He steps up and gets onto my shoulder but if he’s up too long he starts biting. I was told by the previous owners that he hasn’t had a bath and they’ve been spraying some bath...

    Help Taming

    The budgie I bought back in August is a really tough bird to tame. I've tried taming her the same way I tamed my other bird (who is very close and friendly with me, flies onto my head whenever he pleases, likes kissing, etc.) But that didn't work, so eventually I'd just sit down for hours with...

    Sophie and Solstice (GCCs)

    Hi! I'm relatively new to conures, but I'm having a great time getting to know my green cheeks and their quirky personalities! I acquired Sophie (a yellow-sided green-cheeked conure) about 2.5 months ago. Unfortunately, I recently found out that she has an enlarged heart, but she's getting...

    Territorial Budgie wants cage to himself

    Hi, I’ve had my blue budgie for almost 6 years. He had a cage mate until last year when he passed in the night. Until recently, he has been alone and actually kind of happier without a cage mate. He has a large cage more suited for 3-4 budgies to himself. A few days ago I got a lovely yellow...

When I got him home I opened the cage door and allowed him to move into his new big boy cage, the one he was kept in by...

    Aggressive GCC Not Eating Fresh Foods

    Hi! So, I am completely new to parrots. Two days ago, I got a my first one. He is a 2-3 month old green cheek conure from my local pet store (I named him Alfie). The owner had lowered the price from $600 to $200, because Alfie was an aggressive biter and no one wanted him (He was the only one...
