    Is the beak a safe zone for scritches?

    My video of Fifi getting scritches: I have a rescue quaker parrot, Fifi, who only lets me pet/give her scritches on the top of her beak. Her beak was injured and is currently growing back, so I’m sure it’s an extra sensitive area to touch— especially considering how sensitive the upper beak...

    Screaming

    So I have had my quaker parrot Boogie for about 4 months now and it’s definitely nothing like I expected. She bonded with me almost immediately which was great but she is aggressive towards my other bird, in hindsight I definitely should’ve done more research and now I think the birds not...
