    Can I have 2 budgies and a Turq parakeet in the same cage?

    I recently rescued 3 birds (2 budgies and 1 turquoisine parakeet). They have been living in extremely small cages right next to each other for years. I feel horrible for the Turk as she is all alone and I would love for her to be around other birds (there is nowhere near me to get another turq)...

    Kakariki plucking my turquoisine

    So my Kakariki is now 3 and a half months old. She thinks she owns the place but she's young and learning.

    I brought home my 2 new birds today, but I really don't know much about 1 of them. It is a Turquoisine. He's so tiny and just sits there (he did that even at the breeder's house.) I've always wanted one, and now I have him, but don't know too much about how they are as PETS. All I know is that...

    Miracle after Tiki's death

    A miracle happened today. Fate or coincidence? I think fate. So I found 1 single breeder of Kakarikis in Queens, NY. There are only a few in the United States and they are typically in California (where this breeder actually goes and gets them) and that is after they are imported from New...
