    My baby, Jellybean, has experienced some crazy beak growth. The first pic (in the coconut) was in August. The other picture was today (2/18/18). She has lots of toys, a cuttlebone, rough perches, etc. She seems to be eating ok, but I’m starting to worry now that I’ve compared pictures at can...

    Hello, I have two parrotlets. Rosy a beautiful untame yet sweet and loving girl and Bebe a very aggressive tame boy. I keep them separate however some times Bebe will get onto her cage and starts a fight (she is in the cage and he is outside). Rosy has been hurt twice now, first he got her foot...

    So, Flint has black hairs on both sides of her cere. They look like teeny tiny eye lashes. They've seen to have kept growing. he doesn't noticed them / no bother her.

    So I bought a pair of parrotlets off of someone on kijiji, when I got them home I took a closer look at the male and he seems to have something wrong with his beak. If anyone could give me some Input that would be great :)

    Does anyone know how to trim their birds beak? I can tell where it needs to be trimmed to, but i've never done it before.... Kiwi's beak has a tendency to get overgrown, and it looks like it is harder for her to use.

    I'm concerned with my Parrotlet because his beak seems to be starting peal on both sides? (At least I think :confused:) He is 4 months old and I am really concerned. He is my first Parrotlet I've ever owned so I am not sure if this is normal. He also doesn't bite on the cage so I don't think...

    I got a p'let from my cousin's friend. He was with her for 2 years, and apparently learned to step up in the cage. She did have to capture him when he got out, and she has grabbed him many times. He was given to another person for a short time who also let him out, let him fly into a mirror (it...

    I just noticed how oddly long my Malibu's beak was getting. He has cuttlebone in his cage but is thoroughly uninterested. I was just making sure that it's alright if his beak seems unnaturally long? Also, his toenails seem a little too long, like they may be getting in the way of him walking...
