    Hi everyone. I'm a new bird mum and when an opportunity rose just under two weeks ago to have our beautiful Dodi I couldn't resist. He's a gorgeous Pacific Parrotlet. I love him so much. He is 6 months old, his previous owner bought him to train him and then sell on but didn't get round to...

    Hello! I go by Sammy, and I have a new Parrotlet named Cotton. He has been with us for two-three weeks. I do not know how to train him to be on your hand, or not bite when you pick him up. I have read about the gentle beak thing, and I will happily use that. But I still have questions: How do...

    Tofu has had quite the adventure since coming home let me tell ya! She came home with a digestive tract infection and has been on antibiotics and anti fungal from the avian vet for a full week. She went back today for a follow up and gram stain came back totally clear! She does still have a...

    Hiya! So Hiro has been with me since May now. His first month was spent letting him settle in and getting him to stop chewing his feet so often, causing them to bleed etc. (For those of you that don't know, Hiro was rehomed to me after having malformed feet and then further chewing them out of...

    https://goo.gl/photos/JV8eMg59z8hpCWB39 This is Floki, I got him around July time, and the shop he was from didn't give him any toys he was just left with a wooden perch on his own. He was really shy so every time you went near him he would fly frantically around his cage. Slowly but surely...

    Sasha was purchased with a male as 7 week old babies a year & 3 months ago from a Florida breeder who sent them via Delta airlines as potential breeding mates. They were supposedly hand fed but were definitely not hand tame. We kept them together and they were frightened of our hands any time we...

    You'll be amazed at what type of music she will love, and it is a good idea to expose her to all types (if you can stand it) because then she will never be startled by loud noises (Rock Music) or shy but outgoing and loving. Usually play the calmer stuff while she is in snuggled down in her...

    Hi Everyone, I've had some experience years ago with larger parrots, so I'm not a complete novice and I had a budgie (store bought and took me forever to get him hand tame, but he ended up becoming so bonded with me, I couldn't get him off of me). I lost him last month, had no plans to get...
