Stop sun conure from egg laying and hormonal behavior
Our sweet 12 yr old sun conure laid her first egg.

Finding a friend for my tiel
Hi, my cockatiel is now 6 months old and recently, I’ve brought her on several play dates with other birds/parrots and she seems to be a very social cockatiel who likes interacting with other birds.

It does not seem to hamper her movement, nor have we observed any apparent loss or deterioration of balance, grip strength […]
