Hi!! Thank you for such an informative talk! Since dogs and cats have things like e-collars to prevent them from picking at wounds. What are your best suggestions/recommendations for such things in birds? Especially smaller species like parakeets? Thank you so much for your time!

Will a red lory loose it’s tameness when introduced to a new lorikeet of same sex.
Hi, I have a tamed female red lory which is 10 months old. We usually spend about 2-3 hrs a day outside her cage. But this is going on worse as she demands more attention outside the cage, which we may not be able to put in more than 3 hrs. We thought of introducing […]

Avian CBC and Chemistry Workup
Hi, I was wondering if you could shed some light on what the items in an avian blood workup mean and what they could be indicators of? Especially in conjunction with each other.
