Frisky Male Lovebird
Spring is here and my male lovebird is now wriggling himself on soft “protruding” surfaces. This goes on for a while until he chirps, stops, and then pants heavily for a few minutes. He may repeat another one or two times in a row. Is it okay to leave him alone and let him continue […]
My 17 year old cockatiel typically has few or no behavioral or feeding issues during moulting, but this year is a little off her usual food preferences. Is there a supplement I could give him to help?

Quaker sitting on cage bottom
My Quaker female (20 yrs old) has just started sitting on the cage floor. She doesn’t seem to be doing anything. But for some reason it bothers me, as this is a new behavior.

My cockatiel was a rescue from an attack in a park. She has been with us 6 weeks. She is happy but won’t come near my hand/finger. She’s been in the same 80cm square cage for 6 weeks. Should I let her out inside for a fly. She’s happier when the cage door is closed.

Why is my mourning dove is laying in her food dish?
My bird is 11 years old (probably more, I got her when I was 5 years old). She’s an Albino Mourning dove. I think this may be because she’s trying to mate, but I don’t completely know. She had a mate before; but they had eggs, that only one hatched. So she went ballistic, killed […]
