    Help sexing aibino parakeet

    It's male. All young males have a pink or purple cere. Albinos etc like this will stay pink for life, while other mutations turn royal blue.

    They're all domestic, as the only wild pigeons live on the sea cliffs off the coast of Europe. Even the most boring blue bar bridge-dwelling pigeon is not like a wild bird, it's descended from domesticated captive animals, like a feral dog. And like a feral dog, it can survive by itself, but not...

    He did the absolute worst option. Didn't get the bird medical treatment, didn't give it a quick and humane death, didn't even let the predator eat it. Left a severely injured domesticated animal to die of exposure or starve or be mauled hours later, suffering all that time. I wonder what would...

    Basics for House Pigeons

    I have never used them, but recently read the benefits and will be ordering one. It may be less important for birds that eat mostly formulated pellets and get regular vitamin D via diet but Olive, though she does eat some pellets, probably isnt getting enough.

    Basics for House Pigeons

    Provide grit, but don't worry if they don't eat much. I keep a cup of mixed grit in my bird's cage, but she hasn't eaten any since I think last July when she laid eggs last and was craving minerals. She's obviously able to digest her food anyway.

    How much space does a button quail really need?

    No I argued the same but was basically told this is the wrong way to think, contributes to animal abuse, and then banned from posting in the community... My bird now has 4.7 square feet and I have still been told it's too small...

    Zebra finch (male) chasing other finches around

    Zebra finch are so aggressive, they really need to be caged in separate pairs, they can easily kill other birds.

    Basics for House Pigeons

    One bird is recommended as an indoor pet if someone is home most of the time. Two birds will not bond strongly to a caretaker in the same way. I've taken to feeding Petco's dove seed mix this year without issue, but I also feed Zupreem naturals parakeet pellet food. An indoor bird that doesn't...

    How much space does a button quail really need?

    Posting on a pet forum, I was told that anything less than 4 x 2 x 2 feet is inhumane. I was called out as cruel, ignorant, and neglectful for having a pet quail indoors in a bird cage about 30 inches long and told by several people to give my bird away to someone who won't abuse it. I found...

    Keep your birds indoors if you are upset over hawks. You won't lose any. Pheasants are native to China! They aren't even supposed to live in North America.

    Anyone still care about Olive? We've had her a couple years now, and she is everyone's best friend. Always come when called, knows her name.

    It only works with a single chick, even a brood of three were impossible to tame.
