    Mareks in other avian species?

    Does anyone know if there is any research on mareks in psittaciformes? Has anyone had anecdotal experience with this?

    Single Female Cockatiel is Broody? Need Advice!!

    Hello! I have a 4 yr old single female named Opal, who I'm fairly sure is broody? Lately, she's been being very...

    Rescue Conures: how to socialize?

    Hello friends, I have recently acquired 2 rescue conjures, Boo and Mango. I have zero information on them, except they belonged to a woman who passed, and they were sold at an animal auction to someone I know. The person who gave them to me didn't handle them at all. When I met the birds a...

    Toys for quail???

    So I have quail, and would getting parrot toys without the perch work to keep them happy? I know they can’t perch, but what toys are there for quail and does anyone have ideas? From all i’ve seen, they just like to play with string and roll things around, so would parrot toys(maybe slightly...

    Best parrot?

    I love having my chicks just sit and perch on me but I dont think they'll be quite as willing (or small) to do it as they get older. Also they probably wouldn't be able to come inside. So I was thinking about looking into parrots. I already have research under my belt from previous years but I...

    Cockatoo Bite Advice?

    I've had a U2 for about 6 years. He is a rescue and I am not his first owner. Overall, he's a good bird, but sometimes he will bite that (seems) so come out of nowhere. He is very playful and typically in very good spirits, but every 4-6 months, I'll get a very aggressive bite. I don't react...
