    What you need to know before you get your parrot.

    To start, I love parrots. I am from Australia, the land of parrots and have grown up seeing wild cockatoos and lorikeets. I now have parrots of my own, all natives; cockatiels, a budgie, princess parrots, a bourke's parrot and currently three crazy galahs I'm fostering. I love having them and...

    Parrots can make amazing pets. But should they even be pets?

    Before I start, please understand I do not want to cause debates. I am not poking fingers at people or trying to make parrot owners feel bad for keeping parrots (I am a parrot owner myself).

    Chick peeping loudly, help!

    My new SLW chick is sooo loud! She’s 2-3 days old now and has an Australorp friend who is near inaudible compared to her. On the first night we had them I decided to put in an old sweatshirt that they could cuddle up against, and that’s been working pretty well for the time being. They sleep in...

    Voice change and excessive fluffing of feathers

    My 6-year-old sex link hen looks to be the same weight and she is not missing feathers. We have recently lost her flock mates so she is alone for the time being (I am working on getting her a friend ASAP).

    Buff suddenly screaming

    One of our Buff Orpingtons has started screaming throughout the day. It has been going on for a week. She is walking around the run, not acting broody by staying in a nesting box. Every few minutes she will just give out one loud yell. We have ten chickens and none has acted like this before...
