1 Replies and 1713 Views Biting bird  1713  1 Started by  JulseyP Hi there I need some urgent help with my Senegal parrot. He Is 3 years old and I got him 3 weeks ago. I'm having a major issue with his biting though. He fractured my collar bone (clavicle) last friday and attacks me every time I let him out the cage. I've read online that if you don't yell or flinch he will get bored and stop doing it but believe me this is not possible with his bites. I'm covered in open wounds and now I'm in a sling too. The only thing I can think of to do is keep him in ...

I have an Amazon Lored parrot, and she has been with us for couple of months and she eats all fresh nuts and vegetables, so I assumed all was going well, but someone said that she should be all green, no yellow feathers at all, and that she could have vitamin A deficiency. I have started giving her vitamin supplements, and hopefully this will help. She came to us with some yellow feathers, I assumed that that was normal! Could someone please give me advice on whether I should be doing ...

5 Replies and 916 Views With great progress comes a few steps back !  916  5 Started by  Kanundra I have to admit, Bobby has stuck in my heart now.  He's really good most of the time. (Most) however, he's now decided he's not scared of me at all.  The last couple of nights he's taken to staying up a little later than usual. 10pm. Where he used to go back into his cage at around 9.30.... not too bad. But he's testing me, he gets on the curtain and tries to eat the wall paper. Which I don't want him too obviously. So eventually after he's taken it a step too far I've stood ...

I am new to looking after parrots and this week has been one hell of a learning curve! Max will now step up, but only step down when he feels like it. He has to be bribed to get him into his cage, but I do have him out for 9 or more hours a day – basically, apart from at night time, if I am in he is out of his cage. He has a couple of periods each day where he i...

3 Replies and 895 Views Cotton towel under paper in cage ok?  895  3 Started by  Nina Hiya,  I have a bird here with cataracts and arthritis. Not the best of combinations, as he flicks his head to see things better, and sometimes he does it a bit to rough so he loses grip due to his arthritis. I am wondering if it is ok to place a thick double folded towel (Egyptian cotton) on top of the grill, underneath the paper to dampen his fall should he take one He also chooses to sleep on the bottom of the cage so it would be a bit softer for him.
