9 Replies and 1233 Views Diet Advice  1233  9 Started by  Vicky Ford I'm bringing up the topic of diet yet again after hoovering up another bowlfull of food from the floor! Cleo our BL Umbrella Too as you can see is beautiful! She has beautiful feathers is very happy and contented but she will not eat her fruit and veg. Obviously I want her to have the best I can give her but am really at the end of the line as to what to try next after going out and buying yet more fruit mix. We have had her for three years now and was told when she came she was not a big eater....

2 Replies and 875 Views Play biting  875  2 Started by  kazky Hi i'm new here, so please forgive me if i have asked this in the wrong area. I have a beautiful CAG called Yvie (don't know the sex) she's now 1 year old and i've had her since she was 18 weeks. She's great fun, but recently i've noticed that she likes to 'play bite'. So she'll sit on top of my computer monitor and then climb down the curtain and hang upside down and hold her leg out for me to pick her up. When i do this she gently steps on my hand and then bites, clearly it's a play bite, ...

8 Replies and 1306 Views Rescued african grey, possibly blind in one eye,. Advice on handeling  1306  8 Started by  K3lly1985 Hello. I'm new to bird line and have recently had my first safe house in. He has a sunken eye, and. Think he's blind in it. If I approach him from that side he can't see me. He lets me feed him, tickle him(after a few friendly nibbles off him) and he likes to talk. He's not attempted to fly, just climbs out his cage and flaps! I want to now the best way to go about handling him. I don't think he can step up, I've tried but he shows no interest. My question is if he's blind I one eye...

9 Replies and 1472 Views Help with my Patagonian Conure - Clinton - please!  1472  9 Started by  Lesley Garratt I'm just wondering whether anyone can give me some advice regarding the Patagonian Conure which we took from Birdline last year.  I absolutely adore her (he is apparently a she!) but unfortunately she hates my husband with a passion, and is very jealous of me.  If she is sitting on my shoulder and my husband tries to have a conversation with me, she screeches loudly and lunges at him.  The only time she is (almost) polite to him is when I am not around, when she will tolerate him....

9 Replies and 1423 Views Desperately need advice!  1423  9 Started by  sammiboo I am desperate for advice.... I posted a few weeks ago that woody (mealy amazon) is hormonal at the minute and is throwing tantrums. I thought I was getting somewhere with him but in the last week or so he seems to have got far worse, he is pinning Jamie and really going for him when he is in flow tantrum flow. He still hasn't bit me but he will attack his toys or food dish with Complete aggression. He does have a tickle but his tantrums are getting worse and I am not sure how to address it....

10 Replies and 1326 Views Warning!  1326  10 Started by  nigel I am sure many will be aware of this but I am also sure that some parrot and indeed any bird keeper may not have given it much thought, personaly I don't think it hurts for a little reminder, whether it's Teflon, candles, open windows etc, this one is particulrly appropriate whilst we have a little warm weather, it's about SPARROW HAWKS!! Today Danny was at work with me as usual, his favourite resting place is in his cage is in the back of my car (estate) with the back door open, it's parked ...

8 Replies and 1024 Views A second opinion?!  1024  8 Started by  Jojo We are looking for another bird to join our family. Sadly, there seem to be very few needy birds on Birdline in our area . We have found a bird advertised as local to us. I emailed the seller asking for more information. I have had quite a long email conversation with them. They have asked all the right questions of us. They are very adamant that they are looking for genuine loving homes. They can't devote enough time and have to go away a lot which is the reason for rehoming. They have ...

While he generally doesn't seem to have problems with eating anything put in front of him, recently I've noticed that he does his level best to not drink water!he doesn't much like having a shower either!! He tries to suck the juice out of any fruit/veg in his cage rather than attempt to drink water. I've tried bottled water, tap water, filtered water but he buries his butt in it then goes in search of fr...

2 Replies and 1021 Views Rescue parakeet  1021  2 Started by  vivsos Hi all, The daughter of a friend of mine is looking for a home for her 2nd bird, a Turquoise Grass Parakeet. She got him as a companion for the parakeet she's had from young. Apparently, he doesn't get on with other birds, doesn't come out of his cage, doesn't like being handled.  I've had a budgie before, but never any other breed of bird. What I'm concerned about is that I don't want to keep a bird caged for the rest of his life and if I let him out of his cage whether I'd be able to g...

He's not hand tame and still quite timid but I really feel I&160;should do something to clear up the pin feathers on his head. He's constantly scratching at them but obviously can't reach to preen them. I've tried picking him up with a glove but he was far too panicky&160;to touch and biting so hard that he was hurting me even through a glove. Is it cruel to just leave him and wait for the pin feathers to grow out&160;Or ...
