  8. @ BernadetteReilly:
    Hi All! Its been some time that iv been active on this group! Since i rescued my blue fronted amazon. Well i had thought it was going good for the first 2 to 3 weeks, he let me scratch his head, he was taking food from my hand. All of a sudden hes done a 360 and just in "attack mode" anyone that walks past his cage he jumps at you as if he wants to bite you. I struggle everyday to give him his food because he just wants to bite me. My heart is broken and i really thought we were bonding.
  9. @ BernadetteReilly:
    Hes been acting up for the last 2 months i would say. Iv spoken to a few experts and come to the conclusion that perhaps he feels safe and protecting his "domain" judging from where he came from to now.. hes definitely spoilt!!! Iv gotten him into routine, give him his regular showers which he loves, he loves his birdie bread. Iv done everything and i dont know what iv done wrong here
  10. @ BernadetteReilly:
    Iv been really patient thus far... and now im really questioning myself and if im doing an injustice by keeping him? Perhaps he would be better off not being a pet bird and be with birds his own kind... i really dont know what to do. Im now considering rehome him but not to a family that wants him as a pet, it wont work and he will get passed onto the next person. I wont allow that.
  11. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    @BernadetteReilly its all transferred into the behaviour folder for you @Roz is already there to help you :)
  12. @ Ivelina Ozgur:
    Hi ,everyone! I would like to buy baby Sun conure-hand reared from Licensed Breeder for Sun Conures in U.K.
  13. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Hi and welcome. @Ivelina Ozgur hmmmm licensed the breeders aren't licensed as they don't need to be. What you really need is a known recommended breeder who disease tests the parents. If you make a post in the breeding and babies folder also state which end of the country you are. I will say you have chosen one of the loudest conure breeds i hope your home is detached.

  15. @ Badong2388:
    Hi, can anyone help me please, i have male derbyan parakeet and a female moustache parakeet, can they pair up? Or breed? Hope someone can help me. Thank you:flying:
  16. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Hi and welcome can they bond yes most certainly and yes they can produce hybrid chicks the question should always be why would you want to? Hybrids are rare but worthless and can have lots of issues better to breed pure as mother nature intended
  17. @ Badong2388:
    Hi dizzyblue! Thank you for the information you gave. I have a female moustache and super tame, had it since 4weeks old, and now she laid eggs without a male.
  18. @ Badong2388:
    I bought a male today and just realised that it’s a derbyan and not moustache. Got confused with their looks! Really hard to find a male moustache and I make a really mistake for not checking before buying him.😞
  19. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Never mind doesnt mean to say they will breed and rear could be excellent company for each other your hen was hand reared and hand rears rarely breed sooooo not everything is lost
  20. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    @Badong2388 try posting on forum rather than this chat box more people will be able to reply
  21. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    One of our moderators DianaT used to be a breeder and still keeps a couple as pets
  22. @ Emerald:
    Jardine’s
  23. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Hi @Emerald search icon is top right of your screen press the little magnifying glass button what information do you require about the species?
  24. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Hi @Emerald noticed you found what you were looking for and asked moderator @JackAndRob sure he will answer when he's free
  25. @ JohnWestray:
    Thank you
