    Hi if you post in the main forum under the housing section you will likely get more assistance @Quackinbush

    @Quackinabush A cage of the Rainforest Bolivia or Georgia would be best the Georgis being more spacious.
  4. Koyshik @ Koyshik:
    I have a jenday conure, her age is 8 months, yester night by mistake she consumed HONEY. There is no changes in its behaviour but i herd honey is extremely harmful for birds. Can any one suggest me What do i do now.
  5. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    @Koyshik if its raw honey ie straight from the hive unpasturised it can contain botulism. Normal honey from the shop shelf is pasturised so ok. Mine have a little now and then but it does make them hyperactive. The small amount your bird has consumed more than likely a little nibble wont hurt it.
  6. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Thanks @Michael Reynolds spammer banned
  7. @ Aaronjsb:
    New to this website so please bear with. I have just bought an african grey that is now 10 years old. She is still getting used to her new surroundings and is still quite shy. However, when it comes to bathing her does anyone have any tips in doing so? She wont come out the cage. I would like to give her a good clean but i dont know how to approach it. Thanks :)
  8. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Hi and welcome. Use a spray bottle on fine mist spray upwards above your bird so it can decide to have a bath it will either move away as it doesnt want to or start to enjoy it. It has to be up to the bird.
  9. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Be patient sometimes all the newness takes time and your bird needs to settle. I hope you purchased it with cites paperwork to go with it
  10. @ Aaronjsb:
    Hi thanks for the message back. I have all paperwork here. I just want to make sure that she feels comfortable in her new home. She is trying to bite as well, the previous owner had stated that he didnt know why this was the cage. Could it be because its a new envirovment?
  11. @ Aaronjsb:
    Case*
  12. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Everything is strange new sounds new routine new humans it will take time to build trust just dont push things have patience it could take a while
  13. @ Silent:
    Whats a good way of getting rid of those small flies that tend to gravitate towards chop, I've got a ton and can't use fly spray or fly paper so I have a crap ton of them and no way to get rid of them
  14. @ Aaronjsb:
    Again, I have another question. In terms of feeding. Anyone able to tell me what times and what i should be feeding my african grey? I have the pellets at hand, however should i be making her a small blow of veg in the morning? Then put pelletts in for her to enjoy the rest of the day? One more thing, i have got her a forage toy which i filled with nuts. However she is eating the nuts from the toy instead of her food. Can someone help me please!
  15. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    If you write a post in the main forum everybody can help you. The flies are fruit flies you need to check your house plants and clear away any spoiled fruit. Food should always be available along with clean water at all time. Was the bird fed pellets before you got it? Nuts are way more yummy than pellets offer a human child a choice of either a bar of chocolate or a cooked meal most kids choose the chocolate soooo pellet or a nut hmmm i want the nut!
  16. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    By the way i was answering you both at the same time :)
  17. @ Aaronjsb:
    Thank you, even if the pellets sre there and there are no nuts in sight she wont eat.
  18. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Was she fed pellets before she may not know what they are! Starving is not good get some good quality seed mix for her like Deli Nature no61 or 64 from Garden Feathers if you ring them up they will help you with the best mix for her.
  19. @ bettyB00:
    I was pressured into rehoming my bird to a rescue thinking it was the right thing to do but it wasnt. I need her back and the rescue have blocked me. My husband signed the papers and i was her owner. Can i do anything to get her back? I am broken i dont even know how she is
  20. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Legally no as you signed their paperwork gifting them to the rescue if you signed the papers, if proof of ownership is in your name then yes you can and your hubby would be classed as stealing them....
  21. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    If your determined to look into it legally then you can only seek solicitor advice let them read paperwork signed. Cant understand why they would block you unless things have gotten out of reasonable control.
  22. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Think you will find that the paperwork will be classed as a contract of ownership same as a bill of sale. If however you purchased the bird(s) and have proof of that your husband was not the legal owner and that contract unless he has legal documentation giving him power of attorney of your financial affairs its null and void and classed as theft.
  23. @ bettyB00:
    Thank you
  24. Michael Reynolds @ Michael Reynolds:
    If you had been present when your husband signed the documents to pass the bird over to the charity then you will have no chance of winning your case, How long ago did this happen? As with any contract there is a cooling off period when either party can withdrew from it so how long was it before you notified them that you wanted your bird backbut then the charity will have the rite to charge you any expenses
  25. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    There is no cooling off period for the "seller/bequeather" just the "buyer/receiver"
