    Hair dye on bird? Any help?

    So I was dying my hair and my partner opened our conures cage to give him a treat and do some of his before bed training, and he flew straight to my head! His feet got covered in my hair dye, and a few of his feathers too. We had no idea what to do, I took him straight to the shower and started...

    Cage modification?

    I'm not sure if this is even something to worry about but better safe than sorry right? Our GCC nearly always throws food around, which isn't a problem of itself, but he doesn't have anything at the bottom keeping him from eating old food. I clean his cage every 3 or 4 days, but I'm paranoid...

    What would you do?

    Very true lol I had meant to take out insurance for the Rosella but I totally forgot :( we have insurance for our conure though, so that's less of a worry, we'll be okay, just a stressfuuuuul time 😔

    What would you do?

    Thank you everyone for your advice ♥ we decided to go ahead with the autopsy and they said it was aspergillus, a fungal infection that had progressed far enough to form a tumor... They said he'd most likely had it for many months and wouldn't have survived even if he'd made it through the first...

    What would you do?

    Hi everyone, I've posted about this recently, but we lost our Rosella Mally a few days ago. I'm still in shock and I don't think it's fully sunk in, but me and my partner are having a lot of trouble deciding whether to get an autopsy. We don't have much money, the vet bills and cremation costs...

    General behaviour changes?

    Hi everyone, just wanted to give an update, not good news :( We managed to get him to the vet this morning, due to COVID we weren't allowed to come inside with Mally. But when we got him there the vet immediately said mally seemed anemic, no weight on him, and no energy, and that he basically...

    General behaviour changes?

    Thank you @CaptainHowdy & @DizzyBlue , definitely taking him to the vet asap, he's been like this for a few days, but I also noticed his poop was a lot more watery too, just need to get a carrier for him and make an appointment! Will definitely update ASAP, and thank you for the suggestion...

    General behaviour changes?

    Wanted to add another clip of how he sits, we're still worried, but planning to get a vet appointment soon, as the change really worries me 😩

    General behaviour changes?

    Here's a small video Of how he's breathing, it takes a few seconds to focus properly. To me it just seems he might be too hot, and he's very particular about how/when he baths so he doesn't cool himself down too often. Thanks for the help!

    General behaviour changes?

    We haven't had the chance to disease test the Rosella, and the conure we adopted from a charity that told us he was disease tested before going to his temporary home, where he was just before we took him in. The Rosellas breathing is like this nearly all the time, personally to me it just seems...

    General behaviour changes?

    Hello again everyone! It feels like I'm always asking for advice here 😂 my partner is very worried about our Rosella as he's been behaving strangely since we added a conure to our flock. Personally I think he's just become more reserved since the conure has a much more dominant personality. But...

    Wall protection?

    Thank you! I'll keep an eye out, and probably move then to another room for the day when we paint anyway :)

    Wall protection?

    OOOOH, do you know what brand of paint you used? I'm also living rented currently, and definitely looking into perspex, but if I can get a washable paint that works well I might do that! Thanks!

    Wall protection?

    That's what I have currently, but I'm hoping to get something more long term and nicer looking 😂 there's some good suggestions here that I'm gunna try out!

    Wall protection?

    Hi everyone! I'm sure everyone's dealt with this before, but I'm having such an issue with the babies making a mess of the wall behind their cages 😂😭 it mostly only happens when they're eating fruit, like berries and strawberries and all that jazz. It's just frustrating because I can't wipe...
