    Looking For Good Home For Crimson Bellied Conure Pair

    You have my sympathy. I had to rehome a beautiful pair of ring necks for same reason. they were driving my husband mad, and I have to admit they were relentless and it did not matter how much entertainment, enrichment they had . sometimes with the best will in the world the birds are not right...

    Chicken Coop Wanted

    look at dog kennels, large rabbit hutches.and wendy houses they are often a lot cheaper then chicken houses and have bonus of not infected with red mite/disease. a run is easy enough to knock up yourself out of a roll of wire and some lath wood.

    Bark

    bark is viewed as highly dodgy for chickens due to its habit of going mouldy underneath so I would think also unsuitable for aviary birds.

    Nelly Dog

    our lovely girl is gone. the anti seizure drugs worked well for 8 days, and then they did not. we were fortunate to find a vet who specialises in at home euthanasia who was kindness personified. Nelly had a very bad night Sunday, thankfully yesterday Monday had rallied and was happy again but...

    Splayed Legs

    Wednesday 24th July

    thank you DizzyBlue. will get some . thats very helpful advice. I'm feeding her little and often as the heat is not helping (we are doing things to keep her cool) and I think a large meal would make her uncomfortable. her appetite is undiminished and aside from getting tired/panting very...

    How To Cool A Hot Gcc

    Seagull Takes Dog

    the dog may well have weighed only about 1.5 kg. some of these little dogs are scary small, was said to be only 9 inch tall. was it wearing a collar/harness.. ? that would be easy to grab. regarding lifting power birds can be very strong - I was once in garden and had a rat dropped from a great...

    Looking For Formula

    cut it would be what I would do. one feed a day is not enough to keep a bird alive if it is really dependant on formula so the bird is clearly managing to eat enough over rest of day -and is capable of eating. I don't like using it longer then needed- always possibility of warm hand feed being...

    Black Headed Caique Loosing Balance

    mark toys, food dishes etc with cage number so as each cage only ever gets its own equipment back. I do this as a matter of routine with poultry as have a number of pens and do not want any passing germs to have chance to spread . likewise each cage should have its own cleaning cloth/sponge...

    Black Headed Caique Loosing Balance

    would it alter how they are kept or medicated? if the answer is no then I can see no point in testing at present.

    Black Headed Caique Loosing Balance

    I would ask for a trial of the drug, say a week and see for yourself if helps or not. some things that are marked as ineffective are ineffective over a large number but odd patient responds well so worth a go.
