    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?

    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?

    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?

    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...

    Is this something to be concerned about?

    I am really worried about this behaviour, is it normal? I've attached a video, of our Rosella Mally, he's never done this before, and I'm just trying to be safe. He makes no noises while doing this, and eats fine (I gave him a nut after this and he just ate it like usual). Is this something to...

    Introducing two birds and biting?

    So we just adopted an addition to our flock 😂 we've added Natsu, a green cheek conure. He's pretty tame, the people safe housing him even said he could try harness training soon! He's beautiful and sweet and so far has been super cuddly with me and it's only the second night we've had him...

    Foot biting?

    Just wondering if this is normal or a cause for concern, I personally think it's just grooming? But the more my partner worried the more I get worried about it, my partner said he's only ever seen him do it to his right foot but I haven't been keeping track myself :( is this something I should...

    Adding another to the flock?

    So I already have a Rosella, and I've made good progress with him over the months we've had him. But the most he'll do with me or my partner is landing on us for treats. My partner had his heart set on a cute parrot that would love us 😂 so I feel so bad that I want to keep our Rosella, I don't...

    Small celebration for some progress

    I wasn't sure where to post this 😂 me and Mally, our Rosella, have made some progress recently. Finally managed to get him to land on my hand for certain treats :) it's only for brief moments but sometimes he'll linger, one time he bit me then walked up my arm before zooming off again 😂 Here...

    How to recognize behaviours?

    I have a Rosella, but I'm finding it very difficult to realize what his different behaviours mean. One thing he does is pacing, up and down perches mostly, but he does this in and out of the cage, and i can't find a common factor of when/why he does this. Another thing is he started dipping his...

    Losing interest too fast?

    Hi! So i have a Rosella, and i worry that they're getting bored :confused: their cage currently has a larger chewing toy (yellow rope and different coloured blocks) and at first they were all over it for days, but now they hardly ever chew on it. He also has a ball shaped rope toy to chew on...

I recently took in a rescue, my colleague said her husband found the bird in an abandoned house, in a cage, no idea for how long though- A blue Rosella. She said she did her best to...
