    Broken Trust with my Budgie

    Hello! I have a Budgie named Blair, who if I must say, is an INCREDIBLY stubborn bird. :D When I first got her it took several months until she began to trust me, and we bonded very closely. She would fly up to me, sit on my head, try and eat my hair, it was lovely (except from the hair thing)...

    Update 😔

    I had to leave home, so I left him there, my mother came at night and she picked him up, he didn't resist or do any noise, it was late, what does that mean? I'm afraid 😞 (He was out all day everyday, playing with me, being on my shoulder etc. And today this happened.) (For those who don't know...

    HELP! I have two Parrotlets!

    I have two Parrotlets that are brothers. I bought them together in the shop and they've been in a cage together ever since (they come out together too).

    Should I Be Concerned?

    Since my orange winged amazon began warming up to me, I've noticed a consistent behaviour. When I lie down on my bed to either watch something, nap, and especially when I'm ill, she flies over and perches on my arm near my head, she then continuously flaps her wings and fluffs her feathers...

    Today my 18 week old baby Indian ring neck parrot had what I believe to be a seizure, she fell off her perch wings out and head tucked under her wing and was as you could say vibrating on the floor of her cage.
