    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...

    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...

    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...

    Garp Wages War On Running 1

    It is a standing joke in our house that Garp doesn't like me to exercise. Here she is standing guard over my running shoe, which she does on a regular basis: If you wear running shoes around her it's a sure-fire way of getting dive-bombed in a full-on kamikaze attack. You have to walk like...

    Retching Bird

    Help! Garp has just been on an antibiotic for a few days. Tonight I gave her some white sunflower seeds for a treat and she has been retching like crazy but not vomiting ever since. Really worried. Her poop looks normal and she does not look sick. She has never been a regurgitator. What's going on?

    Garpy Going Strong

    So little Garp got sick with Salmonella for the first time in January. We went through a nightmarish time where she relapsed several times and went through no less than four hospital visits where she was in ICU on a drip. The vet said she was not allowed to stay on antibiotics for more than 7...
