Why does Heaven do this little dance around Echo? It’s so funny but does it means something?

Do you trim your bird's nails yourself or take him to the vet? What's less stressful?

Where to purchase bird safe vet wrap?

I’m looking to get some vet wrap to cover my bird’s rope perches that are fraying. It seems like Amazon has a lot of choices but how do you tell if it is bird safe? I’m worried about her chewing on it. If you use vet wrap where have you gotten yours and what brand is it?

My brat birb

Flew up onto my shoulder when I was letting the dogs out and then just took off, and was gone for THREE hours. He didn't go far, I could hear him the whole time, and I would periodically go out and call him. I even walked around the block and figured out which neighbor's yard he was in. Finally I was out in the back yard and he comes flying back, lands on my shoulder and asks for a treat like nothing happened! It's been years since he's done that.

Hey everyone, it's my first post here, and I'm the proud father of a wonderfully mannered, beautiful, seven month old green cheeked conure named Tengu!

I think my baby may be poisoned? Help?

So my conure was sitting on my shoulder as I was getting a mint (like a tic tac), and snatched it right out of my hands. Spent the last five minutes trying to chase him down (he gets territorial about food) and finally got the mint out of his mouth. He licked it a bit, but thankfully didn’t get into it too much. In hindsight, the tablet was green and I should have been more careful. Now I’m a bit freaked out as to whether or not this could have poisoned my little baby? Anyone know about menthol or mint toxicity and what I should do? Like I said, he only licked it a bit as I was chasing him down for the most part for those few minutes he had it. He’s currently on time out in his cage, and has plenty of water (don’t really wanna force him to drink it with a syringe unless it’s dire straits)

Need help

I have a 5 month old conure and my wife has various birds.

A month ago we went abroad and so her family watched over the birds altogether. Her birds weren't social but my conure was (she had a sibling but died while we were abroad).

Due to this my inlaws put the my conure with the other bird as she was showing signs of depression from the loss.

Now Ive picked her up and she refuses contacr with me. If I take her to my room she calls out for the other birds and panicks.

Is it possible for me to retrain her to be more social with me? If I leave her with the other birds and try to interact with her she copies the other birds and flies away refusing to even eat apple slices (her favourite) from my hand like she used to. But if I isolate her she starts calling out to the other birds and they call put to her (budgies and cockatiels).

Any help is appreciated... im a little heartbroken that shes like this.
