i have a travel cage that can be hooked up to the seat belt i have water and food containers in the cage to. i was just wondering if it would be better to keep the cage covered or would it be better to let him see out by leaving one of the covers down. the cage has 3 covers to let him see out of but if i let him see stuff would he get car sick would he be stress and start yelling during the car. or would it be better to cover the cage making hi think it was sleeping time. idk what’s the best option here

anyone who thinks of getting a bird, (not just conures) if you dont clean a lot or have asthma then think again about adopting. birds are really dusty

1 bird, two months of no dusting

Alarm Clock Review—Jenday model

I’ve had this alarm clock for just over five years, and always found it quite effective, even from the opposite side of the apartment. On advice from the Alarm Clock Maintenance professional, we recently set up a space for it in the bedroom and discovered some new functionality.

Extra Sounds Gets an extra star just for the sheer impressive variety of noises the alarm clock has learned to make with what amounts to a few bars of metal and some wood (the bedroom space is very stripped back compared to the daytime space/s). Perhaps if the quality of the instrument were higher, or the time of day were not 3am, more stars would be warranted. (2/5 stars)

Motion Sensor Extremely sensitive—you can’t wriggle your feet in bed without the movement being sensed. Loses a star due to the interaction with the ”extra sounds” feature rated above. But before 3am it usually just says “bedtime”, which is a very helpful reminder. (4/5 stars)

Physical Wake Up Alarm Since the bedtime space does not have locks, we are able to make use of the clock’s physical alarm feature, where at precisely 6:20am it removes itself from the space, pecks my face, and threatens to poop on the bedsheets. Possibly the most effective wake up alarm I have owned. Never fails to get me shooting out of bed. (5/5 stars)

Overall, an effective—if slightly overreactive—alarm clock with a very cute design. Somewhat high maintenance, but packed with features (I haven’t even mentioned all the daytime features, such as water drinking reminders and toilet paper QA testing). 6/5 stars.

Conure acting weird

Hey guys I’ve never been an owner of any pet, let alone bird and a few nights ago this conure flew on my friends hoodie and we took him in. He has a silver tag on his left foot and is showing behavioral signs of abuse ( scared of open hands, very nervous when around people, aggressive, bites, tries to spill water or food we give him ). We have been trying to be social and play with him all we can. We don’t know the gender of the bird but we know he’s probably around 3 or 4 years old.

Getting a Conure

Okay I'm getting a "baby conure" on the 15th of july (will be around 2months old when I get him) and I just wanted to ask how do I care for it the best? I have an experience with small birds but not any medium ones

Textbooks about parrot health issues and such?

This is my first parrot and I love her to death being a doctor I worry over every move she makes and Im really hungry to learn more about thier biology and pathology. Where do I start ? Any recommended textbooks from fellow aviary doctors?

My conure's beak has been like this since I got it from petsmart 2 weeks ago.

Is this normal?

Upgrade for Coco!

On the left, the cage that came with Coco when I got her and where she spent her entire 2 year life until now. It had dowels only, so we immediately added perches shown in the photo. And her new upgrade on the right. She seems pretty content with her new home. I've kept the small cage for sleep and and travel.

My conure spoke..

I have had my conure poncho for about a month now, my previous post said he became really attached to me and scream to want to be on my shoulder.

Today I let him on my shoulder and he was trying to touch my ear and I would say “No Poncho, No ear” and he then started “vibrating” his head and kept repeating a noise that sounded like he was “meowing”. But he only repeated it when I said “no ear”.

It is barely audible, but he was repeating “No” back to me, and when I told him he had to go back to the cage so we could eat he made the “no” sound again.

Before he went back to the cage I kept repeating no at him and he was saying it back… He then got mad and let his raptor instincts kick in and bit my fiance because he didn’t want to go back to the cage while we ate.

So he now uses “No” as sass when he doesn’t want to do something, even though he’s not very good at saying the word.

Size differences

Hey! So about a month ago I went to a breeder and got a female GCC. Today, a month and a day later, my neighbor went and got one of her sisters that actually hatched 2 days after. Hers is HUGE! Bigger head, bigger body, head feathers don’t seem so smooth like my girls are. She looks a slight bit overweight but even when I got mine, she wasn’t a thick chunky little thing! Is this normal? They only had one male and he was spoken for already so I know she wasn’t switched up with a male when sexing them. But goodness, the size difference is insane to me. If I were to compare the difference it would be normal budgie to English budgie. When I picked my female, all of them seemed around the same size but not this much of a difference!
