Taming a 3 y/o

I just bought a 12 y/o Turquoise male and a 3 y/o female. They live in the same cage and love each other very much. They preen each other and snuggle together all the time. The were aviary birds. The male is very very tame and comes out and spends time with me, however, the female is very wild. I ha...

Housing male & female in large cage

Hello everyone, I have not posted here in a very long time. I have had my Lutino Ringneck for 1 1/2 years now. Still very very tame, never went through the stage of biting etc. I have been thinking about getting a female companion for him. I want to build an outside cage / aviary, but don't know wha...

Ringneck and Cockatiel

I have a Ringneck and a White faced cockatiel and they are best of friends through their cages. In fact as soon as I let the Ringneck out of his cage he wants to go to the Cockatiels cage immediately. He spends hours and hours on top of his cage. I have never tried putting them togther. How large of...

Shoulder

I let both my birds on my shoulder. My cockatiel will fly from his cage to land on my shoulder. My ringneck has clipped wings but he loves to sit on my shoulder. Never had an issue, other than playing with my hoop earrings.

I get them out for about 10 minutes while I change their water, fill their seed/pellet cups and give them fresh veggies. Then back to their cages until I get home about 4:00 pm. Then their cages are ...

Standing on one foot

My IRN has started standing on only one foot when I hold him. Is this normal behavior for these guys? Its mostly when I hold him on my finger. He tucks his right foot up into his feathers and you can't even see it. It isn't hurt because he uses it to climb all over me and his cage. Thanks, Pommeraniac

Okay my guy will not touch fruits or veggies. On occassion he will eat a grape. He loves his Zupreem pellet and his seed mix. Do they need the fresh fruit and veggies?

My baby was only eating a seed mix and minimal fresh veggies every day. I went to the pet store and looked for a pellet and found Zupreem. I filled his cup with that instead of the seed mix and he went crazy. He ate almost the entire bowl. I now keep a cup of the seed mix, a cup of Zupreem Pellets, ...

Refurbishing Cage

Okay I was given a large cage but the paint is chipped in some places and the latch is broken on the door.

Is there somewhere I can order a replacement latch? I don't know the brand of the cage.

Also what paint can I use to repaint it? Is there special paint for bird cages?

Thanks,
