Accidently teached your ringneck to bite

If i were you i would stop ignoring him after he bites. If he bites your hand then taking your hand away from him is a bad move, this teaches the bird, that if he wants your hand to go away then the way to do this is to bite. if this is the case then you will have to 'un-train' your parrot of it's b...

Re: good size for cage.

does yours have a flip-open top, because i personally really like the cages with an opening dome on the top (thats what the one i've got at the moment is). but anyways, my question is: do you really think it matters if it's a dome top/flip-open top or not, because if it is flip open you have the lux...

yes, you can with some types, but only with 100% paper litters. and even then it's not really that great, and it may safe you money, but it's harder to clean up.
I don't recommend it.

boy, and they might fight for dominance and your attention, or get along.
girl, they might breed and then you end up with babys, which can be hard to take care of.
The 3rd option is get a different species of bird to acompany Ringo, like a lovebird, and less problems would come up.

Before starting to tame your ringneck find out what it's favourite treat is by watching what it goes for first in its treat bowl and remove it from its daily diet so it has to get it directly from you. Now get it's favourite treat and drop it into the cage and take 2 steps bake and wait a minute, if...

car trips with birds can be stressing to them or extremely fun. you will need a small cage for the trip with food and water. how much time it spends in it's cage depends on the bird, if it doesn't take ever-changing surruondings very well, it will get stressed and stay in its cage, if this is the ca...
