Re: Charlie, boy or girl? Any guesses.

My IRN "Brett" also looks exactly like Charlie! He/She is a little over 1 year I think. Some days I think that the behaviors indicate a female, others a male? It doesn't matter to me, Brett shares a cage with 2 adult male lovebirds.

Re: I NEED HELP BECAUSE I'M CONFUSED!

This is a great place to get advice. There are so many great experts. I have found a lot of success by remembering that relationships with birds are in some ways like with people but in many ways VERY different. Birds are not like dogs or cats! Trust is important, consistency and routine is key. My ...

Re: clingy!

My bird Brett, (a bit over 1 year), wants and can demand attention when I get home. First thing I do is open the cage-pop him/her on my shoulder-and do my normal routine. We talk, he/she get's stroked and travels around the house. I then get him some goodies (fruit, veggies, today a fruit smoothie) ...

Re: Birdie Beverages

Thank you for this question, I too have wondered this. My IRN loves fresh squeezed juice and our smoothies. Can they smell it as we are squeezing the fruit?

Re: Sprouting Bird Seed

I sprouted regular bird seed. Grew fast but did last in the refrigerator long. I planted some in my garden too. The best is clover and alfalfa sprouts that we eat in our salads too. They sprout fast and last a long time in the refrigerator. I start a new crop every 2 weeks. Sandy *Trying to get a ph...

I have had my new IRN for nearly 2 weeks hanging out in my office, going on walks with "him" and cruising around. Today I had an all day meeting and left "him" in his cage today. Hoooooo was he mad when I got home! I have a cage with 2 lovebirds nearby so "he" wasn't totally alone in the house. Took...
