what are the odds?

I have a family flock of yellow IRNs, over the last few months I have acquired some more colors. I now have a turquoise male, a blue(maybe cobalt) male, a grey female, and of course my original yellow pair. I want to try my hand at actually picking out a pair from all these birds and getting somethi...

Re: Teaching Your Bird Survival Skills

Hi, I am a noob here, but this thread caught my eye so I figured Id add my $0.02 :) I have always heard that one of the most important things to teach your bird is how to fly DOWN from a high place. This makes perfect sense, because if you think about it, most pet birds fly in our houses and are at ...

Re: half blue, half green, ish

Medical problems aside, I really like this new bird! He is such a sweetheart, after I give him his drops in his beak he wants to snuggle up for some lovin and attention. He is such a good bird, so friendly and doesnt hold a grudge against me for putting him thru all this. And I just love his color, ...

half blue, half green, ish

Hi there, a few of you may remember me from a few months ago when i had an unexpected mating... Everything went very well with that situation, and because of that, my wife has let me get a new bird! It is a breeder reject, because it has mild scoliosis and has a bit of a crooked spine. But i had it ...

Re: Newby: is it worth it?

Re: Newby: is it worth it?

No worries, I will keep them all. I have the space and the means, so it won't be a problem. If I could not keep them, I would not be doing this. I guess I'm going to have to play it by ear on how these babies are raised, if any even hatch. I do agree with the fact that tame birds are much easier to ...

Re: Newby: is it worth it?

This is actually kind of a fun experience so far, granted i haven't had to do anything yet... I'm thinking that if the eggs hatch and the babies actually survive, I might pick one and hand rear it. I'm really hoping that my pet birds will be good parents, so i wont be forced into hand rearing ALL(if...

Re: Newby: is it worth it?

Ha! I successfully talked my awesome wife into going for it! I pulled the old sympathy ploy- told her that I had to kill the eggs by shaking them up, then waited till she was right there so she would have to see me do it. As soon as I was about to shake the 1st egg, she stopped me, I knew she wouldn...

Re: Newby: is it worth it?

Thanks everybody, all great points! I am going to pull the eggs out, shake them up, and put them back. Once this is all over, Ill remove the nest box. Will this prevent them from breeding again? These are pet birds that are doing this, both handtame and talkers and friendly... It would have been kin...
