- Please do not argue. Discussion is acceptable, but do not get rude if someone has a different opinion than yours.
- DO YOUR RESEARCH! Please do not answer a question or give advice for something you are not educated on.
- Do not come here asking for medical advice!! Seek an avian vet near you instead.
- Feel free to share pictures of your cute birdies and their habitats!
- Understand that even very experienced owners will want advice from others when handling a new or strange situation with their birds. Do not think that they should 'just know' because they've had many years of experience. Everyone wants another persons opinion sometimes.
- Try to give as much detail as possible when describing a potential parrot behavioral or training issue, it helps to know what all is going on. (Try to discuss how often they get outside of cage, if they are tame, if they are flighted, what they eat, etc.)
- Do NOT post any pictures of your bird with any other species of animal. This can be very dangerous and on this forum it is strictly not allowed. Please be very careful with your fids!(:

Hey guys, I guess I'll kick this new thread off by saying hey, I'm Cat;; ! I own a male 1.5 year old lovebird named Nash and work/volunteer at a parrot rescue where we have about 40 birds ( including finches and budgies and stuff so it's not as crazy as it sounds. ) I have had parrot experience for 10+ years! I also have a foster Lovebird, named Dory

Here is Nash-

and here is Dory-
Image

Nash is very mischievous, and loves to get into things he's not supposed to! He spends his days eating, screaming, and flirting with Dory, who is kept in a separate cage. He is 1 year and about 5 months old, and I have had him since he was 3 months old. He has changed so much in color, attitude in size since when I first rescued him from a horrible pet shop, where he was kept in a cage the size of a large toaster. He loves quinoa and sweet potato, and takes baths all the time. He knows how to spin in a circle, and how to wave with his foot on command!

I got Dory in June of 2016 as a foster parrot. She is about 4 years old, and her training and taming is coming along very nicely! She was parent raised, and I am her first home so it has been a challenge to get her to trust me! She makes really weird noises ( compared to other lovebirds ) and was sat on as a baby by her parents, so her legs are sprayed... but this doesn't stop her from being mobile and flying around! She loves millet, and sitting on my head!

Nash and Dory are both recall, and clicker trained as well as flighted fully! They love their life and I am so happy I can get them to trust me as much as I do! If any of you have questions about getting your parrot clicker trained, recall trained, or just safely flighted in general please let me know! All of these things can be achieved with any bird and can be practiced to ensure a healthy and happy bird in your home(:

Welcome to the chat Satan!

Wow, 10 budgies in the past? All at once or over time? and 4-5 years is great for a finch, I bet they're very happy!(:

Hey everyone! My username is HarryGryffindor. I don't own any birds but I would really like to. I am here because... well... I love birds! I have a cottage in P.E.I and there was this one crow that just sort of hung around so we named him Charly.

Welcome to the thread everyone!

@satan WOW I have never seen a finch hand tame like that before... We have 3 finches but they are so scared of us that's just amazing how he sat on your finger like that!

@harry welcome and thats so neat. Birds are great companions and a great pet to have ( honestly better than a dog in my opinion LOL ). If you were to get one what type of bird would it be?

@huuuuuuh What type of bird is it? (:
