  1. Good bye my friend until we meet again...

  2. Thanks for that emergency update. Appreciated~~~
  3. In the New Year, never forget to say thanks to your past years because they enabled you to reach today! Without the stairs of the past, you cannot arrive at the future. So, enjoy a great 2017.
  4. One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly. Happy holidays everyone:cool:
  5. Unless you have many corner areas to put that type of cage in, it's best to get regulation sized cages which can be moved around easily to other areas . A person will never know that they wanna move a cage to another area. A regulation styled cage can is attractive in all areas and not stand out and will fit in with other cages in all areas. I've seen people who realized that the hexagonal cage was more of a pain in the than was expected. Plus hexagonal cages are a little harder to clean up. Replacement parts are harder to find.
  6. Maybe I'm reading your post incorrectly. Are you saying that in the past,it sounds like your bird used to bite you but you devised a method that would lessen the biting which in uour eyes d\seemed successfu; If so, that was a mistake simply because it only put the biting on the backburner. Right now you're afraid thayt your bird will bite you in all the wrong places that will cause serious injury. First off, never kiss any bird on the beak who has a history of biting. Actually, never let a bird kiss you on the mouth. The biting may subside but the desire is still there and you can't be sure t
  7. Look, maybe you misunderstood what I said. I told you that the formula you are using is not made for parrots so I gave you an idea about what to as far as making a different type of formula that's good for parrots `.It's closer to the correct type of formula to give. I told you to make a different type and the reason is that you're not giving the correct type. You're using a forula that's made for other types of birds. You have no avian vets where you live. You came here to get correct advice and that's what I'm doing. I never heard of someone mixing in potatoes with formula. I told you what s
  8. The formula mix in those packages aren't for parrots. They're for soft billed birds such a finches, canaries, pidgeons, doves. That's what is causing those loose droppings. At 12 weeks, solid food should be introduced such as green vegetables, solid carrots and parrot seed mix. The bird won't like all the vegetables but you need to be patient and try all types. He won't eat all the different sized seeds but he'll eventually he will. Seed should be in an area where he can easily get to it all the time. The seed should be with him 24 hrs a day. The vegetables should be raw, very green. You can
  9. ABVP Certified Avian Veterinarians in the Seattle Area Seattle, WA - James Onorati (Des Moines Vet Hosp) - 206-878-4111 Seattle, WA - Tracy Bennett (Bird & Exotic Clin of Seattle) - 206-783-4538 These are in Seattle but not be near you. Understand that a usual avian vet visit is done once a year unless there's an emergency. Many people have to travel a bit to get to an avian vet.
  10. Hmmm, This almost sounds like an Online Dating Service. Maybe Match.com??
  11. This item isn't an extract from aloe. It's pure aloe with nothing else in it. You can get it at a pharmacy or have them order it for you. Some supermarkets with a drug department may also have it. Yes, it can be put on bloody areas. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v50/DaveVP/DSCN0113-1.jpg
  12. I'm not a vet but the one thing that's wrong here is that collar. Your bird has an exterior problem. Antibiotics cant really help if there's no infection there. One item you should get from a pharmacy is ALOE VERA GEL The gel should be put on the tear area heavily and allowed to linger. It's not toxic and will keep that area moist and pliable. The wing's stretching ability will improve. The scabbing area will lessen. This gel should be used often on that area. It relieves itch and periodic pain. The gel allows the bird to not pick at the scab. Think about a scab on yourself. It dries, gets i
  13. A method I've told many people to do is to use either a hand saw or a dremel tool and make slight zig zag cuts all over each branch in no particular order. It'll give supreme grip for claws. It will imitate gripping like an outdoor branch.
  14. No matter how sweet, kind, loveable, cute and adorable your bird is right now, if he gets the idea that he can go on your shoulder, I guarantee you that in the future, he will give you an absolutely free-of-charge earlobe piercing for your next set of new earrings that you buy. If you wear a chain on your neck, they're able to snap and break it without even trying hard. They love shiny jewelry. This goes for your husband or children too because as far as ear lobes go, there is no sexual preference. Another reason for not doing the shoulder thing is that if you use some sort of hair grooming it
  15. This is what happens-----A person gets a brand new baby bird. They're trmendlly excited. They wanna know and be a part of everything concerning that new bird and other people birds and info. That person is thrilled. Fast forward-----that bird is now 5, 6, 7 yrs old. The person now knows that their bird wasn't as special as was once thought. The bird is now a part of the family, a member of the house, mixing in with all the people In other words --------AS bb king WOULD SAY ---------!The thrill is gone!-------So it's time to go
