  1. Can't seem to get the video to upload here....maybe if Kevin comes along he can help me..:/
  2. Hope she is doing ok now!
  3. I will need to get new cages one day..I think the cost of SS cages equals the $$ spent replacing metal cages over time ...no? Okay, I just looked..I am wrong! lol
  4. Oops, I didn't check the link...I have it on my home computer..I will fix the link when I get home (at work, playing hooky)
  5. To All Our Older Members: I know many of our members that contribute these days are newer members and aren't familiar with one of our earliest members. For those of us that have hung in there for all these years......you may remember when we first joined (after jumping ship from another bird forum), there were only 3 rooms here. As a group, we have increased the rooms to what we have today. The membership was more like a family back in the day when we were all so active..being here every day all through-out the day.....those were fun times! We became a family and shared lots of ups &

    Vet question

    Just like my children, my parrots are never left alone with any stranger, even the vet. They understand and are comforted by you being there
  7. All 3 of mine came to me with clipped wings. I am a firm believer in allowing them the freedom to fly just like we have our legs, their wings are their legs...I have a tag that recently started plucking her legs and a little,of her chest. She is low on the totem pole and the others don’t allow her to get a lot of attention. She is the only one allowed out in the am while I get ready for work, and the last one to bed. I try and give her more attention, I know it’s stress related...but with work, my time is limited. Her place in the flock is a contributor to it I am sure. It saddens me..

    Bird lights

    Really Ray? I never knew that. I do use uv lights, it’s the fixture I was concerned about.

    Bird lights

    Best UV light for parrots? I have used Featherbrite for 13 years, in that time I have had to replace them about 5 times due to a burning of the wires that attach to the bulb socket burning So glad I noticed the smell when I was home and not at work....Suggestions please? I used a in light 1 time and Talon got her right eye sunburned because of it..
  10. I am very sorry this happened. My condolences. How devastated you must feel. Thank you for the warning so others may now know not to use these types of heaters.
  11. All 3 of mine were clipped when I got them. One at 6 weeks, one at 6 months and 1 at 1 1/2. I let all their wings grow out. My 6 week old flies effortlessly and always has. My 6 month old was taught to fly by my youngest son, she is an amazon & is heavy, she can fly well, but she is like a missile when she flies, you gotta duck or get hit! LOL. MY year and half one took almost a year to grow out, she learned to fly but but was difficult. She still forgets she can fly at times. They are now 15 years old & 11 years old. they never plucked due to flying. the 6 week old that is now 15
  12. Gosh 3 birds later, I’ve had talon since she was 6 weeks old...I think if I remember correctly ..her first words were “step up”..not 100% certain tho...
  13. LNCAG, I couldn’t agree more! ❤️
  14. Breeding is a difficult thing to do with parrots. I suggest you look thru the files here and research all the information you can, I myself I don’t care for breeders of any sort, I believe in rescue, but if you become a breeder knowledge and experience is key. Otherwise don’t attempt it. Just my opinion.
  15. I think you misread the intent Janet. I believe it is Off topic section...general chat?
