  1. Hi, Yesterday I bought my grey to the veterinarian. He had a mass on his neck and they took a culture. He has been unbalanced since then almost 24 hours ago. I noticed it as soon as the exam was done. The doctor said this was normal due to stress. However, after sleeping and being home for 24 hours he is still wobbly. Does this seem normal?
  2. Pi is 13wks old. I am still hand feeding him. Some days he's a big old mush and likes to cuddle but some days he's very independent and likes to bite. He doesn't bite very hard but I don't like it. I've heard different views on stopping the behavior and I'm confused. For a while I was trying to put him down as soon as he bit and i would put him down and walk into the other room to ignore him. But now he's flying and doesn't seem to mind me getting up and leaving him alone :-( My boyfriend who stays with me occasionally is a dog trainer decided to create a sense of equality with the biting. When pi went to bite him he decided that hurting him back equally would be fair by plucking feather. It was a small feather but I could see the bird was stressed out. I also don't know if that accomplished anything. After that he started acting just like the bird and mimicking his every move. Then he would move the bird to show the bird who was in charge (like showing him he was head of the flock) and at a later time give him a high-value treat to show him he had nothing to fear. He claims that within a week of constant training like that the bird will no longer bite him. I'm sure I will get a lot of negative comments on this but I am curious would something like this work?
  3. Hi, My baby is 13 wks old. I was wondering about training. I'm looking for feedback of what age to start and what to start with. Please give me some ideas. Thank you
  4. Wow thanks tiles are a great idea. Yesterday a cut a piece of pine plywood 3/4 thick and put it on top. I made it so it overhangs 4in. on all sides. So far so good, but the clean up will not be as easy as tile. I'm worried he will chew the plywood now and found out it contains glue. I'm wondering if this is safe for him?
  5. My Grey is 13 weeks old. I've been told to not clip his flight feathers until he learns to fly. Well, he is getting around pretty good now. The only problem is he likes the top of my cabinets. He keeps chewing at the cabinets, which can't be good for him and his is destroying the wood. I tried to put a piece of cardboard on top that overhangs to actual cabinets by an inch or so but he goes under the cardboard (even though I tried to put tape holding it down) and still picks at the wood (along with the tape). Any suggestions? Should he mainly just perch on his play area above his cage? He seems to like the top of my cabinets better than being on his perch on top of his cage. I feel bad because I have a small apartment and think he should have another perch area, but there really isn't any other places.
