    There is no age that they start. Really depends on the dog.  He may not have found a reason to bark yet.

I have four budgerigars parakeet.and two of them made a couple. they started to feed each other for near about three months. I have provided two breeding box in my cage. the cage is very big and spacious. but still the hen does not lay a single egg. I change their food and water regularly and have given mineral. What should I do now?

    You may want to separate the pair for breeding, if you're sure it is a male and female.

We have two zebra finches and they have laid 1-2 eggs but we don't know which is the female. They both fight over the nest. They are both white chested but one has a black strip across the chest going from left to right. Could someone please tell me which is which.

    Zebra Finches are very easy to sex because the males have orange cheeks and the females don't. See the descriptions of the male and female above... under the 'description' section.
  • Jean Susie Martin - 2014-01-16
    Both of our finches have orange beaks. They can't both be females if one just laid eggs.
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-01-16
    Both sexes have orange beaks, but males usually have brighter beaks. When sexing them, look for differences in is the feather color of the cheeks. Males have orange cheek patches and females have no cheek patches.
  • Aj Tyne - 2014-01-22
    Even if they are both females they can still lay eggs -- the eggs will not be fertilized and will not hatch. So perhaps you have two females. If they are fighting over the nest, it might help (I'm not sure) to provide a second nest so each one has a nest to sit on.

    As the others said, both male and female will have orange beaks. The male will also have orange cheek patches on the sides of his face -- these may be bright orange or pale orange but females will not have them.
  • Aj Tyne - 2014-01-22
    They can both be females and still lay eggs. The eggs will not be fertilized and will not hatch into baby birds, but the females will each still lay the eggs. If they are fighting over the nest, it may help to give them each a nest so they can each tend to their own eggs. The males and the females have orange beaks. But the males only have orange patches or spots on the sides of their faces. In some males the orange may be paler and in others very bright, but only males will have the spots on the sides of the face.

I have a year old male pom who is beautiful or handsom i guess. He is well behaved and does not bark when told. my vet said it was the first pom she never heard bard. he only yelp a little when he got his shots. he is playful, very cuddly and wants to be with me 24/7. He is 5.6 lbs and is exactly as the pics show. my only question is he hates dog food but loves beef, chichken, fish, some vegs and fruits. is this good or bad?

    As you can see in the diet section above, 'a diet of dry food due to the likelihood of tooth and gum problems'. So you'll have to be careful feeding him other foods.

I brought 12 of these a few months ago, 6 flame red and 6 honey, the 6 flame red started to deteriorate after about a month, loosing most of their colour to a faint pink, i have since lost all of these apart from 2 (those 2 still very dull and weak) but the 6 yellow honeys couldnt be doing better. 3 are showing vibrant breeding colours and look perfectly healthy. so im not sure if the flame strain is a bit weaker or didnt like my water conditions, but i would deffo recomend the yellow honeys variety, lovley fish though very active and peaceful.

    I have one adult flame dwarf gourami which is a little territorial. My 2 dwarf honey gouramis hang together and seemed to have paled in their color. I have one royal neon blue dwarf gourami which always comes to glass on tank when I walk up, even when he has already eaten.. He seems to like me. lol. I have 2 young powder blue dwarf gouramis which hang together.All of them are males since the fish store did not keep females. So far no fighting. All eat well and were shy when first added to the tank.

My yellow gourami ate two of my tetras and ate two of my other fishs tails. Any ideas what to do with Sly? (thats the fishs name)? I chased him with the net for a bit when he would bite the others but that only worked for a day. Should i just find a new tank for Sly? any ideas?

    I think it best to move him. Seems to have an appetite for live foods, which is not unusual for a gourami. I'd say he has quite the appetite.
  • Sherry - 2014-01-21
    Is your gourami the regular or dwarf?

My Featherfin Synodontis is happily housed in my 55-gal with striped leporinus, clown loach, bala shark, golden algae eater, pack of turquoise rainbowfish and my little snowball pleco, which thankfully is not threatened by my featherfin. It's very territorial as expected but through all the years (2014 marks 15 years for 'Felix the cat'!) I've never had an issue of missing fish or aggressive behavior, so a great addition to any large community tank.

Are birds exposed to the virus can't be 100% health ? Because my canaries exposed to the virus that has been paralyzing his legs. How do I treat my canary ?

    Unless your bird has been in contact with diseased birds, a virus or bacterial disease would be fairly unlikely.  Newcastle Disease is a highly contagious viral disease that can affect canaries. But canaries are well known for their delicate respiratory systems. Exposure to airborn toxins can create a variety of problems, including paralysis.

    Your pet could have aspergillosis, a respiratory disease caused by the fungus aspergillus, which is commonly found in the environment. If any portion of the central nervous system has become involved due to this illness, the bird may have tremors, an uneven or wobbly gait, seizures, or paralysis. Aspergillosis can be treated with an anti-fungal medicine.

    Canaries are very hardy birds and almost all illnesses can be traced to improper diet, dirty cages, and drafts. A balanced diet and plenty of exercise will prevent most canary illnesses.

    If my canary is cured, is that true the virus will be transmitted to the child's, because I'm really worries with my canary, already 1 month my canaries exposed to the virus , what can still be cured? Thank you before.
