Hello Can I have a flame angel with a koran angel in the same tank as a 500 Lt? Some of you have any experience?

    I would say probably just because the flame angel is a dwarf and the koran is not, but be careful. If they are close to the same size they may be aggressive towards each other.

Last night we found a small mourning dove, she seems to have no balance, her wings seem fine and she will wrap her feet around our finger. Not sure of age, but she does not seem to have tail feathers. Right now she is eating wild bird seed and will drink water, will she eat bananas? Or dried cranberries? That is all i have right now, will go to pet store and see about some grit and maybe a better feed for her. I also have some lettuce, would that be ok for her?   any help would be greatly appreciated!   thank you tina cooke, conway. Sc

    I don't think bananas are in their usual diet, but it probably won't hurt to try. Dried cranberries probably won't hurt either. Lettuce should be fine. Definitely get a good quality seed mix and grit. Good luck!

I just purchased one today and I must say that it is a stunning fish to have in the tank. If you want to keep one, make sure your tank is large enough and you have plenty of rockwork for it to hide in. It doesn't come out much because that's not in it's nature, but when it does....WOW!

My Holland Lop bunny Chip is the cutest bunny in the world. He is as bad as he is cute. He is sweet and gentle but also a biter. But he is still a good bunny. We love him sooooooo much. My bun bun is black and white and furry and soooooo adorable.

Is is normal for my Senegal to put his head in his water dish and make himself wet all over by flicking the water?

    Yeah, he's fine doing that, he just wants to take a bath. You could also try providing him with a bird bath - flat dish with lukewarm water on the bottom of the cage - and see if he likes that, or using a misting bottle with a gentle spray may be appreciated.

Budgies are a wonderful pet! I have four right now and they are definitely my best friends. I agree with the authors statement that giving them plenty of flight time will make them happier birds, I would just like to add that budgies are extremely curious and they should be watched constantly when they are loose. It's not uncommon for them to get into everything... turning your back for even a second can mean disaster!!

If you have been considering getting a budgie, you won't regret it! They are amazing friends and really bring life into a home :) Not to mention, they make the CUTEST little sounds :) All I ask is that you please do your research before buying your bird. It's best to understand what kind of food/supplies you need to feed and bring it home before even considering your pet. I have had parakeets for years and still find myself refreshing my knowledge on occasion, it is the best way to have your friend for a very long time :)

    Your found parakeet sounds like a great pet and it is behaving normally for a parrot just introduced to a new environment. Birds take a while to adjust to a new home, it may get more vocal as it gets acclimated. You're a great person for taking care of these animals and I wish you the best in finding them permanent homes.

    My kids just found a parakeet thrown away in a dumpster, cage in all, I have no clue what ti do with it, I bought it parakeet food, but its been quiet, eating, and cleaning itself. Aren't they usually noisy???I ccould use some advice here please. Im not an animal person at all, and I already housing a 9yr old chihuahua they found 2 weeks ago. Im not an animal or pet person, but can't stand to see an animal being abused or mistreated. Looking for forever homes for both pets, but want to take the best possible care of them and maybe show them the love an attention theyve probably never had. So any advice would be helpful. Thank you for your time

    Thank you,

I have a budgie parakeet, (blue n white), he's about 4 yrs old. His beek is long that it curls way under n has like a spoon shape on the end? Is this normal or what can I do? He still can eat, but can not peck at things with a pinch anymore.

    One of the most common causes of an overgrown beak is vitamin A deficiency, usually caused by an all seed diet (unless your bird has suffered from a beak trauma, or any malady that would cause a malformed beak). This can be alleviated with diet and supplements, but it will take time. Also make sure you provide plenty of chew toys so the bird can naturally keep its beak trim.

    For now, you need to trim his beak to prevent other problems. An avian vet can to this, or you can do it yourself if you feel confident. Tahere are bird trimmers available a pet stores. You may want to just trim a little ways back at one time and then trim again later, because if the beak is trimmed too short it will cause the bird pain and it will bleed.
