I have 4 finches, two male and two female. One set very aggressive, had to separate them from the other ones. Now they have laid 5 eggs, all have hatched.
Had to remove male,was picking on mother and babies. They are now about 3 weeks old. Can I leave the mother with them after they are weened? Do I remove the nest when they can take care of themselves?

    Zebra Finch babies will be ready to leave their mother at about 4-6 weeks of age. At 6 weeks it's best to remove the young birds to their own cage.

    Its hard to say why your bird died. They live on average 12 to 14 years and are very hardy. It sounds like your bird may have been sick, because you said you were advised to start an antibiotic treatment. Presumably you told them about, or they saw, physical symptoms that indicated this type of treatment. The best way to get an answer is to have your veterinarian perform an autopsy, yet even that may or may not be conclusive.

    If the eggs are fertile, all five should hatch.

    how will i know if a love birds fischers is 5 or 6 years old?

    The age of birds is almost impossible to determine, other than as juveniles. Your best bet is to ask the person you got them from what their hatch date was.

We live in Cheltenham (in the west of England) and for four months we have been the proud owners of a Meyers Parrot named Cupcake. He was only five months old when we bought him and in the short time since then he has learned a great deal. He can imitate the telephone and the sound of the curtains being drawn and he cries pitifully when left alone. However, what particularly amuses us is his behaviour during our meal times. As soon as he sees the table being set he comes to the bars of his cage and chirps at us for food. He loves peas and baked beans and he is particularly fond of toast (which he dunks in his water pot before eating). So far he has not said an intelligible word - but he chats away happily in his own robotic language and clicks his tongue as a greeting each time we come into the room. He enjoys riding around on my shoulder but, when thwarted, he can really bite!

I do have a 5 year old sun conure. She has laid eggs for the last 3 years. She doesn't have a partner. She is the only pet l have. 2 weeks ago she finished laying the eggs of this year and usually l leave it and she keeps sitting on for about a week or two and she's got no problems. This time was different, l woke up around 2 am with her banging on the cage. When l saw her in blood, because she was plucking her chest feathers. So far she was plucking her skin too, she was in blood and her eggs too. She got very weak. I was so scared to lose her. I don't know. Is it related with her eggs?  They are not fertilized and every year I just take them away and she gets frustrated? I went to the vet and they told me can be stress or sexual frustration because she lays eggs and nothing happens. What do you suggest me to do? Now she is fine but l don't want this to happen ever again.

    Sounds like she did get frustrated, and unfortunately there is no guarantee it won't happen again. Not sure what to tell you, there are substitute eggs you can put in the nest, but that doesn't seem to be the problem. Usually birds go through a kind of 'teenage' behavior thing with sexual maturity, and it passes over time, so maybe as she is maturing she will mellow out. Wishing you two the best...

    No, if he's damaged his feet (I'm guessing he lost part of a toe) it will not grow back. Feathers usually will though.

I have recently noticed that my ringneck dove's beak is getting long. She is eating but i was wondering if trimming it is possible. If so, what do i use to trim it. Would fingernail clippers be ok.

    I do take mine to a vet who works with birds and she trims my doves beak as his grows as well and he can't eat well with it. If you can't find a vet in the area maybe an avery.
