I rescued a sulfur crest and a citron a few months ago. Their momma took her life and the 2 have been together for a while. They are around 10 years old from what I was told. I have 5 other birds from a blue and gold to a monk but this one poor citron is vicious. I have had biters and trained them out of it but Baby is a rough one. He has tore my arm up even when he bites he hangs on. I show him no emotion but he is relentless. He is the sweetest thing in his cage but when we let out with Coocoo he follows him around and you cannot get next to Coocoo. He will even fly at you to attack you. I am at my wits end. My heart breaks for him. He wants the attention but seems mad at the world. He is also missing a toe and plucks or was pulling his chest feathers but it does look like they are coming back since I have had him. I keep him in toys and he is plowing through toys my macaw doesn't mangle the way he does. I feel so sorry for him would appreciate any ideas tips and pointers. I've never seen a bird this bad before. Val

I got a wild caught PFC in '85 when I got out of the navy and started college, It took two years to 'finger train' her, but well worth gaining her trust! playfull, affectionate, smarter than I expected. A true companion, whose 'noise' was welcoming living alone, she literally took away the loneliness in my academic quest. She was with me until thanksgiving 1999, when I had to have her put down at UC Davis Vet. because she was so sick and weak from liver cancer and there was no treatment, it had gone to far. Even in the end she was a 'good bird'. I let the University do the necropsy so that something could be learned (both for myself and help avian medicine) turned out she had Avian Papiloma Virus that created the sores through her liver/GI track that turned cancerous and that being wild caught back then, she could of had it from parents of quarantine process, impossible to say.... I still miss her.

My husband and I became the proud owners of 2 white ringneck doves. They are 7 weeks old and we named them Lou & Sue. My question is at what age do they start cooing?

    I'm not certain of the age, but I do know that the male will definitely start cooing when he is ready to breed. They are sexually mature and ready to start breeding as early as 6 months of age.

I am nine years old and I am looking for a galah or cockatoo as a pet. I live in Adelaide and I would like to know if anyone has one that they would like to give away. I have a cocky cage already. I would be a good carer for it.

Bby came to them about a month ago from another owner. I lv my Bby but they need a lot of attention.if and when u get one make sure it is a Bby cause from g

Hello. I'd like to thank you for the wonderful information you've provided! I'm interested in getting a pair of doves, but I first had some questions to which I can't seem to find any answers: Firstly, are Diamond Doves messy? I understand that they eat entire seeds, so there aren't any hulls to scatter about. However, I'd have to house them in a cage within my house, as it's a condo and there's no room for an aviary. Will I have to worry about seeds and excrement flying out of the cage and onto the floor/walls? If so, are there any suggestions for preventing this, such as a small plastic 'wall' around the bottom perimeter of the cage? Secondly, I understand they are social birds, and should be kept in pairs. I'm not certain that I'm ready for the plunge into breeding. Would it be okay to have two of the same gender? If so, would two females or two males be most wise? Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

    Thanks for your nice remarks about our site, much appreciated:)



    The Diamond Doves are wonderful birds to keep, and are actually pretty clean compared to other seed eaters. But your idea of a plastic 'wall' around the bottom perimeter can help as well. Although a male/female pair is ideal, they can be kept as same sex pairs to avoid breeding. Getting two males is the best to avoid breeding behaviors.

    I have a pair and yes there are some seeds on the floor but its the feathers! The entire floor is covered with itty bitty little feathers! That seems to be the only mess there is.

    I recommend you take it to a vet, they will know if it can be fixed or what needs to be done with it.

    There's no problem with giving the two more pastel colored ones away as well. The Peachfaced Lovebird has been heavily bred in captivity, and many  color mutations have been developed. But these color forms are just as hardy and wonderful as natural colored birds.

Hi! I have Lutino(female) Lovebird and a peach-faced(male). Last week my lutino lovebird laid eggs, unfortunately the peach-faced bird escape from the cage yesterday. The lutino bird is the only one incubating the eggs. Can the eggs be fertile if the lutino lovebird only incubates the eggs? Is possible that if I will buy a new male bird he will incubates the eggs?

    Whether the eggs are fertile or not depends on whether the male and female successfully mated. Possibly the eggs are fertile and will hatch with just the female - but possibly not. The first couple of clutches are usually free as it takes mom and dad a little time toknow what they are doing. Purchasing a male to help the female sit the eggs - it is very doubtful that will help the situation and he just might break the eggs. Let her sit them and if they are fertile possibly she will feed them. If not hatched in about 20 - 25 days just remove them. Otherwise let her sit them. You don't want her to attempt to lay another clutch right away. After a few weeks (whether the eggs hatch or not) would be a better time to bring in another male.
