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.

    I just got a cockatoo a week ago. His name is BBY he is sulfur crested cockatoo. Here is my opinion. He picked me as his owner. He just came to my favorite Amazon Jungle in Ormond Beach Fla. 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.

    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.

My father got a Peach Front in 1996. Its name is Chico. Upon my dads passing in 1998 in inherited Chico. Chico seems to find attachments with males. Chico is a wonderful member of the family. He is a great mimic. He has an amazing laugh and it seems like he always knows the right time to do it. Last year in 2013 when added a Yellow Crowned Amazon and. The get along well. Chico and be loud at times but it usually means he needs or wants something.

I have adopted a plum headed parakeet (male) in the month of March, this year. I have the following three questions. 1. Still he is scared of me. When I offer my finger to 'step up' he tries to bite me till now......I came to know through the internet that I should not remove my hand when he does so....but it hurts badly....one day it makes me bleed ..... now I use a hand towel, wrapping over my hand, so that he can't bite my skin, to offer him....he steps up with ease & now he is habituated with that. But still he is scared of my bare finger. How to get rid of this? 2. He only eats corn (maize), grapes & paddy seeds....he dislikes all fruits & grains (including sunflower) except the mentioned. Is the diet right for him? 3. I want to adopt one Indian ring necked (male) next month, Should I keep the Indian ring necked with the plum headed parakeet in the same aviary?

I have two alexandrines and my male suffered fits one day. I was shocked, took him to the vet and they too can not say for sure what was causing the fits. Being a nurse I look at what had happen before the fits he is +- 5 years, had bonded with an Indian male ring neck and in males it is the survival of the fittest? And whenever I give food he will feed the ring neck and he will not stop asking and demanding. This was before I got my female alex? I made the conclusion that is why he lost all his vitamins and low calcium causes kidney problems, and due to their anatomy if the kidney is sick and swollen it stimulates the big nerve that causes the feet to pull down and tonge biting. And after reading more I understand why if I don't touch him the fits is sort and if I touch him the fits is very severe. cCn I be right and this was a bizarre behaviour of two males?
