I came to live with two Nanday Conures when I married my husband. Coming from another country, I had never met the birds and didn't know what I was in for. We also have cockatiels and a few others which I love, but the Conures are so loud and aggressive. I would absolutely dance for joy if my husband would agree to find them a new home. Their screeching makes it impossible to give my toddler daughter a nap, and is very aggravating to my nerves. There is no place in our house we can put them without hearing the noise. I can even hear it when I go outside and across the street from our house.
Please think hard before adopting one.

    If your nanday is covered this will reduce or stop screeching. I have a nanday living with a sun conure. They get on well and are buddies. When the nanday is loud I cover the cage and he normally then is quiet.

My 24 yr. old Amazon had a stroke last week. The Vet didn't think she'd make the night. Her right claw is paralyzed and she's not eating. Her weight went from 480 grams to 406 grams in 5 days. I've been syringe feeding her twice a day but she will only take 5cc at each feeding. I'm worried she will starve to death. Any suggestions of how I should take care of her?

    I'm so sorry to hear about your Amazon. How is she doing now? Any better? I'm not sure what you can do for her if she refuses to eat. Of course keep her comfortable and keep syringe feeding her. She may be in shock and just needs some time to get out of it. I hope she's ok and is on the uphill :(

    Feed her by liquid, apple juice and any other smoothies.

Hello my name is kostas and I have a blue fronted amazon... or an oranged winged?! You see I'm rather confused in which species belongs my baby parrot. Please inform me on what pictures or videos you need to post you so as you could recognize my parrot species. I'm looking forward to your answers, best regards kostas.

Hello, I have a pair of diamonds, they're laying eggs for a while, but none has hatched till now. They're sitting on the eggs well and taking turns, but none of them hatched. I gave them all the vitamins and calcium. Is it because I keep them inside the house? How can I raise the humidity in the cage? I have air conditioning running all the time, and I put the cage away from the vent. I don't know what else to do to hatch the eggs? Please help.

    Although these little birds can have a few hit-and-miss starts when they are new at breeding, they usually quickly figure it all our. So I'm wondering if you are you certain you have a male/female pair.

Please don't keep your cockatiel or any bird in the kitchen where you are going to use a teflon frying pan or any pan with teflon because teflon gives off a chemical or chemicals that their little lungs can't handle. I thought everyone was aware of this until I gave two baby cockatiels away to a young couple and they used a teflon frying pan and both birds died. This after them hand feeding the birds for days and now they are both devastated! I don't know how to get the word out fast enough, please tell your friends and pet stores to spread the word. Thank you. Anne Day in Clearwater, Florida.

Recently I had bought a beautiful parakeet at Petsmart. He had a pretty blue body a yellow head and a beautiful teal green tail feathers. He was about 4-5months old. He died four days later!!! It's a disgrace to pet stores the way they keep their animals. Please reply I agree if you would like to change the way pet stores keep their animals.

    That is terrible. I am sure it wasn't your fault. You couldn't have done anything wrong in four days. When I was younger I had bird that was a beautiful macaw. I too love birds and I agree.

    Jennifer, I hope you went back to Petsmart with your receipt and got your money back. They have a 15 day policy. I'm sorry for your loss!
  • Louise Callcut - 2013-08-21
    I'm sorry for your loss, I refuse to buy any pet from there as I got my little boy a baby guinea pig and it died after 3 months, he was devastated. I went to the store they weren't interested. I said I took it to the vet and it had something that an adult pig would get. I went to the head office and got no joy I think something should be done about these pet stores.

My severe, I adopted after she was being abused for screaming etc. I've had her for 5 years or so, you would say I love her, but many days she makes me crazy. She's demanding and doesn't want anyone to talk to me let alone come near me if she's around. She even screams if I'm in another part of house and she can hear me interact with someone. She's messy and has bitten almost everyone I know. I still love her and she loves me but not a bird for anyone without patience and love for any animal I take in. I could never get rid of her even though my family threatens her they will when I'm not home. The second I get home she demands my attention and creates havoc till she gets fullfilled. She always wants to be boss and rarely uses a cage. I could write a book about her many antics and wish somehow I could get her to be people friendly. I'd take her everywhere with me if I only could. I love you nina. aka badgirl.

I have a Peach faced lovebird and she just laid three eggs but I don't have a male bird. Is the male bird the one that has to sit on the eggs or does she? Because she is not sitting on them.

    They usually lay 4 - 5 eggs and won't sit them until all the eggs are laid. The eggs are obviously infertile but don't just remove them. She will just lay more eggs and run into a possible calcium shortage. Let her sit the eggs if she wants for the 20 days or so and then just toss them out. But let her sit them for the 3 weeks if she wants.

    Both male and female. Male feeds female too. My female has 3 eggs too.

I bought a giant Verde Macaw in the spring of this year. We are totally surprised with her. Halley her name is, the most gentle bird we have. Her colors and appearance are striking. We didn't expect Halley to be so large, she is about 5 months old, and weighs around 1650 grams. Her size is big as she is gentle. She's starting to talk now. A good friend of mine breeds extra large parrots including Hyacinths, huge greenwings he said that's the largest bird he has seen. She is so gentle, she opens her wings and hugs you when you pick her up. We have three others macaws, a Catalina, blue and gold, a huge Greenwing Macaws, plus A congo grey, and a 37 yr old Yellownape amazon. So we can compare, they are all great birds . She is like a gentle Greenwing Macaw. Now the cons she is real large for one, she always wants to be picked up if that's a con. She has one of the largest voices I ever heard. But she is the least noisiest bird I have. I cannot say they're all like this one.
