We have had our ring-neck dove, Lovey Dovey, for 25 years! We know he/she is getting old -flew into our Mn.yard, so don't really know how old he is….LD's beak worries us, as it gets off kilter -top longer than bottom -any advice about clipping it,etc? Worry lately about ability to pick up seeds…we feel LD will outlive us.:) Thanks, Mary

    You could take your bird to an avian veterinarian to have the beak clipped, or you can trim the beak back yourself. The nice thing about visiting a vet, is they can show you how to trim the beak and then you can get bird clippers at a pet store. If there is a bird farm in your area, they can also show you how to trim the beak. Though vets and bird farms will probably clip very thoroughly, if doing it yourself, I recommend only clipping a little at a time, then clipping again as needed.

    They will often fuss about with their nest until they lay eggs.

    Check out the Breeding/Reproduction section on the Information and Care of Lovebirds page. The link is at the bottom of the introduction paragraph above. That will answer your age and nest box questions.

Needless to say I love my Blue, and Gold Macaw. When I want to take a nap some times?? I will be asleep, and the next think i know My blue, and gold has crawled down her cage, and on to the arm of my chair, and she will roll in my lap,and turn up side down, and play like a kitten. that really will wake you up for a long time. One time she did that when I was napping, and she was giving me kisses on my cheek, and wanted to play.yea.

I have a problem with my Macaw Izzy. Her poop has turned really loose and runny. Doesn't seem to be food related. She eats ZuPreem Fruitblend for large birds. She has never done this before. She is four years old and very healthy. She is a happy bird and she talks a lot. She can get loud but nothing out of the ordinary. Any suggestions on what I need to do?

    Sounds like Izzy is a wonderful bird, and a great companion too. Your concerns are not uncommon, the most common causes for loose stools in parrots are an overgrowth of either bacteria or yeast. Another is a parasite known as giardia and there are others too, but these are by far the most common.



    Of course the best bet is to take a fresh stool sample to an avian vet to help determine the cause. However initially something that you can try that won't harm your bird is to mix a probiotic like Bene Bac (which you can get from any bird store or large pet store) in with its food. This will help you put 'good' bacteria back into the GI tract, and can often eliminate any 'bad' bacteria at the same time. If the problem clears up (observe the stools for 1-2 weeks) then you're good, if not then an examination by a vet is in order.

    Hello there: I also have a Blue, and Gold Macaw, and we just love her,and she is a blessing. The answer to your question is:: Dont feed her or him fruit blend all the time. feed her the Macaw big bites, that have the picture of the Hicyneth pic on it. and the big bag. Feed your Macaw twice a day or your bird will eat too much.Change the food every day, and also the water.Feeding the fruit blend all the time will make her eat more, and not get the vitamins that it needs. it can hurt the stomach some. that is why the poop is too loose. Gradually your bird may get sick, and keep check on the food every day to make sure it is fresh. Keep in touch, and let me know how your Macaw is doing. Make sure your macaw is taken to the vet for regular checkups. I do mine. If there is a problem you can catch it early. good luck.

    Not eating is a concern. The poop should have some white, but there should also be some solid green or brownish matter as well as clear fluid. If your bird is a new pet she could be adjusting, but talk to the previous owner to find out what they were feeding her, as offering the same food initially can help her adjust. If she is established then there is a good chance something is wrong. Either way, I suggest you take her to a veterinarian for a check up right away.

I just got two love birds, a male and female, does anyone know why the male regurgitates its food and feeds the female? I have noticed this happens about 2 times a day. And also how do I know when they are going to have babies? Thanks.

    Hi Shelley, I'm not sure if you ever got an answer about why your lovies are feeding each other... It is a bonding ritual, basically means they are falling in bird love. To know when your birds will start laying put newspaper in the cage where the birds can get ahold of it. The female will start tearing it into strips and tucking these strips into their feathers to take back to the nest. Hope this helps. FYI, research needed for the nutrition for breeding birds, it is very important if they do not have the extra calcium/protein/vit A/etc. your female can become egg bound or end up with a prolapse that very well may kill her.
