yesterday when we got up our Jenday conure was missing two toes,we battled the whole day to help him, it took us time and patience to get the swelling down and had to call the vet about bleeding (dont have a vet here)and this morning when I looked to see why he is looking more unbalanced, he has bitten off one of the back toes, why is he doing this, he keep on picking at the toes,he is with a Sun conure, female who had laid over 40 eggs since last year,none fertile as they one is Jenday & sone Sun conure,we give them healty food, take them for vitamin injections when we do go to a town where there is a Vet , but the pair have always been so content, never locked in a cage, sit on our shoulders,I dont know what to do, is there anyone who can give me some advice please

    Wow, your poor conure.  These birds are quite active and love to chew, so they need lots of toys to chew on and several perches for lots of activities. But biting off it's own toes is very concerning... and unusual. Don't know what the problem could be, but I suggest you get an avian vet to do a physical and some things you can also ask about are gout, possible vitamin B deficiency, calcium deficiency, and maybe parathyroid glands. All the best to you both.

    Adult canaries are very difficult to sex, even for the experts. The only absolute method is that just the females will lay eggs. Beyond that, males (cocks) will tend to sing more and have a stronger song than females, but during a molt or in the winter they may sing less, or not at all.

    Checking the vent / cloaca identify sex is very difficult, as unlike mammals, the differences aren't very distinctive. Only during breeding is it possible to see variations. Blow away the feathers of the vent, the skin leading up to the vent on the male is elongated and prominent, and the vent itself is narrow. On the female the skin is flat or only slightly raised, and the vent is rounder and flatter. Still these differences are not very evident, and are only possible to detect at the height of breeding season.

My mother owns a mexican red head amazon parrot and he is an amazing bird. He never stops talking and when you give him a shower he screams ow and stop. He loves popcorn and bread. He is not just a bird, he is family.

    My first Amazon Parrot was given to me by a boyfriend 37 years ago when he was two years old. So that makes him approx 40 yrs. I had many Amazon's , but he was the best of all. Super social , went to everyone and a fair talker. I just recently read that the Bird was on the endangered list !! Just trying to confirm!

    I suggest that you separate the dog away from your Senegal.

    Are these new doves? I think if the female had a mate somewhere else like at the pet store, maybe she is still thinking she is paired with him... Since they are monogamous. It may take some time. I'm still fairly new to this as well

my mom has two of these sweet little birds, that she takes outside and hangs in a tree every day. The birds love it and other birds have even come to visit them. One day when she brought them in at the end of the day we noticed that the male bird was missing! We were very upset and looked every where for him, not expecting to find him. The next morning while sitting on the deck we hear the little bird calling for his mate, and sure enough there he was sitting in a tree looking very sad. She brought his cage outside and he flew over to it and she carried them back in the house! We never did find out how he got out, or where he spent the night! We all wish that little LB, "little bird", could talk!

    I note your post was in 2006 already but so sadly reminds me of what happened to my little zebra finch as I hanged them on the tree and a Jan Fiskaal got hold of her through the bars of the cage. So please be very carefull when you hang your little birds on trees outside

That is ridiculous. You don't need to get a baby unweaned to have it bond strongly to you. I bought mine at three months old and she loves me to death!! She is very well bonded to me and loves my husband as well. All you need to do is give it love and attention. This is for anybody who is reading this blog that thinks they need to buy an unweaned baby to have a strong bond. Definitely not necessary. I love my baby to death and she loves me!!

We just bought a young female white dove. I have a concern though. Does anyone know if she will become depressed? She has no mate. She is let out of her cage daily for freedom; however, until next month she a a cage that is a bit too small. Can anyone help me with my question? Thanks

    It's hard to gauge what will make a bird depressed. Some species of doves will live in flocks while others won't. White Doves usually live in pairs, but are often alone if they don't yet have a mate.
