    Best thing to do is to get him to a vet who can make a decision as to set the leg or possibly amputate. If there is no vet by you, and bone is not out of the skin, then take small wooden sticks and set the leg straight using the sticks and adhesive tape.  Place him in a small tupperware container or box that he can eat in but not necesaary for him to move around in.  That way pressure is off the leg.  Parrots are perfectly fine and do just great with one leg should it have to be amputated.  He can't and should not attmept to walk or fly (stress on leg) so that is why the small container or big towel on bottom of cage so he can stay down and place food and water on the bottom.  You don't want him to use the leg - you want to set it and let it heal.  Best thing is a vet though if you can get to one.

    Your parrot needs lots of patience, healthy attention, clean cage, correct diet and some toys and a routine. A stand that you can move around so that your parrot feels part of the family. It took my female Alexandrine 10 months to begin to trust me. It's hard work but she is happy and relaxed now and beautiful. Make no mistake, they are very demanding and they will demand your attention. Good luck!

My blue quaker is sitting on the bottom of her cage, not all the time just a little each day. She seems to go on her perch when she is covered up. why is this?

    Could there be anything blowing on her such as a fan or vent?  Even open window?
  • Anonymous - 2012-12-02
    No fan but my temp in the house is on 70
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-12-02
    Second though and next question then.  Is the perch you are using for the quaker a perfectly round doll rod?  They come in just about every bird cage.  However, birds can't stand on them very well and their feet get cramped.  When the doll rod is small (and a quaker isn't a big parrot) the bird will frequently not stand on it because it hurts their feet.  If this is the case - then get a limb from a fruit tree or purchase a screw in perch rouch wood with various dimensions for your little guy. 
  • Kerrie Whiteley - 2012-12-02
    Yes, it is the ones that came with the cage, thanks for letting me know. I will go grab one from outside till I can get to the store

My white male parakeet loves green stuff...salad leaves, chard leaves, beet greens, parsley and especially cilantro. He looks hilarious sometimes, with a green face! It all has to be organic, though, they can't handle pesticides, etc. Have a healthy bird!

    Try giving him about a 2 inch piece of speghetti with the sauce on it.  That is hysterical.

    I just got my son his Derbyan for his 21st birthday. What a beautiful bird and so docile. He is 7 months old.
  • william, - 2012-11-25
    Hello, I bought a Derbyan baby parrot and supposedly it is a female dna. But someone told me that if the beak is red it is a male. Do you know when they are born if females beaks are black and the male is red,  any suggestions?  thanks William
  • Clarice Brough - 2012-11-25
    Nice... you've got a wonderful bird!. On your questions about beak color, as you can see above in the description section, the juveniles all have a beak that is an orangish-red. So unless the beak stays red, you've got a girl:)

Hi i bought my baby IRN 2 weeks ago and he has attached to me, he is quiet with everyone but me. he sits on me staring at me and snuggling with me but screaming the whole time, even after he has fed. what can i do to make him more calm in my presence?

    I don't really have a clue but this is what I would think.  Your IRN is calling you - as if he were calling to his mate.  Answer him in a similar sound.  Sounds nuts. 



    I call my human every morning and I call her every night around 11 pm.  Until she answers me, I continue to make a lot of noise.  She answers me in my call and then I know the world is OK.  I am a Palm and i can make a lot of racket - even bang my door open and closed.  When my human calls me back - I stop making noise.

I have parakeets in an outdoor large cage 3' x 4' x 6' tall. I have a couple of houses in the cage and they do use them to breed. I usually give the young birds to a local feed store to sell (friends). I only keep one male and a couple of females as my regulars. This year I have had three born with duck bills. The bills do not point down like a normal parakeet. It sticks out straight and is kind of flat. One of birds bill is kind of crooked/bent funny. They are happy go lucky, eat well and don't show any signs of having other problems. Could this be a symptom of in-breeding or is it a throwback to some other kind of budgie/parakeet? Just wondering.

    I don't know but could be in breeding if done over several generations.  I am not exactly sure what you mean by duck bill - if you mean flat like a duck - then my guess would be calcium deficiency or in bredding.  If you mean sorta crooked - possibly the mom is over zealous in her feeding.  Is it a new mom?
