    Your cage may be too small, and if so, when it plays hard it will break its feathers because of the cage bars. It could also be starting to molt. Ringneck often start to molt at about 7 months of age, but that can vary with captive bred birds. A molt lasts about 8 weeks, but that too can extend for months in caged birds.

    Its hard to say why your bird died. They live on average 12 to 14 years and are very hardy. It sounds like your bird may have been sick, because you said you were advised to start an antibiotic treatment. Presumably you told them about, or they saw, physical symptoms that indicated this type of treatment. The best way to get an answer is to have your veterinarian perform an autopsy, yet even that may or may not be conclusive.

    No, if he's damaged his feet (I'm guessing he lost part of a toe) it will not grow back. Feathers usually will though.

Hi Everyone, We had a beautiful male Plumhead Parrot named Jasper! We had just moved up the Sunshine Coast, Yandina, Qld. I think it was almost the end of 2013 at the time. We had only been there for about 3 weeks when Jasper flew away and being in a completely new area and lots and lots of trees for as far as you can see, he must of lost his bearings and never came back :-( :-( he was about 4 and a half years old and had him from a tiny little syringe fed baby!!! He use to mimic my family and myself. But loved hanging out with me all the time. He use to live in the house with us and also loved spending time outside in the trees with a couple of our other birds at the time. We MISS him so very much and hope to god that he was found safely!!!!! But would loved to find him and bring him home!!!!!! If anyone up the Sunshine Coast, Yandina way and have found our baby....we would LOVE to hear from you!!!!! I know it's a long shot but I've read so many stories where animals have been reunited with their owners and am praying this will happen with our 'Jasper'!!!!! Leeanne :-)

For the last few days I've seen this beautiful bird at my bird feeders. Today while outside I saw it and wanted to take a photo. I was amazed when the bird allowed me to come within inches of it to take a photo. I've since learned it is a Budgerigar Parakeet. Someone suggested it's probably someone's pet and for me to try to catch it. I don't know much about that and wouldn't know what to do with it. Do they or can they survive in Maryland?

    Budgies aren't native to Maryland, so it probably was someone's pet. Parrots can handle some temperature changes but with the extremes in your state I would suggest that it won't survive outside through the winter. If you can catch it, this page offers some great info on how to care for it. Good luck!

PLEASE HELP!!! Can blue Alexandrines be bred and how do the babies look at about 2 to 3 weeks? I took a photo of the babies I have and they are all blue Thanks. Hope you can help.

    Blue Alexandrine Parakeets are color mutations. It makes sense that the babies of two blue parents would also be blue, but to understand all this fully, you need to speak with a breeder who can talk about the gene sequences in mutations.

I have an eastern rosella named rainbow as I've commeted earlier this year as she's now gained all her trust in me and others around her... Finally! She will let me know when she wants to be fed or petted etc. There's just one problem and I'm a little worried as I'm a mum-to-be... Is my pet bird a danger or a hazard to my baby when he arrives?

    In general I would say no, but yet the bird may get jealous of your diverted attention. Therefore, I would not allow the bird out of its cage in the same room as the baby unsupervised. You can be too careful and birds can be unpredictable at times.

I have a pair of Alexandrine parakeets which have bred before, however, the male is now chasing the female all around the cage (large aviary cage) pecking at each other. This has been going on for a while (three weeks), I have also taken out the male bird for a week and placed him in a cage on his own next to the big cage, however, when I placed him back he started chasing the female again. I have another female in another cage opposite their cage but she is quite and would only interact with me. How can I stop the male from fighting the female?

    These birds are very active and alert so need a lot of stimulation. They do need a very large cage with separate feeding and watering dishes, as well as many toys and plenty of perches.

    The reason for their aggression is hard to determine. It is usually the female that gets moody during breeding season, with aggression less often seen with males, but it does happen. An aggressive bird can hurt or kill anther bird, so it's good that you remove the male.

    Try to determine if anything has changed in or around their environment that could cause stress. If everything is the same and the chasing continues to go on when you try re-introducing them, you're seening unusual behavior and I recommend you take both birds to see a veterinarian. In the wild a sick bird attracts predators, so a flock will either kill an ailing bird or drive it out. You may also find that they will simply remain incompatible, and so will need separate cages. Good luck!
