My parakeet is very boring if I give him twigs will he make own nest? Note this is a boy parakeet. Also would it be a hoot if iIgave him a nesting box and put twigs in that for HIM?

    Twigs would definitely help with boredom, as would a nest box. You can also provide him with other toys, and things like a ladder and a swing would help give him things to keep him occupied.

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!

Hi all alex lovers! My query is, I bought a male alex of 9 months as claimed by the shopkeeper .. & since I don't have any idea based on his size... I can't figure out whether the shop owner told me the truth about his age! His length is approximately 14inches. & I was also told that as he grows older he will have a ring around his neck. Did he correctly tell me his age? Also it's been 2 days. He is eating fine.. A bit docile & inactive ( just sits picturesque for the major time) but biting good..looks ok from his outside.. And yet hasn't even chirped any sound (maybe once in these 2 days)! Is it because he is adjusting? Or is it something else? Please Help My Veteran alex lovers! :(

    I recommend you take it to a vet, they will know if it can be fixed or what needs to be done with it.

I have adopted a plum headed parakeet (male) in the month of March, this year. I have the following three questions. 1. Still he is scared of me. When I offer my finger to 'step up' he tries to bite me till now......I came to know through the internet that I should not remove my hand when he does so....but it hurts badly....one day it makes me bleed ..... now I use a hand towel, wrapping over my hand, so that he can't bite my skin, to offer him....he steps up with ease & now he is habituated with that. But still he is scared of my bare finger. How to get rid of this? 2. He only eats corn (maize), grapes & paddy seeds....he dislikes all fruits & grains (including sunflower) except the mentioned. Is the diet right for him? 3. I want to adopt one Indian ring necked (male) next month, Should I keep the Indian ring necked with the plum headed parakeet in the same aviary?

I have two alexandrines and my male suffered fits one day. I was shocked, took him to the vet and they too can not say for sure what was causing the fits. Being a nurse I look at what had happen before the fits he is +- 5 years, had bonded with an Indian male ring neck and in males it is the survival of the fittest? And whenever I give food he will feed the ring neck and he will not stop asking and demanding. This was before I got my female alex? I made the conclusion that is why he lost all his vitamins and low calcium causes kidney problems, and due to their anatomy if the kidney is sick and swollen it stimulates the big nerve that causes the feet to pull down and tonge biting. And after reading more I understand why if I don't touch him the fits is sort and if I touch him the fits is very severe. cCn I be right and this was a bizarre behaviour of two males?

I have several budgies that are pied yellow/ blue. Sometimes they hatch with grey/ yellow, some with turquoise/white/ yellow. Has anyone seen this anomaly before? Is there any commercial interest? Please let me know as I haven't even found any reference to these combos anywhere! Hogg1199@yahoo.com
