We got our derbyan when he was 9mo old. He turned two in May and is really a delight. He is quite a talker, but we don't have much time to teach him tricks. When we are home from work, he thinks we should be in the same room or he really let's us know with his loud squawking. If he thinks we are mad at him and tell him NO, he tells us "I love papa,papa, dad n' dad and BARNEY!!! Works every time, lol.

    My human has had feathered companions for years and always told that avocado is actually toxic for birds. Can really make them quite ill or possibly die. Chocolate is not good for them - at all and can possibly cause harm but avocado - I wouldn't take the chance.

Hi My female just laid three eggs. But I also have two other males in there should I move the other male or let it be because they seem to be doing well together so far?

    You can file it or have the vet file it. Now easier way and before I would try this - get one of those concrete perches and place it at the highest level in the cage that they can perch on. They will usually file their own beaks and nails using the perch. A lava rockk on a chian (bird toy) is good but the perch works the best. They do not like their beaks filed so best to get the perch.

How can you tell a female from a male golden mantred rosella? It is the australia parrakeet.

    The males have much brighter coloring than the females. Also, the head of the male is flatter than the female. The females head is a smooth curve from the eye area to the neck and the males head is flatter with a slant at the back portion of the head leading down to the neck.

    Go to bird talk and look up breeders ads in the back and see what you can find. You can also try online - I don't know where you live - and look for breeders.

    If you are still looking for a female derbyan contact Wendys Winged Companion in FL (different Wendy). You can find her on birdbreeders.com I am getting a male from her tomorrow. This will be the 2nd bird I've gotten from Wendy and even with having to ship, she is wonderful to deal with. There was one female in the clutch that she thought she'd sold, but I just checked after seeing your post and the female is still available. Good Luck.
  • WENDY CARLSON - 2011-08-11
    Good Evening Renee,

    As Wendy Scott relayed, I do have 1 female derbyan available. She is the oldest of the clutch, and the only female. Her mother talks up a storm and runs the roost! Please feel free to email me at wendyswingz@bellsouth.net. I'd love to help in any way I can.

    Wendy S., last weekend I got a male from Wendy C. from the same clutch as yours :D Email me! It will be fun to watch my little guy's brother grow up, would you agree? :) missi.bellande@gmail.com

    You can add another budgie - no problem. I would not put themin the same cage. Let the new one have it's own cage and just place them side by side. If they want to get to be freinds - which I can't imagine them not doing - they will have someone to play with when you are not there. His food - check his foot real throughly to make sure no cuts/bumps or splinters. Feel his foot and toes to make sure smooth without any prickles from splinters. Then check the one foot against the other. Also check the ankles and see if any reaction of pulling. I don't know whether his anckle or his foot could be hurt - also strange enough birds do get arthritis - but first feel really good. Let me know. He could have sprined his leg also -
