Yesterday, my alexandrine had a bath. when she is wet I saw a mild bar lines on her tail feathers. I can't see when she is dry. What does it mean? She is healthy and playful and also she is nearing 7 month but she only mumbles and very rarely says hello. Please give me some suggestions.

I've read so many 'fact's about rosellas, only a few of which I've found to be true with mine.
I bought an unhandled, 7 year old male who had only been used as a breeder. He's a stunning Opaline (or Firery) Eastern Rosella. In the span of 7 weeks he's gone from wild and unhandled, to happily stepping up on a stick, learning to step up on my hand, and even tolerates touching of his back and wings. He lives in a very large cage with my 4 cockatiels and single budgie. He's not the slighest bit aggressive, and gets along WONDERFULLY with them. When let out of their cages, he gets along just fine with my lovebird as well. He's been a joy to have around, a quick learner and a great addition to my flock.
Perhaps he's just an exception to the 'rules' of Rosellas, or perhaps people don't give them enough credit. Seems to me they make wonderful pets (and he is definitely a male).

    Give them time to settle into their new home.  Find some treats that they enjoy and bribe them into being nice.

    I would put water in her bowl, and leave out the juice and soft drinks. I'm betting she'll drink when she gets thirsty.

    Hey Jayashree, I have a suggestion for you...register with your Facebook account. Then you can  check the box to be notified when your comments get responded to. It's easy to do...  when you post you comment, just click the 'register through Facebook' button, and then \put in your comment. That should help you:)

    Just the same, here's what posted a few days ago about this (click on the 'View all the Animal Stories for Alexandrine Parakeet' button below, to see your earlier posts): 'As you can see in the breeding section above, they don't reach maturity until about 2 years. So your bird's too young to breed, but as birds are very social, so getting a companion would be nice. Just make sure to let the birds get comfortable with each other before putting them in the same cage, this is important no matter what age they are. If you do decide to try and do some breeding when it's an adult, have your bird sexed by a veterinarian. DNA sexing works really well.'

I have two budgerigars male and female. They are brother and sister They always fight and the female sometimes will not let the male eat until she has her full then she will let him eat but then will share, the male said his name as loud as he can What can I do to try to get them to get along at times

    It sounds like they may have established a 'pecking order'. You might have better compatability if you get them a bigger cage with more perches and toys, but the female may still 'rule the roost'.

My eastern rosella pair laid two eggs day before yesterday but the female is not incubating the egg at night? Is it okay? Is she going to incubate all the day after laying all her eggs?
