Julie O. has a lovebird issue,
Hello Catherine & Mitch
We have a peach-faced lovebird named Kiki (she told us her name, it’s the only word she speaks) that was rescued nearly dead from starvation and dehydration on a busy Los Angeles street about 5 years ago.
We don’t know her actual age, but she looked to be fairly young then.
In the past two years, she has started laying infertile eggs.
Donna L. asks:
What should I do for a hormonal male caique, 17 years old?
Screaming while holding a toy with his beak on the cage bottom or screaming while hanging on the cage bars, screaming at 2:30 AM.
Losing weight, killing any toy he can find, and just starting to pick at his chest and bottom of his foot.
Editor’s note: I suggest a magnified visual of both feet bottoms seeking any sores or irritations. Endnote
Stopped eating his pellets (Harrisons), I have combined them with other pellets, not interested. Will eat them if I soak them in water and mix them with cooked bird rice and spaghetti.
Karen S. relates,
Mitch, I have had birds for the last 35 years all have lived a wonderful life and went to the rainbow bridge before I wanted them to.
I am now 72 years old and I do not want to place her where she will be adopted out.
She is 26 years old, a rescue, and needs a special bird person.
I live outside Annapolis, MD, and have found places that do the rescues and adopt them out or sell them.

I don’t have time to weigh my bird, just came off your caged bird keepers excuse list.
