Let’s Start With Forgetting That Birds Do Not Like Change!

Hi! I very much enjoy your emails and all the information you provide. By the way, my green conure (Wyndle) looks just like the bird you have in the picture with you, Mitch.


Wyndle is a “mutt”, not a pedigree like my Sun Conure was. She has a HUGE personality and is full of spunk; very strong, inquisitive, eats all day (not overweight, tho), etc.

How to Remodel a Cage to Reduce 2 Bird’s Hormonal Behavior

This thread took place during the entire month of December 2020.

Spoiler alert (also found at end of the post)

Hi Catherine I don’t know if you got my email from the other day about the lighting treatment for Reggie’s hormones.

It did the trick.

She is so much friendlier to Kiwi there was just one time she went at him when he was on his stand but it wasn’t as bad as it was before the lighting treatment.

I know you are probably so busy I just wanted to know if she starts to show aggressive behavior do we do the 72 hr or 7 days she is still a little hormonal but not nearly as bad she loves going under my blanket lol.

Thanks again for your advice it was the best Christmas present we could have asked for.❤

How Can I Achieve Better Birdcage Environments for My Birds?

Hey there, here for the brunch, but I’d like to speak to the manager, I just have a question or two before sitting down: 


So we have a 2 bird, 2 human family.   


The littlest one, a GCC named Pz is the comedian and energy ball of the group, with tons of personality packed into a 70gram feather suit. 


Our sanity these days hinges upon making sure the bird children are well taken care of, as we spend all our days with them now and find it very enriching to be attentive to their unique needs and the interesting ways in which they communicate them to us.

Why is My Green Cheek Conure Biting Me All of a Sudden?

Elena T. is concerned:


I have a green cheek conure named Rae and he’s about 2-3 years old.


I’m not sure if Rea is a boy or a girl but I got him from the pet store pretty early on so I’m the only owner he’s ever had besides the pet store workers.


He’s a sweet bird and my family loves him but recently he’s been biting me.

What is a Good Green Cheek Conure Supplement?

Susan S. is concerned about supplements for her green cheek conure:


I have a green cheek conure named Jax.


He will be 8 years old in December.


He was acting lethargic and ill.


I purchased Nekton-S multi-vitamin and put it in his drinking water.


Now he has a lot more energy and his feathers are more vibrant.


My question is should I put this supplement in his water every day?


Thank you so much.

I have a question about bird behavior, and I thought it might find a home in the birdie brunch.


We have a four-year-old green cheek conure and a three-year-old Hahns macaw.


We keep them in travel/sleeping cages in our bedroom at night, with the doors unlatched so they can come out in the morning whenever they want.


Recently, at night, we have found our green cheek to have left her sleeping cage and nestled into a tight space between the two cages, underneath the towels that cover the cage.
