odd sleeping flapping behavior

by Heidi
(Simpsonville, SC)

I have a green-cheeked conure. Whenever I turn off the light to let him go to sleep he rapidly flaps his wings and scurries around. Is this normal? I know it's time for him to go to sleep. He shows signs of being tired and had been awake for 10-14 hours depending on the day so I don't think I'm putting him to bed prematurely.

Deaf Parrot

by Tina Russell
(Missouri, USA)

Are there any signs when a parrot is going deaf? Mine used to talk a lot but now all he does is piercing shrieks and screams. Nothing has changed in his environment that I am aware of. The shrieks are so shrill I will go deaf soon I fear. It hurts my ears bad. He may say Hello or What every now and then but that is about it.

poop cluster on the bottom

by Emma

my parakeet has a cluster of poop on the botoom of her body

Click here to read comments


My Eclectus Female seems to be shivering when we go to her cage first thing in the morning. The room temperature is 26 - 32 degrees celsius so I don't feel it could be from the cold.

She seems happy to go to her cage at bedtime so I don't think its fear. She gets 12 hours sleep overnight and a 2-3 hour nap in the day and is happy to hang out with me or on her play gym during the day. She talks and eats well and otherwise seems quite happy and cheeky. Can someone help me to understand what this shivering might be telling me??

Crooked, painful flight feathers

by Zoë

My Senegal parrot is going through his first molt, but his left wing seems to be bothering him a lot. His wings were already clipped when I purchased him ( we was 6 months old or so), so I have never seen him with flight feathers, so i don't know how they should be looking. He has never shown any signs of feather plucking, but he keeps ripping out all the flight feathers on the left wing because they seem to be hurting him.

He will hold his wing strangely and make pained squawking noises if he bumps it or something. Are the feathers simply growing in crooked, or is his wing hurt in some way? How can I help him?
