Hello,

Disagreement with the wife.

 

After years of using a bottle for Eclectus and Ducorps (cockatoo), my wife has switched to a bowl.

 

What is healthier, a water bottle or a water bowl?

 

Maybe you have a discussion or topic link?

How Can I Train My Aggressive African Grey to Sit on My Hand?

Read in 3 minutes

Can I Train An Aggressive 7 YO African Grey?

Read in 3 minutes

Inna asks

Hello. We have a 7 year old African grey.

 

Unfortunately we made a mistake and did not train him properly.

 

We are having problems with his behavior.

 

He attacks. He bites. He is angry.

 

He only obeys one person in the house.

Who can we turn to?

Thank you.

I’ve got a Catalina macaw that has a problem of plucking, I took her to the vet, she has a clean bill of health, now if anyone can help with the feather plucking problem, I would appreciate it, Thanks 

 

From a customer on the West Coast during a phone call this week

“My 14-year-old lovebird began to pluck for no reason at all.

 

We have him on the best foods we can provide like Harrison’s pellets but we had to put a collar on her to stop the feather loss.

 

Nothing has changed in her life and she is fully flighted”
