Ok, my Sniffers, I think it is important to go back to our old school Parrot Talk chats and take this opportunity with these two beautiful Senegals, Nellie and Monty, …

  1. Hi Marlene
    This question is not related to this video but I’ll still ask!
    I have a sun conure named Dexter and when I first got him he was used to a happy hut but he was chewing it up so I switched to a pillow case draped over the cage and over a perch and also started chewing on that. I took that away but know I don’t know if he is sleeping properly I noticed him trying to sleep on the side of the inner cage and not on a perch. Will he adjust or do you have any advice?
    Thanks Katie

  2. my bird is clipped at the moment cause she is scared of me and the first thing she does when out of the cage is freaks out and flies into things.but eventually when she is more comfortable with me i will stop clipping the her wings.

  3. I love how they just stare. When you say "rehoming", that means they are gonna have to get used to a whole new environment and people again. Unless it's Genna? Or what about your friend who wanted Merlin? Whatever happened with that?

  4. I might be getting a parakeet for my birthday so i need some advice .. I want to get a pair but i heard online to be able to get a pair work with one and then slowly introduce the other one and maybe the other one will follow…but i dont know.. If you can help me that would be awesome 🙂

  5. I’ve been trying to tame my bird ever since I get her and she will go near me when she’s out of the cage but today I got her to step up with a little bit of help does that mean that she is closer to being tamed?

  6. I got two budgies, but I got one of them first. I got Pearl from a pet store (I'm awful, I know) but only because he was risking his life in that situation. Pearl is a tiny albino budgies who is actually the smallest budgie I've ever seen. He was being picked on by the other birds, he wasn't able to get to the food because the other budgies would chase him off. He's gained so much weight since I got him, and grows stronger every day. About a month after I got him, he started getting depressed and wasn't eating as much. I tried getting more toys for him, spending more time with him, but nothing worked. After doing some research, I decided to get Pearl a friend. Since I was pressed for time, and didn't have time to apply for a rescue bird, I went to the pet store again and picked out the smallest male budgie there was. Cirrus is still much bigger and stronger than Pearl, however the got along right away. Cirrus would open oats for Pearl, and has since taught Pearl to climb. They are both doing so so well, and know how to step up and will sometimes eat from my hand. Some of you may think this wasn't the best decision, however I know that Pearl is much happier now, and both of them have a lovely life.

  7. I just got my first bird, a two-year-old cockatiel I adopted from my aunt, two months ago, and he kept flying off and hitting walls and decorations when he got scared. Clipping his wings seemed to be the best solution to keep him from hurting himself, but I'd love to have him be flighted someday <3

  8. I just adopted my parrotlet 2 weeks ago today, and I feel so, so fortunate that I'm having a really easy time with her so far. She's tame and for the first few days I couldn't get her off me while I was home, until she was tired and wanted to go to bed. I think its because I bonded with her in the shelter so I was the only familiar thing to her. BUT, I had the shelter staff clip her when I brought her home, because I didn't know what to expect and how she would settle in, and I've never had birds.

    I really appreciate you saying that its a good idea for first-time owners to have a clipped bird for awhile, because it's taking away some of the guilt I've been feeling. But this is really reassuring, and I feel like it was the right choice to keep her safe while we bond and learn more about each other and I become more alert to the things that pose a threat with her. I've done a TON of research but this is still a lot of learning by experience, and I would rather wait to let my bird fly than have to learn (or be scared off of keeping birds altogether) because of a tragic mistake. I'm hoping to train Sweetpea and have her flying after a molt or two, but she was in and out of the shelter for 10 months before I took her home, so at least I know that she's in a stable, loving place where she gets to spend most of the day out of her cage being loved on. Thank you for all you do for birds, and especially for us new owners who just need a little advice and inspiration 🙂

  9. My first bird sky is not and was never clipped bcz it was not a problem since she would not leave the top of her cage but now she is flight trained so that she doese not crash or anything and if u have to re home them I am able to take them in bcz not much going on in my life and I was experienced with so much parrots one of them is mine so I do know how to tame and bond just one problem to get them….my parents don't want any more birds😥 They think sky is noisy and they don't want more noise in the house 😥😭😭

  10. Literally what I did with sky when I got her….but I did a few mistakes. She was my first bird tho like one that was OFFICIALLY mine so it was not like am a bird expert but I did learn from my mistakes tho
