Then she slept for a bit, drank a lot of water and ate some seeds. She's not vomiting anymore and began to poop but her poops are very large, pea green, very watery (probably because she drank so much water).
For the last two days I've been giving her a brocolli from a new store so could it be that she has food poisoning from it?

A cockatoo will go fucking mad being alone all day. You'll need to get him a buddy.
Cockatoos are marginally difficult to potty train. You can teach them to go in a certain spot, but accidents are going to happen.
If you clip your 'too, it'll be fairly safe being outdoors. Don't do this unless you bird is trained to come on command, and is fitted with jesses.
Cockatoos are a bigger parrot, but aren't much harder to care for than a smaller one. They're just fairly loud at times and nips can do more damage.
Good feed isn't cheap and toys will constantly need replacing. Then there's vet bills, oh lawdy. Owning a bird isn't for poorfags.
A lone cockatoo (like most parrots) will mate-bond to the owner and can become aggressive towards anyone else. You need to raise them with others from the start for them to tolerate new people and animals."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==2816121 && dateTime=="09/15/18(Sat)21:11:07")

You seem pretty knowledgeable anon, do you have a Cockatoo?

Anyway, in terms of buddy what is necessary? Another parrot or would a small bird keep him company? Are there any parrots that fare better being home during the day or am I going to be looking at 2 birds regardless.

Thanks for the answers man, I really appreciate it."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==2816236 && dateTime=="09/15/18(Sat)23:39:22")

Nope, not a cockatoo owner. I like parrots but they're just too much of a handful for my lifestyle. Maybe some day. Otherwise I'm just really into birds and I've been hanging around here for a long time.

The buddy can be any stimulating companion. Parrots CAN be aggressive and hurt/kill other birds though, so lots of people will separately cage them. This works okay since the goal isn't really to give them something to cuddle, it's for stimulation. It's all about keeping them occupied so they don't start mutilating themselves to pass the time. Playing music/TV, giving them puzzles, hiding things they like, giving them new unique toys, anything to keep their mind busy. Essentially all parrots suffer from solitary derangement. Some other social birds do as well. If you're seriously awesome about giving him novel shit to do every day then he might be fine without a second bird. There are lots of guides on cockatoo care, I'd suggest reading tons of them before jumping into this."

"I'm gonna just jump right in here. I have...a few birds. Specifically four cockatiels that live with an open-door policy inside the main house. All tame, two timid, one obsessed with human companionship, and one somewhere in the middle. One male, three females, two females related (mother/daughter).

Anyway, a friend of mine had an unrelated pair for a while who eventually laid eggs. Those babies came out fine. Suddenly she needs to rehome them because she's losing her house. I offered. What she didn't tell me was that they already had three eggs.

Now, I have this pair with 3 eggs in the nest and no idea what to do. They're in the original cage, with the original box and nesting material. I've noticed neither of the parents have gone into the box since last night when I was driving them back to my house. The mother came out around 10pm and hasn't been back in since, neither has the male.

My questions are;
>What's the best set-up considering my other birds, as far as getting them comfortable enough to go back into the nest.
>Should they be able to see each other? Is across the room far enough away?
>Should I cover them up with a sheet for privacy and give them a light?
>Should I remove the eggs and hope they start over?
>How can I tell if they really have abandoned these eggs?

I've tried Google, but I just can't seem to find any info on my specific situation. I know they need a lot of light, but I only have one window in the main house, and that's where my other birds' cage is."

Probably male, but if you want an accurate diagnosis get a genetic test done. You can get them done quite cheaply.

Remember to do a lot of research on taming, training and diet. Clicker training is very effective. Don't feed your bird on only seed mix. Offer fresh vegetables, fruits, and other grains. Be patient and learn to read bird body language. If the bird looks afraid, keep still and move away slowly. Let the bird know that you respect its space and you won't force it to get into uncomfortable situations."

"Hey, /an/, question for bird keepers in here.

I've kept budgies for most of my life and my current budgie is getting old. When he dies I want to get something a bit different. I've always thought about a cockatiel but someone recently suggested an Indian Ringneck Parakeet. I've done some reading and research but I can't get a definitive answer on what would be best to get seeing as I have only ever kept budgies, and by 'best' I mean easy to care for based on my bird keeping experience with budgies so far. What does /an/ recommend? Cockatiel or IRN? Pros and cons of each please!"

Cockatiels are more loving. Ring necks less cuddly but can talk better."

How is he retarded? He seems to know what he is doing, a hell of a lot more than most parrot owners. And of course he is trying to make a profit. Making an effort to compile information takes time.

Many non fiction books being sold for profit are based on information that is already available on the internet. The difference is that a book compiles relevant information. For instance, a book about frog science is just compiled information that is already out there in the scientific literature. Are you arguing selling the book is a bad retarded thing? Profiting off of writing a book that compiles information from the internet is bad?

Not a beginner, but I am grateful that you assumed as much so as to give me the best answers to my questions. They aren't my first birds, or my first pair, but they are the first pair I've relocated while they already had eggs in the nest.

I did remove the eggs, and I candled them. They were empty. I plan to move the pair into a larger cage, possibly with another female of mine who has taken quite an interest in the pair."

"Is feeding birds, crows, pigeons etc wrong? I love seeing birds in my garden, especially the corvids and robins. When I’m in the city I’ll go sit on my usual bench near my university and maybe give the pigeons that approach a few seeds if I have them

I was told I shouldn’t do it by someone because it interferes with wild behaviour and also pigeons are a nuisance. Surely giving birds an extra hand during the colder months doesn’t do too much harm? It brings me a lot of joy, I love observing them up close but if it’s truly bad like this person said maybe I should reconsider? What are you guys thoughts on it, do you feed wild birds?

Pigeons have become so heavily integrated with our cities because the buildings resemble their natural habitat, and there’s plenty of food to go around, but I realise their poo can be a hazard. When I see one hobbling towards me with one foot intact/with a stump leg and those big eyes I can’t help but want to give them some food. An old lady got yelled at last year for feeding them in my city."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==2824266 && dateTime=="09/24/18(Mon)08:05:12")

I heard some people argue that it lets the populations of certain birds explode which might harm shy birds that won't visit human settlements often or the ones that rely solely on insects.
On the other hand our local bird conservation club says that those shy birds won't go near cities anyways and the almost tame populations of birds in towns are good for educational purpose.

City pigeon populations should be managed by the city by replacing eggs and providing food. I don't think it's a problem if you give them a few seeds as long as you don't dump entire slices of bread on the streets.

The really critical thing is feeding ducks and swans."

"Bird won't play with me, wat do?
>teach tricks
Already did, if he doesn't percieve treats incoming, he doesn't obey. He has learned them properly, and I use a clicker, but no seed, no trick.
>he needs a friend
He has a friend, he actually came home on second place when he was but a little chick. He has hated his older bro from the moment he was old enough to bite and their relatinship never got better. I don't think a third bird would make things better.
>have you tried [item]?
Yes, all of them, multiple times.
>are you sure you tried [item]?
Yes. They have two dozen toys of different kinds.
>maybe he just doesn't like you/isn't social enough
He screams every morning until I'm on his same room and accompanyes me around the house all the time, usually on my shoulder, a place he actively tries to be on.
>then what's the problem?
He looks bored. He'll commonly try to get my attention then does nothing when I'm paying attention. Whenever I get him to play anything, it lasts 30 seconds before he fucks off somewhere else. Spends most of the day perching on a frame, facing a wall, while doing nothing in particular, or roaming around his playground, while doing nothing in particular. Literally the only way to get him to do stuff is bribing him with seed, which can't be abused or he'll get fat.
>maybe he's sick
He's been like this for months now, yet looks and acts healthy in all other regards: shiny feathers without bald spots, eats his veggies, sleeps properly, flies a bit every day, etc.

"Need some ringneck advice

Had her a few months now and she has gotten much more comfortable. When I come past the cage she will press up against it and likes having her beak played with a bit.
When she's out, she really loves to be patted, one thing though especially when she does it when she's in the cage, is when I move away she will lunge at me and make quite an aggressive noise. She only does this inside the cage.
But like, I will come and give her attention then when I move my hand/fingers away from her and the cage she will lunge after them.

Is this behavior just her being cranky because I don't keep giving her a scratch or something more weird?

This is a bad thing. The faster you stick your d... hand into the cage, the faster they will get used to you. (I know this from my experience with African Grey. All guides say, that you should not put hand, before he is used, but he wasn't getting used to me like in 6 or so month, so I started inserting hands into the cage, he was falling down, trying to fly away, I didn't gave a fuck, and finally, he got used to me and a hand in like 1 month. Before that I wasn't even able to clean shit properly)
And when they don't afraid of hand - you can start giving them a treat, just because your hand appeared in cage.

Just be persistent and patient. When they don't afraid of your hand - everything will go faster.
I'm not sure if this will work for budgies, tho."

In my limited experience, depends in what kind of place do you live.

I live in a small town, and birds in my area are wary of people.
I've tried a couple of times and failed to get even blackbirds and pigeons to eat breadcrumbs, even if i chucked the food away from me, they just fly away.

In big towns where birds are accustomed to people it's way easier, i've seen birds there just not give a fuck about people.

pigeons in big cities don't even move out of the way until you are like 2 feet away, and even then they just circle you instead of going on a roof

this kind of birds will get treats from the hand of even complete strangers at times

either cities or places where people feed birds normally (park and lakes mostly)"

All you should need are very short light leather straps. You can use jesses on pigeons and crows with no issue. Don't use heavy raptor jesses as if you're trying to hold a falcon and it'll be fine. If you don't believe me, there's always harnesses.

Should also note that if you're going to use either a harness or jesses on any bird, you need to put them on when the bird is very young, else they'll never get used to it."

As soon as I bought an untamed 4 month old budgie just weeks ago, I was already placing it on my shoulder the first day and successive days. If you feel uncomfortable using your hand, use a stick to get them out of the cage. Remove the seed tray for around 2 hours, then try feeding them via the seed tray on your hand. They usually get silent when you go inside the room then eventually chatter again, whistle when you leave or go inside the room as a call sign of your presence/absence."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==2834613 && dateTime=="10/05/18(Fri)01:31:19")

My lovebirds are also like that. They need toys and stimulation, they're very playful types. I usually clip a dead bark or place toilet paper cylinder on the bottom of the cage that they can nibble on all day. It's fun seeing them roll with the toilet paper as they trap themselves inside. Also, hormones may be the cause of mood swings. My female is a biter, usually makes my finger bleed and can be aggressive when I play bird sounds from my phone, even attacking the male. My male is a beaker, the more curious type that uses it's beak to touch stuff and usually loves to sing. Regarding food and bath bowls, get the heavy porcelain type, like your coffee mug. It can be a hassle cleaning the littered uneaten seeds."

I don't even own any big parrots, but have you really done your research, anon?
Some of them can live up to 80 years. They are loud, make a mess, can chew through pretty much anything and have the mid of a 3-year-old child. Birds need lots of space to fly and can't live trapped in a cage all day, or they will go crazy. And they do shit often and everywhere, as all birds do. The bigger the bird, the bigger his shits. You can train them to shit in one place, of course, but you will still need to throw it out on the regular.
Ask yourself if you are really prepared to deal with all that for the rest of your life. Do you have someone who will take care of the bird if something happens to you?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==2835145 && dateTime=="10/05/18(Fri)15:05:04")

If you have to ask why, you're not even a little bit close to ready to take on a large parrot. For someone who has never had a pet even a cockatiel might be too much. Birds have needs alien from mammals, so caring for them is far less intuitive than with a cat or dog. You're going have to do a lot of research or your pet will suffer under you."

Also they need pretty big expensive cages.
But it is not an issue, since I finally don't live with parents and I can have a dedicated room for parrot. And why you would ever keep such smart bird in cage? It kinda kills the idea of having such a bird.
>And they do shit often and everywhere, as all birds do. The bigger the bird, the bigger his shits.
I know. For me shit is not a deal breaker (Relatively easy to remove if fresh. I park my car under a tree, I know this for sure) , but smell is. And from my sources, it looks like no, they don't smell as horrible as cats and so on, but I an not 100% sure.
>Ask yourself if you are really prepared to deal with all that for the rest of your life.
Yeah, sort of prepared. I know they like ruining moldings... Well, pretty much everything they can chew they will ruin. I also know that they like biting, especially when you're treating them wrong.

Maybe I missed some point. Since they live for 30-60 years it is better to be 100% sure, that it won't annoy you. And selling adult bird is difficult I guess.
>For someone who has never had a pet even a cockatiel might be too much. Birds have needs alien from mammals, so caring for them is far less intuitive than with a cat or dog
Maybe, but since I had never a dog or cat (or any other mammal), there might be less problems, since I wont treat a bird like a dog.

Try getting some parakeets, love birds or a cockatiel before getting a large bird. As small as they are they have huge personalities and can be friendly in a bird way. See if you like caring for them, if they annoy you or if it is even for you. Birds live far longer than you think, even little parakeets can live up to 15 years if care for well."

It would be very far as stinky as cats o dogs. When I smell my parrots, they have a weak scent from their beaks depending on the diet and vitamin type I place in their water at least in my case.

parrots are somehow same as dogs, cats, humans except they are what I consider as "flying hormones". tho parrots need extra care compared to cats and dogs. also, if you have a cat, it's not typically a good idea to own a pet bird unless you completey segregate them. each parrot type has a general unique disposition and each bird within that type also has a unique personality. so you have to research on what type of bird will suit your lifestyle, daily routine, pet interaction level, how much time, effort you're willing to give.

even the easiest bird to own like the budgie requires some knowledge on your part on how to train the bird if you want it to fly inside your room or house."

While they are out of the cage, you need to be mindful of their presence and where they are at that moment. Tho they fly around if they sense danger and can be skittish.

Let me discourage you from getting a big parrot.
>1. Shit.
Birds have free-flow exhaust system, so they are constantly dropping bombs (every 10-20 minutes during day). There will be no place in your house, that wasn't shitted once by a bird. And even you will be eventually shitted.
I didn't expected that, even though I had canaries and lovebirds before.
The good thing is that it is odorless (if bird is healthy), unlike cats.
>2. Food
Pre-mixes are good enough, but they are expensive. Plus, it is a bad idea to feed only pre-mixed stuff. I give my parrot fruits, vegetables, even gave chicken once (because he wanted it badly)...
Proper diets are explained relatively good in books, so read them, you fuck.
Plus, it is a good idea to check if seeds, nuts don't have mold and other stuff.
>3. Cage
You've mentioned correctly, that big bird needs a big cage. And quality stuff is expensive. Plus, it shouldn't be zinc-coated.
Also it is a good idea to find a good lock, because grey africans (at least mine) figured out how to open a lock and door. So I have to use a luggage lock in order to close him.
>4. Mess
They always clean their feathers, thus your room will be filled with fluff and dust. They eat quite messy, throwing seeds and pieces around.
Also they like to chew stuff like wires, moldings, doors... That is a lot of cleaning and repairing, so it is a good idea to get some power tools and skills to use them in order to fix stuff.
>5. Bites
They can bite extremely painful, just keep this in mind.
>6. Other pets
My parrot doesn't tolerate canaries (treas them as food), also he doesn't like cat. Good thing cat is autistic vegan.
Also taming a bird is tricky.

If you don't mind these things, big parrots are good pets. They are smart, they can be put in cage in case of misbehaving (unlike dogs), they can speak, and they like interaction.
But since they are expensive, and they live for a long time, I'd recommend you to think twice before buying."

Red tailed one, right?
I tricked mine like this.
First, I opened a cage, and waited him to exit. (Took 1 week or so). Then I trained him to climb on 'grill' (thing that should prevent bird from walking on tray in cage). He got used to this extremely fast, since it looks like a cage, and he didn't afraid of this.
After that I was able to "wipe" him off on a perch near cage, that he used to go back into the cage. And one day I just forced him to step up on hand. And he didn't noticed anything.
Dunno, your bird is old, and mine was young at that point.

Also you can try putting hand relatively fast (half a sec or so) under belly and touch it, most birds will bite really badly, or step up and fly away."

Agree, sellers (or as they call themselves sometimes breeders) can be absolute assholes. Sometimes they feed you with scary stories, that you shouldn't touch bird like month... That is wrong, the earlier you start interacting - faster it will get used.
Depends on kind of parrot, africans are quite quiet, but macaws... I think neighbors would killed if I got macaw.
Not more messier than cat. Feathers and fluff are easier to clean, than cat hair.

It is better to just teach the bird through proper clicker training to step up, instead of forcing the bird into doing it or tricking the bird into doing it.

I wasn't able to train my cat to litter-box. It was a relief, when she started using bathtub as litter box, because before she was using our shoes.
But on the other hand, I was able to train my parrot to shit into bucket. Even before that, I was putting newspaper under perch area, and 90% of turds were on it.
He gets messy, only when he is sitting on shoulder or head. I'm used to being shitted, I even have a designated shit for it, but mine friend was very upset (but it was his fault to beg me to put bird on his shoulder). Also bird shit is pretty much odorless, and personally I'd prefer cleaning bird shit...
>they destroy things which causes mess.
They are same in term of mess. Cats destroy fabric and paint. Parrot destroys wood.
But moldings or fillers are more expensive, than paint.
I got my bird, when I was 15...
>It is better to just teach the bird through proper clicker training to step up
Maybe, but I didn't had a clicker.
If he is in good mood - he will step up with voice command. If not - with touch command, because he kinda knows, that I will force him anyway to step.
This was probably the most difficult thing to teach, because I had no idea what I was doing, and I was scared.
Other stuff like 'come' and even 'shake head' or 'give leg' came much easier, because I had a 'treat especial' for this.
Also I had bad luck with clickers. First one was ruined by postal service, second - by parrot... Third - I lost it.

Good bird. I usually put him in cage, or on perch if I am doing something else. It is better for him, because who knows what sort of chemicals they use while making wires, and how they affect birds. (Some plastics affect them quite badly, like PTFE, thus it is a good idea to throw away all non-stick pans if you're planning to get a bird)
As soon as he flies away from perch, while I'm busy, I put him in cage, just in case.
Parrot is not interested, while can likes then. I can't count how many headphone cables were ruined.
He tried, but I stopped him immediately. All next attempt ended with hits for him, so he is not even trying now. (and yea, hits work on birds, at least on mine).

You got that backwards between pigeons/rats. Pigeons only eat what retarded humans throw away. Rats will actively invade your home and destroy your food. Pigeons like outside and can only spread the odd rare disease that can be transmitted to humans. Rats will give you rabies and other terrifying shit."
