Where can I give away my bird?
I started college and it's not allowed in the dorms. I thought my family would take care of it while I was away. I got home today and she was basically wallowing in her own shit, so I've decided to give her to someone that will take care of her. The only issue is I don't know where to look for someone that will do that
>>
Im a sailor and want to have a pet bird so that I can be a full-on pirate. (not even joking)

Considering how most days I have a lot of time to take care of it, I can deal with high maintenance species, but I am a beginner to birds.

I need one that can know how to come back to me. I assume it would be fun for it to fly following the boat while I sail, yet it needs to obviously be very attached to me so that it may come back.
Which bird should I get? Bonus points for being prone to standing still on my shoulder wherever I walk/go.
>>
>>2000453
My cockatiel used to love spaghetti. I read you're not supposed to give them tomatoes but he never had any ill effects from it. He loved bean burritos and coffee. Apparently you're not supposed to give them caffeine either but a few sips didn't even make him more energetic.
>>2004941
Try craigslist. Charge a rehoming fee to stop flippers and people looking for experiment subjects. Only sell to people who know how to take care of it.
>>
>>2005009
I can only speak for parrots. They will have to be flight trained to come back to you. A parrot has eyesight that is equivalent to a humans so when they fly away from you too far they don't realize that little speck is you. Every cockatiel, a type of parrot, that I've owned has been very attached to me. They would always get excited when I entered the room and fly to me. Everyone that got loose outside got lost and I had to go to it. Flight training should be done in a room that is bird safe. Parrots can't swim. Their feathers don't work when wet either.

A cockatiel is a good beginner's bird. They're not too loud and they love to sit on your shoulder. They live 30 years. Some learn to talk but I wouldn't count on it. They have small beaks so they don't bite hard. Parrots bite when they are scared of you or something around them. They bite each other in the wild to warn each other because the instinctual reaction to a bite is to fly away fast. If they like you they will bite you if they see a predator. In larger parrots the beak is capable of cutting through a broomstick.

There are lots of places that have info on cockatiels and parrots in general on the internet. I'd read a lot about some of the behavioral issues they can get. Cockatiels should be given a diverse diet. I fed mine a pellet and seed mix and anything I eat that is safe for it and it would eat. Cockatiels are afraid to eat big stuff some times. Like a green bean is intimidating but if you cut it in to little 3mm cubes they are likely to try it.

Read everything you can about them and realize flight training will be hard. If you read a bunch about them on the internet and are still interested find a book about avian veterinary practice on thepiratebay.se.

My cockatiel started limping suddenly yesterday. I think he made a bad landing jumping down from my head down to a desk (being a really clumsy little dunce). There's no visible damage and he appears to be able to both climb and walk on it, but likely with a lot of pain.

That should mean it's just a sprain right?

I'd give it a couple days then bring it in for an xray. Foot injuries on parrots are tough to heal sometimes because they stay on their feet all the time.
>>
Are chestnuts bad for birds?
>>
>>2005770
I've never tried it. What I can find on various parrot websites suggests the following:
The wood from a chestnut tree is poisonous. The nut itself is not. Some commercially available chestnuts are not fresh and have fungus on them which is harmless to humans but harmful to parrots. This is similar to what I've read about peanuts. Peanuts commonly have a fungus that is harmless to humans and harmful to parrots. If you can find fresh chestnuts I'd say it is safe to feed them to a parrot if you shelled them first.

Can birds be potty trained? I like the idea of a cute bird sitting on my should while I'm at home but I don't want him shitting everywhere.
>>
>>2005272
That's pretty sad, poor birdie.
>>
>>2005829
That behaviour seems to be pretty common among hooded crows. As which many of their behaviours, it's still unclear whether they do it for fun or for some kind of utility, although the former wouldn't be too far fetched, considering how insanely intelligent those birds are.

Have you seen that movie where one of them almost instantly solves numerous shape riddles(supposedly even without having the point of the puzzle "taught" to them beforehand)? There should be a webm of it somewhere, too.
>>
>>2005828
You can potty train parrots. I never bothered with my cockatiels because their droppings didn't stink. However one of my cockatiels didn't like to use the bathroom in his cage. I only kept him in there at night for his safety. He would hold it all night and let a big one go about 30 seconds after I took him out. Just long enough for me to put him on my shoulder and get it all over me. I started holding him over the garbage when I first took him out and wouldn't let him on my shoulder until he pooped. He really liked my shoulder so he figured it out and would poop as soon as I held him over the trash can.

The way potty training usually works in parrots is you say a word every time they poop. They have a body language that allows you to predict a few seconds before they go. So you say it just before they poop and then give them a treat. Then you start saying the word and let them figure out they get a treat if they poop. Then every so often you bring them somewhere to poop and give the command. As long as you don't wait too long they'll only poop on command.
>>2005831
It's common for a parrot not to eat for a few days when a mate it has bonded to dies or it doesn't see it for a while. It doesn't matter if the bonded mate was a sexual partner or not. It doesn't matter if the bonded mate was a parrot or a human. Just the absence of something it considered a friend causes depression and therefore a loss of appetite.

While that gif is equally impressive, it's not the one I talked about.

In the one I meant, a hooded crow guessed which one of two cans contained food, judging only by the visual cues in the form of shapes in different colours drawn on their lids. The crow was supposed to find similarities between one of the can lids and the coloured shapes drawn on a piece of paper lying between them, and apparently, it got it right every time.

Here, found a link:

Pls don't dismiss it just because it's the daily mail, by the way. I'm sure it's been mentioned on more reputable websites, as well.

Never dealt with babies or a budgies so I don't know if whimpering is normal. Some signs of breathing problems with parrots are tail bobbing, wet nostrils, wheezing, excessive sneezing. Try looking on youtube videos to see if you can find a healthy budgie making the noise you hear.

God budgies are cute. I've read that they bully cockatiels even though they are smaller than cockatiels. I wish it were safe to keep more than one type of parrot in a cage. I love cockatiels so no budgie for me for a while

I actually got them from a friend who keeps budgies, cocatiels, and ring necks together, they seem fine around each other but there in an aviary around 11'x11'x11'. He does keep lovebirds and canaries away from all his other birds.

The white budgie has a a repiratory infection im taking him to a vet either Wednesday or friday, i believe he also has a ruptured air sac there doing pretty good though
>>
>>2005009
Flight training is very difficult and extremely easy to fuck up, even for people who have been doing it for years. You are straight up accepting that you may never see your bird again. Sure, some other people /might/ find it but if you're out on the ocean - it's good as dead depending how far away from land you are and/if your birb even goes in the right direction. Parrots aren't made for long, exhausting flights or traveling far distances at all.

You can however harness train as an alternative to free-flights. If you want a bird that you can let be free and follow you around, you might as well just start feeding seagulls.
