I am totally new to parrots, and am trying to find the perfect breed for me. I'm in high school, which would usually mean no parrot would work, but I'm online schooled, so I'm home all the time.
Can someone tell me how I can make sure that my Scarlet macaw has excessive saliva or not? I notice, he has saliva more then my Blue & Gold, but as far as his activities, he is doing just fine. Free flight every day with no problems, except after flying sometimes saliva come out of his mouth. BTW he is one year old. I would be greatly appreciate it if someone could tell me. Thanks in advance.
I recently purchased a 6 month old female blue and gold. I've had her now for about a month and have tried to bathe her or spray her gently but she appears to be very afraid of it. Even if I try to gently spray her she just wont have anything to do with it. She will even try to fly off her perch... wings clipped. I know her feathers and skin would benefit from this but I don't want to stress her out more. Any Tips?
I just got a Umberalla Cockatoo (female-5 years old) is what I am told. She has been with me for not even a week and she has developed a nipping problem. Is a variety of seeds along with millet spray and veggies and cooked pasta a healthy diet for her??
