Chris T. is concerned about:
My 2 birds are not repelling some of the water.
I’m not sure how to state this but the water would bead up and not get completely wet.
After bathing could fly. Now they are completely wet and cannot fly.
I am wondering if they have a vitamin deficiency, or it can just be age?
Kayla writes to ask:
I’m stuck between getting a conure or a quaker (ok maybe an Indian ringneck too), and could really use advice on what current owners think.
I’m hoping to find a best friend who wants to be involved, cuddly, silly, and maybe even say a few words eventually.
I mostly don’t want one who screams and screeches all day.
Is a quaker on the right track?

Happy New Year Catherine this is Lisa. I just wanted to let you know that Reggie and Kiwi are getting along like best friends. There have been no problems with Reggie attacking Kiwi they love being together. Thank you for that lighting treatment.
Barbara G. has a concern
Tootsie is a forty-two-year-old green-cheek conure who has lived with me for forty-one years.
The top of her head is completely bald, with front red feathers remaining.
She sleeps a lot but is otherwise active.
She enjoys her regular food along with a handout from her person.
She does not pluck her feathers, loves annoying me, and is a first-class cuddler.
Could this be age-related?
This thread took place during the entire month of December 2020.
Spoiler alert (also found at end of the post)
Hi Catherine I don’t know if you got my email from the other day about the lighting treatment for Reggie’s hormones.
It did the trick.
She is so much friendlier to Kiwi there was just one time she went at him when he was on his stand but it wasn’t as bad as it was before the lighting treatment.
I know you are probably so busy I just wanted to know if she starts to show aggressive behavior do we do the 72 hr or 7 days she is still a little hormonal but not nearly as bad she loves going under my blanket lol.
Thanks again for your advice it was the best Christmas present we could have asked for.️
Linda L. would like to know:
Is the size of the Tropican Lifetime Parrot granules much bigger than the Tropican Lifetime Cockatiel granules?
Hard to tell from pictures
The Cockatiel size granule is 2 mm, the Parrot size granule is 4 mm.
The stick-sized pellet is about 3/4″ x ¼”.
Lois D. has a question about bird beaks:
My 12 yr old male Jenday is in fine health–eating and playing and chewing wood etc all day.
But I just noticed a spot on his beak (right side) bottom, that is bare (not black)-I cleaned his beak.
Just wondering–have searched the internet and all my books– can’t find a thing.
Can you help?
Should I be concerned? Thanks so much.
Hey there, here for the brunch, but I’d like to speak to the manager, I just have a question or two before sitting down:
So we have a 2 bird, 2 human family.
The littlest one, a GCC named Pz is the comedian and energy ball of the group, with tons of personality packed into a 70gram feather suit.
Our sanity these days hinges upon making sure the bird children are well taken care of, as we spend all our days with them now and find it very enriching to be attentive to their unique needs and the interesting ways in which they communicate them to us.
