Separation anxiety?

Hi all,

Sorry for the wall of text that's about to happen.

You might remember Kuzco and I flying across Canada for work (sorry for the hiatus, SO MUCH WORK). The whole trip went really well....

He will be restrained either way, he has to be carried through the metal detector. He doesn't do well being carried like that when he's stressed, which he will be. It makes him very aggressive and...

Will he be upset at being clipped? What should I expect as far as behaviour changes? I want to make this trip a positive experience for him and do whatever it takes to make him feel confident.

Ah yes, the harness. Kuzco has an aviator and he HATES it. I've yet to successfully get it on him, although he will crawl through it for treats. We have to leave for the airport at 5:30am. Would it...

My vet's going to clip him. He likes the vet so I don't think he'll have an issue with it. We're going to clip him a week or so before we head to the airport so he has some time to adjust.

getting him clipped... I feel so guilty.

Hi all,

Kuzco the lovebird is coming out west to work with me this summer, which means a seven hour plane ride. He's coming in the cabin with me, but he has to get taken out of his carrier when he...

Thank you! It's the best feeling ever seeing him enjoying life so much more than before. He went to visit the pet store a few months ago and they couldn't believe he was the same bird.

Our 1st anniversary and update!

Hi guys,

A few of you might remember last year when I took a trip to the pet store and ended up coming home with a lovebird who'd been there for 3 years. He was born in the store and all his...

Birdy jetlag

Hi all,
I'm moving out west for a job this summer and will be bringing Kuzco the lovebird with me. I've got a direct flight, the perfect carrier, and called the airport to request a private search...

Ugh. I hear this. My lovebird Kuzco is hormonal as the day is long. He's a little older than your bird. We aren't sure of his exact age, have heard everything from 1-3 years. But my god, this fall,...

Yes! We have started clicker training :) I had to get him a quieter clicker because the one I normally use with the budgies scared him. He's pretty good with it, although still tries to go around the...

I should clarify, most of the time, I do let him be when he's nervous about hands. If he runs away from my step up finger, then I leave him alone, etc. I was hoping that'd make for some improvement,...

Lovebird attacking hands

Hi all,
A few of you might remember my lovebird, Kuzco, who I bought from a pet store after he'd lived there for three years. He was very afraid of people and hands and although we are very bonded...

The radio is actually a wind up radio. I wind it up every evening and then turn it on in the morning and it plays for about 6-7 hours before I wind it up again. I was worried about the budgies...

I have two budgies and a lovebird. I'd have more, but I'm a student and also travel for work so I have to keep my numbers to a level I can manage on a tight schedule that also are not over the limit...

Sharing out of cage time

So the fids and I are at my mom's for the summer so I can work. Originally, I told my mom to keep them in their cages while she's at work and then when she gets home (about an hour before me), she...

Reptar is adorable! I too have a Velcro bird who loves to climb down my face. It's fun and makes for great pics, but it sure gets annoying after awhile haha. Karma to you!

Maybe it's a peach faced thing then? He's a Fischers and although we hadn't had him DNA'd, based on his behaviour, we suspect he is a male. He definitely loves to chew on stuff, and will grind up...

... With a lovebird who doesn't like paper?

He's just not that into it. He likes to chew harder things like wood and plastic. He ignores paper. Silly boy :p
