• How loud is a lovebird compared to a cockatiel?

    I currently have a lovebird and a parakeet and I am looking at adopting a cockatiel; however I live in an apartment. I am worried about the noise. I am told that this bird is a "very" happy bird and loves to talk and whistle. I just need to know the comparison to the lovebird, which is pretty loud in my opinion.

He only seems to do it on his rug, but he is on that every day. I don't get it. Any suggestions on what is wrong?

He just tucks his feet up under him. I can tell whoever had him before me just grabed him from behind and held him that way. He will sit on my shoulder and walk with me, but it is a struggle to get him out of his cage or off the floor. I also have a parakeet who he adores. They play together all the time. My parakeet knows how to step up and do other tricks, but the lovebird I just can not train. any suggestions?

    I need to scan photos into my computer and resize them to 1 1/2 inches x 2 inches and connect then all to each other to put around a real that is 14 inches in diameter. Would Fedex Kinkios be able to do it?

Also, that it can cause the bird to drink a lot more. My lovebird does drink a lot of water. I just thought he drank more than because he is a little larger than my parakeet. I have no idea the age of my lovebird ( I adopted him from a shelter) , but is this something that happens with old age? I do not know if my bird is old or young. My bird seems to act fine. His stools kept getting runny and then they got better and today I noticed they are almost pure clear liquid.

  • What do I do? My maintenance men for my apartment building smoke in my apartment while I was gone.?

    The maintenance men came and fixed my bathtub while I wasn't home and when I came back home my apartment smelled of cigarette smoke. I also have 2 birds, which is very harmful to them. Do I call my landlord and complain? Do I write a letter to him? Or do I just ignore it?

I usually only shut the door when people are over, he is in trouble, or I am gone. I do not understand why he doesn't stay in anymore. Then when he is out he doesn't come to me like he used to.

  • What homemade toys are safe for a bird? Or things around the house are safe for a bird to play with?

    I have a parakeet and a lovebird. My parakeet doesn't really like to play with anything but the expensive bell toys, but my lovebird will play with anything. My parakeet does love to chew on my baskets which I hate. Is there anything close to a basket that he will like that he can chew on? He doesn't like bird chew toys.
