I would love to take this kitten in but I do not want my bird to be unhappy. Is it possible for the two to safely coexist?

    Ok so to start it off my dad built our house, and has been in the process of completing it while we've been living here, but my mom went crazy and my parents are getting a divorce. So we have to sell our house, we are in the process of getting rid of all our old junk including the stuff stored in our unfinished basement, there's lots of spiders and **** so my dad wants to set off several bug bombs down there to kill them all. The problem is our floors aren't finished either and the upstairs is just the base floor without the subfloor or carpet or anything. I have a pet cockatiel and a pet finch in my bedroom and I don't want the poison to come up through the floor and kill them or make them sick. Is that possible or am I just paranoid. If not what should I do to protect them and keep them out of danger?

    2 weeks ago, I got my one and a half year old Parakeet named Sapphire. I got her from a friends mother, and I didn't realize that the bird lady didn't exactly tell me everything about this bird. Her previous owner never let her out of the cage, so basically my bird has had no human contact and is extremely violent towards me. I cannot bring my finger anywhere near her or else she will bite through skin. I know patience is key with abused birds, but I'm slowly losing hope. Any tips?

  • Can a newly hatched chick survive without a mother/hen?

    We let our chickens sit on fertilized eggs in order to (hopefully) stop them from being broody. 3 chicks hatched, looking identical to one another. A 4th chick hatched the following day, but was a different colour... the hens didn't make a fuss of him, like they did with the first 3... they were out in the run,... show more
    We let our chickens sit on fertilized eggs in order to (hopefully) stop them from being broody. 3 chicks hatched, looking identical to one another. A 4th chick hatched the following day, but was a different colour... the hens didn't make a fuss of him, like they did with the first 3... they were out in the run, leaving the new chick in the nesting box alone. When the new chick decided to venture out & join the group, the hens ran over to the new chick and attacked him... I know this is natural, but the hens would have definitely killed the chick if we weren't there to pull the chick out of the group. Now we don't know what to do, as the chick cannot go back in to the coop. Can the chick survive in a different coop without a hen to look after him/to keep him warm?

I can see them through a small hole they made and can definitely identify that they re indeed birds. I tried to stab them with a knife through the hole with no success - they somehow always avoid the blade. What should I do? By the way, I do not live in the U.S., it s not a federal offence to remove birds where I live.

  • What to do with a killed Hummingbird?

    Best answer: When I had a dead bird of a non-normal type (meaning no pigeons, starlings, sparrows, etc.) I contacted the Audubon center near here and asked if they could use it for teaching purposes. I also called the local museum once too, as they had an extensive bird skin collection. Both places gave me the same advice -- put the bird into the freezer in a paper bag and bring it down to them at a day that they had the right person there to take care of it.

    Small birds like the brown creepers who had hit the store window I was at, a killdeer I found dead from exposure, a cardinal on the ground from being hit by a car, and a rose breasted grosbeak that died hitting my window all were accepted as donations. They thaw the body somewhat and inject a preservative into it, I asked.

    If they can't use it, then you bury it or put it into the garbage for pickup.

We aren't sure of his age; he was already full-grown when we got him about 9 years ago, so he is at least that old. He has also turned down the millet spray we offered him, which was his favorite treat. Besides that, however, he is eating and acting normally. Thanks in advance!

  • Dealing with someone else's aggressive rooster?

    Best answer: Carry a water pistol or a piece of netting. I had an aggressive rooster until I put the net between us as he jumped toward me, spurs first. He couldn't get untangled and flee fast enough. He never attacked again.

I'm just saying the pitbull has a tendency to lung if happy, excited, "is driven" . I'm now tiered of having to watch them everyday because the owner of dogs lets them out whenever. We have complained about the dog owner but nothing is happening. We have a chicken run but we really think they should free rang if possible. I just cant see how I could do this without buying a electric fence.

    My sister and mom own two birds and I own one. They have never taken care of them, so I used to be the one to clean their cages and take them out. However about 2 years ago I fell into a bad depression, and could barely take care of myself and my one bird, let alone other people's pets, so I left them to my mom and sister to take care of. They did not. For the past two years their two birds have been extremely neglected. They get fed and watered, but thats it. They do not get played with, they do not have any toys, and their cages do not get cleaned. They live in a storage room, and at some point their cages got so dirty they had to be let out and since then they have had the entire room to themselves. Its absolutely filthy. Two years worth of bird seed and poop. This has been tearing me up for a long time but I don't know what to do about it. Ever since I got out of depression I have been begging them to take them to the vet, but they say they don't have enough money. Aside from being worried about them (one of the birds looks like she may be sick. Her butt is covered with poop and her face is covered with food.) I am extremely worried that in the case that they were sick, if someone touches them or their cages and then interacts with my bird, that it could make him sick too. I care very deeply for my parrot and would be devastated if they gave him a contagious illness. That is one of the reasons I'm very scared to interact with them and clean their room. What should I do?
