• Help! Hen laying strange eggs?!?

    Best answer: Double yolk eggs just means it would have been twin chicks if it were fertilized by a male, it's rare but normal. Hens naturally try to lay eggs until they can lay a 'clutch', which I would say is around a dozen eggs. Think about birds nests, they never have just one egg at a time.

    Best answer: Double yolk eggs just means it would have been twin chicks if it were fertilized by a male, it's rare but normal. Hens naturally try to lay eggs until they can lay a 'clutch', which I would say is around a dozen eggs. Think about birds nests, they never have just one egg at a time. Birds naturally try to lay more eggs after laying their first one. The reason is because they don't know which of their eggs was fertilized so they try to lay all the developed yokes that they're carrying. The soft shells may or may not indicate that the hen wasn't nourished enough to make that many hard shells so quickly.

  • How to get along with my partner's birds?

    Best answer: If they will step up on your finger or hand, bring them to face you while you talk to them. Hand feed them treats. Ask your partner if he/she has any ideas.

  • Does PetSmart let you see/hold the parakeets?

    I’m thinking on getting a parakeet as a new member of the family, but I was wondering if they’d let you hold a parakeet in an enclosed room or something? Just to see if you’d like that specific bird or to help you decide whether you want a parakeet or not? I know my PetSmart lets you go into this side room to play... show more

Just to see if you’d like that specific bird or to help you decide whether you want a parakeet or not? I know my PetSmart lets you go into this side room to play with the cats and see if you’d like to adopt them, so I didn’t know if they did the same for the parakeets. Thanks in advance 💕

    I have convinced my parents into getting a lovebird. But as it is my first time getting a lovebird, I would appreciate if someone told me all about them as I definitely know it's not going to be the same as looking after a budgie. I am going to get one masked lovebird. Here are main things I am interested in finding out: 1) How loud can one actually get? 2) When's the best time training one when first brought into it's new home? 3) Is there any way knowing if it's female or male? 4) Are they good pets? 5) What can they and can not eat? 6) Are they child friendly? (To toddlers) 7) Can they mimic speech? (Not really interested in this, but would be nice knowing) 8) Can they mimic whistles? 9) Does a cage for one have to be massive? 10) What's the best training treat? And that's about it :)

    Best answer: 1. Cockatiels, like most birds, cannot see in the dark. Not even as well as you can.

  • How big a cage do 2 Cockatiels need?

    Best answer: My cockatiel has a cage 2ft x 3ft x 3ft and spends 4 -6 hours a day with his door open so he can exercise.
    I would consider his cage barely large enough if he spent all his time in it.
    It would need to be much larger if he had a companion.

    I have always wanted a budgie, and recently have been thinking about getting one. I asked my mom and after a whole lot of convincing, she said yes, but there's one catch. My parents are divorced, and I am only at her house every other week. She agreed to take care of them, but she won't be able to have any one-on-one time with them like I would. I am planning on getting a huge flight cage and two or three budgies. Do you think it would be ok for them to not have much interaction every other week?
