My blood parrot is about 2- 2.5 inches and has recently been doing some strange digging. It has chosen a single spot and has been deligently removing the pebbles with its mouth and spitting them out in a another area of the tank.
Why is it doing this?
I feed it very well and I often see pellets of food at the bottom of the tank which my fish ignores so I dont think its digging for food.
Could it be a girl, trying to open up a place to lay eggs?
It lives alone in the tank and Ive had it about a little over 3 months…
Any ideas what it’s up to?
Already got the ‘buy before you leave’ checklist.
I’m 18, disabled, female and going to college.
The plan is so far:
-save up/prepare for the next 6 months or so (plus get all the supplies I need in terms of cutlery, dishes, etc…)
-find small (like a studio apartment), cheap pet-friendly apartment (have two parrots and considering adopting an older chihuahua once moved in and settled just for company and to have something to bark when someone comes to the door)
Furniture isn’t an issue as I have relatives with tons of old furniture they’re practically begging me to take.
Income wise I’m looking at roughly 1200-1400 a month I think–as not all the financial bits are in place yet (woot bursaries and disability cheques) and I’ve seen places for anywhere from 400-600-ish with everything included.
I won’t be living with roommates.
As far as services go I’ll be skipping the landline alltogether and using my cellphone, I’ll possibly also need intermet but some places have free wireless included.
Pet food and supplies will run me maybe $60-100 dollars a month and that’s including the dog.
Averages I’ve seen online for groceries in canada are something like 200-400 a month for one person.
So can I make it? Do I have enough money to live comfortably and eat reasonably well? It looks like it to me.
Any tips, anecdotes and whatever?
In any case, I need a good food as he turns his beek up at most veggies and fruits. Loves meat, cheese, protein. I rarely indulge him, as I believe these are not healthy for him. Is this true?
So, I used to buy Harrison’s at vet, but that was discontinued due to some miscommunication between vet and company. Harrison’s online is quite expensive. I have been using Roudybrush, but
my bird liked the Harrisons better. Any ideas? Thank you so much.
About the plucking-I have taken him to avian pet numerous times, have tried collar-everything. I have come to the conclusion it is an obsessive-compulsive disorder. I even tried psych meds for a while, to no avail. But I love him dearly-he has a few bald spots, but overall, looks ok. I know he is happy. I just wish there was something I could do.
I bought a new kind of food made by kaytee today. It’s called forti-diet egg cite (egg-riched fortified food) for parrots. This food was 15 dollars a bag and i’m just trying to find them the best kind of food. So would this food be good to feed my lovebirds?
