My small parrots beak is turning purple!?
i have two small parrots, a blue and a yellow one. this is a picture of the parrot i found online as there are many parrots and i dont know the exact name for these small parrots http://www.mypets.net.au/upload/flex_img/16112008040342_140.jpg anyway the blue parrot is fine but the yellow parrots beak (the top part from where they breathe) all of a sudden turned purple (it was white/pinkish) and now its this really really dark purple colour, what could be the problem? she didnt have the black stripes over her wings and head before (As these parrots usually do) but now she is getting some and her feathers are changing alot, could it be that she was very young and is growing up so her feathers are changing and the beak as well or is there something wrong with her? where i live we dont have bird vets especially not for this small birds so i have no idea what to do. i got her about 6months ago and she was fully yellow and as i said now she is getting a few of the black stripes but its her beak that worries me, is this normal? sorry i dont have a pic.
Is my african grey's beak normal???
This is quite normal and should not be woried about as the birds do flake small aounts off thier beak as it is constantly growing. One of the best things to provide is a concrete perch so that the claws are worndown as well as giving the bird a hard ebrasive surface to rub its beak on. More hints and care sheets are available on me web site. I own a pet store
What are the best search engines in 2018?
Great question, and it really depends on the search you’re devising. I’m not going to answer this in a way that’s been done before by giving you search stats. Instead I’m going to break down into how search engines help people.QuestionsIf you need an answer for a question you’ll more than likely conduct a Google search. For example if you search “how many tennis balls fit into an airplane”, you’ll be given an answer box with the answer.Not to mention Google has got you covered for pretty much any search.ServicesI’d have to give this to Google once again.If you’re in need of a plumber, the chances are it’s quite urgent. Thanks to Google’s local pack it’s incredibly easy to find a plumber local to you.Depending on your location, I can almost guarantee if you simply search the keyword “Plumber” you will be given a list of plumbers local to you.VideoI’m going to give this one to YouTube.YouTube has everything from pranks to educational videos. Often when I’m getting familiar with something I’m not used to, I’ll go to YouTube and watch videos that help with my problem.ShoppingThis one for me varies, if I’m looking for product reviews or a product X vs product Y article, I’ll head on over to Google.But, if I’m buying something I’ll do two things, I’ll Google the product I want and I’ll head on over to Amazon.ConclusionI’ve no doubt Google will continue to have the majority of searches again in 2018. But in terms of the best search engine - in my opinion - it all comes down to what you’re searching for.P.s - if you wish to see a more conventional list, head on over to Lifewire’s article The Best Search Engines of 2018
Cockatiel grinding beak??
You sounded just like me! :D I got my lovebird about a week ago, and one day while I was eating dinner, I heard this weird grating sound, I looked over, and my lovie kept scraping his lower mandible against his upper. At first, I thought he was choking on his pellet and I couldn't help but feel worried. When I looked this up, the info that I got was that even though nobody knows quite why parrots do this, scientists think it's because they are trying to file their beak down, and/or it shows a sign of contentment and self security, and possibly that they are about to go to sleep because they are so secure and happy. I agree with this, because every time my lovie makes this sound, a few minutes later, he's got his beak tucked in nicely on his back, and fast asleep! So don't worry, this is completely normal, and by the fact that he's grinding his beak, it looks like you are doing a fine job taking care of him and making him feel welcome. I hope that helped!
I have no motivation to continue with my life. What can I do?
The Eagle has the longest life-span of its species. It can live upto 70 years.But to reach this age, the eagle must make a very difficult decision!In its 40th year, the eagle's long and flexible Talons can no longer grab a prey which serves as food.Its long and sharp beak becomes bent.Its old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly.Then, the eagle is left with only two options: DIE or go through a painful process of CHANGE!This process lasts for 150 days (5 months)The process requires the eagle to fly to a mountain top and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out.Then the eagle will wait for the new beak to grow back after which it will pluck out its talons. When its talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old aged feathers.And after this the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and LIVES for 30 more years!!Why is Change needed???In order to survive and live. We too have to start the change process.We sometimes need to get rid of the unpleasant old memories, negative habits and our fixed mind set.Only Freed from the past burdens can we take advantage of the present.If an eagle can make a life saving and life changing decision at the age of 40....why can't we?In order to take on a New Journey ahead, let go of your negative old limiting beliefs.Open up your mind and let yourself fly high like an eagle!When it rains, all birds occupy shelter. But the EAGLE avoids the rain by flying above the clouds....The problem is common to all but the attitude to solve it makes the difference!Don't be afraid of change...accept it gracefully..!!!Source: Read it on quora somewhereEDIT 1:People have raised their brows regarding the accuracy of the piece. I agree that this is just a parable, an analogy nothing else. It might not have a shred of reality in it but it certainly is a good motivator which is the reason I shared it here.You may also like to read : Anurag Kureel's answer to When do you know your life has changed?
5 Year Old Budgie's Upper Beak Overgrown...Please Help?
I read that in some cases of overgrown beaks that liver disease can be suspected. Normal playing, chewing on toys and perchs should maintain her beak only in extreme cases would actually trimming be required. Can the bird still eat properly, most adjust accordingly as it didnt become over gown over night. Or do you just THINK its over grown? I am not going to lecture you but the bird should not just be on a seed diet get it some pellets and fresh fruits and veggies for health reasons If I might give you a suggestion in regards to fruits and veggies again not trying to lecture. I have 10 birds of the 10, 4 are parakeets and with my parakeets they ONLY way they will eat fresh is if its stuck threw the cage bars (next to their highest level perch is what they perfer) they also LOVE apples (peel and seeds removed) so I shove a slice through the bars and it will be gone in no time. Also if you can buy these things called HEALTHY TOPPINGS (its in the bird food asle made by Kaytee) they come in many varietys and one is Carrots and Greens another is Cocanut and raspberries. Remember w parakeets the smaller the pieces the better.Also if you ever hold him let him have what your eating a nibble of bananna, grape w skin removed no seeds, lettuce but NOT iceburg,string cheese, chicken, pizza crust, whole grain bread, cooked pasta. And dont give up try and try again. Im just trying to be helpful
The Theory of Evolution vs. the Theory of Adaptation?
Ok, I agree w/ natural selection, I've been to the Galapagos and seen it's effects! When a drought comes there is only 1 food source for the birds & that is inside the cactus. There are 2 birds, the birds w/ long beaks vs. birds w/ small. They were living great & fine until this drought, now the birds w/ the long beaks can dig into the cactus deep enough to get to the nurishment it offers, birds w/ short beaks can't & sadly die off. I just have trouble believe it was all so random... I give evolutionists props man! I mean, I think that's WAY harder to have faith in that than intelligent design. Let me see if I get this right, can you let me know? I had an evolutinist explain it like this. "You drop the parts of a watch over & over, eventually, it'll come together & make the watch."? What if the basic life-forms were there & they ADAPTED into what they are today? I believe in adaptation, but the randomness of it all? HOW cud we all come from 1 thing?
What is the best object to use when cutting yourself?
While, as others have done, I could simply advise you to seek help, I know from first-hand experience it would, at best, be of very little effect, and at worst would only serve to worsen your emotional state (that being said, if you are willing to seek help, do so). For that reason, I will answer earnestly and to the best of my knowledge in hope that you will at least avoid making the same mistakes I have made.First off, always use clean blades. No rust, and clean them before and after use.Secondly, it all depends on what you are seeking and what you want to avoid when harming yourself. For example, if you want to avoid overly-visible, long-lasting scars, while still feeling pain, needles and dull - or serrated - blades (such as scissors) are your best bet, though, if possible, avoid the serrated ones as they CAN leave a nasty scar if not careful.If you don’t mind the scars, disposable razor blades can cut deep enough that it hurts while still not going completely through the skin. As a teenager, I had a fancy for box-cutters. Don’t use those. They are very hit-or-miss and you end up needing stitches way too often.In my case, it’s all about blood. As much as possible. And I don’t care about the rest.Now, I try never to preach what I don’t practice, but this is the exception, so here is what you should do if that’s the case :Use any alternative possible. Red dye in warm water, blood from the butcher shop, etc. Anything! I know what happens when cutting gets that bad, and I can tell you, you do not want to get there.DO NOT USE any kind of sharp-edged kitchen knives such as butcher knives. Seriously, they cut through skin like butter and you don’t even realize it’s gone through till it’s too late. Butcher knives = stitches, lots of them.You need blood to live. You need that blood to stay inside you. If it doesn’t, you get dizzy, then you pass out, then you die. Always patch wounds up as soon as possible. Don’t do like I do and let it seep out.And finally, and that applies to cutting in general, never, ever, do it while inebriated. Alcohol and cutting always end badly. I’ve been there, I’ve done that, I still do, and if you pass me by in the street, you can tell immediately, even in winter.However, I still hope you can avoid resorting to such a way of coping with whatever you’re dealing with (or, if you’re like me, to such a way to get a kick out of life).
