    Taming/training forum?

    Just wondering if you think this would be a good idea. I think there are enough requests for information, and taming-related posts to warrant a taming/training forum. Just thought I'd put forward the suggestion.

    That could be a good idea.

    currently taming/training issues are posted in cockatiel care and other cockatiel topics.

    I'm sure dan will consider it

    If we do this, should there be one in the cockatiel section, and also one in the budgie section?

    that would make 2 additionnal forum though... it could end up very hard to manage.

    also... what would left to ask in other topics

    Dan will look into it shortly

    Goo idea - a single taming/training forum. It would have the added advantage of increasing the mingling between cockatiel and budgie people.

    I like!

    Not only that, but taming and training of the two breeds is basically the same, for me anyway. It's just taking longer with Angel

    That's what I was thinking. The less forums there are, the less confusing it is to people, and with forums for other topics/questions, would this really be needed?

    Hello, and welcome to Tailfeathers.

    It is very possible that your budgie is grieving the loss of her friend. Animals react to loss, too. I would encourage you too give her some time, not push her too much right now.

    Also, you say your other budgie died, but did not say what from. If your other budgie (Nik) was sick with an infectious disease, your current budgie may be sick as well. You should take the budgie you have now into the vet and make sure her health is fine. The fact that she's not eating is not a good sign.

    If you have other questions/comments, please post them in the "Budgie Dangers and Health" forum, located here:pub98.ezboard.com/fthecockatielstopsmessageboardfrm37

    I hope things go better for you. Please keep us updated.
