  1. @ BernadetteReilly:
    This is the first time iv rehomed a bird at this age, 28 years is a long time. Iv always had birds from baby, either just weaned or hand reared myself. I just feel so sorry for this bird and wanted to give him a chance. His cage smells of ciggarette smoke, he has pinned feathers on his head and a missing nail/toe. He didnt even have food in his bowl or water, no paper at the base of his cage. U could see his cage had never been cleaned either.
  2. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Ammies are different to other birds and they are very different in personalities from each other. Male blue fronts are known as one of the three "hot zones" they can be very hot tempered in other words. Pin feathers are good. A good misting will clean up the feathers. Make an appointment for him to be health checked with full bloods taken as they are prone to liver issues. Youve just got him so he isnt going to trust you. You need to type all the above in the training section to get help and he
  3. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    Will more than likely need a diet readjustment to add more vitamin A and lots of fruit and veggies
  4. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    ave copied everything into the training section for you @BernadetteReilly
  5. ChristineBula @ ChristineBula:
    Looking for some advice, I have a female Kakariki who will be 1 year old on 5 th Feb, she was hand reared and used to quite happily sit on my hand. She doesn’t really like being touched now or sitting on my hand. She will sit on my shoulder or leg. Any advice?
  6. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    As they grow up children do tend to move away from their parents .... and yes you read that correctly, If your viewed as their parent (main care giver) when young so as not to end up inbreeding they will change their attitude towards you
  7. @ Lori Robinson:
    My Ring Neck Parriott is breathing heavily does anyone know what is wrong
  8. Greys Mum @ Greys Mum:
    With his beak open? Has anything startled him or been sprayed or burnt?
  9. @ Lori Robinson:
    no not with his beak open, just watching his chest, no nothing like that
  10. Greys Mum @ Greys Mum:
    He's perhaps had a mad flyabout has he?
  11. @ Lori Robinson:
    what?
  12. Greys Mum @ Greys Mum:
    When my greys have flown around the room alot, they get out of breath. I call it a mad fly about lol
  13. Greys Mum @ Greys Mum:
    Has his breathing slowed now?
  14. @ Lori Robinson:
    no flying, he has been breathing hard for a few days
  15. @ Lori Robinson:
    How do I clean his nostrils out. He is not handled alot, so I do not want to stress him out anymore that I do. I will put him under the water in the sink, he likes that and maybe will clean out his nostrals
  16. Greys Mum @ Greys Mum:
    A warm spray would help or a steamy shower
  17. Greys Mum @ Greys Mum:
    You might need a vet, if his nostrils are runny, he could have an infection
  18. Greys Mum @ Greys Mum:
    Lori,postt in the health section
  19. ChristineBula @ ChristineBula:
    Strange habits, what do your birds do?
  20. DizzyBlue @ DizzyBlue:
    They all have their individual traits just like humans :)
