OH MY GOD, i need to somehow stop !! haha, added another one, I'd say by an accident... I wanted a Quaker prior to getting our naughty green cheek and today a opportunity came up and I took one in without hesitating at all, (Their chatter/scream is actually a lot more irritating then IRN's) I never imagined that anyone can top IRN's screams but today I got convinced that there are worse sounds. Our Quaker, 4 months old male was hand rearer ( unfortunately clipped wings) However I think its very recent because the he's trying to fly but it doesn't really work out well for him ;-(.... sadly I only find this out after visiting the bird otherwise wouldn't have visited as all of our birds are flying pretty much most of the day but after seeing him was too late to leave without the bird. I have a question in regards to the parrot behaviour, it's been at least 8 hours since we took him he's not very keen on interractions and seems a bit shy and backing up from hands, also keeping big distance between our conure ( irn's not introduced yet ), whereby our conure was full of hapyness since literally coming out of the carrier bag, as I had bad experience with IRN's seller/breeder I just hope this one is truly tamed & was hand reared, I understand that birds need time to settle in and I am little inexperienced in that as IRN's were the first ones we had and they were completely opposite our conure. The Quaker came out of a breeder who was selling all sort of birds and the little guy was friendly with an amazon but now seems scared of a conure. How much time should we give him/ avoid interactions with him to settle in ? He was hand reared and as I mentioned the conure was full of hapyness and straight jumped on me out of the carrier and this is opposite, he looked for a place to hide as well I let him be now put his cage in a corner, he also started eating now I'd like to sex all my birds just to know what gender they are, anyone can recommend a good place to do so ? how do you even pluck a feather out for the DNA testing ?
