Re: Hello from New York

Hi and welcome Lando.
The only thing I can think of is to provide your bird with fruit and vegies to help him have nice and healthy feathers. Not sure if you can quicken the process any though, just let nature take its course I guess. :)

Just talk to her and say a simple word everytime like hello for example. The first word takes the longest. I had a couple of birds who I did not even try to teach to talk, they just copied what I was saying to them on a daily basis or what I said to my other birds.

Khalid, the photos are not showing up for me.
I do not trim my birds nails. I find they keep them down naturally when using nice sized natural perches. As for bathing, my birds also like to bath. They have a nice large bowl they hop into and have a splash around.
