Weird behavior for a 6 year old?

I posted earlier about my 6 year old IRN's plucking problem. Thanks to all the useful information people shared with me. Something worked because he is not plucking as much anymore. Do 6 years molt? There is another problem though. For some reason, he won't perch on my finger when I ask him to. Tael...

Re: Curious Little Beak

I think they clean their tongue. My parrots do that every often and it's right before they sleep/doze off.

Re: Just another newbie

I'm so glad you found it useful. I must admit I haven't made the time to go through it all myself yet... but the bits I've cleaned from it have ben useful and I'm looking forward to making the time to do more. I think it's really fantastic that the author has made all of this available for free! El...

Re: Please Help

I can image how frustrating it must be. But let me first clarify something, I don’t believe plucking is a symptom of depression but rather a neurotic behavior. I think many people are quick to say that parrots pluck due to depression—but it’s much more complicated and EVERY case is different. Did t...

Re: Just another newbie

I already got a female IRN as a companion for him. They fight too much if kept together so I am keeping them in side by side cages. And this behavior started recently, a good 3-4 months after I got this female IRN.

My beautiful baby Shabbo

Shabbo was the sweetest green IRN ever! She never bit anyone and was such a great company. She loved being handled. One time she was sitting on my shoulder, a lady she was scared of came in and she got spooked and flew into a ceiling fan. She broke her leg and even though we took her to various vets...

My 5 year old IRN was hand raised and always been handled. The thing is, he is pulling out his feathers and sometimes he makes really painful noises. Imran told me to ignore it (in case it is mutilation) but can someone please tell me why he would do that? He is plucking under his wings and new feat...

Re: Just another newbie

I love my little guy too much to consider another bird.

Labour is pretty cheap around here. I will try to place an order for a block of wood with drilled hole in the middle so I can hang it or something.

Thanks for your advice. :)

Just another newbie

Hi there, I have two IRNs. I am having problems with both of them at the moment. I searched the net and was very grateful to have found this site. My first RN Taelon has been with us for almost 4 years. He is probably around 6-7. In the time he's been with us, he got injured twice but never have I h...
