Re: Pakshi pretty tail feathers - is he more than a Green IR

U did offend as u said u didn't think MY bird was beautiful cos of his wings. I bought him as I was told from the lady who handraised him that she took him to a vet and this was how the clipped his wings. I was not aware there are specific rules on how one should cut the wings. This is my first IRN....

Re: New Bird

Hi Ellie, I am about an hour south east of boonah. But as far as I know boonah is ok. I haven't heard any news re: floods in my area or surrounds. Maybe call hospital if u can to check? Or give scenic rim council a call :-) I pray she is safe :-)

Re: Pakshi pretty tail feathers - is he more than a Green IR

Ok well u can get off ur high horse. I bought pakshi from a handraiser 2 months ago and SHE clipped his wings! I am letting them grow back in as I don't like the fact that he hasn't any flight. So before u accuse people of animal cruelty, perhaps you should ask! I am deeply offended by your inaccura...

Re: Pakshi pretty tail feathers - is he more than a Green IR

thanks for the advice - maybe it is the weather - it has been pretty horrid for a month now.

So far I am safe from major floods - although the little community i am in has been flooded in for few days now. Everything will right itself soon.

thank you for being so helpful Glenn ^^ as far as i can tell the black markings are only a recent thing.

is it normal for greens to have tail feathers like his? Or will they eventually go completely green as he ages?

Re: is Leg ring necessary?

My bird Pakshi also has a leg ring.

He came with it from the lady who hand-raised him.

I assumed it was something to do with breeders. Like an ID of the breeder or something?

I would also like to know why they have leg rings. Can you take them off?

Thanks for that Dana TBH I had no idea green tea contained so much caffeine.

Hi dana, Thanks for your reply - I figured caffeine was bad. As far as I can see the packet says 100% green tea. If there were to be caffeine in the tea, it would be a very minute amount.
