Re: HELP!!

Thanks you so much Molossus! Really do appreciate the info and suggestions, my boys mean the world to me, I've organised some disolvable antibiotics which also have added calsium effects and so on to their water, they both seem really healthy and happy, but you can never be too sure..

Re: HELP!!

Tinus it sounds as if you have pigeon fly issues. they are flat, fast moving, flying blood suckers and can be easily dealt with. go to any pigeon supply specialist and they will help. treatment can be Ivomec spray , karbadusting etc. these are bloodsucking parasites that have been known to cause ps...

I tried, uploaded to imageshack, it still tells me to remove my offsite url's and that my post looks spammy for a new user.

I'm curious to know, are your ringnecks cuddly as well? Mine aren't at all, as lovable as they are, they are 'hands off'

Not all of them get along. They have their scuffles...believe me lol. But they have wings so if they don't like someone, they can fly elsewhere. They know who they can and can't play with. Who will and won't bite them :wink: I have additional perches in other rooms for them to escape to also. Usual...

It is indeed! its always nice to hear what other people do to make their birds feel more comfortable, and then hearing what the bird's reaction was, in the end i think it goes back to basics, let your bird be, while taking the necessary precautions and looking after them, thats the only way the bird...
