Re: How long do you leave your IRN alone in its cage all day

Good day I personally would not have a bird that is caged all / most of the day. My 3 flocks are out 8-10 hours weekdays, and longer if they wish on the weekends, due to my wife working early days and myself working afternoons. I do put them in the cages when I leave for work, and my wife lets them ...

Re: New IRN owner from Canada

Good for on the 3 month old, they are beautiful birds, as for the furniture, he is not out without supervision. Four hours in the morning, and another 4 in the late afternoon, with an all day pass Saturday and Sunday except for power naps.


Good luck with your new bird.

We may get 1/2 a dozen more screams throughout the day, but other then that a "fairly" quiet bird who talks his beak off. He loves to perch on us, and does not like to ste...

Re: Please help

Hello

I would agree with "not" clipping, I have raised feathered friends for 15 years and have never clipped wings, and, never lost a bird, or had had a death due to flying into a window etc...........be aware of yours and the birds surroundings at all times.

Re: female killing male

Ah, so sorry,

I have limited experience with IRN's, but, I would say territorial instinct/ mothers instinct to protect. Did they interact peacefully before the tragedy?

Again, so sorry for that, it must of been devastating
