Re: Adopted an Alexandrine- Feather Issues & Behaviour Quest

I forgot to add, I have switched her to the African Vetafarm pellets that we have for our Ringnecks on the advice of our vet.

I don't know if I should have switched her over so soon, or weaned her onto them but she is eating them eagerly

Re: Very Quiet Baby-Normal???

Iv got 2 14-16ish week old babies and neither of them make much noise either.
