Re: URGENT! new to indian ringnecks and bad experience

I think it is good practise to do a new bird check anyway. My Avian vet is about an hours drive away from me, I took my completely untamed bird there 2 days after we got her. She didn't enjoy the trip or the tests, but it is a necessary evil. It didn't get in the way of taming her at all. Just make...

Re: URGENT! new to indian ringnecks and bad experience

So I need to get Harry to a vet.... I understand this.... My issue is that he is no where near tame! Would taking him unless he is showing symptoms stress him out? He has come so far in a week I don't want to loose that! He looks healthy to my untrained eye and he has become vocal and has lots of en...

Re: URGENT! new to indian ringnecks and bad experience

Hi,

I have spoken to op via private message...

Sadly he has buried the bird so no post mortem....

It turns out we got our birds from the same place...

Any advice on what to look for in a ill bird would greatly be appreciated.

Op is also contacting websites about seller as I have done.

Re: URGENT! new to indian ringnecks and bad experience

Thanks for all your effort to help me. Unfortunately Mojo died. :((((((((( It is very hard! Although we treated him/her very well, kept him in warm and we were so sensitive we lost him/her. My guess is that he/she was already sick, because it died in 6 days. This means that the seller fooled us. Al...

Re: Ceiling fans and Cookie's incident.

It was my mistake that the ceiling fan was on and my IRN got hit by it when it was flying and i saw all these feathers coming down. It seemed okay. i checked if anything was broken or even bleeding. Cookie was fine and thank god he was. But now Cookie seemed as if i struck it and runs away from me ...
