Baby ringneck not opening one eye? Help!

As of yesterday, my baby IRN has almost completely stopped opening his right eye, except when eating. I can't see anything wrong with the eye. Is it just a phase he's passing through or could it be more serious? Please help!

Mixed species aviary?

Hello guys, I currently have a 2 week old IRN. He (or she, we'll just have to wait and see :) ) is the fuzziest and cutest thing, and just loves snuggling in my fingers! Anyways, my friend has quite a few cockatiels, and a pair of them laid eggs. He doesn't have any more space for them, and he put t...

Re: PLEASE HELP ME CLARIFY IF MY BABY IS A BOY OR GAL 2.5YRS

Hi Glamorli. I think that by now, if there's no reddish/rosy line along with the black line around its neck, it's probably a female. 2 and a half years means it is an old juvie or a young adult, so yeah. Its relationship with other birds depends a lot on its personality. Sometimes, males will fight ...

Re: my indian ringneck won't eat....help!!!

Did you try tube feeding? I don't especially like it, but my baby bird refused to eat food when I bought him (or maybe he was confused, I dunno) so I had to use tube feeding. I wouldn't call it force feeding, because they don't struggle or squawk or anything, but I only use it as a last resort since...

Re: Hand-Feeding and Weaning

I tried cup feeding my baby IRN, but he absolutely refuses to eat it. Finger feeding doesn't work either. He had gone without food for almost a day so I decided to tube feed him. It feels sad every time I do it, I dunno if he gets distressed when feeding him like that, but he just refuses to eat. I ...

Re: Raw meat

I wouldn't be comfortable giving meat to my birds. They don't eat any in the wild (except maybe insects), so I highly doubt that they'd be able to properly digest all of it.
They might also get worms.

Re: What to Feed your Parrot (recipes, toxicities, links too

Very informative, thanks :D
I'd heard that avocado was no good for sparrows and mynahs as it could be toxic; does the same apply to IRNs?

How to remove crusted poop from my baby ringneck's leg?

I just bought a baby ringneck a few days back. It's my second time with baby birds, the first being with sparrows I rescued from some local kids. The thing is, he poops a LOT :lol: . And while that may not be a problem, his poop gets stuck to the matting (currently I use jade strings), and it then c...
