Breeding bird or pet?

Post by Jewels » Tue May 03, 2011 4:55 pm

Hi, I was just wondering if there was any quick way to tell if my IRN was kept by its orevious owner to breed or a pet.

I havent had her long, but everytime anyone goes near her cage, she seems to scream, a real harsh, shrilling scream.

I thought maybe she was kept tp breed before and had no interacion with anyone and thats shy shes so scared of people.

It sounds like it. A tame bird normally will come to greet you, and while it will squark it wont do it in an alarmed fashion as your bird seems to be doing.

how old is your bird? sounds like an avary bird or just scared as you have not had her long.. even when my male was tame (hes now a breeder) he was very possessive/protective of his cage so could be just possessive? .. if its an older bird perhaps a breeder?.. sorry cannot be sure.
