What a dancer lol

Post by Eclipzia » Tue May 20, 2008 4:20 pm

I was reading on here about IRN liking certain types of music and I through on Dave Matthews band and he went crazy lol. He has been running back and forth on his perch and scretches when I turn it off haha.

Question - I received him from another person and I noticed when I got him home he has a crack in his beak, shouls this be something to worry about, he has been eating pleanty and very active.

Thanks for all of your support, it is surely appreciated.

I tried to get as close as I can and doct this up so it hopefully will be clearer

still will not let me too close but that will take time :)

Also please excuse thae cage ahh, would like to paint it but i am thinking it needs to be non toxic powder coat but its huge and he seem to like it .

For 3 nights we have sat together with the cage open and calming coaxing words but he still does not trust enough to come out.

The noises they make are so funny, they dont even sound like an animal let alone a bird, this is by far the most entertaining breed of birds I have
had.

im not a vet or anything but that looks harsh! have you had it checked out by a vet? even if it is an old wound i still would, just to check everything is fine and itll heal up alright.

ive never seen anything like that before! i wonder what could have caused it. hes still a beauty though

I have a breeder IRN that's beak looks just like that and before I got him he was bit by a Cockatoo. Your birds beak looks healed and it will always look like that not much you can do about it.

It does look pretty nasty i would also recommend getting him seen by a vet it looks like he has trauma to his nostril i wonder if it may effect his breathing?

Great news!! We had our first check up and although it looks nasty it is not threatening. I am still not sure exactly how this had happened but I am glad to hear that he is alright.

A little bit of an update, he now has a name Indiana, no more birdie no name. His cage sits by my budgies and I am thinking that he thinks he is an overgrown budgie as he is now making their sounds. He is was to funny because he will chat up a storm but as soon as he sees you he will go mute again.

Thanks for you support.
