wanted an IRN got a Moustache parakeet.still happy;but help!

Post by evaleen » Tue Oct 25, 2011 10:19 pm

i'm waiting (rather impatiently) for my (2nd) IRN. i'm gonna get it after 5moths.
my best fried knows that i love birds, ad since i couldn't get an IRN now, she got me a moustache parakeet as a surprise gift.
(yaaaaaaaaaaaay!) :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

but this bird is 2years old and EXTREMELY abused. (it previously belonged to one of her relatives. we had gone there for a visit oce, and she remembered me almost crying :cry: - because the bird was treated with such cruelty. so when her relative was moving houses, she bought it off them and presented it to me.)

i'v done my research, and most places tell that these birds dont socialise well if they weren't hand reared or if they were not handled at all before the age of 1. :cry: what should i do? the bird is stupid-scared of everyone and everything! :(
all it takes is for someone to just walk past its cage, and it starts flapping and running around like its tail is on fire!
it also hits the cage bar pretty hard as it dose, so i'm even more worried that it may get injured from its fright of humans. :|
its been on a seed diet with occasional fruits. and before it came to my best friend's relative, it was in a pet store. (FYI, the pet stores in our parts are horrible to its birds, and most of the time,they catch these birds straight from the wild :evil: )

i'm worried and at a loss of how to tame it.... please help. is anyone out there with a MP too? :!: :(

p.s, its a beautiful male. (although the colour is a bit faded, and the feathers are stormed out. but to me, its gorgeous.. :oops: )

and what are the main differences between them and IRNs? dose anyone have any recommendations for any forums or artcles that specialize i MPs? the section on MPs on this site rather seems to b in hibernation... :roll:
(i guess thats expected. these birds are rare in other countries. they are quite abundant here though)
(people mostly dont buy them because of their high price. thats why budgies are more popular here. in dollars, they'd cost a mere 2.3dollars each!) (the MP would cost around 15dollars)
(ah... if only people would treat birds more for what they really deserve...) :(
