Lydia G. has 2 issues with my Indian Ringneck
Hi, my Indian Ringneck keeps flying back to her cage all the time when I take her around on my shoulder.
She won’t venture further than a foot away from it.
She also has a box she likes to spend time in and on.
She has toys to play with and I give her branches to rip up.
I keep going and getting her every time and repeat it quite a few times and she always goes back.
She was doing this at her previous owners too.
It amazes me that a lot of bloggers have a hard time coming up with ideas. I have an inventory of ideas for our Sunday morning get-togethers. Ideas are…
Kayla writes to ask:
I’m stuck between getting a conure or a quaker (ok maybe an Indian ringneck too), and could really use advice on what current owners think.
I’m hoping to find a best friend who wants to be involved, cuddly, silly, and maybe even say a few words eventually.
I mostly don’t want one who screams and screeches all day.
Is a quaker on the right track?
Sherry L. comments:
Yes, my birds are fed ‘chop’ (Arlo the grey, calls it ‘bobbity’) This is a new term for what I have done for 28+ years.
Chop is chopped veg, grains, and sometimes, a tiny bit of seed sprinkled on top or a bit of walnut, or something.
I used to cut the vegetables larger because Arlo was pretty accepting of lots of things, and I didn’t have a food processor.
I also (now) feed Arlo a pelleted diet, along with the chop.
She also gets a small amount of fruit, and sometimes about an inch square of chicken breast (baked) or some steamed scallop (yum).
We just rescued another bird and I drove 794 miles less than I did for the last one.
Of our bird-related calls, most are people seeking to acquire a “new bird”.
We will always refer them to the closest bird rescue in their area.
Yesterday (2/11/20) we got a call from a woman in Cedar Lake about 6 miles from our new place in Lowell.
(Talk about a bird rescue near me)
