Hello!My name is Catherine and I have a western rosella for a year now. My husband is her favorite one as she sits on his shoulder and listens to what he says.The problem is that for a few months now, she started pulling off her feathers and we can’t stop her. We try not to leave her alone for many hours, put her out of the cage to fly and find her new toys to play but she keeps that habit on.
Rosella’s are not usually the best “pets”. They really prefer to have a mate. While she was young she was okay with your human husband, but now, I think she wants one of her own.You may do her the most justice by getting her a nice big flight cage and a male. Once she bonds with the male, she will forget ALL about you and your husband. If they have prodigy, Rosella’s are beautiful and not over running rescues all over and will be desirable.
The female lost her pet quality quickly and attacked the poor woman. She did not wish to breed birds so she found them a new home and started over.
