Bluffing Female Indian Ringneck

blue-ringneck-bluffingI adopted a possibly 2 year old IRN. I was told she was a female and given up because of nipping. She loved me at first site. She would head roll when I spoke to her, held her , she loved me and still does. After the first day the “nipping” started. I could see why someone might re-home her. It was a very hard almost blood drawing bite. I spent 2 months making friends and now I don’t have an issue. My trick was offering her an almond, she would head roll. I called step up and then I would move her. Of course it was a little more than that but my question is.. Was that a unresolved bluffing issue? Just your best guess is ok.. Thank you for your time.

Outdoor Interaction With Your Bird

Today I was out doing yard work and I had Devri with me the whole day.   I must admit I don’t mind doing the work for a variety of reasons, even though I have a gardener who comes weekly. Mostly because it’s a great way for me to incorporate my time with my birds, and it’s a time to disconnect from the world to clear my mind, develop my thoughts, or think about questions that are always on repeat inside my head.  The whole experience feels like a quick second, but before I know it, a few hours have passed and I have to move onto something scheduled for the sake of getting things done. I’m sure we can all relate, huh? Read more Outdoor Interaction With Your Bird

Frisky Indian Ringneck

White-Indian-RingneckHello…my husband and I just bought a IRN yesterday and she is so frisky. They say she is almost a yr old. How long for her to calm down and how old are they when they start to talk…

This is Luna… She is almost a year they say and she gets scared easily and her beak will do serious damage if she gets you

Thank you

It’s Dinner Time!

Whelp, I made spaghetti for dinner and thought my birds would like a taste of it. For me, it’s so important my birds be able to try all kinds of foods. Besides, the spaghetti was somewhat nutritious as it had eggplant, tomatoes, mushrooms, and lots of herbs. All that tomato sauce is perfect for them as it allows my ringnecks to get their lycopene. This nutrient is important because it boosts their antioxidants and gives them the proper nutrients for optimal skin and feathers. Read more It’s Dinner Time!
