Minor update 15-Feb-2018
Hear are some pictures of my birds.
My first bird is a Patagonian Conure called Chewey.
Chewey, because he will shred wood, paper, furniture, leather, indeed the whole house.
I obtained him when he was 6 months old. He is 14 years old now and getting grumpy.
He started plucking feathers during a full moult in 2011. Even though he is out of the cage for a good period of the day he still does it even when I am playing with him. There seems to be no cure.
My other bird is a small Cockatiel I call Nutter. He is only white and grey, no red cheeks or yellow.
He has a duff leg and has lost a toe on the other foot. He has learnt to climb about almost as well as a normal bird. When I took him on he couldn't fly properly and had difficulty landing; he could only crash. Now he loves to fly for the sheer pleasure of it and can now land on anything. Even cacti!
He also had a respiratory problem whereby a small flight left him gasping for air. I managed to fix this by nebulising him over a period of six weeks. This, plus regular flying has largely solved the problem.
He is a happy friendly bird who sings well.
I now have a third bird: another Cockatiel. He was found in a sorry state near where I lived. He could not fly much and only in straight lines. It took many months with him in a harness before he could fly on his own without harming himself. He is a good flyer now but will never be like a normal bird.
To see Photos go to ‘Site Navigation’ hover on ‘Parrot’ and choose a fly out for ‘Parrot or Cockatiel’.
I try to support a few much needed bird welfare charities registered in the U.K.
