New Here/scared bird

Postby Sjoseph358 » Thu Mar 02, 2023 7:16 pm

Hi, I am new here and looking for some advice on working with a terrified Indian Ringneck that I have recently adopted. She is less than 1 year. I am working with her at her pace, but have some questions about some things. She has been through a lot in her short life. I’m happy to be providing her with a safe, warm and entertaining home. I’d appreciate any helpful tips

Welcome to the forum and thank you for wanting to improve the poor thing's life.

Now, how long have you had her? How do you know it's a female? What, exactly, do you mean when you say she has been through a lot? Also, what do you mean when you say you are 'working' with her.

I am sorry to be asking all these questions but, for the advice to be more or less in point, we need this info.

For now, what I can tell you is that you can't really 'work' with a terrified bird. The best thing is to give them space and time, feed them right, allow them 5 to 6 hours of out of cage, keep them at a solar schedule and, most of all, keep a super consistent schedule -nothing makes a bird feel safe than knowing what is going to happen.
