Re: Urgent help needed!

I have two perched on the outside of the cage and open the door and allow my Perjo to do whatever she pleases in terms of staying in or coking out of the cage.

She spends 75% of her time outside the cage if it’s open. But she also enjoys going back inside of it.

Me too, also toys & crocks, for him when he is hanging out on his cage.

Give him time and please DONíT clip his wings. Itíll make things worse. Heís in a new environment and has to settle. If he doesnít want to be handled donít push it for now. He needs to adapt to his new home, sounds, food and so on. What are you feeding him? Give him fresh foods, cooked and raw vegetables- NO avocados, fruit, cooked pasta, cooked lentils, chickpeas, legumes. Healthy food helps.
Heís defending his cage. Thatís why he behaves like that. What you can also do is play classical music. It soothes many tempers. This may help calm him down. Greys are highly intelligent. Heís scared and needs time to adjust. Take your time with him-itíll be worth it.

Re: Urgent help needed!

Use a pet carrier or seperate cage to let it move to and stay in while you clean the regular one, etc. jh PS: Patience and no force. jh
