Urgent Help Needed!!!

Hi People, I bought 2 new Ringnecks today their names is Coco (blue) and Charlie (White) and their both around 2 years old.



I need some advice about Cocos tail, his biting his tail for some reason

Charlie's previous owners didn't treat her right at all, breaks my heart but they burned her with cigarettes and she was poked with sticks and she's missing few nails is it possible to tame her, she's very anxious all the time and bites like hell.

Re: Urgent Help Needed!!!

Is it possible: YES!!! Without a question! Dump all your expectation regarding time and assure that ONLY Good Things Happen When Humans are around!!! Think in terms of years and bless every tiny moment of trust!

Regarding tail feathers and feathers in general. A good misting from above (mist up into the are above and allow it to fall like rain) will help with general feather condition and also skin. NOTE: You Need a fine plant misting bottle, not a standard spray bottle!

Worth checking for bugs as you have no way to know if that could have been a prior problem.

Re: Urgent Help Needed!!!

OMG!!! That's just terrible!! I'm sure there are training techniques to handle the very well-deserved anxiety - poor baby. I'm just reaching out to comfort you and let you know that you have been heard. There are others here who are much more experienced at this than I am, so keep watching this and they'll respond.

Re: Urgent Help Needed!!!

Thank you sailboat for the great advice, I'll definitely start the process with her. I bought a hand glove so that I can take her out of the cage for few hours daily and this way she can bite all she want, as soon as she stops I'll take the glove away, and bought her few toys aswell.
As for Coco I did check for bugs but there aren't any. But I'll definitely get the misting bottle thanks.

Re: Urgent Help Needed!!!

They are beautiful! I’m so glad you found them! My RN came from a bad situation too :/ From my research trust is a really big deal for them. I found this article really helpful Working with Fearful Parrots: A Study in Videos | Learning Parrots and the site Ringneck.com - I think it is. It is a ringneck forum that’s not active (doesn’t seem to accepting new members) but you can read about how others have rescued abused RNs and how they gained trust from their birds.
Wishing you the best of luck! Please update!!

Re: Urgent Help Needed!!!

Hi Littleredbeak, Thank you I will read the article, every last bit of advice will help. I did register for that forum about a month ago but still waiting for confirmation. But I'll read their posts thanks.

It's just so heart breaking that people can actually do this..

Re: Urgent Help Needed!!!

Welcome and be welcomed. THank you for rescuing this beautiful Ringneck!

With her history and the general proclicity of Ringnecks to revert to an almost wild state when not handled and interacted with by humans, you have a lot to make up for, totally not your fault. She has zero reasons to trust humans right now, and with parrots its all about trust. I would refrain from taking her out just now, and the use of a glove usually does not alleviate that lack of trust (may even work against building trust). You must abandon your expectations of the parrot, and let her proceed at her own pace, which might be months or even longer, before she trusts humans again.

I would first of all get her a bigger cage, the one in the pics looks more like a cage for a budgie or other small parrot. Second, try to determine what her favorite treat or food is - that will be your ambassador to gaining her trust. When ever you pass her cage drop one of the favored treats into her food bowl, or even set up a separate bowl just for this. Do it every time! She has to learn that good things come from humans. As far as handling her, place a chair in the room and sit. If she becomes agitated, move the chair back a few feet, until she calms down. Read to her while sitting there in a clam and soothing voice. An excellent read is the I Love Amazons thread in the Amazon subforum, it has so much info that is applicable to all parrots. after a few days of this, move the chair a few feet closer, or until she shows signs of agitation again, and move the chair back til she calms down. Repeat. as time progresses, you will gradually be allowed closer to her cage with out upsetting her. Once you are right next to the cage, you can begin trying to open the cage and start training for step up, etc. Do not let her out until she has learned step up, because you will have to chase her around to get her back into the cage and that is a MAJOR trust busting thing. Major!

She has had a pretty horrible life so far, I am so grateful you adopted her. Gve her the time and patience she needs to open up and be a parrot again, and you will be rewarded!

Re: Urgent Help Needed!!!

Hi wrench13, that was just her travel cage, she's now in a different cage, her cage measures 62cm x 82cm x 148cm high.

Thanks for that great advice which I'll definitely follow.

For the first 2 years of her life she's been eating only seeds so I'll slowly introduce her to other foods.

Once again thank you so very much.
