I rescue a IRN and now i need rescue myself

Hi all,

Giorgio here from Dubai. Over a month back i rescue an injured (from a cat) IRN and after long treatment at the vet she manage to survive and she is all well now.
She stay at the vet for treatment for nearly 30 days. The Vet told me that she is a juvenile and there is a chance that she will not fly again.

After bringing her home (I am assuming is her) and for the first 5 days things were going fairly well. With the help of treats she started coming out of her cage stepping up on my hand, walking around, coming to have treats and even sit on my solder.

She was though always cautious and any fast move will scare her.

Suddenly and for no reason she stopped doing all these she does not come out of her cage unless i open the door (which i do always when i am home) and something scares her, then she flies out). She spends some time on the floor and then she climbs the curtains and she stays for hours on the top of the curtain close to the ceiling.and she does not respond to anything no even treats to get her down i need to use a towel.

When she is in her cage she is quite and when i approach she withdraws herself on one of the top corners of the cage and stay there.

I have been reading about the bluffing stage but i am not sure that this may be the case.


Any advise or comment from the community is well appreciated.


Thank you in advance

Giorgio

Hi and welcome! What you did is far above what the average person would do! Thank you! IRNs can be tough to win over! Is this little one originally wild?

Hi there. Try to not have to towel your IRN, that is a trust busting action for certain. I think it would better to leave her in her cage, and offer treats thru the bars for now, every time you pass near, or have to go into it to change water and food. She must see you as the bringer of good things like treats, and not the guy who brings the scary monster towel.

Re: I rescue a IRN and now i need rescue myself

So well stated above! Using a towel to get your Parrot down commonly removes any Trust s/he had developed. The good news is, you can start over from step one, like when you brought your Parrot home!
It is best to use a ladder or a step stool to retrieve your Parrot from high places.
The best way to understand Parrots is that they have no natural reason to trust Humans. So, when we are around them or interacting with them, always start from the position of building their Trust. And as stated above, "only good things happen when Humans are around."
Time is on your side, just keep working on building Trust!
Welcome to Parrot Forums and Thank You for rescuing your IRN.

Hey! Congrats on rescuing the Ringneck. Feed him/her with your hand, but don't force it.
