Re: Hello to all

Welcome again and thank you again for coming to this little one’s rescue!

Crushing up the pellets and sprinkling them over his food is a great way to get him used to the taste and get him ingesting at least some healthier food whether he realises it or not, I’ve used this method myself with a stubborn cockatiel and it worked a treat!

The only things I’d add is that you cannot be too careful with cats around. Cats harbour bacteria in their claws and teeth which can make the merest scratch lethal.

For this little guy to have ended up being literally thrown out with the trash you can only imagine what his former life was like. Yet despite what his previous circumstances were, it was the only life he knew and the people in his life were his flock (even though they may have been pretty feral!) Keep this in mind when you’re interacting with him because old habits die hard with parrots so earning his trust may take time. Doubtless he is in for a much better life going forward and we are happy to have you aboard!

Re: Hello to all

We decided to name him/her Trico. Since we don't know the sex and Trico sounds male and female. Also, I loved the Last Guardian

Re: Hello to all

Welcome and be welcomed. Thank you for rescuing this guy, people can be so callus sometimes, throwing this life away in the trash, makes me boil. You are getting such good advice here, I hope it works out for you and the new addition.

Trust - its what makes or breaks a human/parrot relationship. I would avoid taking him out until he accepts treats from your hand, because chasing a parrot around and toweling them is a for sure trust buster.

Good luck!

Re: Hello to all

Don't add anything to the water, there is no need. Vinegar can be irritating.

Re: Hello to all

We got Trico to the vet today and he is healthy and the vet said the missing feathers he has around his eyes and head is because of poor diet and molting at the same time.
He will regain his feathers with the diet we give him now
Also, HE LET ME RUB HIS FEATHERS TODAY. He wasn't flying around when I put my hand in the cage ))))
