hi!! im new here and need some help!

hi, i just went and got my parakeet yesterday from petco. i have done lots of research, this is the first time i have ever had a parakeet. but i have raised chickens, three dogs, and a rabbit. know when i first got my parakeet she did not have any poop stuck to her butt, but today she has poop stuck to her but and i cant get it off becuz she will not let me get even close to her. she is very new and young and is scared right know, i was wondering what i should do about the poop? amd also when can i start getting her use to me. do i wait a few weeks? thanks.

Re: hi!! im new here and need some help!

Hello & welcome to the PFs. Congratulations on your first ever parrot, very exciting.

Glad you found us, we are here to help.

Try placing a shallow bowl of luke warm water at the bottom of her cage & maybe she'll clean herself off?

Here is a link to get you started on earning her trust.
Tips for Bonding and Building Trust

Best of luck to you both! Please add some pictures.

Re: hi!! im new here and need some help!

Welcome to you and your new parakeet, thanks for joining! Please know there is a lengthy period of adjustment measured in weeks or longer. Tami's trust/bonding thread is quite helpful. Birds are keen observers of their environment and require time, patience, and love.

I would typically suggest asking the seller for advice regarding the poop, but big-box stores are notoriously ill equipped. A bathing bowl might help as birds frequently groom. You are welcome to upload an image of the situation, might help us determine if further action is required. (none of us are vets or techs, but collective experience is helpful)

Re: hi!! im new here and need some help!

Congrats!

Welcome and be welcomed. As far as getting her used to you, figure out her favorite treat, and every time you pass her cahe offer it to her, or put into a special bowl, used only for this. All birds need a cooling off time, for some its afew days, for some its longer, a few weeks or even months. Patience is the vital key here.

Good Luck!
