- 3 female cockatiels, one male and one female green cheek
This is Yoshi. Yoshi has had a head full of pinfeathers for about two months now. I know some people take the keratin sheaths off for their parrots, since they can't exactly reach them themselves. I also know some birds preen each other and remove them.
1. Yoshi hates other birds. 2. Yoshi hates fingers. I can scritch him for a little while and he loves it until he realizes it's a hand, and then he draws blood.
Does anybody have any suggestions for ways I can break up the little casings without losing a finger? He seems pretty itchy and grumpy.
