I would like to first introduce myself, although, new to this forum, I am the proud owner of two female Goffins.
My first bird, E-E, i adopted from a previous owner who told me she lost all her feathers at once..(I was an il-informed newby).
Fortunately, I learned very quickly that she has major plucking issues, despite my best efforts to help her, that's just the way she is, but makes up for it with an awesome personality.
My second Goffins, Luna, whom I've had about two years, is in full feather and personality to match..
I am always eager to learn more and share my experiences to help others in the same boat.:white1: I am excited to have the opportunity to get to know all of you.

Awwwww....E-E is still a cutey! I would be real careful with ropes that have come unwrapped like that. I had birds get themselves tangled in a mess with strings loosen like that.

I would like to ask everyone about a general too question... Luna and E-E do not get along like I had hoped. E-E is terrified of her which causes me to allow one out at a time. I got Luna from a previous owner as well, but her previous owner did too much back scratching, which gave her the wrong idea about her role in this situation. She now bullys E-E like she's a rival mate. Any way to correct this? I've never pet her down her back since I got her two years ago...Any advise would be great..THx in advance..
