I got a plum headed parakeet about 2 months ago and have a couple questions about plum heads in general and also about how to avoid him crashing into walls. He is about a year and a half old and his feathers have been clipped his whole life. Now that they are growing back he has started to fly and is really good at it but he seems to freak out when trying to find a place to land and keeps crashing into walls at a pretty decent speed. He crashed into a wall earlier today and this was by far the scariest one. He seemed very slightly dazed at first but less than five minutes later he seems to be perfectly fine, he is acting completely normal except for the fact that he won't leave my shoulder, but I think that maybe the crash just scared him. There doesn't seems to be any bruising or inflammation, and his beak took the hardest hit so I grabbed his beak to see if he would react to it but he seemed totally fine with it and let me do it no problem. I would really like for him to be able to fly around freely and am currently planning to build an aviary for him so I am trying to find the quickest way to build his confidence in flying so he can land safely. My other question is about plum heads in general. I can't find a lot online about them so if anyone has any information about their personalities and any other info that would be great. Mine is super shy but the sweetest bird I could have asked for. He is terrified of hands because of how he was handled at the place we bought him from but we are working through that. Any info on how to do that better would also be greatly appreciated.
