Hi all!

My fiance and I are going to visit a rescue and two birds in particular have stuck out to me: an IRN and a special needs cockatiel.
We already have a GCC and an African Grey.
I've never owned a bird like an IRN so does anyone have any advice on meeting this bird or owning this bird, how to interact and gain its trust?
Thank you!

Is the IRN already tame? Irns and cockatiels are my favorites lol

In that case I think you need more info before choosing. It’s possible to tame or retame and IRN but it is MUCH HARDER than other birds, and some will never be tame no matter what you do.

So we got him and he is tame. He is also special needs so he doesn't speak that much and he can't fly.
We think he is about 5.
