I rescued a new fid

So I was perusing cl the other day and came across this poor pathetic looking g2. Figuring he was gone I thought what would it hurt to call and see if he is still there. So I did and now I am introducing sad sorru looking Percy the Goffin Too. His previous owner had a baby and could spend as much time with him. So he started pulling his feathers he even pulls them out with him feet. She had him vet checked and everything was good the vet said he needed more attention. So she decided it was best to rehome him.

Thanks everyone, he did come with his cage but I want to get him a bigger one. Even though he is out all day so his cage is just a sleep cage. But I still love my guys to have huge cages and lots of toys. He is a real sweetie loves to talk and dance. I love him already.

Thanks, hubby says he's our new pet vulture. I like the bald birds to they have personality. But the bad boy had a Pinner coming in on his cheek and I watches him reach up with his foot and tugged it out.
Well hopefully with time and attention he may stop, but if he doesn't I will love him just the way he is.

He is going to be stressed for a while..from lack of attention first and then from the move. Sprinkle Brewer's Yeast in powdered form over any foods he will eat to help him with stress and to get some good vitamins in him.

I know camomile tea helps clear out the crop and bad bacteria. Never heard of it for plucking, though it is meant to be calming for humans so maybe it works in the same way

When I got Rocky I started giving him Palm Fruit extract everyday, they only need a little bit, and his feathers have come in so much better since he's been having it, won't cure the plucking but will help with feather condition if he decides not to pull them out.

He has landed on his feet with you

Thanks, he was really dancing up a storm. Then he screams I love you, it was really cute. They said the tea will calm screaming and help calm hi, so he really doesn't want to pluck. I have been doing a ton of reasearch on it. Even hubby really likes this little guy. He normally just tolerates the fids.
