Welcome to the forum. Is the linnie still having to be fed (is it unweaned basically)?

Welcome to the forum, Ann. I have a bourkes and a linnie, too. They are wonderful birds. My daughter actually owns the bourkes, and my son actually owns the linnie, but I get to play with them all. (I do NOT, however, get to clean the cages. My daughter loves to clean cages, so I don't have to do any of that.)

I thought your threads were duplicates, so I merged them. Then I realized they were not duplicates in the first place. I'm sorry about that, but I don't know how to reverse the action. I am a fairly new moderator, and I am still learning. All of the posts from both threads are on here, so nothing has been lost.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

no, his breeder hand fed the clutch, he is eatting on his own, and playing with EVERYthing he can get his little beak on! he is the most entertaining bird we have ever had! he gets a little agressive about our eyelids, we are trying the ach, ach, thing that every one recommended. i am learning a lot from reading all these forums!

He could be getting really stressed with them being around him, try moving the cage into a different room. If that isn't the case it could be a heavy molt, but I mean try and catch him in the act and see if he is plucking. I always thought my tiel was just going through a very bad molt but I caught him on a few occasions now with little feathers around his beak

will do TODAY!! i'll also watch him but i think the canaries are stressing him - he's always been next to my other birds but the canaries are are new and mating - now sitting on eggs - so he's not used to that? weird little bird, who knows how they think! but i hate to see plucked birds, the lady who gave me her canaries, had lots of plucked birds, she didn't seem to think anything of it, but to me it means HELP! I"M STRESSED! thanks,,,,,,
