Newbie to forum
I am new to this forum. I was hoping to find a nice live parrot chat that I could visit now and then and talk to other parrot people.
I have 3 GCC, a WBC and new to me ... an IRP (indian ringneck parakeet). I picked up the IRP last night from what was a so-so home. She's got a vague history of neglect, unknown age but definately 5 previous owners. She was frightened when I moved her to her transport cage and bit me, not breaking my skin but breaking a good chunk off the tip of her beak. Now what to do? I worry she has a mineral deficiency or a metabolic problem to have a beak that would break so easily. She also has lost ALL of her tail feathers though her previous owners say she did not pluck them. She was in a large cage so it's not that they rubbed or broke off.
I don't know what to do. Poor thing. I just wanted to help her out and try to bring her back to health and happiness.
Thanks for listening ...
