@  parrotmartin : (29 August 2014 - 10:33 PM) thankyou divegirl for allowing me tp pm you tommorow
@  arinaa112 : (29 August 2014 - 10:25 PM) Night!
@  divegirl : (29 August 2014 - 10:24 PM) I am going to bed now, early start for me :( Play nicely please :)
@  arinaa112 : (29 August 2014 - 08:36 PM) posted photos of Joey :)
@  dianaT : (29 August 2014 - 07:32 PM) Under you introductions heading of Hey I've replied.
@  arinaa112 : (29 August 2014 - 07:30 PM) i'm really not sure, i mean i don't want him getting into trouble and i heard they're friendlier when they have them clipped
@  Lou : (29 August 2014 - 07:29 PM) yeah got to your introduction so we can find out more
@  arinaa112 : (29 August 2014 - 07:29 PM) okay :)
@  Lou : (29 August 2014 - 07:28 PM) pls dont clip his wings, let the other one grow back, birds are born to fly, they need to exercise its so sad when they get clipped
@  dianaT : (29 August 2014 - 07:27 PM) Please do NOT clip his wings and if you can please go to the introduction you made earlier and we can have a chat.
@  arinaa112 : (29 August 2014 - 07:25 PM) i haven't had both his wings clipped yet, he's only had one done and i really don't want to stress him out too much with trying to get him back into his cage
@  arinaa112 : (29 August 2014 - 07:24 PM) he's a bit more chilled out now though, falling asleep i think while grinding his beak :) I think he just had a random burst of energy haha
@  arinaa112 : (29 August 2014 - 07:23 PM) yea i guess, he seemed really happy and eating. Just the constant sqwauking haha I had my last 2 birds and they never did that, i wasn't sure if he was trying to get attention or just messing about
@  KerstinB : (29 August 2014 - 07:19 PM) oh dear 5 hrs and getting on your nerves.. you have to think that this bird might be absolutely terrified, from one min to another he lost all he knew and is in a different place with ppl he dont know
@  arinaa112 : (29 August 2014 - 07:14 PM) seriously getting on my nerves
@  arinaa112 : (29 August 2014 - 07:14 PM) can someone help, i'm probably reading way too much into this but i got my parrot about 5 hours ago and he was really scared and hissing at me.. Now he's not scared of me but keeps squawking and climbing around the cage like he's bored? He's been doing the same circuit of the cage for at least a half hour now and screaming while doing it
@  Lou : (29 August 2014 - 05:34 PM) thats good to hear Martin, we shall never know but it does pay to see an avian vet even if you have to travel
@  Lou : (29 August 2014 - 05:27 PM) Martin i hope you have learnt a valuable lesson from all that has happened
@  dianaT : (29 August 2014 - 04:27 PM) Leave it til later Martin ,its all very upsetting.

When we got Zippy, we put him and Sid in their own sides of the big cage and they got on from day one. Sid had never been with another bird but he is so laid back he just took it all in his stride and now they are the best of friends

You would get a box from rob Harveys. But be prepared that they could breed and that comes with lots of responsibility.
