@  Birdygirl : (21 October 2014 - 11:31 AM) My name is Billyboy. I'm a 17 month old Indian Lutino Ring Neck.
@  Birdygirl : (21 October 2014 - 11:23 AM) Hi there, This is a story about Billyboy and me.
I rescued him from Malta and brought him home to the UK on the 5th June 2014. Its the first time I have ever owned a bird, so I did lots of research on IRN's. It's been a love affair ever since. He actually adopted me whilst I used to go back and forth to Malta visiting a friend who originally owned him. They didn't get on. We have had the bites and tantrums, but with patience and calmness he has got over them. I didn't react to the bites even though a couple drew blood. I wore garden gloves in the end and he gave up. Now we don't use them. We have a really strong bond and he is very loving towards me. He even let's me cuddle and kiss him. Quite an achievement! So anyone having a bit of trouble with their IRN, keep at it. :0)
@  Bob : (20 October 2014 - 09:53 PM) Hahaha bless her lol
@  divegirl : (20 October 2014 - 07:38 PM) I think she may have Tourette's syndrome :shock:

I think time may be the greatest healer here,  few more moults and hoping he shops the chewing. Has he got some good toys he can chew instead to encourage him to chew the toys and leave the feathers alone?

Try to whistle a simple tune Most male cockatiels will after a while pick up part if the whistle you will find that if a bird has a hearing problem it will normaly stay very quiet all the time.
