Adopting A Bird
I am going to pick up a red headed conure Monday. The bird is about 15 years old. His parents were both older and they past away and the children have the bird. They hate the bird and squirt him with a water bottle every time he makes a noise.
The only thing I know about the bird is he has pulled out a lot of his feathers. I am guessing this is from stress, being in a bad cage and a bad diet... but again I'm not sure until I get the bird. I am planning on purchasing a new cage for the bird and providing him a loving home.
I was wondering if you had any advice for rehab for this bird? I'd really like to get him back on a good diet to get those feathers coming back. Do you have any suggestions on the best diet to get this started? I have a sneaky feeling I am going to need all the help I can get.
Thanks for your help!
