Indian Ring neck so skittish....."Mommy needs help"...

by Lynn
(Tampa , FL)

My Indian Ring neck is so leery and jumpy. It is like she can't relax. She was born in Aug 2017 and just now will get on my hand. Will sit on shower rod while I shower and sit on shoulder but when i sit she immediately tries to leave and get high up. Her tail has only 3 feathers and not sure if molting or not, could it be time for that? The breeder had "clipped" her when I had gotten her and she has yet to grow much and still just flutters to ground. If tries to get lift she only goes up about 6 -8 inches and right back down. Should her wings take this long to grow out? Sorry so many questions, this is first ringneck but have other birds

You will get your best help by contacting your breeder, that way you can talk on the phone or maybe even meet in person. One thing, feathers are replaced slowly, usually 2 times a year. The clipped feathers won't all fall out at once, you will see odd feathers coming in.
