Indian ringneck parakeet
thanks for looking and for your help in advance.
I have a pair of indian ringneck parakeets both male and female.
the female is approx 4-5 years old, going back about 2 years ago she was nesting, looking after eggs (all survived) however due to her being in the box alot of time i was unable to see her.
when she started coming out the box more and more i noticed she had lost half the bottom of her beak. a complete side missing.
she is eating well and on foods such as cockateal/parakeet/parrot mix with fresh veg, the beak has never seemed to have caused her a problem, why would this have happened? the male is not aggressive towards her.
is it fair for her to put up with this? also she is nesting again, fresh paper everyday and no box, if she was to have chicks would she be able to actually feed them?
hope all that made sense
