Hi, I think you're talking about an Indian Ringneck Parakeet, and the first thing you need do is to take him for an exam with an Avian(bird) vet in your driving area. There is a link on this site to help in finding one if you cannot find one in the phone book or by calling your regular vet. Do not take bird to regular dog and cat vet as they are not licensed and trained to treat birds and will not do a good exam and will not know how to treat any infections or other problems.

I'd also have basic blood work done to see how his kidneys, liver, thyroid and parathryoid are functioning.

He also needs to be on an organic, high quality pelleted diet like Harrisons' makes and Tracie carries that one and a few more out here. Make sure you choose the correct grind size for your bird's size, and it tells you when you click into the section.

Diet has so much to do with feather and skin condition, and here is a link to help you in getting him changed from seeds to organic pellets and it was written by an Avian Vet:

Switching Birds to Pellets article

Be sure to have him thoroughly examined by an Avian Vet BEFORE any kind of changes in diet or training as a sick bird cannot learn and will get much, much sicker if you let it go.

As for talking, yes, he will learn to talk, and it may take him a while to feel comfortable and to trust you, so give him all the time he needs. A healthy, well-fed parrot will be a joy for many years to come, so make sure his diet is high quality and that his cage is clean and large enough for him to spread out his wings and flap without hitting anything. Natural branch perches for his size are also recommended as dowels cause arthritis and hurt their feet and legs if they have to spend much time on them. You can find these with hardware already on them at most pet stores online or in town who carry bird supplies. Birds also like wood toys to chew on, and you can also find these same places as the perches.Make sure ALL toys are made for his size as small parts will be eaten, and then sometimes surgery is required to remove them or they kill the bird.

Good luck and write us again with a picture of your new bird once you get everything settled.

Linda
