New Bird Confusion
by Tammy Lynn
(Lethbridge AB, Canada)
last week somebody GAVE me a female goffin cockatoo. This somebody bought a mating pair of goffins thru the newspaper 2 years ago, The newspaper sellers aquired the birds seperatly over a span of 5yrs,the female tame, the male mean and aggressive. The somebodies brought the pair home to a large family in a small house with 10 cats ,2 lrg dogs and were fed sunflower seeds only.
After the dog killed the male the female was left caged and alone for over a year. This girl has had two different names, i wonder if i should use the name somebody called her or the name newspaper sellers used?
This girl is so different than any goffin i ever met, docile and quiet. she loves to be scratched inside her cage only, i could peel her out easily, but????? should i fource the issue? will she ever take fresh fruit and treats? use her feet/hands?
will somebody help? plz? Tammy
