I have a young male Vosmaire Eclectus (2yr) who is trying desperately to get over his fear of us. He was ill in Feb 2010 & had to be "toweled" twice a day to medicate him for three weeks. He was skittish before that, but the incident put him over the edge. He started plucking & is still frightened of us.
We have other birds in the birdroom all in their own cages. His is open all day. Is it best for him to be in that room, or would he be better off in the living room w/ us when we're in there? We'd like to bring him in w/ the others but he's so afraid, it's an ordeal of chasing him & herding him into the room. Once he's there, he's thinking of ways to get back to his cage. But there are times when he enjoys it w/ us & everyone. Sorry to be so long-winded. Thank you.
