Rescue Me ID: 16-01-31-00162Indian Ringneck

Pet Bird   

Compatibility: Good with Most Birds 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 

    Linus is an Indian Ringneck parrot that I took in as a foster bird almost 2 years ago. Based on coloring I think he is a male but he has not been DNA tested, nor has he been to a vet. He has no leg band. All I know about him is his owner developed Alzheimer's and couldn't care for him so a neighbor took him in. The neighbor passed him on to a friend, who passed him on to a sister and that's where I came in (the sister had a cat who was a danger to Linus). Linus has a very fun personality. He likes to play with toys (especially balls, he loves to chase them). He is a talker and a great whistler. Ask him if he is a good bird and he will tell ... (Read More)you all about it. Linus is a plucker. Since living with me he has grown a lot of feathers but he still plucks his chest. Linus has decided he does not like me. I have 3 other birds and he has attached himself to one of them and does not like it when I give that bird attention. Linus attacks me on a regular basis when he is out of his cage, and he lunges at me when he is in his cage. He does not act like this with other people. I have tried everything I know but nothing is working. I have a bone marrow disease and can no longer tolerate the scratches and bites that he gives me. I would really like for Linus to find a forever home where he can properly bond with his caregiver(s) and where his fun personality can flourish. I would prefer that he live with someone who has much patience and experience with birds. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Bird in Vermont
    Birds can make good pets in Vermont if they match your IifestyIe. Exotic tropical birds such as Parrots and Cockatiels, as well as Finches, Doves, Pigeons, and other varieties, are often kept in captivity as beautiful and interesting pets. Unfortunately, many owners may not know how to care for their birds properly, while others experience life changes that may leave their pets without a suitable home. Captive birds can suffer from nutritional deficiencies, psychological stress, and many other problems when they do not receive proper care. Many wild exotic birds are endangered as a result of the international pet trade. Non-profit bird sanctuaries provide homes for some birds for whom their owners can no longer provide care. However, many more of these birds need to be adopted by committed owners who have taken the time to thoroughly understand what it takes to care for the birds. A person who is ready for the responsibility of owning a bird should seriously consider adopting one rather than buying a new one.

lnteresting Bird Trivia Low-Cost Vermont Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Parrots mimic humans but do not mimic any other kind of animal in the wild. Most captive birds are unable to find a permanent home and experience some kind of abuse or neglect in their lifetimes. Parrots can die from exposure to normal household substances such as bleach fumes, perfumes, and anything sprayed from an aerosol can. Exotic birds can live to be over 60 years old.
