    Default For Sale: Bird and Cage

    As I have said elsewhere my bird attracts pigeons etc from outside and as I want to get a pup I want to avoid contaminants such as those found in pigeon poop. In addition when I do move back home mum wont want him there - she really dislikes birds for some reason.

    Birdbrain is a 3 year old Indian Ringneck male. He would be suitable for indoors or for an aviary with other birds - he spent the first year of his life with other birds.

    He doesn't talk but does whistle and is trained to step up on your hand but will bite if given the opportunity - sneaky little bugger.

    I dont have any photos to put up atm but I will get some. I would prefer him to go to a home where he has some interaction with people as that is what he is used to. He is fine with dogs - will peck at them if they get too close.

    he isn't a particularly loud bird - he has his morning and afternoon session but I really dont notice him and he is sitting about 2 metres away from me. Ocassionally he gets too much while I am working and if I just say shut up her does.

    BB loves apples and Chili's as well as bird seed obviously. He is fairly clean - but the cage he is in does have channels that can be screwed in to collect all of the spillage - I havent needed to use them - I just vacuum once a week and clean up the ocassional spot of bird poop when he misses.

    I am asking $300 for BB and his cage. You would need to come and meet him or arrange for transport.

    If anyone is interested PM me or drop me an email at the usual place.

    I honestly don't want to rehome him but I would have to eventually anyway as I plan on moving overseas and he certainly cant come with me

    Occy I have never forgotten the last time I talked to you. You told me about Bird Brain, and from then on I wanted a ring-neck. Had the chance a few weeks back, but changed my mind and I'm getting Princess Parrots instead this time, which is not to say I wont ever get one or two.

    Probably before you said un-nice things about me on another forum Bev dear

    I have 3 now - birdbrain and the two birds I rescued from the pet shop - bird brain and the other male - called Fred (the female is Ethel) and BB squabble over the female who couldn't care less about either of them.

    Only fed apples, chilli and seed, sighhhhhh. I hope the next owner is a little more educated in the diet of birds. That is the same as feeding a dog cheap supermarket dog food and giving them the odd scrap.

    I suggest googling or joining a good bird forum to find out the facts.
    Birds need grains and veges, sprouts in their diet to avoid the threat of fatty tumours,possible kidney and liver problems, not to mention shorter life spans. But don't take my word for it, find out yourself.

    Pugger - I feed my guys what they will eat - they love apples - hate carrots etc - I feed them what they like and go on the advice of experts not wannabes. I wouldn't worry were I you - if you use the correct mix, seed is fine.
