I wasn't sure if I should post this in the health area of this site because while I believe my bird is sick its not physical. I am an extremely new bird owner,(only having my peach faced love bird for three months) after I'd done my research about lovebirds all that was left was to get one. living in a small town and not knowing of any breeders it seemed that my only option was to get one from a pet store (it was only until last week that I found a breeder in town.) so I went to my local petsmart to see what they had and they just so happened to have two rosy faced love birds. I went to text my parents (who were lending me some money) and that's when it happened... the instant I pulled out my phone both of them started going crazy, flying all around their cage trying to get away, I quickly put my phone back, slowly walked away and then texted them. The lovebirds freaking out should have been my first clue, my second clue should have been when the store was selling them for 50 dollars off. when I asked why they said their supplier was having a sale. so I got one of the lovebirds and took him home. Leo is still jittery, this bird does not want to bond! I've tried everything, I've read him books, fed him his favorite treats, let him out, I leave his door open so he can explore as he wishes but he still freaks out when I slowly raise my hand around him. It wasn't until a few weeks ago that I learned the reputation of the store. One of my friends got a budgie from there a few years back, after two weeks they found out the budgie was sick and passed away. Luckily Leo hasn't shown any signs of sickness but you never know. I was talking with someone who knows about birds so I was explaining the trouble that I was having bonding with Leo and so he asked me where I got him, after I told him he had a look of shock on us face, turns out one of his friends works there and while the employees know what they are doing, the costumers do not. almost every day grandmas come in with kids and don't pay attention to them. so the toddlers go around, poking their fat little fingers through the cages, shaking them ETC. its honestly depressing to think about because the employees try to get them to stop but there are usually different kids and they cant keep track. After three months I'm starting to have doubt that Leo will ever heal and I'm worried that he will be traumatized by humans forever, which I can't blame him for. a solution that I've read about is buying another lovebird, bonding with that one and hope the lovebird passes on that we wont hurt them to the traumatized one. But as a broke student I don't know if I can afford another bird. now I don't want there to be any confusion, Im very glad that I was able to save Leo from that awful place but I just don't know what to do. any suggestions?
