I've been reading here for a few months and have found some really helpful posts to help me as a new parrot mom!

I adopted an African Ringneck named Cotton at the end of March who just turned two. He's scared of people (especially hands of course). He also was very ill when I brought him home with a presumed Chlamydia infection and he's on a long antibiotic course. He's also a nudist ;) and removed allllll his feathers down to bare skin after a vet visit in April. He's currently working on growing wing and tail feathers back

He loves walnuts, exploring new cage setups, and destroying any soft wood he can find.

He's a total delight and I often spend my work breaks watching him on a pet cam

Here's a photo I took last week, trying to see how close I can get before he gets nervous. = this close

Welcome! And please keep us posted on Cotton's progress. My birds were so "hand shy" in the beginning. I remember how thrilled I was the first time one took a treat from my fingers!

I will likely be blabbing a lot about him - he is very clear with his body language and I'm not nearly as good at reading or communicating yet!

You and Cotton will figure it out together. It will be a beautiful journey!:)
