I have two GCC breeds and looks like they are mating, male Paulie he is about 4 years old, we got him a companion about 2 years ago Phoebe. Seems lien she is now ready to mate and they are having a blast. Very bonded to each other. I’m worried that lately I have seen Paulies wing hurt, is this normal? Maybe she is being aggressive with him?
meh seems to be fine other thanome of his wings is swollen. He still goes back to her and they continue to do their thing.
A few days ago I had to remove a damaged blood feather, void this be a cause of swelling also?
I’m worried, any feed back is appreciated, thank you !

I remember the first time I saw BUMP on one of my threads I walked off for a bit trying to understand how I should feel and react about someone responding with such a weird unhelpful word :confused: :roflmao:

Welcome to the Avenue Janine :)

Maybe they fell while mating on a perch, maybe an accident during out of cage time, maybe she bit him...

I think it is best you see your vet and get it checked out. In the meantime, keep a close eye on them and watch for any agressive behaviour from her toward him.

Is he bleeding?
I took him to the vet yesterday as emergency and she cleaned and trimmed some feathers that maybe bothering him. She asked to not clean or put any more ointment. She did give him some medicine for pain and swelling. Now I’m just concerned he has been picking at it more. I have tried to get some of other blood off but it is drying and at the same time he continues to want to poke at it . Not sure it I should clean the dry blood or just let it dry up and heal. ver want to see him again in a week
