Hi everyone. So, my parrot is not fine yet. The vet wants to see her by taking her out of the cage. But I have heard that if an in tamed bird is handled by strangers, it dies. She never came out of her cage. No one not even me ever touched her. I haven’t clipped her wings because it seems so offensive and unfriendly to me to take her wings that are given to her by GOD. Also I’m afraid that as she is 4+ years old she might not adjust outside cage…
Please advise…

But my parrot screams and runs away from strangers. If someone except me opens her cage, she starts breathing heavily and her heartbeat become fast. Will she be hurted due to fear ???

A bird handled by a good vet will be ok. They are pros at getting hold of a bird (usually in a towel unless it´s a smaller bird). My birds are not tame for strangers and our the vet is great with them, he gets a hold of them, does what he needs to, then puts them back into the carrier.

No - a bird whether it is tame or not very, very rarely dies when it is handled.

She will adjust fine if allowed out if the cage. She may be frightened for awhile, but she will get over it and be a much happier bird. I can't imagine what she has suffered being locked in a cage for four years.

You need to do a lot of work with your bird to make sure she becomes happy and well adjusted.

Absolutely not!! My birds have always come to me happily (when they wanted to). that's the relationship you need to build with your bird.

Will you be able to get her into a carrier to take her to the vet?

If you are going to take her in her cage, then I would think that it is too small for an IRN, so it could help your relationship with her to get her a bigger one.
