I have a serious question I need answered about my ringneck parrot/parakeet. I got a pair I named Lemon and Lime due to their coloring. The female had her chest feathers almost bald on her chest and was told the male pecked them to try to mate with her. BUT after having them for awhile I’ve seen that SHE is the one pecking them off. WHY? She won’t mate with Lime and she screechs at him alot. She gets very loud and crabby when he comes around. He tries to be nice to her and he’ll gently nuzzle her and she’ll let him. But then that’s only seldom. Then she screeches and picks at herself. Why is Lemon doing this to herself? Should I separate them? But they’ve been together for several years before I got them. What do i do? Can some acknowledge this email and tell me. Sincerely, judyhurt4@yahoo.com
