Hi, I’m Coco

PP number: PP947


Name: Chicken


Species: Ringneck


Cage supplied: No


Adoption fee: £50



Chicken came to me in a poor condition. Tail pulled out and flights cut, plucking feathers and cannibalising under wings that was infected . Unable to fly he has become immune to people and happy to sit in or on his cage if you if you don’t crowd his space. if approached he returns to the safety of the back of the cage. Chicken will never be silly hand tame but if a aviary could be found it would be ideal. Very quiet bird that is now improving in condition daily but work needed
