Generally something seen on a hen when sitting on eggs, but lower down.
Is there something he leans up against when roosting or in anest box or something.
I notice his excessive long claws... kakariki do have longer than most similar species...but those are long.
We have brought back to health many abused kakariki over the yrs, associationally with very long claws... getting them on good diets, attending to all the other issues , cutting claws was down the list. Eventually once getting back to some sort of healthy condition and us getting ready to trim...they chewed the extra length off.
Take notice if your bird is 'attending' to his claws with his beak...if not I would trim them back about 1/3 at most. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
make use of the "quick search" block on the left
Suggest search for vinegar mites invermectin
And also look up taming
And a sticky thread called "what do u feed.."
If he his chewing claws then they will be annoying him... unlike rescued birds in very poor health, often not enough feather to fly that chew their long claws off that are most properly brittle and weak... your birds looks in overall good condition and may have issues chewing off.
For bu to 'relieve' him of an annoyance done with confidence, fore thought and quick is likely in the long term to be a little likely the guy who removed the torn out of the lions paw in fairy tales. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
