Ok thanks Dayle, It seems I'm feeding her the right amount. We had to move the cage into our spare room, I know they hate change of environment but the squawking is unbearable since her cage is in the living room. She's quiet and seems fine in there. I tried to spend time with her today despite the squawking but she's not playful at all, even though she comes running to me. Oh well, I'll call the vet in the morning and I'll see how we go. Hopefully they'll know what the problem is. Thanks heaps for all your good advice.

We took Ziggy to the local vet, they were a bit concerned but didn't know exactly what was wrong with her so we took her up the coast to an avian vet so she's staying there for a few days, he said that she's chewing her wing because of the bad clipping the previous owner did and he's also going through health checks and xrays so we know that everything is alright. They'll keep us posted everyday which is good :)

Hi Charlotte,

How's your Ziggy going? Is she home yet? I hope everything is ok with her. :)

Yeah they said that she's doing better, her droppings are looking better and she's started whistling again so that's a good sign, they're doing a wing transplant on her left wing, this will hopefully stop her from chewing. They've given her vitamins and told us heaps of good information about diet, training, breeding and so on. I think we're going to get a boyfriend for her as the vet said that it's good to do this before she hits puberty, she considers humans as her flock now and if you leave it too late she might not be interested in a bird partner anymore. I hope she's going back to her normal self, I miss her lil cute noises :)
